TripAdvisor Rating


North of downtown Seattle and Lake Union, minutes from the University of Washington campus and the hip neighborhoods of Fremont and Ballard, is this modern, eclectic hotel perfect for families looking to score a free breakfast and a pool for their kids during their time spent in Seattle. Rooms with a pair of queen beds will fit most families of three or four comfortably and in those rooms, you’ll be pleased to find a Keurig, free bottled water, Wi-Fi, seersucker bath robes and slippers that you can take home with you to remember your stay and a large umbrella (this is Seattle, after all!). Upgrade to a deluxe room to get all of the above, plus a microwave and mini-refrigerator. All guests will enjoy a free daily continental breakfast and complimentary shuttle service to downtown and/or take one of the complimentary bicycles out for a spin around the neighborhood. Each afternoon, you and your kids will be treated to the University Inn’s signature pineapple cupcakes and local coffee.

Ben's visit to Seattle


I arrived at the University Inn on Sunday, Nov. 10th, considerably before the posted check-in time. Shawn was terrific, and within a few hours managed to find me a room I could check in to. I really appreciated his assistance - I had been traveling for many hours, and just wanted to take the weight off my feet before starting the business component of my trip. I am very grateful for Shawn's assistance, and will always stay at the University Inn when I am in Seattle!

Enjoyed our stay. Everything was nice. Breakfast could be better. Rooms are very clean and it is a great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely better than expected. Would like to revisit this property
