We moved our daughter into the dorm at University of Dayton and booked two nights.
The parking garage is awful there are tight turns with cement buffers which have been hit numerous times as evident by many gouges and paint scrapings.The first night we found a spot on the second level which was creepy. but the second day we realized we were actually lucky as we ended up on the eight level with the ceiling falling down and a broken mirror leaning against the edge shattered. To make that experience worse, we had to walk down a stairway which had dried puke and garbage scattered around. This was in the middle of the day. That evening we were not even able to get into the garage, it was full. We went all the way to the top and back down. Nightmare. The man at the desk was useless and told us to park on the street. The area is desolate, run down with one empty storefront after the next. We parked a block away. Not safe!
The room was okay until we took our shoes off. The carpet was sticky. Have to wonder when it was last cleaned. The side chair was stained also and the office chair for the desk was ripped. The room was equipped with an iron and board but the iron finish was bubbling off and left markings on the towel that we tested before attempting to apply to our clothing. It took 45 minuted to get a different iron delivered.
We feel that at one time this may have been a nice place to stay but definitely is not the place to be now!
