“Indoor pool and FULL breakfast buffet! What's not to love!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

The facility is gorgeous! I felt bad to be wearing flip flops and shorts but oh well. The mood in the evenings is relaxed and fun, a touch on the fancy side. The rooms were a little smaller than average but we still got two queen beds! We were very pleased with this hotel, and hope to return sometime soon!

Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Nice amenities like pool and lounge area. Breakfast was excellent. Room was clean. Shades in the room kept the light out making for a sound sleep after the sun rose. Cleaning staff even tucked in our daughters' stuffed animals after making the beds. ;)

Don't let the exterior fool you, sure this hotel as been around awhile but it's the inside that counts. As soon as you walk in, you will find the hallways, lobby, and the whole interior in general both clean and well kept up. Modern, clean rooms, with incredible beds (the pillows were perfect,) will surprise you considering the competitive pricing. Staff was friendly, and always available. The breakfast was the best I have experienced yet. Make-your-own fresh waffles, and omelet chef, breakfast buffet (which included bagel barieties, hot cereal, several kinds of dry cereal, fresh fruit, French toast...)
They start serving at 6, and don't start to get busy until 7, so we had it mostly to ourselves.
Indoor pool (saltwater) and outdoor jacuzzi. Also, game room and huge fireplace lounge area.
Of course, an honest review also includes any negative accounts. Only two: the room didn't have any view, but that's just because of the layout of the building, and just depends on where your room is. The bathroom drain in the tub drained slow, not serious, but we notified the staff on checkout and they made a note for maintenance.
Overall, good hotel, good price, good experience. We had two couples sharing the room, and all four of us agreed it was a great deal and good experience. Will definitely recommend this to anyone traveling by here.

Loved everything about this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was warm cookies every afternoon and delicious flavored water 24 hours a day in the lobby. The restaurant was very good and we enjoyed happy hour there both afternoons we stayed with great prices and drinks. The lobby and atrium area was fun and gave you a resort feel. No issues with cleanliness in both our room and hotel. The beds were super comfortable. Would stay there again and recommend this hotel. It is in a great location as well just off I-25 so easy to get around.

we stayed here twice during the same vacation. The rates are really great, the breakfast is super, and the executive tower is worth the extra money, if you have the option. We had been upgraded our first few nights and we had an amazing room, memory foam mattress and a view of pikes peak! Also, ample electric plugs. The second couple nights that we stayed we had a room in the "leisure" building, kids running back and forth all night, drunk folks yelling in the halls, a comfortable bed, but the "view" was of the inside of the lobby. People could see into our room if we opened the curtain, and we had to unplug a lamp or 2 to have enough electrical sockets to charge phones/computer/tablet. It was a rather dark couple of days in that room. I'd stay there again, but I'd spend a little extra for the room in the executive tower.

We have been coming to this hotel for about 3 years now. The staff is awesome, beds are comfortable, and breakfast is unbeatable. We remember Patrick and his excellent breakfast omelets. They are awesome!!!
