    Expensive Basic Room

    It was fine. Pretty pricey for the size of the room and what you get. Amenities were decent but not spectacular. Breakfast not included. Water in the room is $5. No cups to even drink tap water. They really want to milk you for every cent.

    Lincoln Graduate Hotel- Fun stop along the way.

    Staying on our last leg of our road trip back home. Wanted something fun, as our son’s birthday was during our road trip. We all enjoyed the fun themed room and ambiance at the hotel. Very noisy. I do realize it’s in the city, but the sound is loader than I expected. Great location though. Lots of dinner options within walking distance which we appreciated and took advantage of.

    Don’t do it!

    I thought we were splurging on an interesting 4 star retro hotel but in reality it was an old smelly hotel they put a coat of paint and some retro furnishings in. The air in our room didn’t work, there were huge disgusting stains on my sheets, the extra door lock was broken, the cleaning wasn’t up to par, and they room was musty and faint cigarette smell (probably left from the 90s when you could smoke in there). The did give us a new room which was cooler but had water dripping from the ceiling (yikes what kinda place is this). The redeeming qualities were the lovely lobby, friendly staff and very comfortable beds and pillows. Sorry for the frank review Graduate, but we won’t be back, you need an overhaul.

  • 6.0.Good

    The bathroom was disgusting hair all over the shower was not clean the room itself was very humid even with the ac running. I was never told about paying for parking and as I checked out I was charged 15 dollars a night to park. We were on the 15tb floor and every night there were kids running up and down the hallway beating on doors and nothing was ever done about it probably won’t be staying here again I was very disappointed

    A Fun and Well-Appointed Stay

    A fun and well-appointed stay. The kitschy collegiate decor and thrift store-inspired artwork will make you smile at every turn. Super location within easy walking distance to the Haymarket district and its shops and restaurants. Paid parking is in the garage right next door with entry directly into the hotel.

    The graduate was okay. We stayed in 3 different rooms. Each room had items that need fixed and had to request towels that were actually clean.

    Check-in was quick and friendly. Room was smaller than expected. Room looked clean at first but later found hair around the edge of the tub and something splattered on the walls and night stand in the main room.
