This hotel is beautiful and located in the perfect location for your Auburn visit. First, check in was a breeze and welcoming. Second, the room and hotel was well taken care of, very beautiful and spacious. We had dinner in the Italian restaurant and it was delicious. Missed breakfast but it looked great. Overall, I would never stay anywhere else in Auburn after staying in this hotel. A real gem!! Great service all around.

This hotel was an expected gem. We are faithful to Texas A&M, but nonetheless wanted to see the Auburn campus while in that part of the US. We chose The Hotel at Auburn University because it has some pet friendly rooms. Everything exceeded our expectations. Beautiful building, scrumptious breakfast, and delightful staff. They were even nice enough to inspect our room, per our request, to make sure our entire $250 per deposit would be refunded. It was. I highly recommend this lovely hotel to anyone, even (whoop) Texas Aggies. The Auburn University students on staff are doing a terrific job. To them we say, Gig 'Em. PS: does anyone know the history of this building? The outside looks late 20th century, but the interior architecture shows the grace of another era.

Dear JosiahVinson:

Thank you so much for being our guest at The Hotel at Auburn University while you were traveling through the area, and for giving us such a great review here on Trip Advisor

We have a large amount of guests who stay at the hotel while visiting the Auburn Veterinary School, so we are always happy to welcome our four legged guests to Auburn! Our fantastic staff of AU students and hospitality professionals do all that we can to ensure a wonderful stay for all.

As for the hotel itself, it was constructed in 1988, opening it's doors to guests in 1989. Prior to construction, the land the hotel sits upon was the site of AU's original "Greek Row"; in fact the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house is our neighbor to the south and the last remaining fraternity house on the east side of campus. Our lobby and public areas are decorated with original antique pieces donated for use in the hotel, and accented with a wonderful collection of photographs showcasing the rich history of the school we now know and love as Auburn University. This has leant an old world charm to the hotel, and serves as a bridge between AU's past and present, and truly provides all guests with a warm welcome home.

Thank you again for being our guest; we hope to see you again soon!

With regards,

David Merryman

This hotel is close to everything (Downtown, the Auburn campus and the interstate). Perfect for visiting a student, athletics, business or just pleasure. The staff greets you with a smile, the bell boys are there to help and the rooms are nice and efficient. The in house resturant is nice and the breakfast buffets are extensive; also there are other good resturants within walking distance if you choose to eat out. There is a nice "wine bar", an outside veranda to eat or relax and of course a pool and workout room. Even the housekeeping crew is very nice and helpful (I never forget to leave a room tip). This is a full service hotel and is every bit as accomidationg and pleasurable to stay as most 5 star proprties. i have stayed here at least 80 nights over the last several years (mostly football wekends but not all).

Room Tip: All the rooms are good and have a view except the rooms on the east side look at another building.

We truly are the "front door" to Auburn University, and our amazing staff of Auburn students and hospitality professionals work tirelessly to ensure that from beginning to end, our guests have an amazing visit.

I stay here 20 nights per year. Finest service and people in the area. Restaurant is excellent. Front desk is the best, and compares with any 5-Star hotel in the country. I highly recommend your next visit to Auburn includes a stay at the AUHCC.

I've stayed at this hotel 3 times in the last 2 months, typically for 2 nights each stay. Nicely located with easy walking to some great restaurants. Very consistent experience, with attentive staff and very comfortable rooms. Rooms still have individual heating/cooling units which can be fairly loud, that's my only criticism. Staff at the bar and lounge are great at conversation and making you feel comfortable. Pizza on the menu is terrific! Overall, a great place to stay if in town on business.

This hotel is a great spot in Auburn. Not only is it across the street from the University and just down from Toomer's Corner, the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast buffet was great, and they have a wonderful setup for gameday. I was very impressed with my experience here -- I just don't think you'll find anything better in town.

Dear corklevy:

Thank you so much for staying with us during your recent visit to Auburn, and for taking a moment to give us such a wonderful review of your experience.

As you noted, our location on the campus of Auburn University is second to none, putting our guests right in the center of all that Auburn has to offer, especially on football home weekends. As we are Auburn's training hotel, we have been home away from home for generations of Tiger fans, and cherish our strong connection to all of the Auburn Family.

I do hope that if your travels bring you back to Auburn, we will have a chance to welcome you back to The Hotel at Auburn University.

I have stayed at the Hotel at Auburn University multiple times. Always a friendly staff with southern hospitality. An older hotel, so rooms are smaller and walls are thinner than the more upscale newer hotels. More like a boutique experience. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable and there are multiple outlets for your technology. The breakfast buffet is always a winner. They will make you feel very welcomed. While southern hospitable, service can be slow as in most southern experiences, so those not from the south may be a bit impatient. Nothing beats the location of this hotel. You can walk across to the University and to shopping and dining in the quaint downtown. I always enjoy staying here!
