Fun time for two

The room was clean and in fairly good condition. The tub was not. It was pitted and patched with pieces breaking off in the water. The light over the sink was very dim, which made shaving and applying makeup quite a challenge. However, the rest of the room was more than adequate. It was a good room for the value.

Good price

This motel is a little dated. The rooms seem clean. One problem that we found was that the breakfast area was too small to accommodate all of the patrons. The breakfast was satisfactory with pastries, waffles, fruit, and cereal. There are several eating places near the motel for the other daily meals. The motel is located central to several tourist areas like The Garden of the Gods and the Air force Academy. The mountains provide breathtaking scenery everyday. We would stay in this motel again for the price that we paid..

Great location

This is a hidden gem. Located near all your needs and in a good area. Small and limited breakfast but for the price it was nice that they had one.

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.

Good Price; Excellent Location

Years ago, this hotel used to be part of the Red Roof Inn chain. It's slightly rundown, but still a good deal for the money. I previously lived in Colorado Springs and used to work near this area, so I knew what to expect. Contrary to some reviewers, I had no problems with the staff. Be advised that a microwave is available only for an additional fee.

The hotel was clean although it was a little older. I just slept there so it suited me fine.
