SpringHill Suites Colorado Springs South guyonthego

The SpringHill Suites at the Colorado Springs Airport is a mid range hotel that was built in 2007. It has 4 floors and 101 suites/rooms. The hotel is nonsmoking and does not accept pets. It’s located about 3 miles from the airport but there was not an airport shuttle. The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast with a few hot items. It's one grade below a full-service breakfast.

Hotel amenities and rooms are consistent with what you would expect for a hotel of this grade. There is an indoor pool and workout room, though the workout room was quite small. A guest computer is available in the lobby. The suites are larger than a standard hotel room and include a sitting area somewhat detached from the bed area as well as a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator. As for the neighborhood, the SpringHill Suites is located in a business park that was quieter on the back side of the hotel. A TownePlace Suites is next door. There also is a nearby restaurant built in a Boeing KC-97 Airplane that looked moderately interesting. Views of nearby Pikes Peak from the parking lot are impressive.

The front desk employees were pleasant and helpful, and also provided suggestions and advice regarding local attractions. The room was clean and in good working order as far as the bathroom facilities and kitchenette. The room was a bit cold at night and got too stuffy in the morning. The bed was clean but was too soft to be comfortable. If you like a really soft mattress it could work. A conversation between the next door neighbors could be heard through the wall, and the sound of their door closing was noticeable as well. Traffic noise was audible in a room facing the main road in front of the hotel. The back of the hotel was much quieter. The SpringHill Suites provided decent value for the money. It was not stellar but did not strikeout either. Rates for a basic suite range between $100-130 depending on the time of year. Parking is free.
