“Very Good Local Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The Campus Inn is a good value at a great location near Purdue. Being able to walk to campus and local restaurants is huge. The rooms are clean and well maintained. After years of staying here I can say that management has always been responsive and willing to work with my schedule changes, The value and location keep us coming back!

I have been using this hotel for over 5 years on a regular basis. My room is basic, but always clean. The staff is consistant and courteous. The gentlemen that manages this property is very accomodating and has helped me out with on campus lodging on may occassions. You cannot beat the loacation The only better location is The Union, but requires planning one year in advance and is much more expensive.

Location, Location, Location.....

Room Tip: Get to know the manager, he will take care of you.

I just checked out of this hotel. I had been staying there for the past two weeks and noticed that I was repeatedly getting bites on my back and shoulders. I decided to check the bed for bugs, found some, and reported it to the manager. He denied that the bugs I found in the bed were bud bugs and said that they were just "beetles". Why the hell are there bugs in my bed anyway! His denial makes me believe that he has no intention of trying to rid the room of bud bugs. Multiple doses of benadryl and my skin is still itching like crazy! Stay clear of this hotel or at least room 215.

Purdue deserves better. Visiting parents of new entering freshman -- do NOT stay at this hotel. The city of West Lafayette should step in and condemn this property.

I cannot say enough bad things about this place. Dirty, unsanitary, not worth $100/night. Not worth $50/night. Outrageously over priced. Management is thoroughly unhelpful, rude and unacoomodating. Particularly a man named Frank. There are 15 other places on rt. 26 to stay. Do that.

Campusinn, Manager at Campus Inn, responded to this review, May 8, 2012
Mr. Jarkuss reserved the room with one queen bed for Super Bowl weekend for two nights. Upon his check-in at midnight he realized he made a mistake & reserved 1 bed instead 2 beds. Though Campus Inn was not obligated to change the room type at check-in, the front desk personal informed him that we can change his room next day morning for second night provided he stop by next morning to complete the formalities. He voluntarily chose not to stop by next morning to change his room & arrived middle of night of his second night of stay to change the room.

We did our best to to resolve his problem but he chose not to take advantage of it instead he became rude to staff and to the manager middle of night because it didn't work the way he wanted.

We are sorry Mr. Jarkuss it didn't work out the way you wanted.

We were the only people in the "inn" until around 10. Management threatened to call police on my fiance and I when a friend stopped by room. Refused to give us more pillows or towels. Sex in the rooms on both sides of us was especially vigorous and loud for a Tuesday. Didn't get a bit of sleep. The other people in the "inn" left around 4 to give themselves enough time to sneak back into bed before their wives woke up.

I have no idea how this hotel is still in business. Do yourself a favor and shell out a few extra bucks for a better hotel.

This place is quite a dive in poor shape. You would think you're back in the 60's. On the positive side, the beds were comfy and the location is perfect for Purdue activities.
