“Incredible service at an older hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

The service at this hotel is as good as I have received at some 5 star hotels. From the receptionists to the housekeepers and everyone in between was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is better than I have had at any other free breakfast, it included mto omlettes, waffles, burritos, etc. The pool area is nice and it is heated. The kids loved this. The rooms were clean but the hotel is old so there were things like stained ceiling tiles and some burns on the sink but everything was very clean. Overall I would stay again bc of the service and this time I would check to see if they had any updated rooms instead of hte older ones.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Our 12 year old granddaughter found this hotel on the internet to replace one that we had already booked. When we then read reviews about The Academy, we decided to go with her find instead and were SO glad that we did. The hotel itself is so lovely and was so affordable that we are considering taking our grandchildren there again this year. They especially loved the pool, which is located in the huge lobby of the hotel. Breakfast buffet (included in the room rate) was one of the best that we have ever had, with a class A chef to cook eggs to your liking. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. Staff are customer-service oriented, making you feel that they are glad to have you at their facility. There are so many family-type activities in the area. I could go on and on......the Academy is simply magnificant!

Room Tip: If you need adjoining rooms, ask about the Executive rooms on the upper floor.

While on the way from the Denver airport to the Colorado Springs area my friend remembered passing by this hotel months earlier. As luck would have it there was availability for the night. The cozy fireplace was ablaze which set the atmosphere. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast buffet which was included in the nightly rate was WONDERFUL! This is not your typical buffet...the chef was on hand to make omelets and the buffet was extensive. If you are in area do yourself a favor an put this hotel on your list. It is in close proximity to the Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak.
