Overall, not a bad stay. Location is excellent w/a Sonic next door and very close to campus. Place is older & could use a fresh coat of paint, but relatively clean - bathroom was spotless & I wasn't nervous about showering w/o shoes on for once (though they need to just rip the carpet out & put in some laminate or wood-looking latex flooring b/c that navy blue just shows every bit of dust, and the smell of the Arm & Hammer vacuum bag stuff just isn't very pleasing). Bed was comfortable, though the blanket was not a double sized blanket so the spouse & I played tug-o-war all night. Also, the lobby area had a strong disinfectant smell that kind of made my nose burn).
Other than that, our stay was good. Staff was friendly & helpful, and they added to the continental breakfast offerings w/some eggs & sausage in honor of Ring Day/Parent's Weekend, so that was nice...especially considering the price we paid for the room (which was more than double what they normally charge, thanks to the special events on campus, BUT, you can't hate them for doing what everyone else in town does when every bed in town is guaranteed to sell...it's called supply & demand folks...yes, I know it's also called price gouging, but if you've waited until everything else is booked, unless you have a friend in town or w Fifth wheel, you take what you can get, and feel lucky to have found anything at all). If you are wondering how they get away w/jacking up their prices on special event weekends, look at the notice on the back of the door to the room...it states their regular price is $199, so those who have gotten the room for $69 got a great deal according to them...Even if that $69 is all year except game weekends, graduation, etc.
I'd stay there again, but only if I could get the cheap/regular rate...otherwise, I will try not to do the last minute thing ever again...
