Booked through Hotel Tonight app because it was cheaper. $66 vs $93. Didn't know there was hidden fees with the app. First time I had used it. Ended up paying $70. Not bad for what we had. The room was okay on the cleanliness. Bathroom and beds where clean. Found a really long in a towel that didn't belong to...

My husband & I chose University Inn for a reunion of friends we met several years ago while going to school in Arizona. The manager Jesse Hunt did a superb job helping us plan a three-night stay for couples coming from Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, Texas, & Minnesota. Most of these couples had never been to Kentucky & we wanted them...

My wife and I stayed one night here recently as I wanted to be near the neighborhood where I lived as a kid. The hotel was a pleasant surprise: the lobby is quite elegant compared to most hotels in this price range and our room was spacious and comfortable. Even though our room was located on the ground floor and...

We stayed at the University Inn prior to my husband's heart surgery. This was actually our second stay here. The inn is clean and welcoming. The rooms were spacious and quiet. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. The location (across from the UK campus and near Central Baptist Hospital, UK hospital, and the Children's hospital ) is excellent. The amenities are...

I visited the University inn the night before having surgery at UK. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and doted upon my ten month old like she was a VIP guest. The rooms were spacious and clean. They offered an amazing breakfast assortment that morning. When I was checking out I asked them about the closest garage to park...

If you need to be on the medical portion of campus or at baptist hospital this is a good place to stay. Limited amenities and a minimal continental breakfast I'll get you started but may leave you wanting more. Clean, simple rooms are quiet, beds soft, adequate pillows and toiletries. They don't have cots and make extra blankets seem like...

My wife and I stayed here as a result of family members, who were admitted to the hospital due to a car crash. The main lobby was well decorated. My 3rd floor room was pleasantly large. I was surprised at how quiet the room was with the hotel being located so close to the hospital. The room came with a...

Updated key system boded well, but entering into the common space in the secondary building was a shock - overwhelmed with old tobacco smells. Fortunately, this did not seep into the rooms. No sheers on the windows, so had to keep the blackout blind pulled down all the time. Bathrooms are small and not particularly well laid out. Rooms are...

Nothing to write home about. They lost my reservation when I arrived early morning but everything was figured out by the end of my stay. Rooms were clean but nothing extraordinary. Be prepared for ambulance sounds at night as this is located very close to the hospital.
