3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel is clean, rooms are reasonable size. Breakfast buffet was plentiful. For the cost, I would say that this is quite reasonable value for the money. Our chief complaint was the very noisy heating and cooling unit in the room. Because of the low-teens temperatures outside, it was necessary to keep the unit running all night. Much too noisy.

Definitely worth the price! All the amenities are great including the indoor pool, spa, and game room. Decor inside is beautiful. Breakfast buffet is awesome and provides healthy choices. I liked the hotel overall, but had a terrible experience in the restaurant with the staff and food. I recommend the hotel, but skip the Falcon's Bar and Grill.

I always have had a pleasant stay at the Academy. Lots of things to do and very friendly and helpful staff. Nice bar and good food also. Hubby and I travel with a German Shepherd dog and there are lots of walking areas and clean rooms. We'll be back!

Room 151 bathroom needs paint and there was a hole in the wall. Also housekeepers need to look under furniture for trash. Over all though it was a great experience. The staff were polite and helpful in all situations and the overall cleanliness was good. Love the hours for the swim pool and love the overall family orientation.

A very nice hotel. The staff is very understanding and they seem to know exactly what to do when you need something. Richard was working nights when I stayed there, he's a great employee. The breakfast buffet was very nice as well. The restaurant had a variety of things, which was nice because we were snowed in for a few... More

This was my 3rd stay at this hotel. The first 2 times were amazing-no problems at all. This time, I called reservations and asked for a two night stay (one room/suite per night). I asked for the Family suite and was advised that I can have it on Fri but not Sat. I accepted moving to another room for my... More

Nice hotel, excellent breakfast. My only three complaints. The beds have plastic bed protectors, which are annoying and sleep hot. Also, the rooms are way too dark, even with all of the lights on. Need to put brighter bulbs in the lighting fixtures. The bed in one leisure wing were so old and worn it sloped toward the headboard very... More

We had a very nice night at the Academy Hotel. We only had a couple of suggestions: 1. There was room service, but no menu in our room. 2. A Channel lineup would have been nice, too, as we're not familiar with the Co. Spgs channels. 3. Febreeze the furniture. The loveseat in our room still smelled like cigarette smoke.... More
