    Cute but not the most dog friendly

    The rooms are cute, quiet and the bed is comfortable. The pet fee is super reasonable at $25. However, the lot the building is on is very limited in size. The building is set on a corner, no parking (you have to valet with them also $25). They also don’t have any easy way to let your dog out for bathroom breaks. The bar associated with this place is also lame with horrible outdoor seating that overlooks the dumpster.

    Nice Place

    Stumbled upon the Graduate and loved it. Quiet, clean and comfortable. The best night sleep I've had on the road in a long time. Adjacent to campus but still chill.

    Fab design.

    We’ve stayed many hotels with our dogs and it has often felt like they where doing us a favor staying at their basic no frills hotel. The Graduate is a well designed treat for the eyes. No detail was left out and the staff was friendly and welcoming. 5 bones +

    Adorable hotel, but maybe not the best for pets

    The hotel is very conveniently located and clean, however there is no grassy area for pets. There are no quest rooms on the first floor, which means pets must be comfortable with the elevator. If would definitely stay again if I was traveling without pets.
