This is not a luxury hotel, but I liked it and would stay there again. It is small and has only a noisy wheel-chair type elevator, but the rooms are a good size with a nice little kitchen and a full-size fridge. The parking lot is never too full and the location next to the interstate is convenient. A laundry room is available and vending machines for drinks. Some food is available for purchase from the front desk. The staff are nice and good coffee is free and available all the time.

First off the room smelled of mold The toilet sink and bath tub did not drain well like not at all . The coffee machine they bragged about didn't even work and the best thing was the fire alarm at 1:30 AM!!!!! Wonderful stay wouldn't ever recomend them to anyone period !!

Hello Warren, We do apologize that you visit with the University Inn was not up to hour standards. If you could reach out to the hotel and speak with me personal that would be great. We would like to make it right with our guest.

My son and I spent a couple of days in Minneapolis and were going to Target Field, the University of Minnesota, and the airport. This was a great location with a private parking lot. Rooms were clean, spacious, and well-appointed. It consisted of a roomy floor plan, large TV, comfortable beds, furniture, desk, and kitchenette. All of this at a value price--a great place for a visit or longer term stay. Kudos to the owners, managers, and staff!
