I drive to Colorado quite often and this is my definite stop on the way to and from. It is awesome and I just love it! The rooms are comfortable, the staff is friendly, the breakfast is free and good, and it's quite convenient. Highly recommended.

Rooms are large. Breakfast is great variety. Lots of places within walking distance to get food. Movie theater within walking distance. This is located off the busy interstate system and is exceptionally quiet. Family friendly hotel and very business friendly too! I attend business meetings here 3 times a year and always have been satisfied with exceptional service.

My great experience started with a phone call. I called and asked if we could get in early..."You bet!" was the response I got. Then I got there early and they said, "Let's see if we can get you an upgrade." They upgraded my room with just a King size bed to a King Suite that was AMAZING! This is...

We stayed in the room with the king bed and jacuzzi tub. It was very clean and beds were cozy and now I really want red plaid wallpaper. The kids had a great time with the indoor/outdoor pool and the pool was well heated and clean. Breakfast was ok, typical hotel hot breakfast. Overall we would stay here again and...

We chose this hotel because of the availability of unique themed suites. It did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and the food was great. The fireplace and whirlpool tub helped to create a romantic atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this hotel for anyone coming to the...

We stayed in one of the cottages rooms for our 25th anniversary. We had pre-paid for 3 nights and ended up leaving after 2. This place has the potential to be great, but a few things just ruined it for us. The major thing was the bed, and this was the primary reason we left early. The mattress was so...

My DH's family gather here every Thanksgiving & we stay several days & my MIL rents a conference room for our celebration. Our stay is always pleasant, comfortable & welcoming. The decor is kitschy & a little over the top, but since everything else is top-notch, should be forgiven.

Wow is the one word to describe my stay. Making personal reservations was easy. The look and layout of the hotel surprised me in a wonderful way. Bed was comfy, room was quiet, hallway traffic was minimal, continental breakfast was fantastic with change to main entree each morning.
