The room was quiet, with comfortable beds and overall a good experience. I was with a few friends to celebrate a birthday for one of them. We needed some extra chairs in the room and they brought them to us. Very friendly staff.

We stayed for three nights while in town helping our daughter find an apartment. The location near the USAF academy is great. There are many restaurants and shopping areas near by. The staff was very nice and the breakfast buffet is very good, definitely more offerings than the typical complimentary breakfast served at most hotels. The hotel itself could use...

It is very conveniently located off of Highway 25. There are lots of businesses/stores around to get daily needs accommodated. Room was clean, enough room, with a comfortable bed, no complaints. The view was on the other hand, not good. Yes, you see the beautiful mountain range, but there are lots of business signs in front of them. Breakfast was...

Breakfast buffet was wonderful...lots of choices. The made to order omelets in the buffet were so good. We had dinner in the restaurant the night before and the food was amazing. The bathroom was a little small but there was a separate area with a mirror outside the bathroom which helped. Individual hot cocoas in the keurig machine too. We...

Very nice accommodations! Comfortable beds and pillows in nice size rooms. Lobby was very conducive to groups of family sitting around talking and enjoying our family time on the night before our daughter's wedding. We did have a couple of problems. We had booked at least 10 rooms for our wedding party months in advance. We were told by the...

This was our 2nd time at the hotel, keep in mind the 1st was great. This time our bathroom had a nasty odor, like mildew. The main reason I chose this was for the pool for my kids. When we got to the pool it was packed with locals who had rented it for a birthday party. It's a small...

We were pleasantly surprised by our Academy Hotel experience. Upon check in, we were given an upgrade to a jacuzzi suite. The room was very comfortable and enormous as well. We had a long drive so we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant which worked out well. They have a nice pool and lobby area.

Where do I begin! It's called The Academy presumably as it's next door to the USAF academy. Accommodation in the barracks if they have any would be cleaner, that's one thing I know is very important in the military in general and safety. You will not find either of these at The Academy. I wish the commanding officer of the...
