Would choose again

Pros: Staff courteous, room very nice, breakfast good.
Cons: Coffee maker in room was inadequate.
Location: Good location for our conference. Only there one night.
Convenient to our conference. Some road construction, but easy to access hotel. Room was on the small side, but had everything we needed. Breakfast had many options, tasty. Enjoyed our short stay.

Very nice, inexpensive hotel

Pros: I really liked the decor which I don't usually notice or is standard hotel, but it was nice here, especially the photography over the bed.
I took a chance because the hotel management answers every comment, which impressed me, and I wasn't disappointed. I've stayed in some low cost dives to save money, and the Sleep Inn University is definitely not in that class. You can believe the high comment ratings. I think the rooms are small as was mentioned in one review, so it may not be a good place for families, but other than that, it was very nice and seemed like a safe location. There didn't seem to be any noise problems in my room. Lots of things nearby for eating, etc. I also think it's an older facility, but you can't tell. It's kept up very well. I had the same problem with the shower and getting water on the floor. The first time I used it the door was open a little too far. Maybe you could add some kind of a rubber stop that wouldn't prevent it from swinging both ways but might make a more positive indication of where is should be for showering.

I would've expected to pay more

I booked this hotel because it was a great price. For the price I paid, I really didn't expect such a great stay. Check-in took about 5 minutes, tops. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. The carpet in the corridor was a little stained but when we got to the room, I was very impressed. Everything looked new and the bed was very comfortable. Best night's sleep I've gotten in a long time. The continental breakfast was more than I expected and very good. Check-out time was not until noon! Loved being able to sleep later! Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Clean and roomy....but....

Pros: clean
Cons: Give me a ADA room as requested
Location: malls....Ikea
The hotel is close to malls, CMS and business park at University. Our room was clean and neat. But I had reserved a ADA compliant room weeks in advance but they were unable to provide this room or notify my before check-in. This made my stay less than ideal but OK otherwise.

Good overall value

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
There might be newer hotels in the university area, but this is definitely one of the few ones that will get you more than you pay for. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean. Free Breakfast is nothing really fancy but definitely nice. Whenever I have guests in town, I always book this hotel, and with its reasonable price It has met my expectations so far.

I checked in to my no-smoking room and within minutes started having asthma from the smoke smell. I asked to be switched, but had to go to 3 rooms to find one that didn't smell like smoke and other things. The one I ended up in smelled bad, but not like smoke. To be fair, they had just had concert-goers that smelled up the place, but still...The management was VERY accomodating, but the options just weren;t great. I would only stay here only if I didn't have any other choice. On the good side, the bed was comfortable, the a/c worked great. The breakfast was good, too.
