University Inn is very conveniently located near GW University, lots of cafes and restaurants and a 7 minute walk to Kennedy Center and Watergate. It's an older building, not in any way fancy, but room was very clean and comfortable. Lovely staff. And one can walk to Dupont Circle (in 20 minutes or so).

Good place to stay for college visits. We visited GWU, American and Georgetown. A few blocks from Metro station at Foggy Bottom. Hotel is dated but is clean and staff is friendly. Restaurant is good also. If you are looking for a hotel in a good location close to Metro and under $300 per night then this is the hotel....

The very helpful and friendly staff at the University Inn make it easy to overlook that the building and furniture could use an update. This is an affordable alternative to downtown chain hotels. The location is one of the best in DC. Mere steps to Foggy Bottom Metro stop and restaurants and only a few blocks from George Washington University,...

The University Inn is tucked inconspicuously into a nice, residential neighborhood near George Washington University. It's a very short walk from both the Foggy Bottom Metro station and the campus and just a stone's throw from the Watergate. My room was beautiful and the staff was very accommodating, even getting me a cab for a 4:00 a.m. ride to the...

This was my husband and I’s first time staying in Washington, DC, so we wanted to make sure that it was close to all of the main attractions. We were only in Washington for 18 hours. The hotel was central to everything, about a 20 minute walk to the Lincoln Memorial, for example. However, I would stress that if you...

We always stay at the University Inn when we're on our way to visit family in Virginia. It's reasonably priced for DC and is charming and clean. It's within walking distance to Georgetown and our favorite DC restaurant, Filomena's. Staff is friendly and helpful. A great place to stay.

This hotel is comfortably near the mall. I caught the subway about 3 blocks from the hotel and took it to the Smithsonian. Walking on the mall to the Lincoln Memorial and then back to the hotel was a comfortable walking distance for an older person in reasonable shape. The rooms were comfortable and very clean.

Spent four nights here in a spacious suite for a combined work/pleasure trip with my wife. The most striking feature of the hotel is the genuine warmth and helpful, caring attitude of all staff: at the door, front desk, cleaning rooms, in the restaurant...even the repairman, who has no reason to chat up guests, was delightful to talk with.

My son was hospitalization at GWUH and the hospital website recommended to this hotel. It was walking distance to the hospital, transportation and numerous restaurants. The staff was friendly, accommodating and genuinely concerned about my family. The property was clean and well maintained. I would stay at this hotel again with no hesitation.
