Very nice property with a variety of room choices from standard to suites. They have a full service restaurant and a bar on the property. The breakfast is a full on buffet with omelet station - not just a muffin and cereal thing. Very nice, attentive staff. Close to shopping and other restaurants, and the USAF Academy. If you're looking...

This hotel is lovely. Staff were very friendly. It has an inside pool and a bar & bistro. Our room was nice and roomy. My only complaint was that I could hear the traffic and aircraft. It is located near the airforce academy. Breakfast was good and I would stay here again.

Caring Staff, Older Rooms, Good Breakfast, Nice Bar area with plenty of TVs to see your favorite sports. Coupons are great...keeps the guest enjoying the bar and restaurant areas. VERY nice touch when they gave us a welcome 'snack' bag upon check in for USAFA Parent's Weekend.

A true home away from home where guests feel cared for from the minute they walk in the door to fresh lemon water and orange water waiting for them, to the friendly service of ALL the staff, to the pool, the restaurant that has pretty good food (and coupons to eat there, and a nice happy hour), to the filling...

We stayed here for Air Force academy parents weekend. The hotel itself is old but we enjoyed our stay. Front desk, maintenance and housekeeping staff were very nice and meet all our needs. No need to bring shampoo, conditioner or body wash because it is supplied throughout your stay along with coffee. Room also had small refrigerator and microwave. Water...

I booked two rooms at this hotel based upon the pictures I've seen here and on Hotels.com. The check in was fairly easy and the front desk staff were helpful. The condition of the general areas of this hotel display signs of major wear and tear. The carpets throughout the hotel is beyond filthy. The furniture in the lobby are...

Robert and Richard were amazing in the service they provided. I arrived from the airport at 11pm. A king size bed had been reserved. However, with additional family member arriving a roll away bed was needed. The hotel was packed and all roll always were being used. Robert and Richard knew this was not going to work and quickly took...

Very friendly and helpfull staff, great lobby area. Great deal on food if you book through the hotel. Rooms seem to be up to date and clean. I also like that they use soap dispensers, not plastic bottles for soap and shampoo in the bathrooms.

Stayed in the last week of August for about 3 nights. The hotel is a complete package. Peaceful location, great views as soon as you step out of the building, close to the highway, good food places nearby, Walmart right across, has a temperature controlled pool, jacuzzi, game room, Wii, wide spread breakfast buffet and great rooms. Dont think it...
