Great place so convenient to UK hospital. Clean, private rooms non-smoking with elevator. Decent cold breakfast - hard boiled eggs, cereal, muffins/bagels, yogurt, etc. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

We were in town for a high school function and needed an affordable/clean place to stay. It checked those boxes. The rooms were clean. The staff were helpful. There was enough breakfast to get us going in the morning. It would have been great to have a working gym, but we definitely felt like the value was well worth our...

Stayed one night in room 355 b. Very spacious. Furnishing- clean, not too worn but nothing special. It was a king bed kitchenette with microwave, fridge and extra sink. (Never used the kitchenette) The room and bath were clean but no bath soap provided for the tub. I'm sure it was an innocent oversight. Good water pressure. Bed and pillows...

I was there for a night with a family member for a doctor's appointment. It's clean and near Baptist Health Hospital. I would recommend only for that purpose. Definitely not a place to stay if you are vacationing.

The beds are small, hard, and uncomfortable. Frat house around the street! You can hear the traffic of the street and people in the next room. The TV in rooms are too small. Way over priced. Never again!

My stay was pleasant. Very clean hotel and had amenities I needed/wanted. I didn't give five stars because we stayed in the adjacent building and didn't like the walking distance (in the rain) to get coffee/breakfast. Other than that, I will certainly stay there again.

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...
