Called me with rooms with double queens when they became available and switched us to those. Awesome! Great stay! We alway choose the Academy hotel when we travel to Colorado Springs. The environment is tops. The free breakfast buffet is to die for!!!! The staff is ALWAYS friendly and the breakfast chef is a fine man with exceptional talent!

This hotel needs cleaning and to give their waitresses better training in how to greet and serve the public. Some of the serving staff in the waitress were unprepared to pleasantly and efficiently greet the public Our room didn't have a room service menu and neither did the desk outside the restaurant. The elevator too forever to get to our... More

It was great to know this was a pet friendly hotel, and the first dog charge is free and the second for only $10 more, a lot better than other hotels that charge anywhere from $50-$150 deposit. The people at the front desk were great, the bathroom was not very clean, and there was no where to walk the dogs,... More

I found nothing wrong with our rooms or service or food. However, hallways could be vacuumed more often or better and hallway tables, etc. needed cleaning. Ramp carpet into the dining area has an 8 inch~ loose area that could cause a trip and/or fall. Food was great and free breakfast plus coupons toward dinner was greatly appreciated by the... More

Friendly staff w quiet room and comfortable beds. The property itself is in desperate need of remodeling! It's really falling apart. I would be happy to pay more for improvements that are so very needed! I love the approximation to academy and the breakfast is awesome!

Nice clean facility with friendly staff. Not real fancy but an excellent value. Just outside the south gate of the air force academy making it an ideal location for cadet parents. They have a great buffet breakfast that is included with the room.

A dated older hotel. Our room was decorated to be updated but cramped and the bathroom had a horrible smell. They were very gracious to switch our room due to this but it was the same awful bathroom smell in the next room too. It was not a clean hotel, I had to just look away. Our son enjoyed the... More

The rooms definitely need a facelift. Wasn't impressed with that at all. I've never stayed in a room where the walls were the color brown, on purpose. The front desk missed one of my wake up calls and the housekeeping wasn't the greatest. The restaurant did have good food though. They had a very nice breakfast buffet with complimentary vouchers...

We have been staying there for the last few years. We showed up to check in and found out that they don't accept cash any longer. So we were told if we had no CC we had to stay else where. I emailed the OWNER and he never got back to me. They don't care how they treat you as... More

I needed to stay in CO Springs on last minute notice and I was very happy with this hotel selection. The rooms are very clean, it was quiet, I got in a good workout in their fitness room. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area, I know I will.
