We stayed here one night as we traveled from Washington state to Georgia. Very "80s" feel, but I loved it, having grown up during the 80s. The bathroom could've been cleaner (there was hair and grime on the counter,) but the bed was cozy and or room was overall clean and comfortable. The lobby, pool, and restaurant were all open...

This is our 4th time here and we've always had a great stay. The staff are helpful & friendly and the hotel is clean. You can't beat the price if you're traveling with 4 legged critters. They have a full breakfast including omelets to order and it starts at 6AM every day of the week. We will be back.

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.

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.
