    The Hotel is great. Good food and the room was very nice. Breakfast was better than most cafes with a full selection of entrees.

    The bartender had a personality of a stone

    When I drove up to the hotel I thought it looked like a dormitory till I got inside! It is a beautiful hotel Inside and the staff are geared to customer service the bed is comfortable but wait for it. .... Breakfast is on par with the Hilton. Well maybe a little better since it is included in the very reasonable price for the room. Whenever I go the Colorado Springs again I will not hesitate to book the Academy

    There is nothing not to like about this gem

    Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic.

    Food in the restaurant should be better. Room amenities like coffee and Kleenex should be available at front desk or brought right to the room upon request. We were out of both and unable to get any for our entire stay because we had our dog in the room and couldn't have housekeeping.

  • 6.6

    The beds were comfortable and the blackout shades helped us sleep in. All of the staff were very friendly. The ice cold lemon and orange water was a nice touch.

    Rooms & overall hotel could have been cleaner. The shampoo, conditioner & gel were watered down. The toilet was loose. No elevator so we had to lug our luggage up and down stairs. It would have been nice to have had free coffee and hot tea in lobby as other hotels do.

  • 9.2

    the beds were very comfortable, the bathroom could of had a little bigger space, the breakfast was awesome, very fresh, sliced fresh fruit would have been nice

    I think I lost my son's stuffed toy and might have been left on the bed, I have called 3 times and left 2 voicemails to housekeeping and have not gotten a response back. I was told there was a lost and found area. no call back as of yet. For dinner, there was no more prime rib by 7pm when dinner started from 5pm to 10 pm. Something I was really looking forward to eating.

  • 7.8

    Overall a great hotel. Breakfast was amazing and varied.

    Most of the ice machines were not working. Also air conditioning in the room needs to be fixed

  • 9.2

    We loved the breakfasts. My made to order omelet was delicious. The beds were clean and very comfortable. The hotel is in close proximity to Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Cliff Dwellings, Pike's Peak. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The large lounge in the lobby with central fire place was very nice. Very pleasant stay overall and pleased with our choice.

    The appearance of the pool water was murky so we chose not to go in. One of the safety latches on the door did not lock as it had been reset and didn't line up. The other safety latch did work. The refrigerator was not cool but we didn't intend to use it anyway, so didn't report to the hotel staff.

    The pool, the rooms, the grounds, the breakfast

  • 9.2

    Location and most of the Hotel. All of the staff was wonderful! Noticed motel security was on it if car alarm went off.

    Their arcade is a ping pong table and foosball table. Jacuzzi had out of order sign for 3 days but looked to be running fine. Not sure why.

  • 3.2

    'Upgraded' to a room in the 'tower'... View was a 'brick wall' and the paint in the bathroom was actually peeling off the wall... Upon checking the atrium had plastic buckets in the middle of the floor collecting water from the roof and 'yellow tape' was blocking a seating area due to 'cleaning'... All in all, a very 'tired' property... For over $150 a night, very, very disappointing...

  • 9.6

    Clean. Friendly staff. Very accommodating to families. Energetic ,bustling atmosphere. Comfortable rooms. Great breakfast.

    Lighting a bit dark. Decor a bit outdated,otherwise amenities were great! Could use some landscaping in court yard off of pool, but that's just me.

  • 6.2

    The breakfast was great and so was the staff on duty at breakfast time.

    The hotel could use some updating. Our bathroom ceiling started leaking all over the floor. But they moved us right away so that was nice. But the hotel overall just needs some updating comparable to other hotels.

  • 8.2

    The variety of food and flavor for breakfast was great.

    Breakfast buffet was suppose to run until 10am but they ran out of plates by 0940 and never added more for all three days I was there...also the staff would start shutting down before 10am as well.
