My husband and I (and our dog) stayed at this hotel for two weeks. We are very picky about which hotels we stay in and we have stayed in Residence Inn Mariott in Miami, FL and Chester, VA, and so we knew that this hotel would be perfect for us and our needs (military on the move).
We loved our one bedroom suite (with a spacious living room and separate bedroom), two TVs, small kitchen, dining table, desk, couch, closet space, and nice vanity. Our hotel room was facing the mountains and for two weeks, we had a wonderful view of the sunrises and sunsets!
This hotel is located in a very nice area (this was also another reason we decided to stay here... safety!). We enjoyed a quick drive to the main shopping areas, restaurants, and the interstate is right next to this hotel (without the extra noise!).
The hotel provided daily breakfast (nothing fancy, but it was satisfying) and also hot dinners, including wine and beer on certain days. We saved lots of money just by eating at this hotel.
The staff was extremely friendly! I reserved this hotel way before we even moved to Colorado and the receptionist was nothing but sweet, informative, and helpful! The check in was smooth, the hotel provided everything we needed, and the check out was very quick.
Our dog also enjoyed her stay at this hotel thanks to the spacious rooms! (The only negative comment I have - which is completely our fault - is that we were placed on the top floor and so far away from the stairs. This made it very inconvenient to take our pet outside as she did not like the elevators. So, if you are planning on staying at this hotel with your pet, be sure to request a bottom floor room or at least one that is close to the stairs). This hotel (and all other Residence Inns that we have stayed in) charges one-time pet fee (whether you stay one day or 14 days) of $75.This is a great deal, especially if you are planning on staying long-term. But... we would pay this fee even if we have stayed a couple of days. This hotel is worth it!
The Air Force Academy is only a couple of minutes of a drive from this hotel and Fort Carson is about 25 min. and so is the Peterson Air Force Base. If you are military, this hotel is especially great for a long term stay and offers a military rate!
I would like to thank the wonderful staff for making us feel right at "home!" We appreciated your attention to detail, great service, clean rooms, and friendliness!
