Never charged for using safe before!

When checking in I was asked for a credit card imprint for "incidentals". I asked what this might cover and was told it was all outlined in the contract--1 signature and about 5 initials required. Categories were: damage-OK, phone calls-OK, not returning the key-OK and then $1.50 unless we specifically told staff at checkout we didn't use the safe-never encountered that one before. Towels were thin and all had holes, sheets were so worn they were transparent and the single blanket was stiff and therefore removed from the bed. Complex layout requires exit to exterior room entrance from the central building for most rooms. There are some interior access rooms but in the minority. This design seems a questionable choice for Colorado.

Great value

basic but what a price. Great for a cheap overnight stay in good location on the 25.

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.
