All good things come to an end

I’ve stayed here once every fall for the last six or seven years, and I’ve always found it ideal. Unfortunately, though, they’ve recently decided to rent all of the second floor rooms as university housing to students. This means you can only get a ground-floor room, and the chances are very high that the students in the apartment above you will be if not noisy, then stomping through the creaky floorboards. Between that and the fact that the carpeting is showing it’s decades-old age, I have a feeling this was my last stay at university lodge. Hopefully they will consider taking the profits from the student housing deal, and use them to refurbish the very outdated and worn decor, and restore the lodge to the decent hotel it once was.

It was chosen for its central location. Also the price was right.

This inn has a great location but for the price it is very shabby, run down and disappointing. This place needs a makeover urgently - cleaner carpeting, new bed covers, and a paint job. It was relatively clean considering it’s shabbiness which makes it livable. But for $350 for two nights this place should be of higher standing. Would love to see this place w a makeover but sadly I will not recommend until it happens. The staff at front desk was pleasant- another saving feature.
