Because Storrs is so small, there are no other hotels within a 15 mile radius, So we have to stay at this high priced, weird, not very clean hotel. This has been my fourth time staying here, the beds are hard and there is always traffic in the hallways because students also live here! It's crazy!

Well located in Storrs Campus University, close from lot of restaurants and services. Rooms are nice and big enough and food at the restaurant is good too. Staff is friendly but the hotel is a bit costly, even if the quality is a bit higher than in other place.

The staff is friendly and the location can't be beat if you are needing to do anything on the UConn campus. My room was clean and comfortable, but all the fixtures, decor, and furniture are a bit dated.

The True Blue Tavern is one of the best things about the Hale. The bartenders are great. Attentive, friendly. They make you feel like family. Kacie always seems to remember my favorite drink and has it ready in a flash and that's important. Other bars make you wait for what seems like forever. Kacie is why I go there. I... More

Visited the blue oak tavern at the Nathan hale inn at the University of Connect. Kacie is a rock star! She was so friendly and attentive. I find that customer service had gone by the wayside but Kacie has renewed my faith that it still exists. Will definitely be visiting the tavern again

While I was not a guest of the hotel, I am local to the area and frequent the True Blue Tavern often. I've tried all of the other area venues but this one can't be beat! Whether it's before catching a game at Gampel or the watching the Sunday football games, the food, drink and atmosphere is second to none.... More

Kacie made me an excellent dirty vodka martini. The fish tacos rocked too. It's a nice place, feels like a sports bar though the food is restaurant-like in its quality. I highly recommend it for a casual drink, a quick snack, or a full-on meal. Ask for the food specials before you order, they can be awesome.

We have a son at Uconn and the convenience of being right on campus is great especially after a 4 hour drive. I will admit it's pricey for an average feeling hotel and I had hoped that breakfast would be included. Although it wasn't included, I was given 20% off to the Blue Oak by a very nice young lady...

Nice albeit date dooms. Still quite comfortable and the restaurant is quite good. It is being turned into a dorm soon, but while there it is the only place in town and on the UCONN campus. Has its own pool.
