I made my online reservation with the University Inn for the wrong day! When I arrived, the hotel was booked full. Rather than just tell me the hotel was full and it was my mistake, they converted a room used for internal purposes into a guest room and saved our weekend! I owe them many thanks! I have never experienced... More

Location, location, location! We stayed here for a family weekend (2 adults/2 children) and wanted a hotel within walking distance of restaurants and museums. The room was spacious, light-filled and clean with a kitchenette where we could cook meals and store food in the full-size refrigerator. Staff was friendly and helpful. My husband and I both work remotely, and the... More

Historic and convenient location. We stayed for two days while attending the NCAA swimming and diving championships. Nice, clean kitchenette room. Easy access to University of Minnesota, 35W and I-94.

Clean and affordable. Great location for visiting the cities. Very easy access to the interstate. Walking distance to great food and several bars. (mostly younger people in the bars) I stayed two nights but would have been comfortable staying longer because of the kitchenette.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting our daughter at the University of Minnesota. Easy parking and extremely close to campus (10 minutes slowly to Dinkytown). Our room had a kitchen and was well stocked if one wished to cook. Not too noisy although 30 seconds from 35W. Be sure to hang the tag asking for your room to... More

PROS: Great location for the concert we were going to. It was just a 10 minute walk to the venue. There was free parking which was appreciated. CONS: There was a orangish-red w/green moldy/mildew growing up the shower curtain and shower head (gross). No elevator which was difficult w/my broken leg to say the least. We waited about 10 minutes... More

We stayed here for Parents Weekend at the U of M and really loved how close it was to campus. The room was clean and good sized with a kitchenette with microwave and full-sized fridge. At the time of our stay there was no breakfast offered so having a kitchen was a plus. This is a "no frills" place. There... More

I stayed at this hotel while on a week long work trip, and was very happy with the hotel. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but it had very clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff. It is in a very convenient location - just off the interstate, but also in a wonderful little neighborhood. There are many... More

I chose this hotel (they look more like they were once a dorm), because it was close to the clinic's. no elevator so don't go there if handicapped doing steps. I thought someone was vacuuming late at night ...multiple times but then realized the loud suction sound must have been someone who had flushed the toilet in the next room.... More

We stayed here not quite sure what to expect. The venue is easy enough to get to coming from the east on 94W, although their front sign is pretty easy to miss. Although the area is busy, it's not too crazy for driving around the University. After a hiccup with their check-in system, we got into the rooms. Although they... More
