Verified Reviews of University Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Surprisingly very nice place."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I was pleasantly surprised to stay in such a nice place. The room was very clean, nicely decorated and even got water bottles, chocolates, an in room fridge and coffee. The pool was heated and just terrific. It was clean and on the larger size. You could rent a canoe as well and paddle the river behind the hotel. Breakfast was included, but we did not eat because I spent too much time in the pool and missed the 10 o'clock AM cut off. There were only two negatives: the shower did not drain very well (a pet peeve of mine)and the workout room was very musty and dated. Overall, I would stay here again and would recommend to friends and family.
