A wonderful vacation spot!

The hotel was located within 15-20 minutes of everything we had planned to see while in Colorado Springs. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive. The hotel was older. We had requested a non-smoking room but the room smelled strongly of smoke. The front desk staff was not very friendly and they were never at the desk when we had questions. But overall, it was a great vacation.

Great for price

It was a good, comfortable room for the price. No frills, but that's what I'm looking for.

Good Over Night Stay

Good place to stop and sleep. Lots of restaurants close by (walking distance), movie theater, etc. On business trip, however, and need Wifi connection to work and signal didn't reach room. Totally unacceptable if you advertise Wifi. I would stay here again but not on a business trip.

Annual Parent's weekend to Air Force Academy

The hotel is a great location for visiting the Air Force Academy and other Colorado Spring Attractions, but th owners need to invest some more money into new linens and updating the property. I would love to stay here again next year if they get rid of the smoking rooms and get new mattresses and bed linens.

Very Good Value

This room was one of the most inexpensive available in Colorado Springs, but surprisingly, it was very clean with up-to-date amenities. Easy access to I-25.

Older, but okay for a deal

We went to this hotel as a family for a weekend trip. It is older, so don't go expecting too much and you won't be disappointed. Most things were superficial, bathroom was old and door didn't close all the way, old furniture and mattress etc. Our room was clean though and had basic ammenities. FYI pool is very small, pictures are misleading, so don't plan on that being a major attraction to your kids. Our stay here was okay, but I don't think we would stay again... but then again, it was the cheapest for what we were looking for. I guess you get what you pay for with this one.

Family

This is the worst hotel in the United States. The rooms are nasty and smelly. We gave up our last night there because it was so uncomfortable. Everything in the room needs to be updated. They still have the boxed TV's and the bathroom is so small, you can't enjoy the nasty shower.
