Great breakfast. Large open common areas with multiple home style den seating areas. We spent most of our hotel time there and in the large bar/restaurant area.
Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Service staff very friendly.
They need more bar/rest servers as service was slow but those working were at it hard all day long. Also could use a few more housekeepers. Rooms not cleaned until close to 4 PM.
I had a double queen room. Lamps/amenities dated except for the excellent large flat screen. The AC was located too close to one of the beds. It either blows directly into the side of the bed and makes room stuffy or directly on person sleeping there.
It is not a brand new hotel and the owner takes things all the way to the end of service life. But they worked hard to fix things and were very personable.
I would stay their again with a group especially if you want a place to talk/socialize with your group. We had 15 and it worked well.
Note: south gate to academy is closed to all non military. If you stay here you have to drive a few exits up 25 to enter academy at north gate.
