As other reviewers have mentioned, this hotel is undergoing renovation that I believe will continue until sometime in the spring. When complete, this should be a very nice hotel, and I believe it will abandon the current "University" name, being listed instead as a Hilton DoubleTree property. However, until then, unless you are a very sound sleeper, I would hesitate... More

This hotel has potential. It is being renovated, so we tried to be understanding, however there are some complaints. The toilet in our bathroom had not been cleaned when we arrived. Also, there is no light above the bathroom counter. The only light is above the shower. Also, the front desk attendant was not overly friendly. She did not tell... More

Be forewarned..this hotel is going through renovations and is FAR from being ready to receive guests when it comes to the condition of the individual rooms! There are signs at the front desk encouraging you to ask for an upgrade to a "renovated" room, so, naturally, we did that. Well, room 613 is far from being ready for guests!! There... More

Hotwire didn't advertise that this hotel was being reconstructed. While I was placed on a "renovated" floor, the room itself was incomplete, missing closet doors, bathroom hardware, and bathroom lighting. Plus the heat in my room would heat and then the A/C would turn on once the room was at the target temperature..so the room was either cold or hot.... More

This is going to be one of Winston Salem's top 5 properties once renovations are done. It's a former Holiday Inn that's in the midst of converting to Hilton's Double Tree. Rooms are everything you'd expect in a Hilton product and public areas are clean and well kept. Don't let the appearance of exterior renovations deter you. This is a... More

Although the hotel is being totally remodeled it was fine for our two night stay. Restaurant and bar are not open yet. Seemed to be a lack of staff but overall we could put up with the remodeling. This hotel will be a Doubletree in the Spring of 2015. Our room had been partially remodeled, lobby are was very clean... More

Not clean but management did send someone up. They cleaned the waterer was all over out bathroom door off. It was gross. We were not offered another room but were too tired to fight for one. We had our charge taken off though in the morning because it was really not clean and they had to send up a cleaning... More

OK I have not stayed at this hotel, however it is a fall back option for my employer when we can't get into the first choice. Fortunately I was able to get into a different hotel and when I called this one to cancel my reservation they said they couldn't find one. So it all worked out. The person who... More

Found this hotel through a number of different booking sites and it appeared under a couple of different names. It's own website is still there, but directs you to a number to book. I booked through the parent website 'Magnuson Hotels'. What it doesn't say is that the bar and restaurant have closed, the pool is closed and the hotel... More
