Holiday Inn Express and Suites Colorado Springs First and Main
Ranked #24 of 105 Hotels in Colorado Springs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We stayed at this hotel while traveling in the area to see Garden of the Gods as well as a bike trip down Pikes Peak. It is a bit out of the way for both of those sights, but is a very nice hotel in a very nice location. It's in a strip mall area with Dicks, Ulta, TJ Maxx, Whole Foods - many other stores and restaurants. It was very clean and the breakfast in the morning was a nice perk.

Room Tip: You might want to ask for a room on the top floor. This was my only complaint. I didn't sleep...

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to families, but I think business travelers etc. would be fine. We had no issues with the cleaning etc.

Our room was at the end of the hall. It was early in the night around 8 pm. Our kids were still excited and jumping around. We were trying to calm them down when we got a complaint for noise from people below trying to sleep. A little odd for 8 pm at night, but we understood someone complaining at that point. We basically kept the kids on the beds at that point (aka no hopping or walking even). We get another complaint. Then the next morning the kids were being good just getting ready for breakfast, and we got another complaint. As my husband said the first complaint was completely justified, but the other two were baffling. We have family out of town so we travel with our kids a lot, and have NEVER gotten a complaint before.

I understand the hotel is trying to make everyone happy. This might not be the best match for families if we were getting complaints at the end of the hall for getting ready to go to breakfast, and the kids sitting on the bed at 8pm. In a nut shell, we were very happy to leave this hotel we felt so uncomfortable here.

I also as far as location I wish we would have stayed closer to Manitou Springs. It would have been closer to Garden of the Gods and other sites. As others have stated there are a lot of food options around the hotel since it is in a mall area.

Room Tip: If you have a family and decide to stay here try for the 1st floor and the end of a hall.

This hotel is situated on the corner of and in between newer strip malls. It's walking distance to some restaurants, a movie theater, Whole Foods, Dicks Sporting Goods and more. It's also a very short drive to many other restaurants and stores and not too far from Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak etc. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very pleasant. Our room was larger than I expected and had 2 tvs which our son thought was pretty neat. Also, we never had trouble finding a parking spot at the end of each day which was really nice. I'd definitely stay here again and I highly recommend this hotel!

Traveling from Texas to Winter Park. Broke up the trip a little by stopping in Colorado Springs. This hotel was a little off the beaten path as it's on the east side of Colorado Springs. The hotel was very new and clean; we enjoyed the shopping and restaurants that were all within walking distance. It was great after a long day in the car to get out and walk around the area; the area seemed very safe as well. Would definitely drive the extra few minutes to stay there again.

We have stayed in hundreds of Holiday Inns but this has to be the most contemporary one there is! The hotel is beautifully designed and decorated, the room has great furnishings and a ton of lights! Very spacious, clean & modern. It is located right in a town center with great shops & restaurants. Staff was friendly and breakfast area was nice, delicious muffins too!

Nice quiet place to stay. Mostly business people during the week which was nice. Friday night was a bit louder but to be expected. Great hot breakfast each morning. Ate outside one morning and one of the workers noticed and brought out the umbrellas for the tables. Very nice to be blocking the sun. Staff was very nice and made sure we were greeted upon leaving and arriving each day. Nice clean place to stay.

We were on a road trip through Nebraska and Colorado and stayed two nights at this hotel. It was very clean and very comfortable. The room was a nice size, spotless and had nice furnishings for a motel/hotel. The pool area was nice and clean as well. Breakfast both mornings was good and as expected for a continental. Only complaint was the first room we were put in the air conditioning would not work. They took care of the problem by moving us rooms and the new room was on a different floor so a little annoying to have to move all our stuff, but this was a good solution to our problem. I would stay here again anytime.
