Good hotel, loved the location. Breakfast was amazing, with healthy options. It was clea. My only complaint was that the thermostats are on some kind of motion sensor, so when you leave the room, the temp goes up to 74-75. We called the front desk, maintenance came to check it out and explained that it was functioning right. When we walked by the thermostat, it would kick on, but after a few minutes, it was off again. The room was hot and stuffy. It did function properly at night and kept us cool. I'm sure this is a money and energy saver for the hotel, but the hot room was not ideal for guests coming back from hiking and outdoor adventures looking to cool off and relax.
We stayed two nights in one of their king suites. Really no separation from the bed and sofa, but always like any extra room when possible. Service was excellent here regardless of time of day. Best part about this place is how close it is to Garden of the Guards, Pikes Peak, Manitou Cave Dwellings, and downtown Colorado Springs. Room was $161 a night with tax. Located just of I-25 at exit 142.
