OK, no cookies at night and they charge $.25 per page for paper if want to print something using their lobby computer provided for guests. Those are my only complaints.
For the government rate of $80 per night, I got an exceptionally large and clean room with a king size bed and a real closet with a real door. Room also had a nice size desk, high speed internet, and a reclining easy chair like at home. Room was well equipped with m/w, refrigerator, hair dryer, coffee maker, iron and board. Good size TV (estimate 36" screen). Hotel provides shampoo and conditioner but no skin cream. Great shower head and high up, which at 6'3" I appreciate.
Nice spacious lobby. As noted above, hotel provides a computer in lobby for guests (no charge) but be prepared to pay to print.
Breakfast was OUTSTANDING. All the usual (cereal, coffee, juice, breads, etc) but also waffles (two waffle makers), Yoplait yogurt, very nice muffins, apple sauce, fresh fruit, and more.
Fortunate that large seating area cause a bus tour was visiting during my stay - apparently these folks love to show up early (like between 6:00 - 6:15AM) and since the bus does not leave till around 9:00AM they LINGER. Every table and chair taken - folks were sitting out couches, on coffee table, standing at check-in counter with plates of food, etc.. I don't blame hotel for this but if traveling on business and you note a large bus parked out front, be prepared. The good news was their were two people manning the food and coffee service and by literally running back and forth managed to keep all clean and all stocked. Yes, left a tip.
Like other La Qunita's I have stayed at, they only get a very limited number of free newspapers, distributed first come, first serve at the check-in area. If want a free USA Today, get there early.
Surprisingly beautiful courtyard surrounding pool and exceptionally well equipped, large workout area.
Hotel is about 10 minutes from a side gate on Fort Carson and is a good choice if traveling to Colorado Springs to visit there. Move theater and lots of restaurants nearby. May be a problem during Summer with kids in parking lot, coming out of movie theater, but not two nights we stayed there.
At government rate, with extra large room, nice lobby, excellent breakfast, etc., this La Quinta is a very good choice.
