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 décor 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?
Walking distance to UW campus and the campus neighborhoods. A shuttle bus provides great access to other nearby locations, such as downtown. The staff was very helpful.
The wifi was very slow. Although the hotel has a pool, there is no fitness center on site; you need to walk a block to the sister hotel to use the fitness center. Parking is limited.
Convenient and cozy
Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Free shuttle to Westlake Center was convenient.
No free shuttle to/from airport. Had to use Shuttle Express at $19 per person per trip. Terribly slow elevator, and no way to enter stairwell from first floor except by going through the pool area (when it is unlocked). No ice machines, but pre-bagged ice frozen into solid clumps. No on-site laundry. Laundry at sister property Watertown one block away is inconvenient, as it is just a stacked W/D in a tiny closet with nowhere to sit nearby while you wait. When changing rooms, we accidentally left a few items of clothing in the wardrobe. We realized this a few hours later, but the items were gone and the room service staff claimed they had not seen them. I take this to mean they either disposed of them or stole them. No compensation was offered. I cannot recommend staying here.
Quiet clean and convenient. Great staff.
Friendly staff and a lot of amenities.
Could hear people in the hall at night.
The hospitality is top notch! Staff was amazing, very accommodating, rooms were very clean, and the offered services made our trip run smoothly. University Inn was exactly what we want and needed.
breakfast and colorful furniture in the lobby
They weren't specific about which building (old/ new) you were going to stay in.
This was a good location for me. I liked the fact that they had balcony a (although we were locked in) and I liked the simple fun decor
We could not get the room cooled off even with air conditioner on high. Next to elevator which had a gruntled noise with every up/down traveler. No access to the balcony we had (one reason we secured here) we were actually locked in... I mentioned this to the attendant when we were up at 3am - uncomfortably so with heat and noise. They didn't offer anything other than an apology.
Close to UW campus and University Ave which has a lot of restaurants and shops. About a 10 minute drive from downtown so it is away from all the down town traffic and early accessible by bus, light rail or taxi. Rooms were clean and well kept and the balcony off the rooms on the 4th floor were really nice even if the one I was in looked toward the parking lot.
The room was a bit smaller than I anticipated for a standard queen but then again I wasn't planning on doing much more than sleeping. I really have no complaints about this hotel.
