The Academy Hotel has a great location with a beautiful interior look and a very friendly staff. Our family had two rooms. One was a little nicer than the other, with a bigger TV and memory gel mattresses. They both had mini fridges and microwaves. The one room could have used some touch up paint here and there. The free... More

There are many really good qualities to this hotel: guests receive a $10 off meal coupon if you book directly; the included breakfast has a made-to-order omelet station among the plentiful selections; happy hour is decent; the rooms are well appointed for the price point; all employees were extraordinarily helpful. Like someone else said, I was put off that the... More

We have family here and stay often. The Academy Hotel has become the place we always want to stay. We always stay in the executive tower in a double queen. The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable.The beds are SO very comfortable!!! The indoor pool is perfect for the grandkids. The breakfast buffet is outstanding, and watching the omelet...

This is our second stay at this hotel. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The hotel staff is kind and caring. Their breakfast is out of this world. We will always stay at this hotel. My husband says the only thing missing is robes in the rooms. Other than that it's a great affordable hotel.

Upon arrival, hotel appeared very classy, efficient staff and very nice decor. Unfortunately the indoor swimming pool is situated in an open environment in the restaurant area, culminating in screaming children in the pool whilst others playing chase through the bar and restaurant. Not conducive to a relaxing evening meal, would not return here.

The Academy is not really a luxury hotel for those who really want a luxury hotel, but if you have the pockets for that, go to the Broadmoor. Otherwise, for the rest of us, this is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are clean, comfy and quiet, and the breakfast continues to be top notch. It's not much... More

The Academy Hotel is located right off I-25 making it easy to navigate the city if you're from out of town. We drove from Wisconsin to Colorado and staying in a hotel right off the freeway made finding our way back to the hotel in a new city easy. The first night we stayed, our room was one that had...

On the upside the beds and pillows were comfortable. The location was convenient to what we wanted to do. This establishment had an excellent restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The lobby is immense, sky lit in the daytime, and comfortable. Unlike Estes Park, the staff was American. On the down side, the bathroom was small and could only hold... More

The first couple of years, our experience was fantastic at The Academy Hotel. Last year, we saw small changes but hoped to see improvements coming. This year we were met with a strong urine smell when the room door was opened and you could directly link that to the bathroom (filthy tile: imagine what looks like black grout...until you look...
