Our family stays at the Academy Hotel every spring when we come to Colorado Springs for vacation. We love the atmosphere of warmth and friendliness. The rooms are comfortable,very clean and we had a view of Pikes Peak out our window. Love waking up to that each morning! The kids love the pool and sitting by the large cozy fireplace. And of course we all love their amazing free buffet breakfast which has just about any breakfast choice you can imagine. We also eat in their dining area which is conveniently right in the hotel. Their food is really good and very reasonably priced. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Colorado Spring area. You are going to be surprised how much you enjoyed this place and how reasonable it is.
