The hotel was in a great location for us. We found the accommodations to be average. One bonus was a great coffee machine in the lobby.

Overall Score1.0/ 5
On January 24th I webt online to place a reservation for January 26th January 28th! On the January 25th I called university inn to cancel my reservation for the 26th. (The following day) when I called to cancel thee reservation a woman answered the phone and had already had a poor attitude. I told her I had mad a reservation lastnight and needed to cancel. She asked me for my name, when I ga e her my name she responded " doesn't matter if I cancelled because my card hadnt went through anyway! And I said okay well regardless of the payment or not im calling to cancel, she made a very rude and very unprofessional response then hung up. I called back asked to speak to management, she said she was the manger and hung up again. I called several times with no response.! On the 29th I received a text and gmail notification that university inn hotel took $100 then $12.05. As well as a 14.05 from my account. now ive never stayed there and called to cancel the reservation a day before my stay so for tou guys to take $126.+10 is outrageous and I demand my money back because not only did I call on the 29th to ask why you guys have taken my money out of my acccount but the call was answered by the same rude employee. I told her to put my money back in my card she was even more unprofessional then the first call and hung up again. I have all my phone calls are recorded anyway due to legal reasons so I have it all recored. And your hotel also tokk another $100 out on the 30th. I have the proof of the money being taken out proof I never stayed at your hotel as well as the audio recordings. I contacted my cardholder and has started a full investigation. I want my now $226 refunded to my card immediately! If in late on my housing payment that cost me a $75 late fee please contact me asap.

"I had never heard of your website, but my nephew has hotel experience and mentioned it. This is the first time I have had to book a block of rooms for a family wedding, and I was somewhat concerned about how to go about it. Your website made it easy, and and I would highly recommend it." K.C. - Catskills, NY
