Another great breakfast for Hampton Inn, but that's about it. The room could be cleaner and there was horrible lighting in the bathroom. Also, no safe in the room. Security seemed to be an issue from all the signs posted in the parking lot ($14/night), and upon return to the hotel around 7:00 p.m., there were no more spaces. The... More

I arrived after 10 pm on 7/22/14, with a reservation for a non-smoking room. The desk clerk was pleasant and professional. When I opened the door to my room, it was brutally obvious that they had given me a smoking room. I immediately called down to the front desk, but the phone just rang repeatedly. With an early morning ahead... More

We visited last year when my daughter was looking at colleges. We came back this year to register her for classes. The hotel staff is fantastic. Shanna, who never seems to sleep(she was there morning, noon, and night!) is a star. The customer service at this Hampton is the best. The drivers, managers, hosekeeping -all went out of their way.... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Hampton Inn University Center. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfast was great and the shuttle was so convenient for getting around town. Rick and Tracey the shuttle drivers couldn't have been nicer and patient in getting us to our drop offs and picking up was just a phone call away. Would surely... More

My son and I came to Pittsburgh for a Pirates/Dodgers game and stayed just one night. The room was clean, the staff, at the front desk, very considerate and while the parking is not plentiful, it was free. We enjoyed the cookies at check-in and then the nice continental breakfast this morning. As I said the room was clean and... More

My husband and I arrived at this hotel and were told that our reservation was for a smoking room. I politely informed the lady at the front desk that this was a mistake and she acted as if it was my fault! On top of that, the hotel was sold out that night and we were unable to switch rooms....

Stayed here one night on a college tour for my son. This hotel is on the small side, but is convenient to University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, Carlow and any other spot in the Oakland area.

We found out on a Friday that my wife would be having surgery the following Tuesday at UPMC Presby. After checking with a few other hotels, I came across the Hampton Inn.

If you have something to do in Oakland or even downtown, this hotel is clean and convenient. The walk to University of Pittsburgh may be longer than you expect. Be prepared to pay for parking, nearby street parking is not practical.
