The lobby area is huge and very very comfortable. The environment is very welcoming and friendly. The pool is clean and kinda in the lobby which sounds weird but is very nice. It allows me to sit at a comfortable table and still keep an eye on the kids without having to be right at the pool. I love that...

We arrived early evening and were welcomed and told about where to park for easiest access to our room. We went to the restaurant for dinner, the wait staff were very friendly and happy to help. The room was nice, beds were comfortable. There was plenty of choice for breakfast, hot food, cereal, waffles, toast and freshly made omelettes. Walking...

Had to stay here because of a group volleyball tourney. Location was great but This hotel needs a major update and remodel. It's old, dark and noisy. Bed wasn't bad but bathrooms were. Staff was nice at the front desk and breakfast. Not the worst place I've stayed but It's just old.

We stayed 3 nights and found the hotel staff to be very accommodating and helpful. The hotel is very close (walking distance) to all types of food establishments, shopping mall, Walmart, and movie theater. The pool was nice and so was the lobby fireplace.

Lobby was nice. Pool was fun for the kids even though they only wanted to swim one night. The chlorine can be smelled in the lobby area but I guess that is expected with a pool. Room was decent, we had to ask the front desk to not have the cleaning lady spray whatever they use in the rooms while...

Great hotel! Breakfast buffet is very generous, many options. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I didn't have a chance to try the restaurant, but it looked like a good option. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband stayed at the Academy for 4 nights and it was awesome. The rooms are large and very very clean. We stayed in a pet friendly room, and it smelled fresh .. no odors at all. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The Academy was the best hotel we have stayed in, and the price was very reasonable

We arrived around 6:30 pm Friday night. Exhausted from our day as we packed our entire life into a U-Haul to move back to California from Colorado. Anticipating a good night's rest, we ready ourselves for the night and as we lay in bed, the neighboring room is filled with loud TV sound, two grown adults speaking as though they...

We go out of our way while travelling to stay at this hotel. The rooms are nice and the memory foam beds are great. My husband would like to buy one. We were slightly disappointed the hot tub was out of commission but for us the breakfast is what sets this hotel apart. The individual specially cooked omelettes keep us...
