We were a family of 2 adults and 3 older children.We had 1 overnight stay at the University Square hotel and had a OK experience. We always check for bedbugs and found nothing. The beds were very good to sleep. Rooms and bathroom were clean. They offered an American breakfast, which was OK.

Recently, my family and I had a trip to Yosemite and Sequoia park. We stayed in this hotel. Even on a day with full occupancy, front desk staff was nice to answer all my questions related to the gym, pool time, guest laundry. Check in was quick.This hotel is recently remodeled with new laminate flooring. Room nice and clean. Breakfast... More

The rooms were nice but a bit worn. The beds were comfortable. The people were polite. The breakfast was better then others. Marie Callender's is right on the corner and gave us a 20% discount with room key card that was nice. Grounds could use some more care.

With this hotel you get exactly what you paid for. A typical 2.5 star accomodations. I stayed just for one night and skipped breakfast, so cant comment on that (but its a plus that free breakfast is included). The toom was ok, clean and spatious. Furniture was a bit old and worn. Overall - a good experience. In-room coffee was... More

Literally, the worst hotel I have been to in my entire life. Not only the floors ( covered by a conveniently dark carpet) were stained and dirty, not even vacuumed prior to our arrival, but even when we stayed there, they remained covered with dirt from previous clients. Upon opening the bathroom door cockroaches ran around, except for one that... More

We just stayed here for three nights. It was a really cheap last minute booking and we weren't disappointed due to the value for money. The hotel has a pool which is a nice facility, quite big but not completely clean. Breakfast wasn't brilliant and only lasted until 9am. Our bedroom had two enormous queen size beds with a big...

This hotel has a great little pool, the rooms open out into a courtyard with big sliding doors, lots of light. The wood floors and academic feel was nice. The free breakfast hit the spot. Room was nice with microwave and fridge, great everything and beds were just fine. I would stay here again. We'd read some reviews that said... More

This hotel, for the price, is terrific! The beds are comfy, the bathrooms clean and the room (with 2 king-size beds) are spacious. The pool and spa were warm & relaxing. Vending & ice machines were provided and a 7-11 right next door. Breakfast was very ordinary but that wasn't too much of a problem - compared to the hotel... More

The whole hotel has seen better days. Huge clean room but everything worn and in need of replacing. Free parking and a great location help make up for some of it. The lady at check in seemed more irritated that I disturbed her, but a smile and kind words helped her loosen up a bit.

Decor is terrible, beds sag to the middle and are extremely poor. Shower does not work properly, water is like drip, you really have to play with it to get enough water out to the spout to shower. Fixtures are dated way back. Flooring is wood which was not too bad, make sure you don't have sand on your shoes... More
