The bed was so hard, we did not sleep at all. I would never recommend The Varsity Inn.

Clean, comfortable & safe
I’ve stayed in this hotel on several occasions. Overall it’s a good place to stay. Beds were very comfortable. My rooms were always clean. And I was not intimidated by the area and felt very safe during my stays. Forewarning though if you plan to use the Hospital discount. After a late night with my son, who is a patient at Dodd Rehab Hospital, I attempted to get a room there at about 1am on a Saturday morning and was told by the night attendant that the hospital discount was not accepted during the weekends and was expected to pay full price despite the fact that the desk attendant the previous night told me it was.
