Dirty, expensive, cramped, dated. These are just a few of the words I could use to describe my experience with the Kensington Court. Don't let the fancy name fool you. I reserved a room here with the orientation discount. Based on the photos I thought it was nice and the price was good. Foolish me, I didn't check trip advisor or yelp before booking for move-in day. I booked my room for when I drop my student off. The cost is 2.5x what it cost for orientation. My experience this past weekend was terrible. The first room I received had its sliding door window face into the tile hallway. No sunlight, noisy with the towel carts rolling over the tiles, dated and dirty. The bathroom was far from clean. I moved my room across the hall. It wasn't as dated as the first room and had a window to the outside, although it was on the highway side. Wear ear plugs if you stay at this hotel. Walls are paper thin. Not worth the regular rate and if it's a football/move-in weekend you can't change your reservation. The one star is for the staff. They are pleasant and the common rooms are nice enough.
