Stayed here based on other reviews. Definitely won't stay here again. The list of faults is endless. It starts with the front desk's security plexiglass shield with the voice holes just giving off that air of a low-rent dive in a dangerous neighborhood atmosphere. Cozy! Then there's the so-called non-smoking room stunk of cigarette smoke. Hack! Of course, with the room's stench of smoke, the A/C's filter perpetuates the smelliness of the room. Free Wi-Fi? Yeah, right. Only if the manager turns on the Wi-Fi modem. If they don't want to, better have your iPad or Smartphone. The bed was hard and lumpy, with slabs of concrete passing as pillows. I've been more comfortable while I've slept out on the ground while camping. The sheets and pillowcases had spots of dried blood on them. Lovely! The refrigerator was so noisy that I had to unplug it to get some sleep. The shower head was not adjustable, so if you want to set it to any other stream, tough. The tub faucet handle didn't adjust the water temperature of flow very well. But the best part is the tub with black smudges throughout it, looking as if it hadn't been scrubbed in about 6 months. The bathroom sink had no faucet aerator, so water would splatter everywhere. And then there's the towels with the dirty black smudges. I guess that's so they match the black smudged tub.
It's not the absolute worst dive I've ever stayed in. But it ranks in the bottom five of the dumpiest places. Someone mentioned waffles. Nope. Not there. They had a few muffins and some other bread things, and the coffee tasted like stale, watered down grounds. You want waffles, then go down the street a block south to The Waffle House for a better breakfast. You don't stay in a motel for waffles, you stay in a motel for sleep and a clean room. And this place doesn't fit that need. Next time I stay in Colorado Springs, it won't be at this place, and it never will.
