We came down for a couple day so my daughter could visit University of Washington. The staff was very friendly and the service was great. They were flexible as we needed a late checkout. Breakfast was fine with a good selection. I would stay here again.

Three day stay. Super place to stay. Simple renovated property. The location is great, you can get anywhere via a bike or their shuttle or...walking even. Although it is in the University district, I found it calm and quiet at night. My room was clean, very comfy beds. The staff is very helpful as well. I used their bike several... More

I've traveled around the world and stayed in 5-star hotels and every star level under that. Some real gems and some that can be called horrific. This hotel is unique. There are five things that I look for and this hotel has it ALL. That's written in all caps because it is rare, very rare even for the 5-star properties.... More

After living in Seattle for over a decade, my husband and I were looking forward to staying at the University Inn for a visit. I passed it almost daily and always thought it'd be a cute place to stay. When taking a shower the water was lukewarm, until the room next door turned on his/her shower. Then the shower alternated...

We stayed for 2 days at the hotel during the kid's spring break. The hotel offered free shuttle to downtown but you have to make reservations in advance, so plan ahead. Hotel is a few walkable block to the University of Washington. Because the hotel is so close to the university there are a lot of restaurants nearby all within... More

We decided to stay 2 nights here when visiting Seattle because of the reviews. Its a nice hotel close to UW. Room was comfortable and clean. They had bikes to use, which my son did use. Parking was free and adequate, although tight. Breakfast was Continental, which is not what we would expect from a hotel like this. Just breads,... More

First and foremost the staff was wonderful. We needed to amend our reservation and Lacy and staff made the changes with no problem. WE even checked out for a couple of days and then came back for 2 more days. Hotel/rooms very clean, beds were awesome! Grateful for the free parking and Wifi, continental breakfast.

University of Washington is a short walk away, very convenient. The hotel was cute and clean. We were disappointed that the pool and whirlpool were out of commission. The little breakfast place two doors down, Portage Bay, has the best breakfast I've had in a long time.

We have stayed here a few times over the years. They recently upgraded the bedding, which is quite nice. The location is convenient in the U district, lots of food options around. Limited free parking, free internet, breakfast, all make this a great place at usually very decent prices for Seattle. It is not too far to any neighborhood from... More

The bed we had was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There is an outdoor pool (not available in early March, when we stayed there). Guests of the Inn... More
