I love the grounds of Scarritt-Bennett Center!
I was housed in one of the more spartan rooms but even then it was clean and relatively comfortable. It was nice to have a bathroom with a tub and I didn't mind sharing since I knew the person in the room next to me. One disadvantage was that my room was facing a main road and that got noisy because there appeared to be student housing of some kind across the street. But beyond that it was nice. DO remember to bring your own hair dryer (if necessary) and toiletries if you want something other than bar soap.
The food in the cafeteria is wonderful! The staff are helpful and willing to accommodate dietary needs as best as they can. They serve an extensive line of high-end fair trade/organic teas (one of my hooks).
SB Center is also within easy walking distance of many local, and sometimes famous eateries, too.
I would definitely return if the opportunity arises.
