My family and I stayed here for one night for a family vacation. The hotel was clean and nice but the staff was not very helpful- we had problems with our room and they didn't do much to fix it. They do have a great breakfast but overall wasn't the best experience.

We contacted the front desk around 9 pm after a long day of hiking to notify them that our air conditioning wasn't working and it was 85 degrees in our room and windows can't open. Took one hour for "maintenance" to come up and say yep, it doesn't work. I'll send someone else up. One hr later someone shows up... More

Our first room had fruit flies in the bathroom sink. The front desk was apologetic and moved us immediatly. King suite was very roomy but small improvements (dinged up hangers and dressers) could have made it shine. The pool is in the lobby so that is a little odd. I would not have felt comfortable using it. More for kids... More

Family vacation to Colorado Springs. Blood on the comforter which was changed once reported. Room bathroom smelled like urine. The smell was reported multiple times but never addressed. Needless to say we checked out early. I would not recommend this hotel!

So, visiting the Springs to see family and The Academy hotel was recommend. Issue number one occurred when I received a rate quote over the phone that suddenly jumped $20 when I got to the counter. It was rectified but still.....moving on. A big selling point is that they have an indoor pool. It is a floating cess pool. I... More

Very pleasantly surprised by breakfast (similar to Embassy Suites). Room is average. Very tight with rollaway bed for a 5th person in the room. Our building didn't have an elevator. Front desk service was ok. Had to ask twice for the rollaway. The guy bringing the bed was great.

No fussy lobby here! This lobby is where the action is at. There is The Pit that has a fireplace surrounded by cushiony chairs. The best free breakfast ever is set up in the lobby. Patrick the Omelette Man was amazing. He had 5 omelettes cooking but still have time to show you where the butter was.

we almost always stay here - unless they are booked- when we do entertainment away from home (another 100 miles away) - the FREE breakfast is wonderful and we love Patrick the head chef, - indoor pool (have never used, but always has people in it) - quiet! and also a $10 food voucher at the Falcon Grill the evening...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great experience. The room was very comfortable and clean. I loved the room darkening shade since I don't like light shining in when I am trying to sleep. The breakfast was the best on our two week trip. They have made to order omelets, waffles, eggs, sausage, ham, muffins, and more.... More

Don't let the exterior fool you; this is a great choice for a family vacation in Colorado Springs. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and courteous during our stay, and our room was clean and well appointed. With a fridge, coffee maker and microwave, it had everything we needed for our two night stay. The kids... More
