Very helpful and cheerful front desk personnel. They guided me to the Inn when I got lost and greeted me with a goodie bag when I arrived! Contemporary and comfortable room was clean and well stocked with extra blankets towels and toiletries. Located adjacent to a wooded site, the view was beautiful and quiet. Pleasantly surprised to hear no foot... More

We had a great experience at the Rutgers Inn & Conference Center. My husband was researching at Rutgers, and the kids and I took the train into NYC. It was an affordable hotel, and the staff offered genuine welcome and great, detailed information about local travel (car, bus, and train) and restaurants. There was also a quiet room with internet... More

Overnight stay for student orientation. Room was small with no meals offered. Facility was no frills, which was acceptable for the price. However, location was a bit out of the way for location off function. Overall it fit the parameters of this trip.

I stayed for a couple of days and the room was very comfortable (with a lovely view over a garden), and conveniently located on campus (with a short free shuttle bus into New Brunswick, or a fairly short walk).

It was a 4 night stay and I had a great time. It has the Rutgers bus stop right outside the inn so you don't have to walk much. Very inviting vibe. They even have a mini store in case you get hungry at night.

Great, unpretentious and a place for scholars. I would come back. The setting is nice, with a nice walking trail behind the rooms. I spent two afternoons working in my room and was productive. The rooms are spacious. The staff is helpful and friendly.

I stayed to be near my daughter who was participating in the Rutgers Dance Marathon. The Inn was in the middle of all the places I wanted to go. The Inn is set in a quiet environment. Rooms are clean and modern.

I found the Inn, by chance, when researching a place to stay while dropping off my son at Rutgers/Mason Gross School of the Arts. A nice basic place with frig and TV. The front desk personnel could not be nicer or more helpful. And it's a bargain by New Brunswick standards. You can hop on a Rutgers bus and travel... More

This could not have been a better location for us to have our conference given the fact it snowed us in -- the benefit of being on campus already really paid off. Great accomodating staff and modest prices make this a smart place to stay.

We stayed one night at Rutgers and chose it for the price. Way cheaper than anything around. The room was clean, the staff friendly. Late at night, the room next to us was having a loud party. We figured out their room number and phoned them to tone it down and they did.
