Hotel is near the entrance to the Air Force Acadamy, my overall experience was good. Very cheap room was found, ($30 total!) check in and check out process went without a hitch. Bed linen was clean, towels were clean, bed was comfortable, all the lights worked, all plumbing worked fine- good water pressure. In room heater/ air conditioner worked fine. Now for the problems- safe door did not work- no batteries/power. TV remote would not work- it would only go to the "pay" channels- could not access the "free" programming- no problem-though, just used the free WI-FI instead! Had two channels to choose from- speed was not super fast- but I did not get kicked off either. Overall surface cleanliness was good- carpets had been vacuumed, but the carpet needed to be steamed cleaned- the bottom of my socks looked like I walked 3 miles down a dirt road. Chair in room was dirty/stained enough that I did not want to sit in it. Did not try the free b-fast so cannot comment on that. In room coffee maker worked fine, ice machine worked fine. Room I had faced east on the third floor, in "main" bulding with the lobby. Could hear cars driving on the busy road all night- not much the hotel could do here- I think the new road was recently widened for increased traffic. There is a Wally world across the street- and several fast food restaurants close by. Overall my stay was good- I would stay here again- with slippers, and could recommend the hotel to others- with the above comments.
