We love staying at the University Inn, and having done so more than a few times, they recognize our repeat business and we are greeted now each time with a hand-written note in the room along with a special treat to say "thank you!" Definitely a sign that they are in the hospitality business, not just providing a place to... More

I just loved this place. Professional and modern without the sterility of many hotels--not at all an easy balance to strike. Cute and quirky yet with all the amenities, super clean, comfortable, wonderful employees. This is my first Trip Advisor review -- this place was just really worth noting.

I love this hotel - iPros: t's amazing location, attentive staff and amenities. I do love that they have clean linens each time - - that's what keeps me coming back Cons: The parking should be included though - paying 10$ a day really isn't cool -

We spent the weekend here to be near the University of Washington. My wife is an Alumni and I selected this hotel so she could return to her 'old stomping grounds' and give me a tour of it and the surrounding area she so fondly remembers. The Inn is only a couple of blocks from the campus and an easy... More

The only reason they did not get a 5 rating is: no PAC-12 network (and we are in the university district) and no Root Sports (mariners). Missed both games that night...I also don't think it is clearly marked. The angle street we came in on, we could not identify the hotel. They should mark the bottom parking entry as 'University...

First off, the University Inn is currently experiencing street construction, so although it is temporary and no fault of the University Inn, please be advised. That being said, the University Inn is a great hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the rooms are clean and well maintained. Our family has stayed at either the University Inn or the...

Loved this hotel! They've thought of everything. The front desk was friendly and I felt safe at the property. I wish it was closer to downtown, but they provide a FREE shuttle. You can't beat that considering how much taxis can add up to. I was so impressed that after we checked out, we were allowed to keep our luggage... More

We stay here once a year and feel at home each time. The water and umbrella in room are always appreciated as are the refreshments in the lobby. We have always had available parking and some of us can walk to the stadium for football games. This time we tried the pool and our nephew really enjoyed it.

Towels,duvet covers and all amenities top notch but, because hotel is dated, some things like soundproofing, could be better. Great location next to UW. Front desk very friendly, pay for parking in advance...about $7.00.
