Howard Johnson Express Inn - Colorado Springs

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very dirty and very lazy no one changed out the towels or turned down the beds

If you are broke and need a hotel this will work. Not a great part of town. Lots of homeless nearby.

A budget hotel but with all the conveniences. Top shelf of fridge setting was a bit too cold and froze some items. Convenient location....would stay there again.

Cold night with no heat control, TV reception was bad, just old and run down.

Not the greatest part of this town. Staff extra friendly

Droid my stay was a quiet room other than musty smell

It's a Howard Johnson Express so don't expect 5 stars. And that's OK because I wasn't looking for 5 star. I just wanted a place to sleep for the night and shower while I was on Vacation. It was clean, comfortable and the staff was ready to assist when I locked myself out of the room ... twice ... in the middle of the night >_< I'm not that picky about hotels. I didn't go on this vacation to spend all day in my room. But I was satisfied with the room and it was at least everything I expected. maybe even a little more tbh :)

Friendly and knowledgable staff, nice beds, modern TV, easy convenient location and parking, I had a good stay.

Second/last day found out What bed bugs are, and what their bites look and feel like.

Nice room. Continental breakfast very minimal. Never had doughnuts that were gluey before :(

The motel was clean and the beds were comfortable even with my bad back. It's right off the freeway and located near downtown town which is good or bad depending on how you look at it. Personally, I really liked it but the wife was worried because there was some foot traffic at night around the motel. It's not dangerous plus there is a pool.

I wud stay there again. Yhe room was very nice and clean. The parking was a little small to get around. But yes i would stay again.

Great stay, very comfy and friendly staff. Will come again

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!

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.

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.

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.

The service at the hotel was good when I checked in and out .But they only had one towel for two people in the room .It was a average place for the cheap rate .

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!
