The Econo Lodge is the only major hotel in the small eastern plains town of Calhan, CO, and has a pleasant, countryside setting on the edge of town along the main road (US 24, 5th St). The lodge is quite small - just 29 rooms, all on the ground floor - and has basic facilities of free continental breakfast, free internet access, and some rooms with microwave/refrigerator. For other meals guests can walk a few blocks west to the two main restaurants in town. There is one interesting park in the area, the Calhan Paint Mines
, while the many attractions around Colorado Springs are just 40 miles away.
