Our visit occurred in early February, 2014. Hotel was quiet, very comfortable king bed, recently updated lobby and room, and the continental breakfast was very much appreciated. We specifically requested a quiet room and were directed to the fourth floor. The price was very reasonable compared to another hotel in close proximity. We would stay there again.

Well located near University and I-5. Pluses: free parking, breakfast included, free shuttle to downtown with reservation, comfortable bed, friendly staff. Minuses: stayed in old wing and leaky toilet dripped and ran continuously, breakfast was mediocre and needed more fresh fruit.

There's an older wing fronting on NE 42nd St. which I would rate, and fair and a newer wing fronting on Roosevelt. Ave. that I'd rate very good. The newer wing is on the south side of the property and is usually rated a "deluxe" room when you make your reservation. These "deluxe rooms facing Roosevelt Ave. are much newer,... More

It's very close to the university, nice spacious rooms, very friendly staff. The breakfast didn't look great, but I never tried it. Very close to a good running trail which takes you to gas works park.

The University Inn is a modestly priced hotel close to UW and the UW medical center. It's a pretty good deal for the price, but we ended up moving hotels. The pros: The room was very clean, comes with complimentary waters, parking, and Tommy Bahama soaps and lotions. The staff was great. They serve a nice buffet breakfast. The cons:... More
