First off the rooms are huge & have 2 flat screen TVs, couch, mini fridge, comfortable bed and great view of downtown. The building itself is cool and different than your typical hotel. Hotel is within walking distance of campus, breweries and downtown. Only bad thing was

Really this was a great price for the locations. Very close to three breweries and many food locations. Aside from the neighboring room reeking of cigarettes and weed it was a pleasant experience. Parking garage is tight but could fit our lifted F150.

We stayed at the Scholar hotel with 40 high school students. The staff were extremely accommodating to our needs and the hotel was modern and clean. Many students commented that it was the nicest hotel that have ever stayed. I highly recommend the Scholar hotel!!

My daughter and I were visiting WVU and in looking at a hotel, I picked the Scholar. The hotel is right in Morgantown and was perfect for our short walk to campus for the open house. The lobby was attractive, check in easy and our room was clean and very nice! We had a jacuzzi

I love this hotel with its expansive rooms and chic decor but our AC was loud and moldy. One of the mirrors in Bathroom evidently was taken down and the ratty wallpaper was left up. The housekeeping was abysmal. All they did was replace towels and didn't even make up the bed

I'd call the hotel but if there isn't snow yet, the rooftop will likely be open. There are two hot tubs up there. When we were there, they weren't particularly hot, though. Very nice view and set up if the bar is open.

"Ask for a suite it is totally worth the space!"
"we had a king bed and the room was nice."
"Rooms in the back are supposedly more quiet but it is Morgantown and they are a noisy bunch.."
"4th floor has quick access to the rooftop bar"
"Weekends rooms can be noisy close to bar on roof so staying away from that best. Try get room with view of river or facing campus."
