Not centrally located - but great hotel staff, and there is a very convenient shuttle. The rooms are a bit small, but generally quite clean and modern. The staff goes out of their way to get you everything you need.

My family and I had to make a last minute & quick trip to Pittsburgh last weekend. I called Hampton Inn University Center on Saturday evening to reserve a room. Despite computer issues, they held a room for us. They also provided us with early check-in on Sunday so that we could rest briefly and change clothes to attend an... More

On a recent stay my card was charged when presented to check into the room prior to the person who the reservation was under arrived. We were both charged, when only person should have been and the hotel billing was not helpful at all to correct. All of the charges were various amounts, they claimed they could not go into... More

The hotel was very clean, bright, and room was spacious. Shuttle service to my meeting was a welcome plus. However, service on weekend evenings was less efficient. The hotel might offer a second shuttle to accommodate busiest times.

Hampton Inns are always a good bet when traveling and seeking affordable lodging and clean accommodations. I enjoyed my 4 night stay at the Hampton Inn University Center. I stayed in a two-queen bed room. It was very clean, had a mini-fridge and a coffee maker, and what I really liked best was the fresh, clean bedding and nice pillows.... More

If you're visiting the area of the Medical Campus, motel is excellent location. They also provide a free shuttle. Service is great. Parking close to the motel is a bit limited, but a second lot is available. Parking is not free. The building is clean and well kept, but it is starting to show its age. Breakfast was okay -----...

Hampton Inns are our preferred hotels when my wife and I travel, and we use them often. We would rate most of them very good.

You won't find better service and more friendly staff. Plus, the hotel is so conveniently located if you are visiting the Universities. The shuttles take you where you need to go and pick you up when you call—I didn’t need to rent a car and probably won’t if I go back to Pittsburgh. Highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this property for one night on a business trip. The hotel is not too far from the University area and they have a free shuttle that leaves at the top of the hour which makes it very convenient. The open parking lot is right in front of the lobby and even though they charge $14 per day it... More
