My family stayed here the night before we toured the Air Force Academy in October. The service was superb (with the exception of one guy), the breakfast was amazing, and the rooms were outfitted very well, including the most comfortable beds in my entire two week western excursion. The excercise room was very fleshed out, and they replaced the furniture in the lobby the night of my stay. My only con is that the computers in the business center were borderline unusable. On a side note, my family was basically paid to stay here after all of the food coupons for the restaurant. Overall this is a wonderful hotel for the price and I will definitely stay here next time I'm in Colorado Springs.

Staff very friendly and helpful. We asked for anything and it was brought to us in minutes. The breakfast buffet was exceptional. Blackout blinds worked great!

Now the mattresses were not as soft as we like and the hot tub looked a little murky and the restaurant food wasn't so good, but I had to really think to come up with these three!

We definitely left feeling impressed.

Stayed here for my 20th class reunion. The hotel itself is a typical mid-range "functional" hotel, clean, nice staff, good breakfast, wi-fi, etc. The location is not much to talk about (parking lot between freeways & shopping malls, although neither were a nuisance in the hotel itself). I wouldn't particularly go out of my way to come back, I wouldn't particularly mind to stay here again.

Room Tip: I ended getting a "romance package" (despite being on my own) that ended up getting me a g...

This was our second stay at the Academy Hotel. Rooms were clean, and included a refrigerator and microwave. All of the staff were very friendly. Our kids loved the pool and especially the game room with the ping pong, and foosball table. Happy Hour is great, and our group (many of us stayed for a gymnastics meet at the Olympic Training Center) enjoyed evenings hanging in the grill/bar eating and having a great time. Lobby is beautiful, and the breakfast buffet with omelets cooked to order was really great. Definitely a great hotel for the money. Will be back next year!

Stayed for three nights in August at the Academy Hotel. When we checked in, our initial room smelled strongly of smoke. We had no problem asking for a different room. The rooms were of average size, but they were clean. Our room had two queens, a refrigerator and a microwave. The kids loved the indoor pool and the free continental breakfast was the best. Made to order omelets, waffles--you name it, they had it. The staff were very friendly and helpful--actually gave me free clothes detergent when I went to get change for the laundry machines. I will say the laundry areas are scattered throughout the hotel...bit of a hike carrying the bags of laundry. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

This hotel has one of the nicest lobbies of any hotel I have ever stayed in! The 4 sided fireplace in the Greatroom area was perfect for sitting around after a long day of sight-seeing. The dining area/bar stayed open relatively late and April was an awesome server. The front desk staff and the breakfast staff were also wonderful - we especially loved Patrick "the omelet guy". And to top things off, we had a spectacular view of Pike's Peak from our room. We loved everything about our stay and will definitely go back!!!!!
