I just want to compliment ALL of the service staff at the Academy Hotel. Everyone, from the cleaners to the bartenders were so incredibly nice. I do not believe I have ever stayed at a hotel that had such wonderful, courteous, friendly staff members!!!! Thanks to all!

From check in to check out the service was exceptional. The breakfast buffet including made to order omelets were fantastic, all the employees were friendly and courteous. The kids loved the indoor pool and outdoor hot tub. The food in the restaurant was delicious. A wonderful experience for all.

The rooms are affordable and the reservation process was quick. It is easy to find the hotel and it has ample parking. The staff is extremely accommodating. I typically stay at Embassy Suites but would recommend the Academy over the Colorado Springs Embassy suite. Much more affordable and has room available.

This property seems a little dated, and could benefit from a thorough maintenance program. For example, our door was hard to open, the bathroom door knob was tricky and caused you to feel like your were trapped in, the hallways seemed dark, the doors to the "back of the house" were propped open so that we could see the laundry...

The friendly, helpful staff is awesome! A breakfast buffet with made-to-order omelets by The Omelet Man was the highlight of our six days at the Academy Hotel. Belgian waffles, French toast, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, and much more are available. The breakfast area is spacious with real plants and trees. We enjoyed $10 off dinners there too.

We really enjoyed our stay here! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The whole hotel is a little outdated, but it's fine. The breakfast was a great addition and there were a lot of options.

Great place to stay. Very friendly staff. Good place for families to stay with a nice pool, table tennis and foosball. The room was nice and plenty of room. I liked the dispenser of soap and shampoo in shower and the soap and lotion dispenser in bathroom. These little things help save the environment. The bed was a little too... More

Property is a bit dated, but our king bed room was spacious, comfortable, and the bed was super comfortable. Our 2nd floor room had no outside window; instead it opened onto the central indoor lobby/pool/restaurant area, and had a shade for privacy. Consequently it seemed rather dark. If you like to let in sunshine, ask for a room with outside... More
