I'm a platinum member and know when a hotel is over priced. I stayed 4 nights at an already high price.($144). I asked the manager what availability he had for the next week and was quoted $160. I don't like being taken advantage of. I found several nice hotels nearby for less than $130. I stayed there and will next... More

Most people don't think that Hotel Breakfast is ever good, they all eat it and then all complain, but this Breakfast was really good, the breakfast staff was very attentive to items as they were getting low and they didn't monitor how much everyone was eating like so many other hotels seem to do. It may have been the beautiful... More

I've stayed in many hotels in Colorado Springs, and while this certainly isn't the best hotel it is far from the worst. The rates here are lower than most in the area, and if price is what you're concerned about then this is the hotel for you. The rooms are clean. The staff is friendly. A full breakfast is included...

The hotel is not brand new, but it's in good condition. The room we stayed in was very large! Great views, close to the freeway, several places to eat & very near the academy. Garden of the gods is 2 exits away. Beds are comfy, staff is super, and I enjoyed it better than embassy suites we stayed at last... More

Our family loves staying at HIE&S (FREE breakfast for 5 anyone?) We had a two queen plus a fold out queen suite. The staff was helpful (extra towels, directions, etc.) The pool and hot tub were clean and extra towels were available. This location sometimes gets visited by a bear - we love Colorado! The only downside to this room... More

We were in Colorado on vacation and had been camping for days. We were ready for a hot shower, good bed and quiet room. We found it! This is why we love Holiday Inn Express! The night front desk staff lady was very helpful as well. She gave some great recommendations as to places we should check out!

We stayed here over a long weekend for a friend's wedding and our experience here was one reason our trip was great. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, and we found the room and hotel as a whole, clean. Room service was prompt and thorough. The free breakfast was great with lots of options. Per night rate seemed... More

The worst Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed at. Phones did not work and toilet would not flush. Combine all this with inadequate parking and it's a no win hotel. Asked if we could leave the hotel at about 8 pm and not be charged for the night but they refused.

Ratings for this hotel on Trip Advisor are fairly good, but we were disappointed. Only one elevator for a multi-floored and busy facility and, in truth, this place shows a bit of age-related wear. In terms of staffing, only one very-busy-though-cordial young man working when we were checking in, and one very-busy-and-rude young woman at the desk when we were... More

Hello TxTrvlr88, I'm sorry your recent visit was not what you expected. I understand how frustrating only one elevator can be in a busy hotel. Rudeness from our employees is unacceptable, even when busy, and that person has been spoken to. I am sorry we didn't have any coffee lids. I know we had an ordering error with our supplies,... More
