    We have stayed at both the Drury Inn and Best Western Academy Inn. Both are nice and located just across the freeway from the south gate.

    There is a Hampton Inn Suites and residence inn off Interquest. Easy access to both North and South gates. The Academy, Drury etc are right outside the south gate and are fine but a little older. There is also a Hilton garden suites and Homewood suites off Briargate again easy access to both gates.

    We just stayed 10 days at the Hilton Homewood Suites. They are like 1 bedroom apartments. Located at Exit 151 which is one exit up from the South Gate Entrance (Exit 150).

    It was so nice PLUS a Air Force friend told us to ask and see if we could book the military rate since we had a cadet and the hotel told us yes. Savings of about $20/night.

    I have already booked this for Parent's Weekend and canceled our other reservations. This is now our hotel of choice in the COS area.

    Over the last year, we have stayed at the Residence in South, Residence Inn North ( which is at interquest 2 miles from north entrance) and Best Western Academy. All hotels were nice and clean. The Residence inn staff really were the best--nice and attentive. They gave us the military rate during I day, which we learned later they were not supposed to (never hurts to ask) which made a $50/night difference. All inns had good breakfasts but which got somewhat old after a couple of days. While we had no problems with the Academy Inn staff, they recently were panned by a couple of posters on the AOG web site. Best of luck.

    The Embassy Suites near Woodman was pretty nice. If you can use a military discount you can get a 2 queen bed suite with a kitchenette and sleeper sofa for under $100/night.

    Embassy Suites

    Nice hotel, clean rooms, with breakfast and managers reception (i.e. open bar) in the evening is hard to beat for parents.(B+) Staff are nice and attentive, the fitness room is C+, the pool is busy with kids. The rooms are a true suite (two rooms separated by a door, not a partition or less as in other "suite" hotels.) I'd stay there again. The Academy Hotel has nice, clean rooms and decent breakfast.(B) The fitness room is a D+. Indoor pool is a C. Staff were fine (C+).
    We visited and had dinner at the Broadmoor, which is an A+ property, but very expensive. We have it in mind for graduation, which now seems like light years away.
