The Founders Inn and Spa is located on the edge of the Regent University campus. As such, it is the most convenient for visiting students. It has the least amount of dining options available.
The rooms have been remodeled and the quality of furnishings upgraded. There is now a mini-fridge in each room and a microwave in the snack machine room. One could wish for an in-room microwave, as the one in the hall had heavy use and was very dirty.
The pool and exercise rooms were immaculate, as was put hotel room. The in-room dining was expensive. Next time ill walk to a 7-11 and buy my breakfast. It will be cheaper and the coffee will be hot. The other option is to walk over to the Student Center and but breakfast there.
The Inn has a shuttle to the airport ($10) and a university shuttle (VERY infrequent but free).
It's clear that the Inn has suffered from the economy, but they made wise choices, for the most part, in curtailing services. A better choice for dining options would be a big improvement.

Thank you for bringing to my attention the condition of the microwave. I will communicate this with our Executive Housekeeper to ensure that more frequent visits are made to these areas each day.
We look forward to your next visit.
