Avoid this place, if you can. The University "Inn" is guilty of unethical advertising. It's not at all an inn, but rather a fair quality motel. Furthermore, on the first page of the website, it says, "Better Customer Service than the Ritz." This is a laughable lie that is complete false advertising.
Our first night there, we stayed in the "Guest House," which is another example of their pattern of false advertising. It was a stand alone yucky dump of a motel, which was significantly worse than the main motel (itself, nothing to write home about). The room was tiny, no closet (no room for one!), rusty fixtures, stained carpeting, stained bathroom mirror and a super noisy bathroom fan. Note, none of the rooms in the guest house or the main motel have central heating. In our room in the "guest house," the heater/AC unit was located right next to the bed. As a result, the dry heat blew on you all night long, alternating between cold and hot, making it almost impossible to sleep.
We then moved to the main "inn" after that awful night. It was significantly better, but still had some issues. There were some positives in that the room was big and we had free wireless internet. However, the heat, while further away from the bed was way too hot and unadjustable. The fixtures were somewhat rusty still, cheap carpeting and cheap sheets. There was a little mold in the shower. It wasn't horrible (like the "guest house"), but wasn't great, definitely not the Ritz!
Overall, the University Inn owners should invest a little in upgrading the main rooms. It wouldn't take much to make significant improvements. The "guest house," however, should be imploded.
