The University Inn is a smallish (about 100 rooms) hotel in Seattle's University District. It is quiet, with very comfortable rooms, a good continental breakfast, and other amenities. The bed we had was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There is an outdoor pool (not available in early March, when we stayed there). Guests of the Inn...

The hospital recommended this hotel. It has a shuttle to and from the hospital. Very nice accommodations, and it saved us parking $$ and the stress of driving back and forth. What we didn't expect was their compassion for the loss of our loved one. We had a late check out and hoped to stay another night. My brother lost...

Such a great place to stay. The staff was very friendly and gave great service. The room was clean. The bed was just right. They have dispensers with hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion right there on the walls. I will stay there if I go back to Seattle.

Our family of four enjoyed staying at the hotel. It was very convenient to UW and provided free parking. Within walking distance to restaurants, nightlife and campus. The continental breakfast was above average with plenty of options.

We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in the U District or Wallingford, and it was well reviewed by the Trip Advisor community. Perhaps because we reserved through Trip Advisor, we got not only a $30 discount, but we were upgraded to a deluxe room. This 60-room hotel is really just your normal 3-star property, comparable to a...

Reviewed 17 February 2015

Our visit occurred in early February, 2014. Hotel was quiet, very comfortable king bed, recently updated lobby and room, and the continental breakfast was very much appreciated. We specifically requested a quiet room and were directed to the fourth floor. The price was very reasonable compared to another hotel in close proximity. We would stay there again.

Well located near University and I-5. Pluses: free parking, breakfast included, free shuttle to downtown with reservation, comfortable bed, friendly staff. Minuses: stayed in old wing and leaky toilet dripped and ran continuously, breakfast was mediocre and needed more fresh fruit.
