The hotel was host to the acoustic music retreat. The staff were did everything possible to make sure the guests had a pleasant stay. The hotel was in the process of renovations and managed to keep the construction sites clear so guest could move about with no problems. The complimentary breakfast was rather uninspiring, but probably would have been better... More

We stayed for two nights while visiting our daughter at Sam. This place is nothing fancy, but better than I anticipated. It's quiet and the beds are comfortable. Most importantly, it's clean. The maid service was skimpy, but for two nights it was fine. We will definitely stay again.

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

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...
