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.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask for rooms close together, the registration staff are very accomodating!

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.

Our daughter goes to college in Colorado Springs and we always book directly and stay at this hotel when we visit. Just can't beat the price, location, large swimming pool or the fabulous complimentary breakfast. We love Patrick's omelets every morning and the $10 vouchers for the restaurant & bar. The rooms are clean & spacious and have black out shades. We've stayed other places but the Academy Hotel is the best.

This hotel is not super updated, but the linens are clean, wifi is reliable, and lounge area is nice. Great complimentary breakfast and wonderful restaurant staff. We didn't do dinner in the restaurant, but instead used our $10 dinner vouchers (you get these if you book directly through the hotel) on drinks and snacks. Hotel staff were prompt, courteous, and welcoming. Bonus: we had an awesome view of the mountains from our first floor room. Only negatives were the slightly dated bathroom and television. Some of the room items were dated (like the 1980s alarm clock), but they seemed to match the rugged Colorado surroundings, and felt comfortable rather than awkward. Overall, we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Both rooms we saw were quite nice, but book directly through the hotel to get extras.

Stayed for 2 nights. Excellent 3 star hotel. Staff very friendly and accommodating. One of the best breakfast buffets we have had for this level of hotel. Rooms were large and clean. Bed was comfortable. Microwave and fridge in room clean and in good working order. We will definately stay again on our next visit.

Room Tip: If you book directly you get a $10 voucher for the restaurant bar for each night you stay.
