            5.4

            The aspects that made it worthwhile: location to the university, shuttle services, fridge and microwave in the room, and a better than conventional "continental" breakfast.

            I was set up in a disabled persons room without being notified that the room was set up for a disabled person. We had a difficult time initially finding the light switches, until we went into the bathroom and saw all the bars. Then we realized they were lower than normal. I feel the room was overpriced for what it was. There was nothing special about the room or the fabrics of the sheets. I feel that this hotel is only good if you plan on staying in your room for sleep, and for that there are plenty out there that are much cheaper. It was clean and that was nice, but still not worth the cost. Give the overall experience a C+.

            Close to good restaurants.

            There were loud people about one night.

            Complimentary breakfast, recycling bin in room, good sized room (easily enough room for a roll-away), candy in lobby, shuttle, location

            10.0

            Friendly staff, generous breakfast portions, walking distance to bars. Thumbs up. I hope the price stays low. I wouldn't pay more for the rooms. They can get a bit warm and stuffy, but they were definitely clean.

            Parking lot fills up fast at night.

          • Single
            10.0

            Comfortable and convenient hotel at a very good rate. Nothing swanky or ostentatious, just good clean honest accommodations in a safe, walkable neighborhood. I'd definitely stay there again and will recommend it to friends and colleagues who are heading for Seattle. I gather the University Inn is a place where families (and others) stay when their loved ones are at University Hospital for treatment--and I can't imagine a kinder, more accommodating and restful place to stay under such anxious circumstances.

            10.0

            My husband and I appreciated that you served breakfast earlier for the STP riders and provided a free shuttle ride to REI so we could pick up our registration info. It was really thoughtful and unexpected! We will definitely consider visiting and staying with University Inn again.

          • Single
            6.6

            I stay at the University Inn because it's close to the University of Washington Medical Center. I wish they had a reduced rate for those who have appointments at the hospital because we just need an overnight place to sleep before our appointments.

            The rate is outrageous.

          • Family with children

            Shuttle service and the hard work from the staff

            Small

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Mostly that it was in the right place. I was looking for something near Children's Hospital, with parking. However, the room was really comfortable (awesome pillows!) and didn't smell like cigarettes.

            The parking spots were very narrow. This seems to be the case in all the University District, and actually this hotel was better than most.

          • Couple
            7.8

            I inadvertently left my car overnight in the loading/dropping off only section (I know, what kind of a moron doesn't bother to read the loading/unloading only sign, but who has an enviable IQ at 3am?) and found my car still there the next day, no one called to complain or tow my car. I really appreciate the hotel's the understanding of my apparent lack of understanding of my surroundings. Thanks University Inn!

            not used to that kind of pillow, a little too fluffy for me, but not a deal breaker

          • Family with children
            4.2

            Breakfast was good.

            I went there with my wife and son. They have a no old room with two bed . (Pet is available only in old room ) First day they a room with two beds. and 2nd day they have only one-bed room. We sleeped in a one-bed room with extra charge 20dollar/day and I slept with my dog on the floor 2 night long.

          • Single
            8.8

            The room was large and the waffle for breakfast was good.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            We arrived early and we were able to check in early. That was a huge plus for us the reason we came to Seattle was for a Rugby match that we had to be at by 2:15. It gave us time to unpack, unwind from our drive, and get to the game refreshed. Made a big difference.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The price was very reasonable and the service was very good. I also liked the free parking and the continental breakfast.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            I enjoyed the clean comfortable ambiance of the hotel. It was an unpretentious and friendly environment.
