You're welcomed from the start--and the beds are the softest, most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! The rooms were clean and nice. They have a continental breakfast ready each morning and pineapple cupcakes in the afternoon. We'll definitely be back!

My mom and I stayed at the University Inn so she could complete some needed tests at the hospital. The hotel was clean, comfortable (great beds!) and close to what we needed. The free shuttle service was a bonus that we used a few times as well. Enjoyed the cupcakes! The breakfast was fine but the Portage Bay Cafe next... More

The room was clean, well fitted and comfortable (if you like soft beds, not my preference). The staff were fantastic, went above and beyond to help in any way they could. Breakfast was basic and kind of sugar loaded, some healthier options would be good, but otherwise well stocked.

We enjoyed our stay at this cute hotel in the university district. While off the beaten track of Seattle tourist attractions, it was a quick drive away from all the action yet provided a quiet place to rest after a day in the crowds downtown. The room was small but comfortable, with niceties such as soft bedding, fluffy comforters, good-quality... More

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed our time there very much. Everyone we encountered on staff was more than pleasant and went out of the way to be helpful. Special kudos go to Julio the shuttle driver. Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable, though a bit on the small side. Breakfast was the standard hotel fare. The hotel... More

Booked this hotel for 3 nights after our cruise. So glad we did! It was a wonderful surprise for the cost. The rooms were very spacious and modern. We had driven to Seattle and the parking was secured which made us feel better about our cars safety. The personnel were very helpful and cheerful. We took advantage of their hospitality... More

Hello Cynthia, Thank you for sharing your feedback about your stay. I am a little confused as we do offer a complimentary breakfast from 6am-10am daily. The neighboring restaurant, Portage Bay Cafe, is a very popular breakfast and lunch spot for many area locals. There are several restaurants in the U-District area that are highly recommended and close enough to... More

This hotel is great for exploring the university area. They have a free shuttle that will drop you in the midst of downtown to explore or you can always take an uber. Not walking distance to the main attractions of seattle. The hotel room was clean, bright, modern, and quirky. It was a great stay!
