When my son was attending the University of Washington, we started staying at the University Inn when we came to visit him. And now we just always stay there when we are in Seattle. It is a small hotel with very friendly people in a great location close to the university and the Burke-Gilman trail. The complementary breakfast is terrific,... More

This was such a cute little inn and the location, right on the perimeter of UW, was fantastic -- totally within walking distance of the residence halls on the west side of campus. The staff was super friendly and always willing to help with giving directions. The rooms were spacious, beautifully clean, and cheery. The little touches -- like the... More

We chose this hotel based on the proximity to UW and because they offer free shuttle service to the University, among other destinations. We were extremely happy with our choice. We reserved the shuttle at check in and were promptly picked up at the requested time in a very nice (& new) shuttle bus. We chose to walk back from... More

I came here after a friend recommended it and was really disappointed. My room was small and had a view of the dumpster and cars driving down the hill, so the drapes stayed closed. The bathroom was small and the toilet ran the whole time even though I asked for it to be checked. There was no ice machine near... More

This incredible value in Urban Seattle puts you right in the heart of Washington University with easy access to all points north and south. Every day at 3:00 PM, fresh cupcakes come out to join the delicious house-brew coffee. Breakfast is included along with WiFi. After Memorial Day the outside pool is also open for quests to relax in.

Nice and clean room, excellent service! The stuff were very friendly and there were "well come cup cake and coffee" by the lobby. Their hospitality was very nice. The free parking was plus. The location is within blocks of UW, so easy access to down town Seattle.

The University Inn is not downtown and this is both an advantage and a problem. It's an advantage in that Seattle has a rather dead downtown after 6:00. The University area is very lively after dark with a lot of restaurants, bars and activity going on. The problem is it's not downtown and you have to get there. The hotel... More

We recently stayed at the University Inn Seattle for one night because we visited UW with our daughter. Our room was in what appeared to be a relatively new wing of the hotel. The three of us found the room very spacious, clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. It came with a microwave and a Keurig coffee maker. The hotel also... More

University Inn is a great basic hotel for the price, and perfect for touring nearby UW. It is clean and modern, and our room was comfortably furnished, with everything in good working order. The location is within blocks of UW and the cafes and restaurants surrounding the campus West end, but also is convenient to the freeway and an easy... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting University of Washington and Seattle University with our son. Really nice hotel that was convenient to both University of Washington and to Seattle University as well as to downtown Portland. We stayed in what I think was called the "West Wing". Our room appeared to be newly updated and stylish. The beds, however,... More
