We are very sorry that you had problems during your stay at your hotel.

However, we have checked all records for June '13 thru Sept '13. and your name is not registered as ever being one of our guests.

We do hope that the hotel in which you stayed, has looked into the issues that you have pointed out, and make corrections to fix them.

Service Above and Beyond

The customer service at the Howard Johnson near the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs is exceptional. The staff is very friendly and has a strong desire to make your stay a great experience.

For example, the Wi-Fi went down on the general manager’s day off. The staff called her and shortly thereafter she arrived at the property to rectify the problem.

This general manager put guest satisfaction ahead of her day off. Impressive.

The hot, freshly made waffle you make yourself is a great way to begin a day. Oatmeal as an option would be a nice addition. A toasted blueberry beagle hits the spot as well.

There must be 15 restaurants within walking distance. The BBQ place is finger-licking good. Add to this, the super Walmart and a large shopping mall across the street from Walmart. All within walking distance. There is a place where younger children can play about 1/2 mile away. You can see the Air Force Academy from the hotel. It is about a 1 mile drive to the entrance gate. Pikes Peak and the Rampart Mountain Range is right there.

Great people, great location, easy access, safe.
