The staff is friendly and the location can't be beat if you are needing to do anything on the UConn campus. My room was clean and comfortable, but all the fixtures, decor, and furniture are a bit dated.

The True Blue Tavern is one of the best things about the Hale. The bartenders are great. Attentive, friendly. They make you feel like family. Kacie always seems to remember my favorite drink and has it ready in a flash and that's important. Other bars make you wait for what seems like forever. Kacie is why I go there. I... More

Visited the blue oak tavern at the Nathan hale inn at the University of Connect. Kacie is a rock star! She was so friendly and attentive. I find that customer service had gone by the wayside but Kacie has renewed my faith that it still exists. Will definitely be visiting the tavern again

While I was not a guest of the hotel, I am local to the area and frequent the True Blue Tavern often. I've tried all of the other area venues but this one can't be beat!

Kacie made me an excellent dirty vodka martini. The fish tacos rocked too. It's a nice place, feels like a sports bar though the food is restaurant-like in its quality. I highly recommend it for a casual drink, a quick snack, or a full-on meal. Ask for the food specials before you order, they can be awesome.

We have a son at Uconn and the convenience of being right on campus is great especially after a 4 hour drive. I will admit it's pricey for an average feeling hotel and I had hoped that breakfast would be included. Although it wasn't included, I was given 20% off to the Blue Oak by a very nice young lady...
