“Awesome hotel for family stay:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had a wonderful experience at The Academy Hotel (aside from one front desk agent being a tad rude), overall it was very nice. Amenities were great. BREAKFAST was fantastic! Great value and we will totally stay there again if we come back to Colorado. Two thumbs up!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view. It was really nice!

Green Features: We appreciated the efforts of the hotel to be GREEN! Keep it up!

We look forward to staying at the academy every summer when our daughters play in a softball tournament. Great location, the girls love the pool and we love the breakfast! Hotel is within walking distance of stores and great resturants

Website looks great but it turn out to be poor. I reserved a block of rooms for my softball team several weeks in advance, but when we showed up, the owner wouldn't put us in the same part of the hotel. Team was scattered around. Two rooms had blood stained sheets and pillow cases. Two different rooms had bloody boogers on the pillows and bedspreads. One room had men's clothing in it. All in rooms for 14th old girls. The exit door next to our rooms would not latch or lock leaving the building open to anyone and there were piles of beer cans next to the door. I complained and they said "sorry, we'leal the owner." Lobby is nicely remodelled, but rooms are still $90 rooms, which is fine because all we really wanted were clean and safe rooms. Don't trash this place with your families.

Your staff is awesome. They make your stay feel like family from the check in desk to the restaurant. We really enjoyed our stay. The price was worth it. We utilized most of your services. We really liked the restaurant and you have a wonderful breakfast. The gentleman that made our omlette was great and so was the omlette. We stayed with you because of a wedding that you reserved rooms for the guests of the wedding. It was great. Thanks for everything.

My mother and I stay here every chance we get when we are in Colorado Springs. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the staff helpful. The Breakfast is one of the highlights of the trip and it comes with the room! You get a fresh home made omlet, made to order, fixed right in front of you, prepaired by Cheif Patrick and I have not eaten better omlets then his! Plus you get an entire buffett as well! Will stay there every time im in town.

Green Features: Excellent. One of a few that have recycling...........

Overall, I think the hotel has promise, but the graveyard person was terribly rude. He was demeaning and very unhelpful, they overcharged my card, and I tried to ask him what happened. His response was- "I can't help you, management will be in at 8", no attempt to help, no customer service AT ALL. I came with a group and there were four of us who had a similar experience with him. On the last morning, instead of a receipt, he put a rude picture under my door because he was angry that I disrupted his work. Because of the way he treated our group, I will never recommend this place again. The only amazing customer service I received was from a front desk person named Jonathan who went out of his way to make our experience great. The graveyard person should lose his job.

The hotel staff were amazing, the energy and excited attitude they showed made the trip twice as great. The only fault I would have to say was out of the hotels control, there was another hotel that slightly deminished the mountain veiw, again I know this is beyond academy hotel's control so I would not blame them for this. Definatly a great hotel to stay in.
