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.

University Inn offers first class customer service. The front desk staff especially Nadya and Theresa were extremely helpful from reservations, info on bus schedules, where to go for supplies, etc.. Although dated this Inn has a kitchenette, free Wifi, good TV service, a laundry, and acceptable mattresses and bedding. We didn't need a car because the bus stop was right... More

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

I stayed here for a little over a month. Nadiya is amazing! Erin & Stephanie at the front desk are full of info about transportation, eating, attractions, etc etc. The rooms are very clean and Rosa the housekeeper does an amazing job. Everyone made me feel very welcomed. University inn is a very convenient place to stay especially if you... More

Very affordable at less than $100 on NY Eve. Room was clean and well-appointed. Kitchenette was complete and very convenient. We went to a concert at the Varsity Theater and dinner beforehand at the Loring Pasta Bar; even on a cold night it was a comfortable 3 block walk. Would definitely stay there again.

It was suggested that I stay at University Inn due it's convenience to the Masonic Cancer Clinic on Harvard St. It was easy to take the bus to Washington and walk a short distance to the Clinic. I needed a room with a kitchen to be able to cook for myself. I am limited in what I can eat. I... More

University Inn is probably the cheapest place to stay near the University of Minnesota. It has a great location, being right off of I-35 and next to Dinkytown, and if you can get the right directions you can walk across the Stone Arch Bridge into downtown Minneapolis. The hotel itself is pleasant enough - not lovely, but pleasant enough. Romance,... More

I spent the past 3 months staying at University Inn while participating in a research program at the University. For this purpose, University Inn was ideal. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to accommodate special requests. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the kitchenette (full refrigerator, range, and microwave) makes it easy to... More
