We'd never been to Seattle before, so were reliant on a Lonely Planet guide when looking for somewhere to stay. This place got a mention and we got a decent price so thought we'd give it a go. Although it's not in the heart of downtown, it's in a lively area with a lot of students around. The staff were... More

Needed a place to stay for an unexpected trip to visit my daughter. University Inn is conveniently located, easily accessible, very accommodating, professional staff, quality room. Excellent all the way around. They even found my lost watch and called to confirm they had it.

Given the Hotels around the university area, this was very well priced compared to the others, but very clean and friendly. Upon arrival, I was immediately upgraded to the south wing since construction was ongoing on the other side. The room was ample in size, very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The hot water was almost immediate and hot!... More

This place was great. I was in town with my dog, and University Inn was recommended by the vet's office we were visiting. There was a welcome basket for my dog, which I though was cute. The room was nice and clean. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here. Great deal for the price.

The beds are very comfortable and the free breakfast is yummy. I love that that the hotel is walking distance to the University of Washington. The front desk employees are very knowledgeable with ideas of what to see and where to go.

The University Inn is a relatively simple place, with a few touches that make it a little more distinctive. The lobby is small but furnished in mid-century style. The free breakfast (which is quite limited) is served there. A more elaborate restaurant is available just and the end end of the block. The rooms are a little small, but not... More

Located in the University District a short walk from UW and on several bus lines connecting to Seattle area attractions, this hotel is a good spot for conference goers, visiting parents and people exploring the Seattle area. Rooms are clean, quiet and nice. Not fancy, but comfy with European style bedding, coffee maker, small refrigerator and a microwave. Free breakfast... More

Hello jpora, Thank you for the nice things you had to say about the hotel and our rooms! We love being able to offer a complimentary continental breakfast, but recommend Portage Bay at every opportunity as well; the Eggs Benedict is incredible and my favorite!

I have patronized this hotel for years. Initially to simply save money and have an easy access to places I had to visit. But now that there are few more comparable places around I am unable to "free" myself from this particular Inn due to the way I am being treated there. My room often upgraded, great beds, linens, robes,... More
