See previous review EXCEPT that in the morning, I found what spouse did not: a roll of toilet paper in a basket of towels. So, the roll I brought was needed, but the small amount of tp should have been replaced. Spouse thinks housekeeping staff did not return at noon, as he had requested.

Hotel's Favorite
Great place to stay. Very convenient getting to the football game. Rutgers has buses that will take you for free. Bus stop is just outside. Great weekend trip for this couple from Columbus Ohio. Will recommend

Our daughter got married in the Voorhees Chapel here at Rutgers. My spouse graduated here. Alumni get a 10% discounted rate and the Inn is very close to the Chapel. What's not to like? Free parking, comfortable beds, fridge, microwave, coffee maker with packets of coffees and tea, box of kleenex. What's not to like? We booked for 2 nights. Spouse was getting ready at 10 am when maids came to clean the room. He asked them to come back at noon. They left fresh towels before leaving. When we got back to the room after the reception we found the wet towels we left on the floor, as per instructions were still there. Trash not taken, no more hot cups or coffee, and not enough toilet paper. So, yes, thank the angels in heaven, I had brought a roll of toilet paper with us. I also booked a room for May, when our daughter will graduate. At least that's only for one night. Front desk is very helpful. When I called them they came to get the trash and said that they would advise the manager what occurred. If I had known we didn't have enough tp when I called I am certain front desk would have brought a roll, but it was disappointing to return to the room left as it was.

Responded Mar 15, 2020
We apologize for your experience. I will look into the issue to see what happen. As you can imagine, staffing schedules have been upended due to the recent issues with this virus. I am sure it was a misunderstanding. This is not normally how we operate.

would stay again. Requested queen room. Provided two doubles. Not quite what was preferred, but okay. Staff was pleasant, courteous and helpful. Loved seeing the deer on the grounds. Located a little remote from convenient dining options. Did not have the opportunity to use the bus.

Return visitors speak volumes. We're happy you would return. We apologize about the room mix up. We've already spoken to the agent who was responsible for your check in to avoid mistakes like this in the future.

Enjoyable night stay on the edge of the Rutgers/Douglas campus. Simple but clean facilities were exactly what we were looking for. Quiet and peaceful outdoor grounds. Convenient location to New Brunswick and anything on the Rutgers campus but a car is recommended. The only drawback was no on site dining.
