Simply horrible. Bed bugs - got everything infected, huge traveling rash of bugs in my hair and all over my body. Left scars. Management disputed. Go north up the street about two blocks and there's another bargain motel, cheaper, cleaner and safer.

Graduation weekend.... the only place less than $300/night (And the $150 was a complete ripoff!) Arrived at midnite AFTER Ceremonies, keys received, and when we entered the room there was someone already IN THE BED watching TV! They couldn't figure out who was in what room at the front desk and they gave us the keys to someone else's room!... More

Room was in desperate need of overhaul. Furniture is dirty and falling apart. No wi-fi as advertised. Requested refund. Manager disapproved after front desk clerk said it would not not be a problem because i did not stay the night in the room. Reported to the BBB in the area. Still under investigation. Do not waste your time. Days Inn... More

Seeing my daughter at FSU was the highlight of my trip. The low point was that I needed to return back to my prepaid room at this property. Since it was parents weekend at the school, there were no other feasible accomodations available elsewhere. The marquee outside proudly states that the hotel is "Under new management" but I found so... More

Last minute football weekend trips sometimes include desperation moves. In desperation, we drove up despite reviews. The sign outside said Vacancy and Welcome. The outside was pretty run down and deserted looking. Very few cars. The lobby was not horrible so I asked the lady if we could view a room. She said yes, but we'd have to come back... More

The location is awesome....like a mile from fsu. The hotel wasn't a mariott, but it was decent for the price. They even had little cereals and snack bars in the morning. It looks like they were re-doing a lot of stuff because my room had a lot of new stuff. Everyone was super nice. I was sold. It's a fantastic... More

Not worth it. Dirty stained carpet. Looked un-vacuumed.

I apologize for your unpleasant experience at the Collegiate Village Inn. As you may have noticed, the hotel has undergone quite a few changes this year. Now under new management, the hotel is gradually being restored to its former glory. As of this week, we have installed brand new carpeting. The previous carpet was worn, as you mentioned. I invite... More

The night guy was very nice and accommodating. We're first checked into a room that looks as if it was on maintenance. As soon as we opened the room door it was like a heatwave came through. The carpet was dirty and muddy. Paint chips were all over the floor. I have two small children so that's unacceptable. We changed... More

My 2 friends and I were on a budget and looking for a cheap hotel within walking distance to the campus and the bars. We booked 2 weeks in advance and gave my credit card over the phone. Several days later I called back to get confirmation, but their phones were disconnected for the entire week leading up to our... More

I apologize for your previous stay at the Collegiate Village Inn. As of March 1st, 2011 the hotel is under new management and is being COMPLETELY renovated. Previous management was unacceptable, to say the least. The new Collegiate Village Inn, now CVI Hotel, plans on providing their guests with exemplary customer service and in completely brand new renovated rooms. I... More

The hotel has a very nice lobby with wireless internet...and that's where the "nice" ends. We called over 2 weeks in advance and booked a room telling them clearly what we wanted (coffee maker, fridge, microwave, 2 beds, non-smoking). I was a new student at FSU so my parents and I thought we'd stay here for a few days while... More
