This Hotel was very nice, we enjoyed our time in Colorado and can't wait to go back. We were close to everything, Our room was nice but the housekeeping came late in the day I would rather they got to the room early mid morning when we are out, the second day we got back around 3:30 and still no...

We wanted to stay close to the tourist activites and this place is close. Basically the only positive. Our room was dirty the entire time. One day we requested a sheet change that never happened and the trash was not taken out. Still had not happened when we returned the next day at 3 pm. Finally after a discussion with... More

Hotel smell as soon as you enter the lobby, smell of mold or mildew, the same can be said about the room. Breakfast was very unorganized, there is one omelet chef for over 250 guests, and food gets cold while waiting for the omelet to be ready. There is no coordination between restaurant employees. I ended up going to a... More

The hotel was very clean and nice. The value was great. I paid $72 per night and the amentities compared to a Holiday Inn where you would pay $130 or more. The breakfast was good and free. Free Wi-Fi too.

First Impression As others have mentioned, the lobby area is a pretty atrium, with live trees and fountains, a comfy lounge-ish area with fireplace, and seating for the extensive breakfast buffet...oh, and, of course the indoor pool. Location is very convenient to the interstate, shopping, restaurants, and the Air Force Academy. The property is a bit older ('80s?), and it... More

The breakfast selection was one of the best we've experienced.The staff was effiecient and friendly. Just need to keep the plates stocked. The room was comfortable. However, the a/c was noisy and difficult to control. Our room was not cleaned until after 4:00 each day and 2 of 4 days we had to ask for the correct number and type... More

I would recommend staying here if you are a family. Not luxurious by any means, but fun for kids to run around and adults can enjoy a drink from the bar and still watch their kids swim or run around. The pool was nice, but the hot tub was out in the scorching sunlight and no shade... it needs to... More

Check-in: The guy in the front was very friendly and courteous; he was helpful for just about everything. Deserves to win "Most Respectful/Respectable 2014" award, hands down. Room: A lot of points deserve to be docked in this department. Our room had a giant cover on the window, which can be manually moved to the side, but still gave the... More

I loved the pictures on the internet. i guess my expectations were too high. the biggest problem was that we had no housekeeping service over the weekend (almost 3 days). our stay was 8 nights. we called for towels, and although the front desk promised to relay our request to housekeeping, the towels never appeared. I called several times, every... More
