I stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. The rooms were nice and there was a good sized, clean pool, an outdoor hotub, a bar and grill/resturaunt, an arcade, and a cozy relaxing area next to a fire. Breakfast included many tasty items including egg dishes, hams, french toast, and many more. For those who were wondering, the...

Room was nicely upgraded; the bed is very comfortable! Pretty good sound proofing; the hotel was full with the corvette club and didn't hear a thing. Always enjoy the nice breakfast, it sure beats the continental breakfast at other hotels!

The location was nice and the room was clean. The bed linens were fresh each day which was nice as well. We are not fans of the the shampoo/conditioner dispensers as they are not the most hygienic in our experience. We'd recommend individual, miniature bottles instead. There was some water damaged areas on the wall around the tub/shower that probably...

This hotel is perfectly located near anything you need and perfect if you are visiting the Air Force Academy. The hotel itself seemed slightly dated but was very clean. They have a pool as well as a neat free Wii station set up in the lobby. My little guy and I played for a bit which was fun after a...

Our family reunion was based at this hotel. Most of the out-of-town attendees stayed there and we also had a hospitality room and dinner venue. I talked to Suzy and Paige for the group rate and the dinner. We were on a tight budget and used the "Build a Buffet" for the dinner. Paige did an excellent job for the...

We stayed here for 6 nights for a family vacation with a 4 year old and a 1 year old. The hotel is close to Garden of the Gods and other attractions. Also close to a lot of restaurants, a mall, Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, etc. The rooms are nice, the fridge is handy and the breakfast is a real plus...

I have a hard time staying in hotels and seeing the amount of waste that occurs in a day, including trash, water, energy. This hotel is very pretty but a little dated and does seem dark (probably to save energy), which adds to a feeling of dinginess when you're there. But overall, I was so happy with the efforts they...

This hotel was depressing. The room was dark and it didn't help that they only put half the bulbs in the hall and bathroom fixtures. Maid service never came our first night. The room was clean but in the halls and out side there was grime everywhere. Full trash cans at the back entrance. There are too many choices to...

This is an older hotel that could stand to be updated. My only complaint was the bathroom door wouldn't shut properly and the shampoo despenser wouldn't work. The room was clean, spacious and comfy. Good pillows. Breakfast was outstanding. Along with the usual eggs and cereal, they offered an omlet bar, french toast, sausage, biscuits, gravy and the works. The...

Was a nice place to stay after being up in the mountains for several days -- hotel was clean, located near a variety of restaurants and stores, and an easy drive of an hour to the Denver airport. Breakfast was very nice.
