We stayed two nights at the Inn during the 2010 Freshmen Orientation. The hotel is actually quite nice. We had no problems checking in and the staff was courteous. The rooms were a good size and I was very glad that free WiFi is available.
My one and only gripe is that our room AC would not cool below 70 degrees. The facilities engineer responded promptly and attempted to ascertain the problem. But, in the end the fix was to just leave it on manual and let it run constantly. It was comfortable- but thank goodness it wasn't a blistering hot week.
One other comment that is noteworthy is that the hotel was pretty full during our stay. Despite that fact- we never heard any noises through the walls from our neighbors. Perhaps we had exceptionally quiet neighbors, but I think it might be partially attributed to the solid construction between rooms.
I was also a bit miffed, initially, at the parking charge. But the parking permit gave us a lot of latitude to park on campus in very convenient places, so in the end it was well worth it.
I would definitely stay here again. It's close to the campus (not exactly easy walking distance) but a lot closer than many other lodging locations and the parking permit makes up for that. Enjoy!
