I had an awesome 2 night stay at University Inn. The rooms were very well appointed and clean with wonderful amenities. The beds were very comfortable. Customer service was excellent as well, and I enjoyed the free continental breakfast. Definitely recommend this hotel

Stayed a night for a UW campus visit (it was within easy walking distance), and chose this hotel so that I did not have to worry about campus parking. Room a bit small but comfortable and quiet despite being next to a couple of busy streets. Very nice snacks in the lobby and friendly staff.

The hotel is located in the middle of the University of Washington campus so it is outstanding for visiting parents. It also appeared that there were guests at the hotel who were staying there because of its' proximity to the UW medical facilities. There are lots of restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby. The hotel DOES NOT have free parking but...

Our check-in was great and the manager made sure we are comfortable with the room we chose. The hotel is very clean, comfortable and new. But again the staff made sure our stay is a great experience. The location is great and If you are working you can probably park on the street since its free at night, or you...

Hotel was clean and comfortable with amenities above and beyond other hotels. Staff was kind and super helpful. If interviewing at the medical center, the free hospital shuttle stops right across the street and is only a ten minute ride. Definitely will choose this company again for future travel. Would recommend it to anyone interviewing at U of W.

Even though the style is retro, the amenities are modern. The continental breakfast had a wide selection of foods and they even had complimentary toiletries if you forgot something (I actually forgot a toothbrush). I didn't use the shuttle because the schedule didn't work with mine but it's nice that it was available. Staff was friendly.

I love this place. We stay here every Husky game so we don't have to drive back to Puyallup. The service is impeccable. They always give us great eating and drinking recommendations. Very clean and comfy beds. I will continue to keep coming back.

My husband was having surgery at a nearby hospital. Because he was not discharged as early as planned, twice I had to extend my stay. Not only did the staff allow me to keep the same hotel room I was in, but the price was unchanged. Also the convenience of having the hospital shuttle service across the street and the...
