Nine of us stayed on the VT v. NU weekend in 4 rooms. Each room as 2 "double beds"....i guess....seemed small to me. Standard hotel room, nothing more but not all bad. Hotel was average but charged a whopping 240 per night based on the football game. This place is OK as per my ratings, but they were not able to come through on the claims the front desk made when I booked this trip. First, they would not provide any shuttle service to the game area. When I booked it I was told this would be possible. You know, jump in the van, get in the ball park of the stadium and walk on in. When we checked in they simply declared it was not possible. This wasn't a big problem because I also had been told we could take the public bus right to the stadium. When we got here the lady at the desk declared that the buses don't run on football Saturdays. Grrrrrrrr. Plus, they are about 2.5 miles from the stadium and you simply cannot walk there....to dangerous from a traffic standpoint.
So, if the rate is cheap and you aren't looking for an in close hotel, consider this place.
By the way, the mexican restaurant next door is good. Try the chicken fajitas quesidilla.
