My husband and I booked this hotel in celebration of our anniversary. The check-in/out process was super fast and easy and the front-desk staff was friendly. We booked a king suite which had two rooms: a sitting area and bedroom and were very pleased with it. The sitting area had a 32" flat panel tv, a desk with very comfy chair, free wifi (had no issues connecting at all) , queen sofa sleeper and sofa chair. The fridge was surprisingly large for a mini and there was a microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom was a good size and there was a rain showerhead. My only complaint was the water pressure was really low and it would ebb and flow (from low to lower). The bedroom was a good size and also had a 32" flat panel tv, closet, 3-drawer dresser -- we totally did not expect there would be 2 tv's in the unit. The bed was comfy. We arrived Friday evening and the pool was closed until Saturday afternoon due to some chemical issues. As mentioned in other posts, the sea salt pool was small, but was still adequate and we had a nice swim. The property has a quaint patio area that runs on the backside of the property with a spectacular view of the mountains and Pikes Peak.. We sat in the hot tub under the stars and it was amazing! There are several seating areas: one by the hot tub, one around the firepit which is really nice at night and separate area just off the breakfast area. They offer a nice complimentary breakfast with the usual items, plus biscuits/gravy, fruit cups, yogurt, jimmy dean sandwiches, quiche, waffles. The breakfast area is really nice with a few separate eating areas...tables with comfy padded chairs, a separate living room style area with a tv, "bar seating" or you could dine outside with a lovely view of the mountains. The styling of the hotel was contemporary throughout with a nice color scheme (blue and green). Overall, the room felt very "homey." The hotel is actually located in south Monument, just north of Colorado Springs which makes it nice and quiet because you're not in a full urban area which lends itself to seeing the stars at night when you're out on the patio. Getting to the hotel was easy, just off the highway. Our car battery died while there and one of the laundry ladies gave us a jump and then stopped us the next day to inquire if all was well, which was a nice touch. We can't wait to go back and highly recommend this hotel.
