“Upscale Residence Inn and a Million Dollar Vista”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

This hotel is near the North Gate of the USAF Academy, just north of Colorado Springs. When we walked into this Residence Inn on a weekend night just before Christmas what a pleasant feeling the reception and dining area gave us. It was decorated for Christmas with the fireplace mantle, every table and the chandelier all nicely adorned. The service was very good and when we went to our room we were greeted with a MILLION DOLLAR VIEW OF THE FRONT RANGE OF THE ROCKIES. We're looking forward to returning on our next trip back to Colorado Springs.

Room Tip: You will want to face West. Pikes Peak and the Rockies are there. Sorry the photo isn't better...

From the warm greeting we received by the staff out making the hotel festive hanging Christmas lights; to the check in, empoyees stopping in the hallway to say hello; the great housekeeping staff; the managers supper; the hearty breakfast; up to date and fully operational workout equipment and fun swimming pool area this hotel does everything right! I wish more hotels were operated at the level and precision this one is. Many other hotels could learn from what they do to serve customers at this hotel. Very impressive and so nice to feel valued by a hotel. Thanks to all. The bonus-this hotel lets you bring along your dogs (they love having dogs in this hotel, many of us staying there had dogs) and they have lots of open space in and around the hotel for our dogs to get exercise.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with a fireplace! Wow, this was nice! Room was very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 kids. The kitchen is updated, clean and looks as it it is hardly ever used. The bathrooms have a fully vanity with granite countertop and storage drawers (yes!) and the shower has very nice granite as well.

The only bummer (and its just really small) is the pool area does not have a hot tub. After a long day, it would have been very nice to go and relax in a hot tub before bed.

Room Tip: Hotel has 4 floors, we stayed on 4th floor with a view to the south which was excellent. Very quiet.

The only reason I am giving this hotel a 4 star instead of a 5 is because of the sleeper sofa, which I had to sleep on. Not the most comfortable bed I have slept in. Other than that, our stay was great. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. The included breakfast was decent and the coffee was fresh. We really liked the full kitchen for our nighttime snacking. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and are very likely to stay here the next time we come down to the Springs for business.

When I got to the hotel they greeted me, and were extremely friendly. The hotel room was big and open, with room to spread out. I had a solid work area, a kitchen (though I didn't get a chance to use it) and a good sized bedroom. This is the second time I've stayed here and I'd do it again and again.

I stayed here for 5 days during a business trip. Everyone from the front desk to housekeeping was very nice. The room was clean with no problems other then curtains that don't close all the way. They offer a pretty good free breakfast every morning with cereals, muffins, and several hot foods. They have a manager happy hour every Monday-Wednesday that includes wine and beer and some average bar food type stuff. Great trip overall.

We like to stay at Residence Inns because of the full breakfast and nice comfy rooms.
This one was no exception.
As always it had good service, nice amenities and a good breakfast.

I did find a hair on my bed but I figured it could have been one of the maids. Hopefully.

We went on a week long vacation staying in multiple Residence Inns in different cities. Although we were happy with all of them, this one was the best. The front desk staff was very polite, pleasant, efficient, and helpful regarding the surrounding area. The room was perfect. The best part of this Residence Inn compared to the others we have stayed in was the light meal and beverages they served in the evenings. We are used to the continental breakfasts, but the light meals offered were really welcomed at the end of a long day. Each day we were very active with local attractions such as hiking, biking, climbing & rafting. We always had intentions of going out to dinner, but by the time we got back to our room, we were too tired. It was nice to be able to slip into some comfortable clothing and walk down to the lobby for a burger and a beer. I also particularly liked that there was a soda drink machine that offered soft drinks in the evening and at breakfast because I am not a coffee drinker.
