This is the second time I've stayed at the University Inn. The staff are really friendly and energetic and helpful, just super! The rooms are clean and simple and things work well. The breakfast is free and it's pretty good, not fantastic but definitely gets the job done. The parking is FREE. The location is close to UW, which makes... More

The University Inn was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were great, the continental breakfast was fine, and the locations, albeit a bit out of the City Center, was fine and excellent if you are at the University. The shuttle was great. The best part of the hotel was the amazing front desk staff. EVERYONE WAS GREAT. They did not just... More

It was my experience with the University Inn AFTER I stayed there that bumped this review from a 4 to a 5. This is a smallish hotel in a convenient part of Seattle if you need to be near the UW or you have a car. Free parking is always nice in Seattle and the spaces were plenty big. It's... More

University Inn is an affordable alternative to expensive hotels in downtown Seattle. Located near the University of Washington (hence the name), it was just a short shuttle ride to all the Emerald City attractions. The hotel offers a free shuttle to a number of popular destinations in the city.

We've chosen this area due to its proximity to downtown Seattle. Price was still relatively high but the neighborhood was excellent (students atmosphere) and the overall service was satisfactory with emphasis on the very cosy parking. Room was nice and so was breakfast.

Definitely overpriced for a very small room with no bathtub (just shower). It was a convenient location for attending an event on the campus. A few nicer features such as good linen and robes. Minimal service - didn't even ask if we enjoyed our stay!

Been here to visit my friend, easy to access downtown area with bus. Great room with all basic stuff. Free breakfast with various selections, nice windows to look out when eating. Clean, quite room with helpful front desk staff. Will recommend anyone to here.

We selected the University Inn for its location relative to the Univ of Washington campus and price. It's important to note that every hotel/motel in the Seattle area is expensive ($$$+) during the summer. The University Inn had the most competitive rate. The location was about 5 blocks from a main campus entry and about 3 blocks from the west... More
