I was expecting a lot more of this hotel based on the reviews. It's a very old building and rooms were outdated. Just the type of rooms where you don't feel comfortable taking your socks off. Staff was friendly. Water in the bathroom (sink and tub) was brown upon first turning it on. We ate at the restaurant for dinner....

Nice above average hotel. Several breakfast choices but, nothing real special except custom made omelettes. We enjoyed the pool, exercise room, Wii staton and visiting in the large open atrium lobby with kids. Like that they offer military and senior discount.

The rooms are great. I enjoyed being able to have a beer and snacks while our kids played in the indoor pool. After they finished swimming, they would come over for dinner and we would all eat. The fireplace was a great place to warm up and hang out. The breakfast was amazing. If you don't like eggs, you can...

Overall experience was FABULOUS, that is why we return over and over again. The staff bends over backward to make sure the stay is top notch. Everything was clean, tidy and organized. We fully enjoy the gourmet breakfast and the family friendly atmosphere.

Nice staff. Atrium area is very comfortable and beautiful. Mattress comfortable but the beds move a lot. Bathroom is so small with a pretty sink that take up the whole counter, very little space to set anything down. The walls transfer loads of sound. The pool is saltwater, and burnt our skin...think bright red, itchy, painful. The housekeeping staff didn't...

As a military family most every business in the area is vet accommodating to military not here. I thought since we found a bed bug in our bed they would be worried about making sure we were comfortable somewhere else. The owner was notified (since it is family owned) and never called us. The female front desk manager was unwilling...

Normally the experience at The Academy Hotel is amazing. This time not so much. The water main broke on Saturday and they didn't bother telling anyone until Sunday when the toilets wouldn't flush and the water was yellow. We had no help with finding another hotel and all the staff would do was apologize and not give out any kind...

Excellent accommodations! The hotel is a little older but, is very well kept. Only wish they had an elevator in the "A" wing. Staff is very good, very attentive. This was our second stay and we truly enjoyed our stay and will come back.

the academy is such a gem. the lobby, with the sunken sitting space around a fireplace, to the indoor swimming pool and raised dining room/sports bar........lighted trees and open ceilings.....feels like a much more expensive place. i can go here and have everything i need in one place if i just want to retreat and refresh. or i can walk...
