    Just ok

    An old motel, but decent enough for a place to sleep. However, it's absurdly expensive for the condition of the property. The room was clean, but reeked of cheap cleaning solution.

    Updated rooms give this little motel a lift.

    The hotel has been updated and while it's not The Four Seasons or even close it's much better than what you might expect. I liked that they have "wood/pergo" floors instead of carpet. Good location, we went to see a band at The Freemont just down the street and it was a short walk.

    Overnight stay

    It’s a good hotel for a quick stay. It’s was remodeled and clean. Only exception was the dirt on the bottom of my feet after walking around. I did like it was hardwood floors for cleanliness.

    Very nice, good value, but a bit noisy

    The University Inn is a classic 60s-style two-story motel that has been completely refurbished. Everything about our room was modernized and comfortable. The room had two nice big windows that open for fresh air, and included a mini-fridge, a microwave, and a pod coffee maker. The only problem was noise from outside. Those nice open windows let in the sounds of early risers starting their cars (and trucks), and the sound of a big fan next door cycling on and off all night. Oh, and I shouldn't forget to mention that everyone in the office was very nice, they had some breakfast snacks in the morning, and our room was perfectly clean when we arrived.

    Good for a short stay. It was clean but I wouldn’t stay more than a day. The bed was so hardy my husband and I could not sleep.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I didn’t like the fact that even all the rooms were clean the front desk person didn’t let us check in early. The front desk person was not pleasant. She was very rude. She said she would call me when the room was available and she didn’t. When we came to check in I asked her if we can have a room on the second floor, she refused to accommodate us and said all the rooms were fully booked and that she didn’t have an empty room to move us in. I asked if we can get a refund, she also refused that.I called the hotel after five minutes and she said she did have a room available so she straight up lied and just wanted to push us to take the room she wanted us to have. I’ve never been treated so rudely before but this lady was straight up rude. I don’t recommend anyone to stay in this hotel.
