This establishment does not deserve to call itelf a B&B - the "breakfast" is the same continental fare you'd find at any Econo Lodge. Actually, it's worse because the croissants are stale, and there are no bagels, toast, etc. Seemingly the proprieters of the University Inn thought owning a Bed and Breakfast would be a great way to make a quick buck, and have put as little effort into the venture as possible. The room we were assigned (the Dean's Quarters) has the exact same style and feel as staying in your Grandmother's guest room, only with a slightly larger bathroom. Absolutely no thought was put into the decor (cheap linens, stuffed animals on the beds, hideously out-of-date furniture) and the owners simply threw in the cheapest items they could find. The room was clean however, so that was not a problem. Breakfast was laughable. There was a small fridge in the room (which is always nice in hotel rooms, so I will give them that) that contained, upon arrival, a flask of orange juice (which tasted terrible) and two plates of sliced oranges and grapefruit. On a TV tray next to the bed were the abovementioned stale croissants and two muffins of varying size (the muffins tasted fine, thankfully). Apparently it would be far too much trouble for the owners of this place to prepare breakfast themselves or even so much as deliver it in the mornings, so they simply leave it for you a day ahead of time and have a coffee maker in the hallway that is set to brew at a pre-determined time every morning. This is not what I am expecting when I stay in a Bed and Breakfast. Incidentally, we never so much as saw the owners the entire weekend we stayed there, when generally at a B&B the proprieters won't leave you alone. Also, the room was freezing cold at all hours of the day with no way to control the heat. The only really saving grace of the University Inn is that it is literally across the street from UC Davis and within walking distance to the downtown area. Oh, and it has DirecTV. Which you can watch on the 12 inch television.
