I called the late afternoon before driving to the hotel and asked for an early check in. The girl up front said that the king rooms were full that night but the earliest we could check in would be 1pm. I had explained to her that I would be on the road for 13 hours and had had been awake that morning since 4am. Taking her word for it, my family and I headed to Colorado Springs after I got off work. We arrived an hour early so we ate at the Denny's across the street until 1pm. So at 1 pm we go to check in and the girl up front tried many times to contact the cleaning crew and had no luck. After an hour of waiting the cleaning supervisor shows up and our room had still not been cleaned. At that point I was frustrated and just wanted to leave but could not get refunded. So we had to wait. I was so tried from being awake for almost 36 hours. Finally around 3pm (normal check in time). We were able to get our room. The girl up front handled my frustration well and the maintenance guys that helpped with our luggage were awesome and very friendly. Even though the outside, just off property, was a little spooky I felt secure within the hotel. Not a bad place to stay just not where I would stay next time. Sorry.
