We brought our triplet teens for a college tour. The staff was very helpful and placed us in adjoining rooms that suited our needs perfectly. We ate breakfast at the buffet. It was delicious. Loved the croissants and the made-to-order omelettes. We will definitely try dinner at the restaurant on our next stay. The views of campus are beautiful and the walk to shops and dining downtown is a breeze.
The location is a real plus!

Dear ThreeHmom:

Thank you so much for staying with us while visiting Auburn University with your triplet teens, and for taking the time to give such a great review of your experience.

As you noted, our location right on Auburn University's campus can't be beat! I'm also happy to hear that you had the chance to enjoy our newly remodeled restaurant; we are putting the finishing touches on our remodeled outdoor dining space and hope that you have the chance to experience that on your next visit.

I hope that your children decide to become part of the Auburn Family and that we will have the chance to welcome you back to the Plains over the upcoming years!

With regards,

David Merryman

The hotel is huge but the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Most seemed to be students at the university across the road. Our room was perfectly comfortable. The room looked as though it had been refurbished (in a dark wood and plaid style) however the bathroom needed a bit more attention. The fittings were not modern and the bathroom itself was pretty worn. Overall however it was fine and we enjoyed our stay.

Stayed 1 night here for a New Years/birthday celebration. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Romaine Scott (Front Office Manager) made the experience like none other. He worked with me via email to make sure the birthday surprise went off without a hitch. I greatly thank him for that. Excellent location, great rooms, good food at Ariccia. Great live jazz music at the adjoining lounge Piccolo. Would definitely stay here again and again.

Highly recommend this hotel. Don't be put off by the rather bland exterior. Inside, starting in the lobby and extending to include the bedrooms, it is tastefully furnished and conveys the character of an old country inn, but with all modern conveniences, including proper walk-in showers.

Food is very good. Location just across from the very pretty campus and a block from main street.

Dear Ballinora4:

Thank you for staying with us on your recent trip to Auburn, and for offering such positive feedback on your experience at The Hotel at Auburn University.

I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and location of the hotel; being on the campus of Auburn University certainly affords us a location that is second to none! We have tried to incorporate our deep ties to the university in the design of our public spaces and guest rooms, using accents of blue and orange and vintage black and white photographs of the University throughout the hotel.

I hope you had a safe journey home to Ireland, and should your travels bring you back to Auburn, we hope to welcome you back to The Hotel at Auburn University.

We traveled to Auburn to visit a nephew who is attending school. The hotel is very easy to find, centrally located and convenient to downtown and the campus. The parking lot is huge and secure. The lobby is beautiful and the checkin was efficient and friendly. We paid $112 for a double. The elevators are conveniently located and quick. The hallways are a bit quirky but we found our room all the time being greeted by the housekeeping staff. This has got to be one of the friendliest hotels on earth. The room was adequate but I would not say spacious. The beds were super comfortable with very nice linens and plenty of pillows. The internet was quick, just what you would expect in a university town. The bathroom is overpowered by the huge shower - a little more counter space would be more appreciated. The pod coffee was some of the best hotel coffee I have ever had. My only complaint is they really need to offer a continental breakfast. At this price point and for the quality of the hotel breakfast should be offered.

I also used both the gym and the business center. Both were adequate and easy to access.

If I had to stay in Auburn again I would definitely consider this hotel though I might go elsewhere because of the lack of breakfast.

Dear Rockingtraveler:

Thank you for staying with us at The Hotel at Auburn University while visiting your nephew at AU, and for sharing such positive feedback about your experience.

I have always said that the true hallmark of a great hotel is having a well trained, friendly, and guest focused staff; where guest service is genuine and sincere. I truly believe that our amazing team of hospitality professionals and students are second to none, and prove that true Southern hospitality is alive and well in Auburn.

We are offering some amazing packages this fall and winter that offer a 10% discount off of the room rate and includes a food and beverage credit that can be used for room service breakfast, or for any meal in our award winning Ariccia restaurant. On your next visit to Auburn, I certainly encourage you to take a look at some of our packages and see if there is one that would suit your needs; our reservation staff will be happy to assist you in any way.

Thank you again for your stay and for giving us such an excellent review. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Hotel at Auburn University!

My husband and I stayed here for one night en route to Atlanta Airport. The accommodation was clean, and modern and the staff professional. One young mail trainee was particularly helpful when we were checking out (sorry I didn't get his name).
We had dinner in the hotel's Italian restaurant and we can recommend both the food and the customer focussed waiting staff.
All in all, we would be more than happy to return to the hotel if staying in the area in future.

Room Tip: Our high level suite was excellent in all respects.

Great hotel, staff, food, everyone just delightful. We're going back for our niece's graduation in Dec and bringing some other relatives (we're kinda of sad she's graduating cause we won't be visiting again). But for those folks thinking of going to Auburn, this is the best place to stay. Just wonderful.
