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.

great for the price

Overall this hotel is great for the price. It's right off I-25 close to the AF Academy and right next to Chapel Hills Mall. My only complaint is that the walls are a bit thin and my neighbors were a bit wild. Other than that, it was great.

La'au's Taco Shop on Cache le Poudre and Cascade in downtown Colorado Springs is awesome. They have great Hawaiian-style tacos.

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.

Just used for a place to sleep

I just used the motel as more of a place to sleep at night as I was mostly out and about sight-seeing during the day. Overall the experience was good and the clerks were friendly. The only down part of the whole trip was that someone set off the fire alarm at about 4:40 in the morning, but I don't believe it was the fault of hotel staff. I believe one of the guests accidentally set off the alarm. Other than that I would still consider going back to this motel again if I'm in the area again.

Wal-Mart, restaurants and a gas station are about 1/4-1/5 mile away. Mall is about 2-3 blocks away, but still fairly close.

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.

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.

Average

This is an average motel stay compared to most. There is not any special, so if you are needing to stay for price, then stay here. However, make sure to ask for a for a room on the West side of the motel so you have a view of the mountains. It will make your stay more enjoyable:)

Three star value for the price

Enjoyed taking a dip in the non-heated pool. Bathroom sink light wasn't working.
