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

I read other reviews, and some are correct....it isn't the Hilton, but it isn't a bad place to stay. I was there for a week for a work related school. Upon arrival, check in was smooth and quick. I was in my room within 5 minutes. The room was clean when I arrived, and was kept clean daily by the... More

As the other reviewers have said, location is the main drawpoint of this hotel. Right on the campus, across the street from the football field. I was here on business, so it worked out great for me to be able to walk right out of the hotel onto the campus. Room was fine, pretty average. Beds were only OK -... More
