Dear Daivd, It is unfortunate that you felt our hotel is dingy, dark and has not been updated in decades. We strive to provide a clean, friendly, and welcoming environment. Our guests have told us that they found our hotel to be clean, comfortable, spacious and in immaculate condition. Our goal here at the BEST WESTERN University Inn is to provide every guest with superior service, from a friendly and warm greeting that our staff offers to each guest as they walk through our front door, to the polite and pleasant manner with which our staff answers phone calls and checks guests in and out. We offer each guest a sincere “thank you and safe travels” as they leave to go on their way. Our friendly housekeeping staff does a great job at keeping our guestrooms and the hotel, clean and fresh. I do thank you for providing us with your distinct perception of the hotel and the service that you received during your most recent stay. It does allow us to take stock in our strengths and identify any perceived weakness.
