    We have been coming here for years because it is next to the hotel and is always spotlessly clean. The staff knows us by name and is always friendly and helpful. We love the shuttle to the hospital and the free coffee in the lobby!

    Hi Luvtigg! We do not have a fitness center on the property. There is a great jogging trail nearby- Duke's Al Beuhler trail or we can recommend a fitness club nearby to fit your needs. Thanks- University Inn

    Hi Robert! Typically it is not a problem to extend your stay and keep your same room. We recommend that you inform the front desk of any changes to your length of stay as soon as you can. We hope this helps!
