My son and I visited the University of Minnesota. The inn is located a few blocks from campus. Everything is witin walking distance. The room was clean, the staff very friendly, very good coffeemachine in the lobby. Parking is free and they even let us park there until after the tour, even though we had checked out already. Nice contemporary... More

Walking distance to campus, convinient bus to light rail. Good coffee and other tasty hot drink are free. Warm and trendy lobby to stay and read and meet with friends. Free printing is also available. Good to stay for work, retreat or family tours

I usually stay at another hotel near the campus, but I thought that it has gotten a bit pricey. I found the University Inn to be reasonably priced and as it turned out was closer to where my daughter lives. The front desk staff was very friendly, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Stayed for the NCAA Women's Hockey Frozen4, and had a fabulous weekend primarily because of University Inn's great location, clean and cozy rooms, and wonderful staff! With easy access off a main downtown thoroughfare (35W north) on the west end of the U of M campus, the hotel and the room was soothingly quiet! Erin was a particular gem with... More

We were in Minneapolis for family visit and U of M visit. This hotel is in the perfect location. Easy to locate and access especially on one way streets. The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Convenient parking near the front entrance. Very nice clean room with kitchenette. Will stay there again.

University inn has helpful and attentive employees. Comfortable rooms, working out area, laundry room, entrance hall with coffee machine, parking lot and WiFi. Clean towels and sheets! Neat bathrooms. Prepare your own meals if want so. There is a small kitchen in each room with fridge and microwave. Very good localization.

In Minneapolis for a meeting at the University of Minnesota and to meet friends in NE Minneapolis. Great location, friendly staff and a clean comfortable room. Was only there one night, but the kitchenette would be great for a longer stay. Will definitely be back.

I stayed for only one night, but was so glad I chose this place. The price came up less than the Days Inn and I figured it was probably a nicer place. I was impressed with the decor, quite modern and clean. The front desk attendant was friendly and informative. The front doors lock after 5 and you must use... More
