“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Loved everything about this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was warm cookies every afternoon and delicious flavored water 24 hours a day in the lobby. The restaurant was very good and we enjoyed happy hour there both afternoons we stayed with great prices and drinks. The lobby and atrium area was fun and gave you a resort feel. No issues with cleanliness in both our room and hotel. The beds were super comfortable. Would stay there again and recommend this hotel. It is in a great location as well just off I-25 so easy to get around.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

we stayed here twice during the same vacation. The rates are really great, the breakfast is super, and the executive tower is worth the extra money, if you have the option. We had been upgraded our first few nights and we had an amazing room, memory foam mattress and a view of pikes peak! Also, ample electric plugs. The second couple nights that we stayed we had a room in the "leisure" building, kids running back and forth all night, drunk folks yelling in the halls, a comfortable bed, but the "view" was of the inside of the lobby. People could see into our room if we opened the curtain, and we had to unplug a lamp or 2 to have enough electrical sockets to charge phones/computer/tablet. It was a rather dark couple of days in that room. I'd stay there again, but I'd spend a little extra for the room in the executive tower.

We have been coming to this hotel for about 3 years now. The staff is awesome, beds are comfortable, and breakfast is unbeatable. We remember Patrick and his excellent breakfast omelets. They are awesome!!!

Staff seemed stiff and not as friendly. Wasn't pleased with my room. Housekeeping seemed inattentive and needed to tighten up. The lady who serviced my room with me in it was on her phone and speaking loud enough for the whole hallway to hear. Falcon Bar & Grill was exceptional with a decent menu and great prices for Happy Hour.

My first day at the academy hotel was back in August of 2013. I was on my way back to Denver from a wedding down south and decided to stop and stay in the springs for one more night. I found the Academy hotel and based on its price alone I decided to stay there and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff, and the overall ambiance. The pool, restaurant, free breakfast buffet are all great amenities provided. Recently this last week I booked 3 nights there and had such a great experience again that I ended up staying four nights. I highly recommend this hotel even if it was $50 more expensive I would still prefer to stay there then any other hotels in the area for that price range.

I stayed for five days and had a very pleasant stay. Friendly staff and located in a very nice area. The free complimentary breakfast each morning was really great. There were stores for gasoline and Malls nearby. Plenty of restaurants and access to many other stores right in front of the Hotel.
