We have stayed here twice this year. Most recently we stayed for a week. This is a small, intimate hotel on the Rutgers campus. It is not a fancy place at all, but it is very comfortable. I have slept better here than any hotel in recent memory. The staff here makes the stay special. They are just good friendly...

Convenient for Rutgers as there are the free Campus buses to get around. The stop is outside. it is a circular one way route. Note that the weekend bus service is different. No breakfast included so plan ahead. Quiet location. Lift the flaps on the air con unit to see the controls.

Stayed 3 nights. Located on the Douglass campus, so you will have to take the EE or F bus to the main campus, but the bus is free and the stop is right in front of the parking lot. Room is very nice, TV works well and has USB/HDMI connections. Bathroom had towels and shampoo/soap which were refreshed every day....

We have chosen the University Inn over more expensive and more plush hotels in the area because it is always clean, comfortable, quiet, and a good value. We have had to ask for extra towels each time we've stayed (it's stocked only for two and we had three travelers) -- but other than that, no complaints!

Thank you for reviewing our Inn. I'm sorry to hear about your trouble with viewing channel 2. We rely on DirectTV and sometimes service could be spotty depending on weather. I will certainly pass along your kind words to our maintenance mechanic, James.

This was my second stay at Rutgers University Inn. I had a work related class in Edison and my daughter is a student at Rutgers, so decided to stay there. Everyone working there is very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are not fancy, but nice and comfortable. There is a refrigerator and microwave.

I've been a regular here since 2012. It's a hidden treasure! Clean, comfortable, efficient. The staff is superb--personable & professional. It's tucked away on a woodsy part of campus but you also get easy access to buses as well as ample parking. No food on premises so either bring stuff for the fridge or take 10 min ride downtown for...

I stayed with wife and two little daughters . The staff were extremely helpful. The accommodation was clean and quiet. There was a coffee machine at the lobby which serves different types of drinks for free. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again.

Some of the staff were friendly enough. Most were not so friendly. Others were plain incompetent. The one friendly staff member I saw would ring a taxi for me in the mornings. The other staff members would refuse outright to call a taxi for my partner, on the basis 'that we do not do that here'. Absurd. They told her...

Looked online prior to booking, reviews were very positive and the price was reasonable. Ended up being really nice, the room was very clean and the beds were comfy.
