This was my 5th stay at the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center. As has been the case each time I have stayed here, the facilities were excellent, the staff was attentive and polite, and the rooms were clean and well appointed. Thank you for making the retreat weekend a highlight each year!

Rutgers' Inn was a cosy, quiet surprise between Cook and Douglas campuses. Campus life all around, for me it was a beautiful wonderland of treasured places to find old mansions, the best of anything a simple student diet would need served with graciousness by a diverse body of students and locals. The room was clean and comfortable. Service was everything...

For anyone visiting Rutgers' New Brunswick campuses, the University Inn and Conference Center is a good choice for lodging. The rooms are pleasant and extremely clean. They offer refrigerators and microwaves. The bathrooms are dated, but again clean. Staff were pleasant. The University Inn is a better option than other inexpensive hotels in East Brunswick and nearby locales.

We apologize for your recent stay where you experienced some issues with noise. I'm not sure why the guests you mention were walking around in strange costumes. It also appears as if you werent' allowed into your room until 4:30, which is not the norm as well. Our check in time is 4:00pm.

The room was clean, but the bathroom was dated. The main problem was that the hotel had switched over to heat, so the air conditioning was disabled. It was in the mid-80s while I was there, and the room was unbearably hot. They provided a fan, but I hardly slept while I was there because of the heat. Had the...

We have stayed here twice this year. Most recently we stayed for a week. This is a small, intimate hotel on the Rutgers campus. It is not a fancy place at all, but it is very comfortable. I have slept better here than any hotel in recent memory. The staff here makes the stay special. They are just good friendly...

Convenient for Rutgers as there are the free Campus buses to get around. The stop is outside. it is a circular one way route. Note that the weekend bus service is different. No breakfast included so plan ahead. Quiet location. Lift the flaps on the air con unit to see the controls.

Stayed 3 nights. Located on the Douglass campus, so you will have to take the EE or F bus to the main campus, but the bus is free and the stop is right in front of the parking lot. Room is very nice, TV works well and has USB/HDMI connections. Bathroom had towels and shampoo/soap which were refreshed every day....

We have chosen the University Inn over more expensive and more plush hotels in the area because it is always clean, comfortable, quiet, and a good value. We have had to ask for extra towels each time we've stayed (it's stocked only for two and we had three travelers) -- but other than that, no complaints!
