“Convenient and clean...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We were at UConn for 2 days for baseball clinic for my husband's baseball team. Our decision to stay was a bit last minute but we found it to be fine. Obviously you are limited with options near campus and this works well if you are required to be at the school's facilities. They are a "green" hotel - so no AC in the halls and it takes a while for the room's AC to kick in when you enter the room. Not always the best after a hot day in the sun. We ate at the Tavern and the selection is small but the food is great. We enjoyed that it was clean but other than that and the convenience there isn't much more.
Also, you pay $8.50 to park your car so you don't get ticketed. It is great they have a lot reserved for guests of the hotel but I don't think the parking charge is necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. Being right on campus makes it very easy to get around when you have business in the area. We do have AC units in all the hallways but with this recent opressive weather we have had over the past week they are working overtime and for that I am so sorry. Now that you know where we are we hope you stay with us again when you are in the area.

I was very happy staying here while my daughter attended orientation at UCONN. Located on campus, so could walk to downtown Storrs and anything on campus. Indoor pool and hot tub were a bonus. Gym on site, too, but I didn't use it. Nice function room and restaurant. Water pressure in shower was FANTASTIC!!!!

We checked in around 10pm for our overnight stay and found that it was well-run and generally nice, but in need of a little updating. The staff we encountered was friendly but the check-in clerk at that hour was a little introverted which was strange and the waitress in the restaurant at breakfast was also odd--there were 4 tables to wait on and she was beyond stressed and had a very loud voice--so weird--she kept apologizing for the wait (and we did wait for a long time to give our order) and she was pleasant, but we felt so stressed by her manner that we couldn't wait to eat and leave. We also found the breakfast to be way over-priced and not very good. The room itself was okay but the A/C was ridiculously noisy! I think that it would provide good white noise if it didn't sound like a jack hammer. With all this negative commentary, I would stay again as it is so convenient as it is on campus.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room far from the event rooms and restaurant as it was very noisy near those areas...

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. We are in the middle of renovating a number of items including the HVAC units as we are aware of some of the noise issues. I will review our staffing as we always have two servers or more on for breakfast and it was odd that there was only one. I am glad that you can put that aside and stay with us again when you are in the area.

The A/C units are cheap cheap cheap! Translation: NOISY NOISY NOISY! They run throguh cycles that sing in around 8 or 9 different pitches, speeds, clunks, and so forth, probably in the name of energy efficiency. Was awakened every 14 - 17 minutes with the kick on, compressor power up, slow fan followed by compressor knock of and high speed fan to squeeze out the maximum cooling capacity. It was nightmarish! Please, you are the flagship of UCONN for accomodations. Also, we had breakfast and the restaurant seemed to be manned by a single person. I caught on to this before we ordered and selected the yogurt-fruit-granola parfait to make it fast. Didn't consider that the waiter was also delivering food for room service and waited 15 or 20 minutes after finishing to pay. The waiter never came back and I had to be somewhere so left a $20 bill on the table to cover what was probably a $12 bill. Went into elevator to go upstairs to get our bags and get out of Dodge and who gets out of the elevator while we were getting on? OUR WAITER returning from a room service delivery. Get some staff, get some new A/C units and that'd be a beginning. Otherwise, not sure if I could stay again.

Thank you for bring up the issues you had during your stay with us. We have recently had issues with a couple of our units and are in the process of replacing them. We are always staffed with at least two servers so I am surprised that there was only one on when you were there. I would hope that you might give us another opportunity as I truely believe this was not an example of the great service we provide to our customers

If you are at an event on the UConn campus, this is a pretty good choice. I ate one breakfast there, and the food was excellent. I ate a few meals in the tavern The food was OK but a little expensive, and I would have walked to the Subway at the Student Union for a less expensive option. Service is friendly, but the one time I ordered room service I had to call back and ask for eating utensils.. The pool is OK. It was hot in the hallway outside my room, and there was a smell for several days coming from a mechanical room--but inside my room it was nice, and the housekeeping staff was friendly and accommodating. It is not a large place, so it is not like you will get lost in the crowd.

A little confusing to find as it is hidden in the middle of the UCONN campus. It can get very busy when collage events are taking place. Overall it is very clean and the staff is very helpful. The best part is the lounge located in the lobby so you can enjoy a cocktail and not have to drive after. Bartenders are very friendly and they also serve very good food. Also there are many other food options within walking distance of the campus. Just keep in mind it is located on a campus so it is a very busy area. All in all a nice place to stay for business if you are not the type of person who goes to bed at 8:00 P.M. They also serve a nice breakfast in the lobby each morning.

We have stayed for over two weeks to get our daughter admitted to UCONN. According to our search to stay a decent place but closer to University the choices narrowed down to Nathan Hale Only. When you don't have any competition, you are not sure of what you are supposed to get.

To our surprise the staff there were very friendly. Ground Floor pub and restaurant were well maintained coupled with fast service with smile. Good Gym and Pool. Floor Corridors needs some uplift otherwise a thumps up.
