This hotel was right off the highway, and didn't look spectacular from the outside. Once we got inside... the staff was friendly, the lobby/atrium was very welcoming, and there is even a fireplace in the lobby! The room was cozy, and the food at the restaurant was great!

My husband and I stayed at The Academy while on our way to a campground. We wished we would have spent the entire trip at this hotel - it was SO much fun! We spent the evening having drinks and watching some baseball in the hotel bar during happy hour - great drink and appetizer specials! The bar/restaurant staff were... More

I was disappointed with the cleanliness of my room. I laid towels down on the bathroom floor because there was an odor of urine and yellow spots on the floor. Also when I walked out of the bathroom, I got poked on my foot by a carpet staple poking through the carpet. The hotel is beautiful and the pool is... More

This place has a great breakfast with an omelet bar and other great options you don't usually find with other hotels free breakfast. The rooms are clean and decent size. Good pool but can get full at times.

The price was reasonable, the staff was friendly and very helpful, but the room needs some improvements. The pull out sofa was ok for a very young child but I would never put an adult on it. We had a great time, just don't expect it to be as nice as a Hampton Inn.

Before booking, I reviewed several hotels and compared prices and amenities. This one seemed reasonably priced, had several positive reviews, and breakfast included. Upon arrival, we noticed they had a large parking lot with surveillance cameras, a plus. Check in was speedy and staff was friendly. We stayed in a family suite. It was clean and had ample room.

We held a family reunion there and the downstairs area and restaurant was great. The rooms are large and the TV is the largest I've seen in a motel. But when it came to room equipment that is where they really let us down. In our room the frig had been defrosted, and their was an inch of standing water... More
