At first, we wondered if the hotel would be too removed from anything we'd like to see, but that turned out not to be true. There were many coffee shops, restaurants and attractions within walking distance! (10 to 20 minutes). For our stay in this hotel, we had two main requirements: we wanted a quiet room, and we wanted separate... More

We arrived a bit early and the owner let us in our room - which was nice of him. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a small refrigerator in the room. The sink was outside the bath/tub area. There was a pool area outside and a city park across the street. The neighborhood looked a bit rough because... More

Found a bedbug in our bed during our pre-checkout sweep of the room! Unfortunately it was after we slept there. Basic, moderately priced motel. Management is nice, staff is nice, bathroom is clean. Our research says that bedbugs are not a cleanliness issue, so guess the owners need to fumigate the whole place. I wouldn't stay there again. Too bad.... More

Universary Inn is a nice place to stay while visiting Tucson. It is clean comfortable and quiet. Also affordable. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. Beds were very comfortable. It is minutes to Resturants and many attractions. Free wifi, cable tv, pool and breakfast. We will be staying again.

In town on business. Appreciated the location, refrigerator and microwave, the laundry facilities. Great Wifi! Decent breakfast, good showers, very clean. As a woman traveling alone I requested a second floor room and felt very safe. They have reception on the property 24 hours, and security gates they close at night. Will stay again next year!

A friend and I stayed overnight at the University Inn at the end of a 5 day road trip. The place is clean, well maintained, quiet. Good value for $$. Would recommend and would stay again. There is a "continental breakfast" that we passed on, but did enjoy the coffee.

You have a car, pull in and park. The hotel is located not far from I-10, old town, and University of Arizona but little too far to walk to restaurants and bars if you are that type of person (I am).
