We were looking for a pet friendly hotel with decent rates. I wasn't really sure what to expect when we arrived but was very pleased! Not only were the rates reasonable the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The rooms are quiet and have black out blinds which were wonderful for sleeping in. The pillows are down and the beds...

We were here about a week and seriously there are only a few minor things that could have made our stay better. The staff is attentive and helpful.

Room location was not the best, ground floor no view at all! Location of hotel is just right for my family, since we wanted to be close to the Air force Academy.

Stayed here in July 2015. The lobby is very nice with an atrium and large sitting areas. The rooms themselves could use some updating with better lighting. Furnishings are tired and worn. The staff were helpful and friendly and with some updates this place could be great.

We stayed here the 17th and 18th of October 2015. Came for a concert in Denver but wanted to stay in Colorado Springs. Really close to the highway which was great! Staff was friendly, room was clean and the beds were super comfy! Free full breakfast and $10 voucher for dinner with good food! I'll definitely stay again.
