5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Clean and comfortable and conveniently located to the U of M

Stayed 3 nights in Dec. 2019


  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Univeristy Inn does not have an elevator. The employees were pleasant except for the manager when I reached out to report issues. She was very rude and did not listen to what needed to be fixed in the room. I stayed in room 211 and it was in disrepair. The bathroom sink and tub were slow to drain. The blind was broken. The vent hood, towel rack and shower rod were barely hanging on the wall. I do not recommend staying here. The manager does not want to hear any issues.

    The Inn is easy to access off the freeway, be careful not to miss the driveway. The coffee machine in the lobby is deluxe but no breakfast.
