My wife and I stayed here for one night, 1/15/12, which was the holiday weekend. The lodging facility as well as the campus were very quiet (due in part to the holiday weekend, I assume). We went to a concert at the Pageant a couple of miles up the road and picked this place for the slightly lower rate, the expected peace, free breakfast, snacks and drinks on each floor and free internet. I was given security credentials for the Wi-Fi, but didn't see that option listed in my connections (just used the non-secured network). Parking was across the street in the garage and was free on Sunday, but not on Monday. I opted against the $6 parking pass for Monday assuming that, like many campus parking rules, the first ticket would be a warning. We checked out at noon and found no ticket (again, maybe because it was a holiday). The location was a bit tricky to find, but I blame my out-dated GPS on that. Breakfast was average, got the job done and was worth WAY more than we paid for it. I appreciated the professionalism of the staff. One maid in particular chased us down after we left because my wife had left her contour pillow behind. Took a walk through the campus as well as the neighborhoods just north of campus, both were beautiful. I would recommend this property based on my first experience there. We also recommend www.baileyschocolatebar.com for dinner and/or dessert. It was a 15 minute drive to get there.
