Its ok, another hotel that can use a modest update. Staff was friendly, hallways were hot causing the ac to run continuely. People down the hall smoking weed and nothing was done about it. Unlikely that ill stay there again, but you get what you pay for.

The front desk was friendly and professional. The room was clean, large, and quiet, with a very comfortable bed.. (Ours had one king-size bed as well as a nice sitting... More

She said it wasn't the best but it was clean to her knowledge. Also, it was just close to the campus. On game weekend $89 for a... More

We stayed for the weekend for game day and flew in to visit our daughter. Unfortunately we were unable to stay at our usual spot due to late arrangements.
