Stayed two nights here while attending a wedding in Seattle. Hotel is a bit dated be adequate. Our room was OK, bed comfortable and the usual amenities that you'd expect. Continental breakfast is included and is just average. Parking was behind the building with a number of stairs to negotiate to get into the lobby. Entrance from the parking area... More

I really enjoyed this hotel! I chose to stay at University Inn because it is near the University of Washington where I was attending a meeting, and was just within the allowable federal rate at $202/night. This is more than I would pay if traveling and paying on my own, but at the same time, this was one of the... More

The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. They were happy to assist me in any way I asked. I was surprised they provided a free shuttle to various city attractions. Regrettably the shuttle does NOT go to the airport. Rooms are a bit smallish and sparse with just a small window that can be opened.

It was comfortable, but the place is very dated. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was poor. There were no whole grain selections and limited selection. No fresh fruit other than a banana. At least the scones were tasty. You have to go down the street a couple of blocks to get to the... More

This was one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in! We were a little skeptical staying in the University District, but glad we did! This hotel was affordable in so many ways: rooms were great (beds were super comfortable), free shuttles around town, free breakfast (that included more than donuts), and very helpful staff!! We were near a bus stop... More

We had a nice stay in the hotel. It may be an old motel, that has been nicely upgraded. The room was nice. They use the feather bed comforters like in Europe, which are different for some people. The bed was nice, but thought the pillows were awful. Kind of hard. A very nice complementary breakfast. The people at the... More

The room was fine--except for the ultra-hot new-age comforters that felt more like a mattress pad wad. Sheets would be better. Breakfast was average--no hot food and no variety. The chocolate muffins were good but not a healthy choice. The shuttle schedule puts it into a total non-amenity. It either began running at 4:30 p.m. or stopped running at 4:30... More

We needed a place to hang for a day prior to boarding the Ruby Princess sailing out of Seattle. We booked the hotel on-line not knowing completely what to expect. Boy were we pleasantly surprised.
