Reservation was messed up, told that there was nothing that could be done. Then charged an additional amount for a roll away bed....hotel was noisy. Would not recommend to anyone. Not worth the money I paid. Will never stay at this hotel again. Very dissatisfied.

I agree with some others that this hotel is not as great the review would indicate. The breakfast was wonderful and the pool was good for the kids, but was not large enough to accommodate all the families wanting to use it. The property itself shows signs of age and lack of attention to maintenance (broken taped up glass in... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel from 7/7 - 7/10 (3 nights). I was most excited about this hotel, having read all of the reviews, and booked 1.5 months in advance. I was more worried about my last minute (one week prior) Expedia.com deal for one night in Denver. Most surprisingly, my last minute cheapo one-nighter at a... More

As always, the accommodations were great (and we even got an upgrade this trip)! Staff was pleasant and helpful! Location is great to all the things we love to do in the springs! We will keep coming back whenever we're in town!!!

My family and I are from Ohio and took a 2 week trip out west. 4 of our nights were spent at this hotel. We booked this hotel because of it's price (less than $100/night booked on Hotels.com) and because of it's breakfast buffet. We were impressed from the moment we walked into the hotel. The staff was very friendly... More

Closet doors were off the hinges, bathroom smelled like someone peed all over it, iron did not work, and coffee pot did not work. They told us at checkout since we did not report ALL of the things wrong they could not do anything about it, which is sad cuz we've stayed here before, but not any more.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Academy Hotel and found it just as appealing as I did the first time. The hotel is a little older however the walls are solid. Even though the hotel was quite busy we did not hear any noise from other rooms. The beds are comfortable and they have a nice breakfast... More

An older hotel/motel that's still in ok shape. Pluses - nice beds, 50" TV's, wifi, free breakfast buffet w/made to order eggs. Minuses - restaurant not too good, in room coffee awful, indoor pool seriously over clorinated, and general maintenance just so so. But not a bad value especially for a family trying to feed kids.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel with our grandsons. The staff was efficient on check in. We were given a $10 voucher for the restaurant, which we used for treats later in the evening. The grandkids loved the indoor pool. Our room was VERY clean and comfortable. With so many people and families I was afraid it would... More

Overall we really loved our stay at the hotel. From the moment that we checked in we felt very welcomed and comfortable. The staff was helpful and very polite. Our room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. We did not have a view with our window, it was of the lobby, but that actually worked out in our benefit. With... More
