Staypineapple at University Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had 36 hours to be in Seattle for family event and some fun stuff. Thanks for being in the best location for all. Will come again. Loved the shuttle to the market.

The hotel is centrally located in the U district and within short walking distant to UW, several markets and shops, and a plethora of excellent restaurants and pubs. Vintage and quirky styles abound throughout. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The bed was ridiculously comfortable; firm yet plush. High speed internet was top notch with a very long list of tv channels to choose from. I didn't want to leave my room after a long day of training. Continental breakfast could have had more to offer, but the food and quality coffee and tea that was offered did the job!

Beautifully restored hotel in a modern Euro theme. Very comfy beds. Exceptional staff! Great location just 10 min outside of downtown Seattle, and their free shuttle takes you there!

Great customer service, clean rooms, and a touch or personalization that was very much appreciated.

I would stay there next time I'm in Seattle. Facilities were fresh and the staff was pleasant. Location was convenient to UW Hospital.

The hotel features two buildings that connect at a common lobby. Our original booking put us in the old (retro looking), recently renovated building that felt like it slanted down a hill. We called the desk and "upgraded" to a room in the newer building which hasn't been updated recently and felt dated. The whole hotel has a retro feel, which might be cute to some but was not comfortable for us. The hotel does not offer much of any amenities. There is a swimming pool and that's about it. Parking was $10 extra/ night and was easy, once you get through all the traffic (and I mean bad traffic - took about 20 minutes to move two blocks) which is caused by road improvements happening in the area. The building themselves face some ugly dormitory type buildings with college kids peering into your window most hours of the day and night, so keep your curtains closed. The hotel is very close to downtown Seattle as well as a very quant area called Wallingford with great restaurants. However, due to all the traffic and road closures it is not convenient to get to all. The staff was very nice and the hotel overall was pretty clean. This hotel is a good choice if the price is right at the time of your booking, however if you can find something similarly priced elsewhere - skip this one.

Stayed one night. Close to all things in the university district.

Great room, very clean. Friendly staff. Great location.

The window is facing gabage area, and i had to close the window all the time. The room is very small, dark, also i heard noise from neughbours.

Wonderful great breakfast and staff highly recommended

Walking distance to many places and easy public transportation

Every little detail was taken care of during our stay. Great employees, room and extra ammenities made this hotel feel special. Loved their attention to not being wasteful, but never felt anything was skimped.

Overall experience was great, friendly and helpful staff

Love staying at pineapple hotels! They seem to do a little bit extra to make sure your stay is pleasant. I like the continental breakfast every morning. The rooms are clean and modern. Will tell friends to stay at one when they visit.

Great place for the money. Very comfy bed with the softest pillows. Quiet even though it's in town

Much to my surprise, when all the hotels in Seattle downtown are booked, this hotel is heaven sent. It's 20 mins from downtown, it's clean, the rooms are very comfortable, the pool is small, but relaxing. The staff is courteous, helpful, and friendly . I really liked this hotel, and when I return to Seattle, to visit my daughter, this is where I am staying!

I had a very comfortable stay. The hotel is in a great location with Zipcar nearby if you want access to car share. The room was clean and comfortable as well. Parking is more affordable than many other Seattle hotels at $10/night.

This staff is courteous, the rooms are newly remodeled, parking is included. This is what you are looking for if you want fresh and clean without paying a lot of money....

I was in Seattle visiting my son at the UW. The location was great, rooms were clean, staff was awesome! I just wished they had a better breakfast!

Hello Tyler & Mark and thank you for taking the time to write this review. I'm sorry you were frustrated by our location and didn't enjoy the retro feel we offer. We do hope to renovate the South wing soon -- so hopefully, if you visit again, you'll enjoy your room a bit more. Thank you for the kind words about our staff and offering constructive criticism as well. We hope to see you again. All the best! Tommy Front Desk Manager
