Great staff,location and breakfast. The room was very nice and clean. The location was in the heart of the city. They have breakfast included which is a plus.I recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a nice place to get away!

We took a chance at a non chain hotel based on trip advisor rating. We were pleased with the room, the heated indoor pool and the wonderful breakfast. The hotel is dated and we were not impressed with the front desk staff. We would say that it was a good value for the money.

This hotel is very cozy. It does need some renovations, which I heard they will be updating eventually. We loved sitting by the fire (in the comfortable chairs) in the lobby. They give you a phinominal breakfast; which is priced at 14.99 per adult.. which seems like a lot but it is totally worth it. Best breakfast in town. The...

My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend for an early Valentine's Day weekend. First of all, we were unable to book the "Jacuzzi Suite" because we are under 25 and apparently we're going to ruin the room and party because we're 23 having a couples weekend..... Second of all, we were recommended the "Pikes Peak View" instead. They...

Old hotel. Has the restaurant with the "Prime Rib" and the pool inside. Carpet in rooms need replaced badly. Wallpaper peeling off in the restroom. It is furnished with old chairs, tables, lights, etc. It is in need of a remodel to crack the 3 star range.

The Academy Hotel is a good property with a good location. We live in Pueblo West, but when we attend a function in the evening in Colorado Springs we usually stay here. The staff are extremely courteous, the bar is good, and they have an excellent breakfast buffet. We will stay here again soon.

The front desk is in the common area surrounded with indoor plants and trees. The indoor pool is open to the restaurant and common area. Breakfast was AMAZING! Omelets made to...

You get what you pay for. The staff is super friendly but the cleaning of the room leaves something to be desired. Didn't vacuum, clean table tops or bathroom floor. And the bathroom walls around the sink area clearly do not get cleaned. And it LOOKS like they made it but the fitted sheet wasn't touched as it was coming...

Our room wasn't ready for us at the 4pm check in. We had to wait 45 minutes for it to be cleaned. The lobby was packed and there was trash all around the lounge area. When we did finally get into our room we had to call maintenance to fix the blinds because they would not close. We also had...

We found this hotel by googling "pet friendly hotels in CO Springs". What a find! The desk staff were very kind and professional, the room was clean with no residual pet smells and the free breakfast was delicious! The lobby area was a little loud due to the proximity to the pool, but it was not a problem!! This is...
