“Not bad...but a little dissapointed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

We have stayed here a few times and its nice. However, this is the second time the hot tub is broken and the pool was really stinky and dirty. I appreciate the breakfast and the 10.00 vouchers. :) the orange juice is really bad though. :/ we heard a few people commenting on it. I think if u really took better care of your pool and hot tub it would improve your overall rating and accomadations.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for staying with us and I appreciate you taking the time to communicate your valuable comments. We certainly strive to exceed each and every guest’s expectations on every stay and it looks like we came up a little short on your last visit. I feel bad that the hot tub was not available during your last stay. Unfortunately the heater failed and it is a part that must be ordered from the Factory and is not available locally. We were offering a nice alternative with free day passes to the nearby Bally’s that has an indoor pool and hot tub. I am hoping my Staff offered that to you or that you noticed the sign with the offer. I have also looked in to the pool issue mentioned and checked the maintenance pool chemical log. My maintenance staff checks the chemical levels of the pool 3 times per day and did not see any issues. I will follow up with my Staff to see if there were any other similar comments. Again, thank you for choosing The Academy Hotel and for your valued feedback which helps us continually get better and better. My Staff and I are hoping to see you again soon.
Sincerely,
John Wilkins

By far, the best value in town! The affordable room prices are just the icing on the cake. I travel to Colorado Springs often and always stay here. I'm impressed that year after year, I see the same smiling faces greet me by name at the front desk and restaurant. You can't beat the breakfast buffet and happy hour specials, not to mention the free fresh baked cookies every evening at the front desk. The rooms are spacious and clean. There's an indoor pool, a gym, a hot tub and my favorite... a huge indoor fire place. For me though, the excellent customer service and genuine care and kindness of each staff member, truly make it a home away from home when I'm in town. Make sure you sign up for the VIP membership specials through email on their website.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Tower are newer and larger

Breakfast buffet was 5 stars!!
We loved the indoor pool. Rooms very clean. Will stay again! Included in room price was breakfast buffet with omelet chef and dinner coupon. Loved it and look forward to another trip. Front desk staff went out of their way to arrange close rooms for our stay here.

My family and I would definitely return to this hotel. We liked the lobby and the pool. The buffet was good and so were the items we ordered from the bar and grill for dinner. They have great happy hour specials. The air conditioning worked great. The only constructive comments we have are that our room (145) had some mold around the edge of the bathtub and the ceiling and the clock radio was a little dated. But, for the most part, this hotel was a winner in our book. We found it interesting that the pool is located in the hotel lobby, but it didn't stop us from having fun. Also, for those with families, this hotel's pool is a little deeper than the ones that you usually see at hotels.

Room Tip: We like the rooms that face the mountains rather than the highway. Parking can be an issue for some...

Caleb at the font desk was friendly, helpful, and had great information about the area. He was even able to get us into our room an hour ahead of check-in so that our baby could nap. The pool area is great! Everything was clean and well taken care of. The rooms are a little dated, but again clean and comfortable. The service at the restaurant for dinner was a little slow, but the wait-staff and chef at breakfast were right on top of everything. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I've ever been to.

Room Tip: We chose the two room suit so that our baby could sleep in a room by himself. While a little pricy...

The hot breakfast vouchers & dinner vouchers along with the already lower nightly rate made this a very economical hotel without sacrificing amenities! Easy access to restaurants, & attractions. my boys loved playing the Wii

We checked in with Caleb at the front desk. He was went the extra mile for us and got us our room early. Check in was smooth and he got us the coupon vouchers for food. We were traveling from arizona and had a vehicle breakdown and he was patient with us. Thank you Caleb.
During our stay the Alan at the bar was great with information about the hotel and gave us the ins and outs of staying there. Kristen and Colin the mother and son team took great care of us and our granddaughter Aniya. All the wait staff and cooks were great our whole stay. The Pizza, French Dips, appetizers and the Prime Rib were outstanding. The daily breakfast buffet was the best. This hotel knows what customer service means. They all go above and beyond. We will always stay at this hotel when we come home. We are from the springs and are shocked we didn't know what a gem this hotel is. Thank you everyone and we will see you soon! The Waggoner Family Ps The lady assigned to clean our room remembered our names and was happy to make sure our room needs were met.
