“Good for extended families to stay. ”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

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.

Stayed May 2014

Friendly staff, free roll-away bed, heated indoor pool and outdoor hot tub, great restaurant, free wifi internet, recessed "living room" area in lobby with fire place, small gym. Room is sufficient and clean, with a big cable t.v. with many channels, small refrigerator, basic restroom with tub shower, nice desk, and big king bed. Very convenient location to visiting US Air Force Academy via South gate. Free cookies at check-in desk in the evening, and free fruit-infused water all day. Only $120/night, which comes with free breakfast buffet coupons and $10 off at restaurant coupon..

Some money needs to be put into the infrastructure in the future, but for the price, it is clean and convenient. Roof leaked during a rain storm in atrium roof over lobby/restaurant; carpets are somewhat worn. Certainly not a 5-star atmosphere, but very down to earth and cost efficient.

Room Tip: Different wings do not connect. Request rooms near each other or in the same wing. Some wings face...

Green Features: Hang towels if you are willing to reuse them without washing. Free, delicious fruit-infused water in the lobby 24-hours per day (no need to buy bottles).

Nice motel but we had problems with service. Two light bulbs out in bathroom, shower head fell off numerous times. The room was not ready on time and then the sheets were not clean and when we reported the sheets that evening had to go twice and it still took 40 minutes for them to come. Maids took our breakfast vouchers and coupons for our I house bar and grill. Day staff was rude and a bit short with us. The night staff however were very pleasant and helpful. Great location of motel. Good beds and air conditioning.

The price was very reasonable, there were free passes for both individuals in the room for the breakfast, which was outstanding (made to order omelets, three different breakfast meats, waffles with toppings, cereals, fruit, pastries, juices, coffee, biscuits and gravy...I would rate this at a $12 value per person). We also received $10 vouchers (per person) for the restaurant, and the food was good...the pizza sauce was excellent.

The staff, from Karen and Darren and Colleen at the front desk to Gary at the bar, was super friendly and helpful. We rented three rooms for the AFA graduation, and we would definitely go back to The Academy Hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms were spacious and clean; being on the first floor was convenient.

We enjoyed our stay at the Academy Hotel for Air Force Academy graduation. The room was spacious and well tended by staff. The included breakfast was great (special praise to the omelette chef). We had minor problems with the key card, but they were quickly fixed by the gracious desk staff. The hotel is conveniently sited for access to the interstate to the North Gate of the Academy. There are numerous restaurants nearby. We were able to ask for adjoining rooms with our family and were immediately served.

Green Features: Toiletries are exclusively from dispensers. Optional towel replacement.

Booked directly through the hotel and got an excellent price. Actually booked 3 nights but canceled the 3rd. The amenities included free breakfast buffet and coupons off Happy Hour and appetizers. Rooms could use an update and the carpets in the common areas replacing but overall was a great value.

Room Tip: Call directly. The 3rd night was refunded with zero problems because I booked directly.

The price is Unbeatable! The hotel gives a $10.00 credit to the bar & grill that's located inside the hotel. (I think you have to book the room on their website)Plus a wonderful breakfast! The chef will whip up an omelette with all the fresh ingredients you want! The kids will love the indoor pool and arcade room. Overall it's a great deal for an excellent price, plus the staff is nice.
