We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Seattle. We had wanted to stay downtown, but because of the U.S. Open, hotel costs everywhere were higher than normal. We ended up not getting to the hotel until almost 1am our first night (we stayed longer than expected in Olympic National Park, and had to wait until 11:30 for the ferry).... More

My friend booked this trip, I was just happy there was a pool. The hotel was tidy and clean, the rooms had air conditioning (it was a very hot weekend), and there was a fridge and coffee in the room. There is a small outdoor pool, but it was never crowded. We went to use it and got the loungers... More

The location is great and the beds are amazing. I loved the duvets! Book directly for the best deals. They even leave a card in the room for a discount for your next visit. Friendly staff and a decent continental breakfast.

We've stayed at the Inn every year when my husband comes to UofW for his annual Dr. visits. This year, the Inn has implemented a new bedding feature - each bed had two lightweight twin duvets -- an individual duvet for each guest that is washed every time there is a guest change-over. We thought that was really cool! The... More

We were here for sight-seeing in Seattle. Downtown hotels were over $300 per night, so we chose this hotel which had a free shuttle to downtown that you must reserve in advance. We still paid $220 per night, and I am not sure why. We stayed in a deluxe 2 queen room. Deluxe means a mini fridge and microwave. Rooms... More

The staff is very friendly. Shuttle almost everywhere downtown. Rooms are very cleanand well equiped. Free Wi Fi all over the hotel. If you deal with the Washington Univ. it is the ultimate place to stay. staying downtown Seattle do not need more than this. Nearby you have studential restaurants and cafe so, enjoyable.We'll come back

I was very happy with this hotel, clean clean clean. Pet friendly with no odors stains. Staff was friendly, helpful (someone actually loaded our 5 bags on cart and actually put them in our room) with a smile. A college town and very safe!

I don't think one could ask for a better place to spend a couple of days before hopping on a cruise to Alaska. The rooms have a refrigerator and a coffee maker. Located close to University and The Avenue. Also close to the University Book Store and Trader Joes! The best for last, Portage Bay is just downstairs. We didn't... More

First recommended to me years ago, whenever I visit the UW campus I stay here. It's a lovely, easy walk to the quad. The inn's staff is friendly and eager to be helpful. Rooms are always spotless, lines clean, water's hot and the free breakfast starts the day smoothly.
