Stayed at University Inn for 3 nights while our crew visited UK (2 rooms).
The hotel is made up of two converted apartment buildings. The layout is not your typical business traveler hotel. Rooms are spacious but have no desks. The rooms and common areas were kept very clean.
One room, with a queen bed, had a large counter with sink, mini fridge and microwave in the room. The other room had two double beds with no other extras.
The overwhelming positive attribute is the location. Walk across the street to south campus (although its a large campus). It's a ten minute walk to the bookstore / student center and the bars & restaurants along S. Limestone near Ave. of Champions.
Most of the hotel front desk employees are young. There is one particularly useless young man who is new to the area, can't give directions, and thinks "I don't know" is a perfectly fine response to any question a guest may have. Another young lady is extremely helpful.
The "free" continental breakfast is unremarkable - like most. I would stay here again when visiting UK.
