Georgeous hotel!!! Awesome restaurant with an outstanding breakfast spread!!! Really family oriented. We love tht they had the video games out at night but in the morning they were out away for no distractions. Because clean rooms. A little pricey but worth it and great guest services!!!
If you are in the Springs this is the place. We have a dog and our room was wonderful, just as nice as the regular rooms. The breakfast buffet was as nice as a Sunday Brunch in a five-star hotel. The staff are polite and helpful. The location is right off the interstate and convenient to restaurants and shopping.
I was happy that my husband booked this hotel! Location is very easy to get to and the price was right. The lobby area is peaceful, with natural stone fountains, secluded seating areas and beautiful photos of Colorado. While we did not bring suits, the indoor pool looked like a lot of fun. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and a great staff make this hotel an easy one to recommend. I was suprised at the "included" breakfast...not your usual continental breakfast. Patrick at the omelette station was such a nice guy.My husband and I enjoyed ordering the omelette with just our favorites in it. Make your own waffles, french toast with strawberry or apple toppping and whipped cream was my daughters choice. My son went for the scrambled eggs, ham, bacon and potatoes. It was a great way to start off our day.
After reading the reviews for many hotels in the area, I decided on this one. I was looking for something not too expensive and with an indoor pool. Highlights included easy to find location with lots of parking, friendly staff, a beautiful lobby/lounge area, a great breakfast buffet, nice/clean room with comfy beds, a fun indoor pool, a fun ping/pong game area, and a dinner option w/out leaving the hotel (used the $10 voucher, the food and service were great). All in all, the Academy exceeded my expectations! Our family of 4 had a great time and we will definitely return!
This is not the best hotel I have stayed in but it certainly isn't the worst. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly, especially the chef at the egg station at breakfast - I didn't get his name unfortunately but it was nice to see a smiling face first thing in the morning! Our room was just around the corner from the main lobby/restaurant area and I was worried that we may be disturbed by noise but my worries were unfounded. The hotel could do with a bit of refurbishment but, all in all, an OK hotel.
