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

If you have reason to be on the campus of Sam Houston State University for a couple of days, the University Hotel is a convenient and reasonable place to stay. The hotel, which is part of the George J. Beto Criminal Justice Center, is with in walking distance to almost everything on campus. The rooms are large, clean, and have... More

I first heard about the Hotel when I was visting my son for a football game. Kind of skeptical about it, I took a chance and realized I made a great decision. It's right on campus so I didn't have to travel far to reach my son. The student at the front desk was very friendly. My room was very... More

Stayed here two nights for a local ultramarathon race. The rate I received was stellar b/c school was not in session at that time. The check-in/out was painless. Hotel reception was warm and friendly (student, I think). The included breakfast was fine for what I needed (banana, oatmeal, bagels, etc. - perfect ultra food). They allowed me to have late... More

We took a chance on this hotel because it is directly on campus. It is connected by a bridge to the Criminal Justice building and about 3 blocks from my son's residence hall. We were pleasantly suprised as the rooms were clean, tidy and looked to have been recently renovated. Rates were comparable to the chains out on the interstate.... More
