I read somewhere that this hotel was recently renovated so didn't pay attention to the older negative comments. Seeing that they had both a continental breakfast as well as a fridge and microwave standard, I was shocked to see the low price, as these money-saving options usually force the price up. The continental breakfast was the standard c.b. that I've encountered EVERYWHERE else I've stayed that offered c.b... bread, toast, bagels, waffle batter to cook, fruit salad, sausage gravy and biscuits, cold cereals, juice, coffee, etc. Only yogurt was missing. On top of that, we were able to save money by buying some foods at the grocery store with the fridge option, to fill in the meal gaps.
The staff was as friendly as family.
The room was kept very clean and well-stocked. Everything smelled clean. There were stains on the carpet in the hallway, but I didn't sleep in the hallway. Plumbing worked great - only the bathroom fan was out (and I forgot to mention it to the staff). We had a TV and it worked fine. The room was slightly small, but enough for a king bed, desk, dresser, table and chair - very sufficient.
The area and the rooms were quiet enough to sleep well.
The location was was on Platte Av, which intersects several major thoroughfares so getting anywhere in Col. Springs was easy and we could get to the area at the base of Pike's Peak within 20 minutes. Every major American store and food chain was within 5 to 10 minutes away, yet the location at the hotel suggested it was out away from anything!
I was unhappy with only one thing.... The "fitness center" which is advertised was one small room with a treadmill, bicycle and an all-in-one fitness machine that I didn't feel like taking the time to learn, but when I tried what I could understand, it felt very crappy and cheap. Basically, if you have a gym membership, you won't want to use this.
With only that one minor negative detail, I have to say this was a very positive experience - we stayed one whole week and had no problems.
Highly recommended for the value.
