“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Love this hotel! Such a comfortable place to stay in Auburn. The staff is very professional and the hotel itself is set up very nicely. If you are an Auburn lover, you will love the tasteful décor that incorporates the touches of orange and blue throughout the rooms. The shower is amazing, but may not be suitable for families with small children though as there isn't a bath. Overall, one of may favorite places to stay. War eagle!

Very nice, clean hotel, conveniently located across from the Auburn University Campus.
The rooms are comfortable, clean, quiet. The beds are very comfy.
This hotel is perfect for anyone coming to Auburn to do business or research at the university.
Would stay there again in the future!

Now owned by Auburn Univeristy - they have stepped this up a notch -- depending on when you go it can be hectic, but this trip was a breeze --- not busy (football watch out - but unless you get lucky and are on the waiting list for a room you won't get one and they aren't cheap) - I attended a meeting and it was nice and relaxing - check in was a little slow and there is no one to help with bags. All in all a good place - the rooms have been updated - they do allow dogs and one night one barked a bit - but it calmed down after it's parents returned. I do believe that all students working there are hospitality majors so this in fact a true University hotel that is not only a place to stay but is giving students experience --- they are lucky to have this on campus (directly across from Samford Hall so in theory on Campus)

Room Tip: Get a view that is on the corner overlooking Samford Hall and Campus - that is not near rooms with p...

Dear Auburntiger91:

Thank you so much for being our guest on your recent return to Auburn, and for giving us such great feedback on your experience.

As you noted, we are owned by Auburn University, and are truly offering the students of AU a real time laboratory to put into practice the lessons learned in the classroom. Not only the Hospitality Management program, but also Interior Design, Marketing, and Engineering students have had the opportunity to use our facility to further their education in addition to gaining practical experience.

I do apologize that we did not have a bellman available to assist you upon arrival; our bell stand is staffed by a wonderful team of students who truly go out of their way to offer our guests anything that they need during their stay and I do hope that you have the chance to meet them on your next visit.

Thank you again for being our guest; we look forward to welcoming you back to Auburn in the future.

This was our 2nd visit to the Hotel as our son contemplates going to Auburn. The hotel is located across the street from the campus and a short walk to all area's of the town. The rooms are spacious,clean and the beds are very comfortable. The Staff is very friendly from the minute you walk in the front door. We were looking for a restaurant in town and the recommendation was perfect. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning and the food was fantastic and was enough to keep us going all day long during our appointments on campus. We look forward to spending many more nights.

The Hotel at Auburn University is great! The facility is excellent including the rooms and common areas. Everything is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is located right on the campus of Auburn University and it has a lot of local charm as opposed to the usual chain hotels. We plan to stay here at often as we can during our visits to Auburn University. Book in advance as this hotel is very popular.

As we are owned by, and located on the campus of Auburn University, we obviously have a location that can't be matched anywhere in Auburn.

I stayed here as a student for a week-long residency in the Graduate School this past May. Southern hospitality was evident and abundant from the minute I checked in and throughout my stay. The hotel is very conveniently located to campus for class and to a lovely downtown area with very nice shops and restaurants close by. The hotel and rooms are beautiful, comfortable, very clean, and so quiet - it was no problem studying at all. The beds are very comfortable and breakfast each morning at Ariccia was fantastic. Be sure to order an omelet custom made with great care by Rico, one of the chefs. He served up breakfast with great enthusiasm and cheer - a nice way to start the day, and oh, the food was good too! Overall, the staff is very attentive. They were especially helpful when I left something important behind. I called when I returned home, and they informed me that they had the item and promptly overnighted it back to me. I look forward to many future stays at AUHCC when I return back to school. War Eagle!

Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful review of your recent stay at The Hotel at Auburn University.

Over the course of the year, we all look forward to welcoming back all of our professional students from all over the country who are enrolled in Auburn's Professional MBA programs. As a part of Auburn University, we hope that you all consider us your "home" at Auburn and that you are able to feel that connection to the University during your stay here. It's always great to see all the attendees in their Auburn gear and getting into the spirit of the campus during their time with us.

Stayed there with my daughter for a Girls Weekend. Great location, friendly and professional team and service. The rooms are comfortable, well maintained and cosy. The beds are fantastic. We went for dinner to the Italien Restaurant in the hotel. The food was delicious, the staff was attentive and the prices are decent. All in all a very nice stay and a lovely hotel.
