So So
It seems like they give the worst room to the people. The window valence was falling when we got there and the tile in the bathroom was broken and loose in a big area near the tub. It seemed clean and was comfortable, but those problems gave us an uneasy feeling.

University inn has been my go to place to stay when I visit my daughter. This time was a disappointment. I checked in late on my first night so I didn’t notice the food (or worse) that was splattered on the carpet until the next morning. The shower curtain rod was barely hanging on the wall causing the shower curtain to lay on the bottom of the shower, where you stand. Someone pulled the fire alarm at 4:30 in the morning and I had just gotten to sleep after listening to the sorority party going on across the street.

Stay at this place!! 😊☺️
I always pick the place when my friends and I have a show/concert to go to at the varsity theater. It's convenient, clean, employees are friendly & helpful, and affordable!

Good value
Good for the most part. Good location, friendly service and comfortable. The room, however, smelled terrible. The carpet had been recently cleaned with some powder that simply made things worse.

Nothing special, but good location and value
Location is very good for the university, a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest part of campus, and 10 minutes to Dinkytown. Room was clean, tidy, and everything worked fine. Same for the bathroom. Decor feels a bit dated but otherwise fine. My room had a kitchenette which was basic but functional. Room had reasonable blackout blinds. Staff were nice and friendly. Check in/out process was very easy. In general, hotel is perfectly nice though it could do with a lick of paint.

Reasonable / Good Value
I really like the front desk lady, Nadiya? Very nice gal with great attitude. Room was as expected, nothing special, fairly clean, standard bed that was comfy. Would stay here again if in the area.
