Clean hotel which has been updated. Rooms were spacious and included a mini kitchen which for us worked great as we didn't have to eat out 3 meals a day. Close enough that we walked back and forth from the UM campus where my granddaughter was in a swim meet. (about a mile which some might find too far to... More

Needed a place to stay in Minneapolis for the week for a conference located near Univ. of MN and the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory. This Inn is nicely situated on a corner where several bus lines stop. For those traveling by air, this is convenient to take the train to a bus to get to the inn from the airport.... More

Hello Juan, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your business! I want to assure you that we didn't charge you $50 extra for anything, let alone "checking out 6 minutes after 11". That $50 "charge" you're seeing is a temporary hold (called an "Authorization") we put on your credit card when you checked in. We hold these... More

Clean, quiet, very convenient with friendly service. I very much enjoyed my stay. The only thing is that there is no elevator, so when traveling with lots of luggage, you may want to request a room on the first floor.

My daughter and I stayed at University Inn while attending a workshop at the university. It was quiet, clean and within walking distance. The room is small, but adequate. The workout room was not the best. The free coffee was excellent. The kitchenette was perfect and there are grocery stores nearby. Most of the guests were older, but that may... More

We had a room with a kitchenette and even though it was quite small it met our needs quite well. The staff was very friendly and helpful! It was close to the University of Minnesota athletic facilities where we participated in the National Senior Olympics. Bus 2 picked us up right on the corner. Free off-street parking.
