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 The hotel is very clean however quite outdated.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

I would like to say that when you are in Purdue you don't have much options to live in other than Union Club. This is nice hotel and location is very convenient. The only remark I would like to give is that Staff is not at all cooperative. They treat you in a way that we are their servants. Imagine... More

I visited Purdue for two nights. The hotel is OK, nothing special, some aura from being associated to the Union Club, and a restaurant that I never visited. VERY long winding corridor to the elevators. The first night was OK, bed a tad short, shower splashing out. The second morning I was awoken by the persistent beep of a vehicle... More

I've been coming here for 4 years. I love the place. The doors are beautiful solid wood, the windows are soundproof with floor to ceiling curtains, and the staff is consistently polite and accommodating We have stayed at other hotels in both Lafayette's, but when I found the Union club, I found my hotel home. The price for their cheapest... More

Staff - front desk staff was fine, very amenable to helping us get receipts the way we needed them for reimbursement. housekeeping was great, they always greeted us in the hall. Friendly and welcoming! Cons: Small rooms. Twin plus a full bed.... More

Pros: rooms are nice albeit not spacious (euro style). Environment is quiet. Location is great if you are visiting a Purdue student. So why the poor rating? Con: internet service may be free but could not connect unless I went to the lobby and then the connection was slow (2G feel). So much the reputation of Purdue for being a... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night while on a road trip. Good value for money and the staff at the reception desk couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Room was a bit small but fitted in with the age of the building and everything was clean and comfortable. Nice to stay on campus as an outsider - lovely... More

My fiance and I came down for a concert and a nice vacation. Upon arriving we found a dirty earring and several hair ties in the bedside table. I was disgusted that no one had cleaned this before. Then in the morning I was searching for my ring that had fallen off the bedside table and much to my surprise... More
