The University Inn. Where mod meets modern. Hip and happening, eclectic and groovy- The University Inn is a throwback to times when travelling was a supreme adventure and dazzling service came standard. Complementing our fun and funky decor are fantastically comfortable guest accommodations, award-winning organic cuisine and a location that can't be beat. Here you're just minutes from the University of Washington and a short drive to all Seattle has to offer: The Pike Place Market, Space Needle, Seattle Waterfront and more. We invite you do be our guest. Can you dig it?

My girlfriend and I recently visited the University Inn with our miniature dachshund. Now, we have stayed at a number of “pet friendly” hotels before, but nothing compares to the hospitality and customer service we received at the University Inn. When we arrived I had forgotten our dogs bowls but we received bowls in our welcome bag! Crisis averted. When going over the check in process instead of being hit with “the pet rules” we were told all the benefits of stating pineapple! How refreshing. As a young same sex couple we also do receive looks sharing one bed, not the case at all. We felt so welcome and safe at this hotel. Not to mention the eco friendly and Covid procedures that put every other hotel to shame! Thank you for the great service and we look forward to staying again.

My daughter and I hadn't travelled alone since the pandemic (only mini trips with grandparents) and were very excited to stay in a motel and enjoy each others company. Our only plan was to visit the zoo the next morning. We searched and searched motels in the area (considering price, amenities, location, etc. - like everybody does). The University Inn was well worth the extra $$ to park and for resort fee. The security of the motel is top notch (THANK YOU!) This is the BEST nights sleep I have had in a very very long time! I melted into the bed and did NOT want to get out! I will come back just for the good nights sleep - ha! I hope this review hits corporate, because I want to give a huge shout out to Mahir !! He was so kind and considerate to my daughter and I. I called and came down to the lobby a gazillion times and he was delightful and patient each and every time! My daughter (age 8) called him at the front desk to ask if the pool was heated and he actually put her on hold to go test the water to give her an answer. How sweet. :) We will definitely stay here next time we visit the west side. We may even bring the grandparents ;)

The front desk was very friendly and check in was a breeze. My favorite part is that it’s a pet friendly hotel! They gave us complementary poop bags, treats and a water bowl. Through no fault of their own (COVID) they were not able to supply the breakfast so that was bummer.

Perfect spot in the University District, within walking distance of lots of charming neighborhoods and the U-Washington campus. The place next door has the best brunch and there's a Trader Joe's a few blocks away. The rooms are fine enough. My sole complaint was the spotty housekeeping service. I arrived on Thursday. Friday, I had service. Saturday, I asked the front desk late in the afternoon for maid service, which I eventually got. Sunday, they were no-shows. The two bottles of water were supposed to be replenished daily as part of the daily fee. Mine were replenished only on Friday. When I thought about it, I never saw a maid's cart in the hallways during my entire stay.

Best hotel I've ever been too. Staff were so nice and helpful with accessibility for my Wheelchair. They had a awesome room discount for Seattle children's. The room was super accessible, the beds super comfortable, and the bathroom so well designed for access. Made the prep for surgery so much less stressful. Thank you ❤️
