not good

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.

You get what you pay for

I've stayed here a few times and have had mixed results. I've stayed in their best suite, business room, and regular room. The regular room didn't even have soap or shampoo. Had I not had my own it'd could have been bad times.

A mixed Bag

A low price stay for us. We liked the price , but were not impressed with everything. The room was made every day. Fresh towels daily. Location was great for our activities. Easy Highway and Downtown access. Minuses: Continental breakfast was disappointing. No hair dryer in the bathroom. Toilet and bathroom fixtures are old. Turning on the bathtub water every morning to take a shower produced murky brown water for a few seconds before running clear. The floor at the bathroom entrance has sharp objects sticking out (No barefoot here) There is an odor in the room, we had the fan running everyday.

STAY AWAY

Horrid place and didn't even spend the night. They refused to provide a refund. Transients defacating in the parking lot and others looking in cars. Police were phoned and said they frequent property often. Manger refused to take phone calls. Front desk staff said crimes occur there often.

Poor Howard

Motel in very poor shape. Located in an old motel strip with several others in similar disrepair. Some Outlets didn't work. Light fixture cord jury rigged with black electric tape. Twikkers hanging out on arrival and again when departing in Parking lot. Only a couple blocks away neighborhood changes for better.

Comfortable and Clean

Room was comfortable, get what we paid for. Previous reviews mentioned hearing trains, we did not. It is a hotel that is used by those who are working in or around Colorado Springs, Had no problems with neighbors. For one or two days fine, not good for anyone with children. Close to Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak

Comfortable and Clean

Close to I-24 for Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. Reading other reviews Review sent in Sept 2012 did not match the location, such as close to train tracks and homeless people. The hotel did show that some were workers living in the hotel. All were quiet and did not make stay unpleasant. Plenty of hot and cold water for shower, towel supply good. Room very clean, staff very helpful for things like more towels. Rooms don't seem to be sized for more than two people or animals. If you are looking for nothing fancy and only staying for one or two days would recommend, otherwise would advise before recommending
