PHOENIX -

Close to 100 students who were expecting to move into Arizona State University's downtown dormitory this fall are in for a surprise -- they may end up staying at a Phoenix hotel instead.

Morgan, an ASU nutrition major was moving into her new dorm Friday afternoon.

"In from the Tempe campus, not many newer dorms, so it's better than what I am used to," she said.

Morgan moved into Taylor Place, ASU's downtown campus dorm -- and for the first time since it opened in 2008, Taylor Place is full.

"I applied right when it opened, so I was ready to go," she said.

Morgan is one of the lucky ones.  It turns out Taylor Place is a little too full.  Somehow, ASU managed to overbook the dorm by about 120 students.

"I heard about that, it's pretty crazy.  I'm pretty luck to have a room," she said.

In a written statement from ASU, the school said it's whittled that number down to less than 90 by Friday afternoon and it still guarantees housing in Sun Devil Country to all 900 freshman who requested a room at Taylor Place.

But those without a room will have to stay at the nearby Westin Hotel -- still close to ASU's downtown campus, but they'll probably have to move again once the university finds more permanent housing back at Taylor Place again.

Actually, those students who end up at the Westin may be the lucky ones.

ASU says students staying at the hotel will have full use of everything the hotel has to offer, including maid service.
