Great location (quiet area between University and downtown). University Inn is an modest economy motel in an older building. Driving up, it is not impressive to look at. Usually, this is a formula for a bad experience. Not the case here- very clean and quiet with a comfortable bed and regular TV (non-flat screen). Refrigerator and microwave... a pool but it looks a bit lame. AC worked great. Bathroom dated but in good condition and very clean. Room was fair sized.
The closest thing to a complaint is that the breakfast is pretty bad and coffee very bad.
If staying here, be sure to go to nearby 4th Ave, area called "Pie Allen". It is walking distance (maybe 10 blocks away) or you can drive there - plenty of free parking. This seems like the strip for student nightlife and cheap eats.
I have paid a whole lot more than $61 (including taxes) and gotten a whole lot less. University Inn is 100% value. I would stay here anytime.
