I had a pleasant two-night stay at this on-campus hotel. Here are some positive and negative aspects I found then: 1. Positives: They are right on campus, and the staff--all of whom were very nice--know all the facilities on campus. So it is, obviously, super convenient if you're on a business trip to the U Conn, Storrs. I did not... More

This hotel needs basic facility maintenance and improvements for the price you pay (fixing tile, re-gluing wallpaper, touching-up paint on the walls). The service was good, you're paying for the convenience of being on campus. Also, be aware that the upper floors have been converted to student housing.

Just traveling to Storrs overnight for a concert at UCONN. Comfortable, clean at a reasonable price. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Suited our needs. No complementary continental breakfast. There is a pub and restaurant on site if you're not inclined to take a 10 min. walk to Storrs/Mansfield center.

Great location right on campus. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you stepped back into the 1980's. The Lobby, elevators, hallways, and especially the rooms need a complete renovation. The bathrooms in the rooms are the worst off...Wallpaper starting to peel off, Stains in the sink, damaged tiles in floor.

Enjoyed 2 nights, generous sized rooms, all clean, friendly staff. Great night's sleep, quiet, comfortable bed. Breakfast was great, ate in the restaurant at the bar both nights and did not disappoint. Very convenient, older hotel but completely acceptable for my stay, in every way.
