“Great location, clean, quiet = excellent stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed here in the beginning of October 2012 while we were in town for an Air Force Academy football game and had an excellent stay. I’ve stayed at some Residence Inn's and found them to be dated but this property was either new or recently renovated – everything was clean and fresh. Breakfast was better than average for the standard complimentary offering at most hotels – several hot options and ample toppings for waffles, yogurts, etc. Very friendly and helpful staff as well – Sarah in particular was genuinely interested in ensuring our stay was a comfortable one. In addition, this hotel had the fastest wifi connection I’ve ever experienced.

If you’re in town for an event at the Air Force Academy, this is the perfect place to stay – quick access to Academy grounds. Add to that the low rates, quiet and clean rooms, and I’d definitely recommend!

You hear the planes in the morning, but otherwise a great hotel. Wonderful staff, clean, new and good location, especially if you want by the academy. Plenty of nearby restaurants and a shopping mall close by. Was easy to find.

Room Tip: mountain view room was awesome.

We booked a one-bedroom suite for one night as we were moving to the area. When we arrived we were blessed by the front desk attendant that we had been upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite. Awesome! This is a very nice Residence Inn with upgraded amenities such as an indoor pool and sport court. We took advantage of the pool with our two kids. They also had an evening reception on Wednesday with hot dogs, burgers, wine and beer, which saved us $25+ on the cost of dinner.
Breakfast the next morning was great as well with plenty of hot items. The hotel is close to I-25 and the amenities of north Colorado Springs. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed there for 1 night on a business trip. The hotel looks new - probably is. Very clean and pleasant rooms and public areas. large flat screen tv. Nice staff. Convenient to north Colorado Springs locations.

I selected this hotel as I was working in one of the buildings that was walking distance. Its not close to really anything but it not too far from everything in Briargate and beyond. The rooms were very clean and everything worked as it should. For a hotel provided breakfast (most usually suck) this one was actually very good and well maintained. Not five stars but a very easy 4 stars.

So I recently stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites across the street from the Residence Inn and thought I would compare them.

What I liked better at the Residence Inn:
1. Internet is way fast. After I reviewed the Hampton I received an email telling me they were upgrading their Internet service so it may be better. But for now, the Residence is way better.
2. Big, big rooms. Lots of space and a great place if you're staying many nights.
3. The Mon-Wed afternoon munchies. Nothing special (hot dogs, chili, nachos, etc) but if you don't want to go out for dinner it's a nice touch. And free beer/wine too!
4. Rooms are a little quieter.

What I didn't like about the Residence Inn:
1. Dogs. I love dogs, but prefer hotels that cater to humans only.
2. No luggage valet in the rooms. Had to place my luggage on the couch.

What I liked better at the Hampton Inn:
1. The beds. AWESOME...way comfortable!

A draw:
1. The service and staff friendliness. I will say that Pam at the Residence Inn was very friendly...great attitude!
2. Breakfast. Good at both locations.

So you can't go wrong with either hotel. If I had to chose one at gunpoint, I would go with the Residence Inn because of the Internet and the quieter rooms.

Room Tip: Top room for sure...and use the stairs, it's good for you!

Stayed here for two nights. Danny at the desk was fantastic helping us when we had a small problem in the room. In fact, anyone who worked there that we ran into were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great, and included in the room price. Location is good. We would stay there again!
