My husband and I have stayed at this B&B for three years in a row while attending the True/False Film Festival and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves each and every time. All three times, we stayed for 2-3 nights. The Balcony Room is always cozy, clean, and stocked with everything we need, including soft bath robes and extra bed pillows. The... More

I stayed at the University Avenue Bed and Breakfast on 10 nights. Very clean and confortable rooms. Very well located, close to the university and the city center. The owners Brian and Kathy are lovely and make the place very relaxing. The breakfast is delicious and different every morning over 10 days. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast!

My sister and I stayed here for an overnight "get-away" and enjoyed it. The location is perfect for exploring the U of Missouri campus. Several nice restaurants are also close by. Breakfast was fresh and good, rooms were comfortable (we had the Blue Room and the Balcony Room) and the deck was perfect for talking. We enjoyed our time there;... More

This was my first time staying at a B&B in Columbia. I would recommend University Avenue Bed and Breakfast as a great alternative to hotels. It's especially convenient if you're spending time downtown or on campus; both are easy walks from here. It's easy to get anywhere in town from here by car. Pros: Great location near campus -- I...

We stayed at the University B&B when we attended a recent winter wedding. Though we didn't realize it, since we booked it online, the B&B was across the street from the college. HOWEVER- it turned out just fine! They had an off-street parking lot (rare in college areas) so our vehicle felt safe; we didn't have any problems with noise... More

I grew up in the area and wanted to bring my husband to town for a brief visit. This home is close enough to the downtown area/MU campus that you won't have to drive anywhere. The owners are welcoming, helpful, gracious, good cooks, and just the right amount of conversationalists. The homemade soaps are wonderful, too. We stayed in the... More

Walking distance to campus and restaurants - and hosts provided restaurant suggestions. Parking (and snow shoveling!) a bonus. Delicious breakfasts. Comfortable bed with extra blankets, pillows, and space heater provided. Movie selections appreciated. Water and soda down the hall. Loved the hot water/tea/chocolate available at night and actually all during a big snow storm. Lots of windows and sunshine. Really... More

And the next night, even though my wife was with us, we were snowed in and had to find a place. Both days Brian and his wife were there for us. With both discounted prices, and unearned extras...
