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?

Everything was great! Comfortable bed, clean room, accommodating and friendly staff. But I am unfortunately am taking off two points due to the “daily amenity fee”, which is $20/ day for some b.s. amenities. I understand that the cost of these amenities needs to be covered, but just increase the price of the room. I absolutely hate it when it is tacked on as a somewhat hidden fee. No one likes this.I also avoid airlines that do this. I hate it so much that next time, I will probably stay somewhere else that doesn’t include an extra amenity fee, and just charges a little more.

Stay here! Great location - very close to the university and also good restaurants, it's a great place to stay. Staff are very friendly, the hotel is clean, they give you "swag" (free water bottles and welcome drinks) and they are pet friendly!! You don't get this experience at so many of the other brand name hotels! Beds are very comfortable, individual blankets are part of the deal - a total bonus and it's just a comfortable place to stay! Check it out on your next trip!

Such a 5 star experience all the way! Excellent customer service, fun pineapple themes and accents, room views of Mount Rainier, super comfy bed comforters and bath robes . Stayed for two nights on a business trip, hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of UW campus. Will definitely return anytime I need a place to stay in Seattle, highly recommend!

BEWARE! There are multiple additional charges beyond the room rate. For example the Amenity Fee is an additional 20-30%, which includes the use of internet. Unfortunately the internet was non functional the entire stay. I have stayed at hotels throughout the USA, Europe and Asia and have never had such a poor experience as this Hotel.

Absolutely amazing! The staff was super fun and friendly. The room was spacious and clean. Everything is pineapple themed and all the extra touches like pineapple charger, robes and coffee mugs. Each guest gets a coaster to exchange for a free beverage or snack. Free reusable bottle with filtered water refills and free beach cruisers to borrow. We will be back!!

The proximity to U of W was great and this is the only reason we stayed here. The staff were very friendly. There is a $20 fee for parking, which is not readily transparent and $23 ‘resort’ fee. This is not a resort. It’s simply a modestly updated Inn with an outdoor poor that is not useable in February and a fitness room in a sister property. The lobby doors are always locked, which is very strange. There is a smell in the room.

Great location, close to University of Washington offices. Gent at check-in was exceptionally, kind, courteous, knowledgeable, and very accommodating - sorry I forgot his name. Checked in around 5:30 p.m. Feb. 14. Room and furnishings were delightful. My only complaints have to do with the bathroom. The replacement shower/tub unit itself, while cleanly caulked and newish, moves terribly. And the wash basin is a holdover from a ‘70s motel. The sink is cracked down the middle and is flanked by a pock-marked mirror. The lightening is antiquated as well. Other than this, it was a night well spent. Parking fee is cheap and we were able to walk everywhere conveniently.

Service is beyond compare. The front desk staff are soooo helpful. Taught this 68 yr old how to use Uber and Uber eats. I’m not from a big city. This was our 3rd stay and we’re going back in 2 weeks. Love this place. Close to University of Washington hospital. They have hospital rates.
