Drink in the scenic view of Pikes Peak and Fountain Creek at Days Inn Manitou Springs. This upscale Days Inn is nestled along a scenic, gurgling mountain stream. Our new lodging partner is a non-smoking hotel located just off Highway 24, less than 2 miles from BBI and very close to many area attractions. Despite the motel being less than 5 years old, the owners are already investing in up-scaling and renovations as they strive to have the best Days Inn in the state! Coming soon - outdoor gazebo with seating around open fire pit, surrounded by elaborately hand-carved totem poles.
