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

I'll start by saying the staff at all the Pineapple Properties has always been fabulous. The same for this stay. I had to change a reservation due to a flight cancellation and that went smoothly. Really appreciate the dog goodie bag for my service dog. The downside for this visit was the smell. This is the first time I stayed... More

The best thing about University Inn is the staff. When we checked in, the guy who served us was cleaning a big pile of pens with disinfectant wipes. That's right; he was disinfecting a pile of guest pens! As card-carrying germaphobes we thought to ourselves 'Oh, we're gonna like this place.' My wife and I stayed in room 207 for... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel due to it's proximity to family and the city. The room was comfortable and clean, but nothing special. It was nice to have a fridge and mircrowave for leftovers and drinks. The bed was comfortable and I slept through the night both nights (not usual for me at a hotel). Our visit... More

We stayed at this hotel for the UCLA vs UW football game in November. It was fantastic! Rooms are comfortable and trendy. Location is excellent-20 minute walk to the stadium. Included breakfast was good. Staff friendly and extremely helpful. They have a free shuttle for several locations. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a nice time here. Provided breakfast is pretty sparse. Room was clean, beds were adequate. Good location for visiting friends. Would probably stay again. A hot tub or a 4 season pool would be fun for the family.

The University in is located only a few blocks from the UW campus. Our visit was to take my grandson for a campus tour, pending his application there. The proximity to the UW made it a great choice.

Friendly service, comfortable beds, clean rooms, good value What more can you want for a weekend escape?! 2 night stay in a Deluxe room (microwave, refrigerator, and a bigger bathroom) for a UW football game. 15 minute walk through the campus to the stadium; 10 minute drive (or free shuttle ride) to Seattle center (Space Needle, EMP, Chihuly).
