The bad - the hot tub was only big enough for four people. The bathroom in our hotel room was outdated and TINY. For a room for 5 with 2 queen size... More

We enjoyed our two nights at The Academy Hotel. We liked the uniqueness of the lobby/courtyard with it's fireplace, comfy seating, and, in the morning, excellent breakfast buffet. The breakfast in the morning was excellent and we were well satisfied as we headed out to a day of activities. There were some wonky things about the place that need to... More

Most of the staff was very accommodating, treated us kind and ensured we had everything we needed. Both Robert and Richard get mention for going above and beyond to give us what we wanted during our stay. The family suite is perfect if you are traveling with kids. Gives plenty of space for the whole family.

The hotel is fairly clean and modern and offers some decent amenities. The Falcon's Bar and Grille has a wide assortment of the usual bar fare as well as some interesting entrees. More of the dishes are prepared fresh vs. frozen or pre-made as they were in the past. Our server named Marissa was very friendly and took great care... More

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...
