“Great extra amenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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 check-out, and he was friendly and efficient.

Free shuttle bus to Westlake was on-time and very handy.

I would stay here again.

Hi Brendan901,

It sounds like you got to know the area and do quite a bit of exploring while you were here! So glad that you found our bicycles and shuttle helpful to get around! Jediah is a fantastic and we're very lucky to have him as part of the Pineapple team!
Thank you for sharing with the TripAdvisor readers and we hope to welcome you back soon!

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 is next door and excellent if you can afford it.
We really enjoyed the location and felt that overall this hotel was excellent value!

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. They were polite and competent and eager to help us out. The rooms were big - we had a small suite with a king bed, sofa, frig, microwave, TV, etc. The air conditioner worked very well which was nice since Seattle was experiencing ultra warm temps that weekend. They had nice shampoos and conditioners in the bath and a sink inside and outside the bathroom. I've never seen both before in a hotel room. Extra bonus - since most of the people staying at the hotel were doing the ride, the hotel opened breakfast at 5:00 am instead of their normal time just to accommodate us. That was above a beyond a nice thing to do.
If I'm ever in Seattle and want to stay near the University, this is the first place I'll make a reservation.

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. The furniture in the room is fairly comfortable as well. Walking distance for lots of restaurants down on university.
On the down side, parking is a little tight and the breakfast buffet could be expanded with more selections but that will not stop me from coming back.
As a professional traveler I highly recommend the university inn.

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.

What a great place to stay right in Seattle. They offer free shuttle service downtown or to University Mall and if you're inclined to walk it's an easy walk to the university and to the mall. The room was beautiful, the amenities are great, and the staff is very friendly. We will definitely stay here again!
