A three day business meeting in a windowless room with fair wifi and outdated guest rooms doesn't qualify it to be the Ritz by a long shot, but it's also outdone by La Quinta Inn standards for business gatherings. The rooms are Spartan at best, offering some amenities but not the retreat one needs after eight hours in a windowless... More

I had only been to this facility for a conference, but decided to try it for a real stay for my college reunion. This little gem of a hotel is part of the historic Carpenter House which makes up the front facade. Attached is the Inn and Conference Center which has 30 rooms and is owned and operated by Rutgers.... More

Would I stay here again? yes, but....... This is not a hotel. This is a cinder block room that has a dorm like ambiance. The bathroom was old, tired, had moldy caulking and not 100% clean. The room also defies typical hotel cleaning. Open bar for clothes. There is a hair dryer and a fridge, but no coffee maker (?).... More

Thank you for your feedback. I will certainly investigate your complaint of electric plugs not working in the room. Our facility provides daily housekeeping service, which includes refreshing the guest room, replacing soiled towels as well as removing trash. We replace linens every third day. If that was not completed during your stay, I apologize. We are happy to announce... More

The inn is clean and cozy. It is located near the campus and was easy to find. The welcome bag was stocked with treats and campus information. The staff is very friendly and professional. It is a very nice place to stay.

Excellent value for the money. Staff very friendly. If you want quiet - this is the place. This location is central from every highway. The downside - is the Reservation/Billing system. Was charged three times - all was corrected.

When arriving at the hotel we had a very nice chat with the people at the front desk. We stayed for one night and were very surprised what you get for your money at the Rutgers Inn! The rooms are quite spacious and equipped with very modern interior and everything was very clean! The only thing missing was a coffee... More

Stayed here for one night because I was due at a Rutgers program on campus the next day at 8:15 am. If you have business at Rutgers, the location of the Inn can't be beat. Front desk staff Rose and a gentleman were very nice and helpful and check-in was smooth although they mistakenly charged me twice, but rectified the... More

I stayed at the Rutgers Inn over the weekend with my girlfriend. We got a room with two queen beds which I think is the only room type (apart from the accessible rooms) available at the inn. The location is perfect! It is on the Rutgers bus route with a bus stop just 2 minutes away making it well connected... More
