Family vacation to Colorado Springs. Blood on the comforter which was changed once reported. Room bathroom smelled like urine. The smell was reported multiple times but never addressed. Needless to say we checked out early. I would not recommend this hotel!

So, visiting the Springs to see family and The Academy hotel was recommend. Issue number one occurred when I received a rate quote over the phone that suddenly jumped $20 when I got to the counter. It was rectified but still.....moving on. A big selling point is that they have an indoor pool. It is a floating cess pool. I...

Very pleasantly surprised by breakfast (similar to Embassy Suites). Room is average. Very tight with rollaway bed for a 5th person in the room. Our building didn't have an elevator. Front desk service was ok. Had to ask twice for the rollaway. The guy bringing the bed was great.

No fussy lobby here! This lobby is where the action is at. There is The Pit that has a fireplace surrounded by cushiony chairs. The best free breakfast ever is set up in the lobby. Patrick the Omelette Man was amazing. He had 5 omelettes cooking but still have time to show you where the butter was.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great experience. The room was very comfortable and clean. I loved the room darkening shade since I don't like light shining in when I am trying to sleep. The breakfast was the best on our two week trip. They have made to order omelets, waffles, eggs, sausage, ham, muffins, and more....

Don't let the exterior fool you; this is a great choice for a family vacation in Colorado Springs. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and courteous during our stay, and our room was clean and well appointed. With a fridge, coffee maker and microwave, it had everything we needed for our two night stay. The kids...

I don't know if this would be the hotel that I would select if I were looking for a very quiet environment. However, I was traveling with my husband, and 3 kids, and this is the perfect spot. The breakfast alone is fantastic, but my kids had a great time at the pool, my husband took a long nap in...

My Hotel stay was an outstanding and enjoyable stay, especially due to the Outstanding View I received when I opened my window to a fantastic view of Pike's Peak.

The hotel location is close to the Air Force academy, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak and many more attractions. This made for a perfect one day trip.
