Oh My!

Broken heater/AC, filthy pool, shower that hardly works. Description said mini fridge and microwave in room.... Neither of those were there. If I had somewhere else to stay while in Colorado Springs, I would have left my first night there!!! NOT recommended!

Think Twice About Staying Here

My siblings and I were attending our family reunion in Colorado Springs. We just wanted clean, inexpensive rooms to sleep and bathe because we would be spending most of our time with our family. What we got were a few cockroaches, and bed bugs that bit my brother. We did not see the the bugs until our last day or we would have left. Need I say any more? Howard Johnson needs to check out this motel.

Great price and not bad

This hotel was so cheaply priced I was fearing we were in for one. Not so! It was clean, comfortable beds, remodeled and room service was excellent. We went to a lot of attractions so we opted for a budget hotel since we were not going to be around much. We paid 160.00 for 5 nights. No room for complaints at 35.00 per night. We will return.

Perfect for a one night stay

The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ordinary but good. I would stay here again. Good place for business stay. The internet was slow hooking up but once on it worked great.

The room was not comfortably clean. It was non smoking yet I can smell the smoke reeking through the walls from the next rooms. Room service never came.

This Hotel Need to be Closed ... period!

This hotel is not only horrible for location but it is just super, crazy dirty. Bathrooms are so dirty, I just left the hotel as soon as I saw that. My room was non-smoking and it smelled like an old smoke pit. The health department would have a hard time keeping this establishment open ... put it that way!
