When I arrived the desk staff was quick to help me figure out the layout of the neighborhood so I could walk or drive to the University area, where I chose to eat that first night. The next day I indicated I wished to stay off the highway to get to the Guthrie Theatre, so they went online to print... More

Hello drrons47, Thanks so much for reviewing our hotel!

Very comfortable accomodations, spacious room, excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. Kitchenette useful, although really has only minimal equipment. Our only complaint was that the bathroom fan is always on when the bathrrom light is on - noisy and unnecessary.

Hello GHeimpel, Thank you so much for taking reviewing us on TripAdvisor, I'm glad you found our rooms comfortable and it's always nice to hear that the staff is friendly! I agree with you that the bathroom fan is unnecessarily loud, and replacing the fans with much quieter models in on our renovation to-do list for this year. Thanks again... More

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
