Since the early 80s I have been a regular customer of this hotel having taken classes and attended conferences at Sam Houston State University. It has come a long way since my first visit. Most recently, the staff has renovated the hotel. Without compromising the historic aspect of the hotel, it provides very comfortable accommodations at a more than reasonable... More

Location is all I can say about this hotel. Since it is on the campus it is very convenient so you can be close to your child while visiting. The students working were also very nice and helpful. But I cant say much else about this hotel, as it needs LOTS of updates. The stairways smell like dirty socks, and... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the hotel in the past two weeks; in the past we have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions,... More

Stayed (1) night in a room with two double beds. The Pro's. The room was clean as was the bath room. The beds were comfortable. The wifi was fast. Before I list the Con's, I choose this property due to the limited offerings in the area and the location and the reviews. The Con's, the lobby is simple, un appealing... More

Another stay at this hotel proved that our first visit was not a fluke. Staff was friendly and efficient, accommodations were quite good, and complimentary breakfast was a positive. Of course the hotel hasn't moved, so the great location is convenient to downtown Huntsville and the campus of Sam Houston State University. It will be my first choice on my... More

Located on the campus of Sam Houston State University, the hotel is convenient to most areas of the campus, including the football stadium. It is near downtown Huntsville, the Sam Houston Museum, and restaurants. Our room was large enough, clean, and was furnished with a refrigerator and a microwave. Breakfast was included, and was not the muffins and fruit I... More

Our son will be attending SHSU in the Fall and we needed a place to stay during new student orientation. The hotel is on campus so it is super convenient. Received a 10% discount because we were there for orientation. Really reasonable. The hotel is very clean,beds are really comfortable and the staff (SHSU students) friendly. I am confident that...

We went back last year for a family weekend on Labor Day and to take in a SHSU football game. The hotel is located right on the campus and was very close to the stadium so we walked. It consists of older dorm rooms that have been updated with more modern bathrooms. They provide a free breakfast buffet and also... More

Took my daughter apt hunting and stayed here for 40 bucks less then Holiday Inn. Check in easy and all there ready to help as they are local students. Room was clean and beds were very comfy. So much didn't wake up early enough for the free breakfast. 9:30 folks or miss it. Do not hesitate to stay.

The University Hotel, on the campus of Sam Houston State University, offers the most convenient accommodations for your visit to the campus. The on-campus location puts most campus destinations within walking distance. Reserved parking, and being located across from the football stadium, is a bonus on crowded football game weekends. For the past four years, we have enjoyed staying at... More
