Not bad for the price

With the discount we paid, it was a great deal. We had a king size bed and stayed one night. See full review

Tourists

We stayed several days at the hotel for a combination of business and pleasure. The hotel seemed to be understaffed (often could not get attendant on the phone; more than once waited for >15 minutes for service), the cleaning service was deficient (short toweled once; linens smelled like smoke even though a non-smoking room), the room seemed a bit slimy/grimy, and the bed was difficult on the back. Relative to the price of other hotels it was probably a good deal, and it was minimally adequate for sleeping quarters... just not a place to feel comfortable.

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..

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 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.

Filled our needs, priced right.

The staff was excellent. Our GPS put us about two miles to the north of the motel. We called and they were able to guide us to the motel with ease. The staff said that GPS needs to be corrected because it creates a lot of hard feelings. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. One of the guests (a young boy) put it very well "slim pickins" We will definitly stay at Howaard Johnson's again in spite of the breakfast.

Needed a place to sleep for one night

Friendly staff, but kind of a dump. Room in bad shape. Furniture worn and cheap, bathroom needs attention, and towels are thinner and frayed and look worse than the rags I use for cleaning at home. Price was $29 - haven't seen anything this low in a decade
