Older motel/hotel (doors open to the outside) but it's that old 60s/70s sturdy concrete wall hotel you remember traveling with your parents. It HAS been updated though, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. What surprised me about this hotel was two things 1) the people (more on that) and 2) quiet, it was really, really, really quiet.
First of all I screwed up, lesson here for the rest of you. If you book through a 3rd party it will most likely book you in a smoking room, you'll need to call the desk at the hotel to confirm if you want a non-smoking room when you make your reservation. The people here are extremely nice from the desk staff, manager, morning breakfast folks to the maintenance guys (we had a small issue they corrected with a smile). The breakfast was excellent given what you pay for this place, even had an afternoon happy hour with nice looking snacks. Great location for gameday only a few minute ride to the campus and stadium.
All in all, I would definitely book here again (careful to book the correct room this time).
Two (very minor complaints), the housekeepers knocked very early saw we were still there and then never returned - it would've been nice to get some fresh towels. Also, the internet was pretty much useless, like open a web page and then go make a sandwich slow, so be prepared to use a hotspot if you want internet access. less
