It may seem odd to give an inexpensive hotel set up as if it were a motel a five-star rating, but I look for three things in a place to stay (a friend picked this out for me because of convenience): value, cleanliness, and the staff. On all three counts, this place is superb. First off, $70 a night with free wi-fi and a respectable continental breakfast. Second, my room was heroically clean. True, if someone is expecting Hilton splendor (complete with mini-bar) one can pay three times as much and go there. The sheets and towels were fine; the room was spotless. It's true that the Lamp Post has a vaguely Fifties or early Sixties approach to its bathroom decor, but I found this charmingly reminiscent of my childhood home. The refrigerator worked well and quietly. Finally, the staff that I met -- Julie and Kevin -- couldn't have been nicer or more eager to please. I've been at chain hotels where the staff couldn't remember to give a wake up call or were so busy talking to each other that they ignored guests. Not here: Julie and Kevin were superb hoteliers, in that they really wanted to make a guest's stay memorably fine in any way they could. And for those who want the mint on the pillow, it was a three-minute walk to Trader Joe's, where one could buy a truckload with the money saved. I'd stay there again when I next visit Ann Arbor, I assure you. And I'm no one's relative.

We stayed here a few weeks or so after the new owners took over. We paid about $10+ more per night and got one of the remodeled rooms. They only had a couple done when we were there but they were worth the money! It was nicer than my last two or three stays at Hilton in Minneapolis recently and it was about $100 less for the room! I am planning on staying here next time, with the location and price you can't touch it. Just came back for a game. Laurie, the owner, found us good deal on some tickets that one of the other guest couldn't use! She been great every time we have stayed here.

It was extremely quiet. Had a continental breakfast and the location was good. The bed was very comfortable. We were staying for several days and did not want to spend an arm and a leg on a hotel.

We loved the old school charm of The University Inn. The staff is friendly and helpful and our room was very comfortable, clean and inviting. There is a complementary continental breakfast included with the extremely reasonable room rate. We were very pleased with the Inn and will not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

My husband and I stayed here for the Penn State/Michigan game. First of all..GREAT location! We walked to the game (it's a healthy walk, but so much better than driving around the stadium!) and there is a small shopping plaza right next door with a Trader Joe's which was really convenient.

The rooms are super clean and downright adorable. I was taken back to holiday road trips with my parents back in the day. There are just enough updates to feel like I had modern amenities without ruining the old school charm. The bathroom had cool vintage tiles, the bed was comfortable and I was able to adjust the heat easily which was pretty important to me.

The staff in the office was great. We drove from Chicago and got in pretty late. The staff member was cheerful and helpful and suggested some great ideas for breakfast the next morning if we chose not to partake in the continental breakfast the hotel provided.

We will definitely come here again on a game weekend. The price was HALF of what all the other hotels in the area are for game weekends and the experience was delightful. If you are looking for a convenient place close to campus and love vintage charm this is a great place to stay.

This is a family run establishment and after reading the reviews I didn't have very high expectations but expected everything to be adequate.

The room was a bit dated and the furniture a bit old but everything was perfectly clean and acceptable unlike other budget places I have staid in.

The bed was a bit creaky and the fridge made a slight banging noise when it went off. That would have kept me awake but I identified it before going to bed and switched it off.

The bathroom was again rather ancient but everything worked as it should and it was flawlessly clean.

The breakfast was adequate and the breakfast room was clean and simple.

I would really have given this place 4 stars but I had the best shower pressure of all the hotels I staid in, including some pretty expensive ones. Got to give that 5 stars.

Really nice update to the Inn! Definitely recommend visiting here when taking a trip to Michigan. Good wifi which was new. Great value for the location. 20 min walk to campus with easy access to public transport.

Our stay at the Inn was very nice. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. The bathroom was outdated and only had a shower, not ideal for little ones, but worked just fine. Staff was courteous and tried to accommodate how they could. Breakfast was not anything special, but filled our bellies! We will be coming back when we visit family.

We stayed here 4 nights in July while visiting our daughter, who was at U of M for a summer research position. The location is wonderful, very close to the college in a very nice neighborhood. We reserved a standard room but were upgraded to a room with a kitchenette for free. The room was very clean, only complaint is it felt/smelled a little damp (maybe an upstairs room would have been better, it wasn't bad enough for us to request a new room). The staff was friendly and overall we were very pleased!

Special kudos to (desk clerk) "Kevin", who was especially helpful with navigation around that area (for this out-of-town visitor).
