Room was dirty. Had not been cleaned since last customer. Toilet filthy, not been flushed. Room floor was littered with paper, etc. They changed rooms for us. The next room, the tv did not work. We had a another person actually open our door, as they had been given the same room. There were what looked like dog prints on...

Friendly staff...Cute picnic area out front with shade. Rooms clean and spacious. Hope your not looking for fancey. But if your looking for a decent place to stay that won't break the bank, this is your place. Just spent 1 night while dropping off son at school. Call hotel directly for best rates. I happen to speak to the owner...

While this is a pet friendly motel, they do insist you take a smoking room when you bring your dogs. They did air it out as best they could, and while it did not reek of smoke, there was a slight, stale smoke smell. It did not ruin our stay, and the bed & linens did not smell. I liked...

I've stayed here several times and it is my preference because they still offer a couple smoking rooms AND you can open the windows in the room - huge plus. Room 51 is very cool, especially in the summer, it looks over someone's lovely garden and yard. Make sure you double confirm your reservations - they sometime have a problem...

I stayed here with a few friends in March. We went to a concert in Cedar Falls and then headed back to our room after. It was nice because the hotel was only about a 1/2 mile from the venue. Also, the room was very comfortable and the people were nice. We didn't have enough towels but all we had...

Stayed here for a wedding and it was a great place to stay. The customer service was great and the owner was very friendly. Took them no time before we were checked in and the room was just as I asked. The rooms were very comfortable and very roomy. Everything was very clean and this place is very well kept....

I stayed at the University Inn while attending an event at UNI. There is an older and newer parts of the hotel. I stayed in the newer part. It was a little odd having a door to the outside and a door to an inside hallway. The room was large and very clean. I even ran my finger over the...

Stayed at the University Inn for Sturgis Falls weekend. Booked the room because of the great price and was pleasantly surprised by the value. Rooms are not luxurious but very comfortable and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. My sisters also booked a room and they were very pleased as well. I stayed in Room 51, which is in...
