We stayed here during my son's UW orientation. This hotel is very clean and comfortable. They have very friendly staff who went out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is walking distance to campus, which is was great for our visit. They also have a shuttle, so we were able to spend some time in downtown Seattle.... More

The hotel is well located for the u- district and close to public transport links for downtown. The room was basic ( coffee, tea making facilities; no fridge or microwave; iron) but there were laundry facilities in house. The staff are very friendly and this is the best bit for the hotel.

Our second stay at the Inn, this time with our pet dog. With a fee of $20 per night for a pet is a little expensive, but worth it for having the pet stay in air conditioned room during extremely hot days is more than worth it. They do have a pet policy which should be read before booking, but... More

My daughter was checking out the Univ of Washington and needed some place close by. The hotel was perfect. Walking distance to the university. Rooms were nicely furnished and quiet. Parking was free and there were plenty of spots. Three blocks over towards the university there are a variety of restaurants. It is only a few blocks off I-5 and... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Deluxe King room was comfortable and quiet. Free bicycle rental is very convenient, and they provide a helmet and lock. The Burke-Gilman Trail runs just south of the hotel, allowing easy access to University Village, Gas Works Park, and Ballard. All the front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Jediah helped me on several occasions, including... More

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at the University Inn. We stayed in the newer wing and found everything quite satisfactory. The bed was comfy, the room was a good size, and the staff very helpful. We had the breakfast one morning and it was fine, but we would really recommend the brekkie at Portage Bay Cafe! It... More

My husband and I were in Seattle to do a 2 day bike ride to Portland. There are 12,000 riders who do this ride so the area around the University of Washington was quite busy. I have to say, the University Inn did a fantastic job of getting everyone in our party of 12 checked-in with no complications at all.... More

What an awesome change from the chains. A greeting from the staff everyday of my four night stay. My room was cleaned each afternoon as if I had just checked in, the lobby and hall ways are just as tidy. I never had a question enter my mind as far as bed linens.

We stayed here for UW freshman A & O. It is very convenient location, walking distance to the campus and lots of cafe and restaurants nearby. The hotel has free shuttles to downtown, and university, etc. The staff were very friendly, we left our jackets in the hotel. Maria the manager of housekeeper dept mailed them to me right away.
