My wife and I stayed here one night and recently had friends from Denmark stay here twice. We all enjoyed the Inn. The staff is great--helpful, courteous, friendly. The rooms have two fine queen beds in them, along with a complete kitchenette which we did not use, but would be great for a longer stay. These rooms were extremely quiet... More

We have a lot of family in Minnesota. We were attending a bridal shower for my niece and my daughter booked the University Inn. What a pleasant surprise. A nicely equipped kitchen with a large refrigerator, toaster, microwave, and cooking surface. The hotel was very clean and comfortable! We would definitely stay there again!

We were in Minneapolis for a baseball game and concert at First Avenue, and our daughter is a UM student. Very conveniently located hotel with simple, clean rooms, free parking, easy access to University and Downtown, nice staff, free coffee, and all at a bargain price! Glad we found it!

Friendly and helpful staff; clean room; excellent location; free parking. I would stay there again if I was in the Twin Cities. Walking across the bridges to downtown Minneapolis was a great experience. Beautiful!

Very comfortable room. Very Pleasant staff. We were in town for a show at the Northrop Auditorium. The show turned out to be a bust so we headed back to the hotel and had an enjoyable time in the room. Everyone was comfortable, plenty of comfortable chairs. Kept our refreshment cool in the large refrig. Great Place!!

Hi 19DebM61, Thanks for reviewing our hotel! It's always nice to hear that our guests have enjoyed themselves while staying here - although I'm sorry to hear that the showed you traveled to see was disappointing. There are some really great offerings at Northrop throughout the year, hopefully the next show you see will be great! We'll see you then!... More

the hotel is clean, and staff is friendly, the small kitchen is good for cooking dinner, so you can save some money from dinning out. They also can provide a pack and play crib for your baby for free. But there is some water leaks out from the bathroom after we take the shower, and the one of the stove... More

Hi ELKW, Thank you for taking time to review our hotel.

We've stayed here a couple of times! Free parking, good sized rooms with frig, microwave, sink, toaster, coffee maker and a few dishes\utensils to use. Ask for the parent of a U of MN student price! Close to Dinkytown, campus, I-35 and walkable to athletic events!

The place is nice, the room clean and has all that one can expect. Clearly there are several beneficial aspects, first and foremost the very friendly and supportive staff at the front desk - they turned out to be very helpful.
