“Prep Graduation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Very close to air force academy. The cook for b/fast omelet wears a unsanitary gloves. Its not even a cook's gloves. Be careful you might get a lot of germs on your omelet. Very Unsanitary!!! The staffs are friendly. The dining hall serve good food with reasonable price.

Stayed one night while on business in Colorado Springs. The property is well-maintained, rooms are clean and quiet. I had mountain view from my room. The staff is professional and courteous. Very pleasant stay!

With a convenient north-city location in Colorado Springs (near the AF Academy south entrance) and one of the best included breakfasts I have encountered in a hotel, the value was excellent. I am always busy late into the night in the area and never seem to be able to use the $10 voucher for evening food and drink; that voucher plus the breakfast really make this a great buy. I have stayed here a few times before and have always felt the same way. Friendly staff, good rooms, remarkable value...a nice place!

Room Tip: I found that the 4th floor was quieter than the lower floors I have used in the past.

The facility was good. Other reviews describe the condition of the rooms and other amenities well. We stayed on the 4th floor for the Mountain View. It is pretty good, but another hotel adjacent detracts a bit from what we were expecting. The value of the overall experience was excellent with the daily restaurant voucher and the breakfast set up.

The one area we had was the inconsistent performance of the staff. Most were great. But a few really were not too concerned about how they impacted guests. Housekeeping was inconsistent. Not a huge deal to pick up the phone and get things addressed. One day; no housekeeping. Went to front desk at about 5 pm who was a little dismissive initially, but agreed to help. At that point, all we wanted were some clean towels as we hadn't messed up the room that much, could stand a little trash, etc. Not too much later one of the service staff came up and we exchanged towels, and then told me that housekeeping was going to get to our room -our part of the hotel was at the end of the rounds despite the fact it was very obvious no cleaning carts or staff had been on the floor at all the previous hour since we had returned to the room. Again, big deal? Maybe not. The other encounter was around the elevator when a group of housekeeping staff had blocked off the hall with their carts which prevented movement to the elevator of the stairs and were either on their cell phones or complaining about something related to work - but weren't too concerned about providing some access to the hall and acted as if I was a nuisance to them simply trying to get down stairs. Maybe this is all petty, but the potential for this to have been an outstanding stay was stymied by more than a couple of folks who just didn't seem that interested to the extent you would hope.

The Academy Hotel was worth the gamble. It was very clean and attractive. I got my bang for my buck! I would definitively stay here again! The front desk clerk was very informative. The breakfast was an added bonus, omelet chef!

Pleasantly surprised with the decor and overall feel. The breakfast is phenomenal and if you book through the hotel directly you get an additional $10 voucher per day for food and drink! So take at least $10 a day of your cost per day for the breakfast per person! And an additional $10 per room for the voucher! Really nice place and incredible value for the cost!!

First I would like to say I am very particular about my hotel stay when traveling. So with this being said I wasn't impressed with the room 223 because it was a bit old. I presume that because we took one off the online specials we got this room. Though it served its purpose of resting it was not what I expected from the pics. HOWEVER!!!!!! The service was outstanding!!! From the desk to the restaurant. The chef from the egg station acknowledged us from the moment we came into the area. The free breakfast was awesome. They had servers who picked up your plates. There was a sausage, egg/omelet, hashbrown and waffle station. They have a business center that allows you to print your coupons. Hot tub was nice and hot in the nice cool air. We didn't do the pool but glad to know it was there. It has an upscale feel with a motel price. Love it! Also its convenient to everything around. If you book directly through the site they give you a $10.00 voucher off dinner each night you stay. If you need a place to stay this is it. 2 stories no elevator so keep that in mind. So overalll this was the best hotel experience! I
