Clean building and rooms. Staff helpful and friendly.

The property is in the middle of the University and is surrounded by students. It’s a great area!

Great location, friendly staff, comfortable rooms.

I love this hotel. I’ve been here three times in the last year .... always clean, COMFORTABLE And very quiet. Convenient access to the light rail. Darling decorations. I will return!

Room is small for the price. No microwave. Parking is expensive. Staff is rude and never smile to guests.

Super comfortable bed. Walking distance to places for coffee.

The room was well appointed, well decorated and very clean

So clean! The staff was great, the location great.

We love the proximity to everything when visiting our daughter at the University. also its decorative charm and student interaction in lobby as well as access to two restaurants and Starbucks. We have been assigned a "corner/end of hallway" room before and this time a bug was on my bed upon arrival. It felt damp in the room as well. The beds are short in length(got the two double bed room) so if you're tall your feet would be hanging off the end of those beds. I've said before we wish the hotel bar stayed open on wknds and I wish they had an "insundry" offering for basic needs not fancy stationary although the CVS is close by. Hotel staff is very friendly and if no events going on simulateously, parking is easy and reasonable for the city and can get good rates if plan ahead.

great location if have business on campus. restaurant serves mainly sandwiches and is very good.

Interesting retro decor. My TV did not work and when I turned on the power strip to which it was plugged in, I found that the refrigerator was leaking.

Right by the light rail and has few shops/restaurants within walking distance. Would like to have a local map or information booth of attractions/restaurants available for the area

The room was actually great, we got the WKRP in Cincinnati room. What brought the rating down was all the college kids hogging up the lobby using the free WIFI. Maybe the hotel should consider having a rotating wifi password for paying customers as opposed to free for everyone coming in off the street? When I say hogging they were in EVERY single seat available.

Great location and fun decor and feel to the place. Enjoyed everything about it except when we went to use the pull out couch there were something that looked like little wood shavings or chips in the sheets. Obviously they did not change the sofa sleeper bedding. Gross. I called the front desk to tell them. They said they would change the bedding. I asked that this happen asap since it was late. She said she would try and apologized. Someone came in less than ten minutes which was good in my opinion, but they just dropped off the new sheets on top of the the dirty bedding and left. I thought the least they could do was strip the bedding and take it with them. So, instead I stripped the bedding found a place for the dirty sheets in our room and made the up the new bedding myself. Not really what I want to do when I'm paying to stay there. It really left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I conclude from this is that they don't spend a lot of time in properly training their staff on customer service and to do their jobs the way they should be done. Sad because my son will be going to school here and it would be a perfect place for us to stay each time we visit him but I will now find a new hotel to stay over the next 4-5 years when I visit.

The toilet seat had urine stains which could not have gone unnoticed by the cleaning staff. It was quite disgusting to arrive to a room like this.
