“Great property!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

I was just there for a few days last week. Great property! Very nice, relaxing, clean, staff was exceptionally friendly, comfortable room, and great food. Loved the free full breakfast! The atrium is simply beautiful - lots of greenery and space with soft, comfortable furniture. The lit, stone fireplace was my absolute favorite spot to sit during the evening quiet times. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Had a double queen room at the executive level. Pillows were great, bed was very comfortable. Grea...

This is really a fantastic hotel especially for the low price. The lobby area is very pretty and has a small restaurant, there's a small indoor pool and the guest service was phenomenal. The rooms themselves are very clean and lavish, beds are beyond comfortable and the view from our room was just majestic...could see the mountains clear as day! I will definitely come here again if I'm ever in the area!

I have traveled a lot for business and stayed in a lot of nice hotels. I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and had a very good experience. The morning breakfast buffet was as good as I have experienced at a higher priced hotel with the exception of a lack of fresh fruit. However, since the buffet was included in the room price, I absolutely have no complaints. If you are looking for a high end hotel in Colorado Springs, this is not it. But the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The amenities were very good. The room and hotel public areas were clean. The value for the price was excellent. Based on the price for the room and experience, I have rated this hotel as excellent.

We were pleased with the overall guest experience; fireplace in stone-set seating area. Pleasant sports-themed bar/restaurant and central pool area. Arrived in our room to find microwave, fridge, coffee maker and great room-darkening shades. Comfortable beds and great breakfast including *made to order* omelets! pancakes, eggs, fruit, along 4 buffet tables; truly a pleasant surprise for the bargain price

Room Tip: Some of our other friends had rooms other than in the executive tower and they said it wasn't as...

The Academy Hotel was a pleasure to stay in, the service from the staff and the ambience of the hotel created a feeling of being cared for and valued.
The staff were very polite and nothing was too much trouble for them, especially with the buffet breakfast, when requesting the chef prepared a meal to an exacting requirement.
I will return there again in October, with out an hesitation.

Room Tip: Try to obtain a room facing the famous Pikes Peak mountain. Opening your curtains in the morning to...

My stay at the Academy Hotel was very enjoyable and a welcome reprieve after a long day of attending several conference sessions. The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating and my check-in time was quick . I especially loved the fact that my room was ready way before the designated check in time which gave me ample time to unwind and relax before beginning my hectic schedule. Thank you so much for that. I would certainly recommend your hotel to others.

We stayed here on the way North, stayed here for 2 nights to give us time to explore the area. Great hotel, had to wait awhile during check in as both front desk staff were on the phone. The rooms are very quiet, clean and tidy. They have black out curtains which is good if you want to sleep in. The central atrium has an indoor pool and restaurant. Our family utilised both, the kids especially loved the pool. Breakfast is amongst the better ones we encountered on our 5 week trip. The guys doing the omlettes were very friendly and great with the kids! Lots of restaurants to choose from close by. Close to the highway going north but didn't hear any traffic noise. Only negative was the beds were hard, otherwise would recommend.
