Very pleasant experience

The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice. The location was beautiful. And the breakfast was great - not lavish, but delicious.

Stayed 12 days everything was fine. This is a no-frills hotel.. You get what you pay for. I need a safe, clean, cheap place to stay for a business trip... That's exactly what I got.

Great Hotel Value!

Hotel was conveniently located at the north end of Colorado Springs. The location, amenities and room comfort were average. However, the room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Additionally, for the price they charge it is the one of the best values in Colorado Springs. Based on the above, I give this hotel 4 stars!

Good location, good value

A clean hotel with all the basic amenities, great location in northern Colorado Springs near I-25. Friendly, helpful staff. Free breakfast included juice, coffee, hot waffles, muffins. Not a luxury hotel by any means, but my wife and I were quite satisfied with our experience.
