I recently stayed here for three nights during a visit to a doctor at the University of Minnesota. Staff friendly and helpful. No elevator but received assistance from staff. Minor maintenance issues were quickly taken care of. Kitchen a plus. Would recommend.

We stayed at the U. Inn for 1 week of doctor's visits for our daughter. Unable to obtain admittance to the Ronald McDonald House and having been priced out of the newly remodeled hotel we usually stay at, the U. Inn was perfect for us. Super location, very convenient to both the East and West banks, right on the highway... More

We were well treated and informed by the staff member on arrival and during our one night stay. Our room was clean and ready. I would definitely stay there again as a convenient location on the campus.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel for one night mid-week because he had a movie premiere down at St. Anthony Main Theatre - which is a mile away. I called University Inn - they were just close enough to downtown that it made sense. It was clean, modern, and honestly, all we really needed. The front desk clerk... More

Stayed here one night recently. Very convenient to city center. Lots of activity outside from the local frat boys. No elevator inside, which usually wouldn't be a problem but I had two VERY heavy bags to lug upstairs. Room was OK. I thought the bed was a bit too firm but I always prefer the softer varieties. Wasn't a bad... More

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.
