    Amazing staff!

    This hotel and their staff is amazing. Customer service as it use to be. Personable, value, cleanliness and safety. I stayed in several hotels for 45 days with my pets during corona. So many hotels eliminated their amenities and charged more embedded with large homeless communities.

    The Academy exuded the quality of Disney World. They worked out a safe sensible plan to still offer their amenities. The staff makes you feel like friends . I will also note as a past business owner myself, this hotel is managed well financially and socially and the benefits are transferred to the customers. Love these people. John Wilkins should be proud of his staff. There may be homeless individual that pop up in the parking lot at night but compared to Denver or Westminster it’s really nothing to be concerned with. The police station is a block away. Just be smart.... you’re in a city. I never felt unsafe here and stayed two weeks.

    Great location.

    Location was perfect. Price was great. Overall the hotel has a great set up. Our room was not clean however which made it disappointing. Very little grass options also and due to COVID you could only use the main entrance. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic. Would stay here again but would hope for a cleaner facility.

    Nice Stay

    Spent two nights here and was very pleased with our choice of hotel. The rooms, while not luxurious, are perfectly adequate, clean with everything you need. Ate in the main restaurant one night and was impressed with the quality of food and the menu options were great, they also have a full bar. their breakfast was busy but well managed with an organized system to get a table in no time. They have an omelet bar which was awesome! the staff was very attentive and friendly. The only downside is that the hotel is on a busy street with little sidewalk space so walking your fur babies is limited to the parking space of the property and its surrounding businesses. I was traveling with my two dogs and the pet fee is $10+tax per night for both dogs.

    Great price and Very nice and clean

    This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The price was so reasonable that I thought I was booking a regular hotel. This hotel was much nicer than I thought it would be for the cost. It was Very dog friendly, had great staff, incredibly clean. I was impressed and would definitely book again. Sometimes if the pet friendly rooms are booked the manager can work something out. Great place!!

    great place

    Found this with the app. It is really a great find. Very friendly. Nice room and definitely has more of a resort feel. Very large pool and cozy public seating spaces. Very good breakfast buffet included with an omelet bar. 10$ off coupons for restaurant eating. Nice to have a bar in the hotel. Convenient to many sites.
