Love this hotel. We come to Seattle twice a year to visit our son. We have stayed 5 times and will stay again the next time we come. Good room size, clean rooms, good beds, continental breakfast and great customer service.

I have stayed at the University Inn many times in the past. I enjoy the hotel feel and amenities. Although I could stay at other name brand hotels in the area, I have always picked the University Inn for those reasons. In the last visit, I had two disappointments, 1) The circuit breaker blew in my hotel room and no...

For the price this is a great little hotel. The rooms are unique - great bed and duvets. Bathroom had everything you need. Entire room was clean. Breakfast was your typical one included with your room. Not a lot of room to sit down but shared a table both mornings. Fairly convenient to downtown. I would stay again.

Cute, clean hotel, where they really did think of everything, and excellent location for access to UW Medical Center. They offer a free shuttle service to UWMC, but it is much easier to walk outside, cross the streets and hop on one of the more frequent UW shuttles that are free to ride. Enter your room, and you are greeted...

The room, staff, amenities - all were great. Clean, comfortable beds, mini fridge. This is a cool, place for a moderate price, especially at this location. It was a little difficult to maneuver a wheelchair through the lobby, however.

The staff was welcoming and informative. The room size was generous for a typical mid-town hotel. The children were delighted with the husky sitting atop the bed- as well as the miniature pineapple cupcakes served every afternoon. A complementary shuttle was available. The breakfast buffet had enough variety to please everyone in the family.

Stayed here because it was very close to UW Medical Center. Our room was nice with a mini fridge, flat screen TV and a very comfortable bed. I loved their separate duvets! The hotel was very quiet and although I didn't get to partake in the free breakfast my husband did enjoy it. Overall we would not hesitate to stay...

I stayed in Seattle for a workshop over the weekend and I booked this hotel through priceline. I was in town last year for the same workshop and ended up booking a "fancier" downtown hotel. I was not very excited about my stay last year - it felt overpriced (probably simply based on the location) and parking was an extra...

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? ... more   less
