I'm pretty sure most of the reviews here are requested by the hotel or its sister property. It's basically a Super 8 near the University, so don't get your hopes up. A Super 8, however, does usually clean your room by 5 p.m., so that's a plus.

We were looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend a few hour before departing for our cruise. The service we received was impeccable. Jendiah and Dany went out if their way to make our family stay impeccable. I left a pair of Prada sunglasses at the desk and within minutes they were promptly returned. They scheduled town cars and shuttles,... More

We have been here fof 3 nights if you want to be away from the craziness of the city this is the place. I loved our stay here it is quiet but you have the option to take the free shuttle which we did take advantage of the lady that was driving was so friendly and took time to show... More

Came down to Seatle to take in some of the sights for a quick overnighter. My daughter and I came down during the week in Feb. during our new family day holiday in BC Canada. It was very easy to find and we were happy that the inn offered free parking. We chose the Inn as we were going to... More

We didn't want to afford the $500+/night hotels in the downtown area and we were glad we found the University Inn. When we wanted to go downtown a free (tips are welcomed) shuttle was available on the hour, but we also liked the university area with lots of shops, restaurants, and my teen daughters liked all the young people running...

Loved it. Loved it! I know a free washer/dryer is a small thing, but come on! Can you come up with another place that will do that for you? They sell you a little bag of soap for $1, also cool, and for a traveler who has been on the road for six days, this was huge. And, they had... More

We stayed at the University Inn recently and it was overall a good experience. The pool was nice, and the staff were excellent. The hotel is also neat and tidy. The rooms are a bit small, and the bathrooms are sort of cramped. The shower water handle has no hot/cold nomenclature on it nor does it say "pull out" for... More

I'll start with the positives, or rather the one positive. The front desk staff was very helpful, and when I had to shorten my stay by one night, they were kind enough not to charge me for the last night of my reservation. (I had already stayed two nights.) And I guess I could say that I felt my room... More

First of all, the friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff are definitely 5 stars! They arranged the car service for me among other things. BTW, the car service that they use (Ferris?) was great - friendly and reliable. I visit Seattle every summer, and I usually stay at Watertown when going to the U-District. This summer somehow the price... More

The shuttle service is very, very limited, the shuttle services multiple hotels and has only 13 seats. You must have a reservation for going and another for returning. Going anywhere but downtown can be very, very, very problematic (even going downtown can be as well). You can get the shuttle downtown but cannot get back. You are not aware of... More
