We were traveling over the Christmas holiday. On the way to our relatives' house, we stayed at a different hotel in C Springs that was rated very highly. I was SHOCKED at the state of the hotel and vowed never to stay there again. So, on the way back home, I tentatively booked The Academy Hotel (also rated highly...but now I'm totally suspect of these ratings given my last stay) and crossed my fingers.
I'm very pleased to say that this hotel lives up to its ratings. We were in the "pet wing" which wasn't much to look at and does not have an elevator (I had to carry my 15 year old dog up and down the stairs...but then again, I have to do that at home too) but it was CLEAN (most important) and comfortable. And they actually serve a REAL breakfast in the morning. What a welcome and unexpected surprise. I will definitely stay here again and would recommend it.
