Each year i represent a university at the Big Ten Grad Expo. I always stay at the Union Club. While the rooms are rather small, they are so convenient to all that I do on campus. You can also go elsewhere in the building to grab food at one of the eateries in the Purdue Memorial Union.

Union club hotel has fantastic location for anyone visiting Purdue University as it is in the heart of the campus. It provides all basic amenities. We were offered a very small room in spite of our long stay for 2 weeks. It was only on the very last day that I was offered another room which was far more spacious... More

The Purdue Union Club Hotel is an iconic building of the University, is optimally located, and has ample parking right across the street. The rooms are modest but complete and quite comfortable, and also reasonably priced. There is a wide variety of fast food restaurants available for breakfast and lunch; the one knock is no food service at all for... More

Stayed here for 6 nights. I chose this hotel for the very strategic location. My central focus of activities was at Purdue University. Exactly as I expected so I was happy. The room is pretty basic, exactly as I expected out of a university hotel. So I wasn't disappointed. Carpet felt and smelt dusty but it was bearable. Shower though... More

Stayed for more than 2 weeks at the hotel. Perfect location and in close proximity to purdue university, dining places, shops and services. Rooms are small and dated with basic amenities . House keeping standards are average and inconsistent due to shortage of manpower and students doing part time house keeping. Coaches from airport drop you at the door step... More

Came back to Purdue 34 years after grad. school. This place is located just across the street from the Krannert Graduate School of Management. So it could not have been better being a 1983 alum. The place is a bit dated but we had a great spacious room with two queen side beds. Very clean with good beds. Good shower... More

The Union Club hotel is the most convenient place to stay in if you are visiting Purdue University. Even though it is quite big for a university town, apparently it gets quite full and you need to book in advance. The rooms are very comfortable with a coffee maker (no tea!). There is no restaurant at the hotel but the... More

This is on campus, of course its dated, but is part of the culture of the campus. Excellent place to stay if you need to be on campus. Very quiet, very convenient. Right in the middle of everything that you need to get to on campus. Close to some great spots to eat and drink.

When visiting family or in town for some alumni event this is always a great place to stay primarily for location. The hotel is very clean however quite outdated. Rooms have a very cramped european feel and not much room to move around with two people in a room that small
