We have been staying here since 2013 and liked it very much. We had read about the breakfast spread being awesome and it is true. Good healthy options. Good yummy options too. Good rooms. Pet friendly. You might want a upper floor if you are a light sleeper since you can hear the upstairs occupants walking. If you sleep deep,... More

Nice, quiet Inn on the Stillwater River, just outside downtown. While the property screams Mid-Century Motor Court in some ways, the room are large and the facility is very well maintained. Everything else was modern and in line with other larger business hotel chains.

I have spent 5 nights for work purposes at the University Inn. The room was very big, with all what is needed and very clean. Breakfast was good. Only bad thing was the noise insulation: I could here the TV of the guy beside me like if it was in my bedroom...!

I took my son to an open house at the University and this was truly an ideal location. Booking, it was quite obvious it was there for the convenience of people visiting the University and, since it was so much closer and cheaper than the next nearest motel, I figured it would a bit of a dump despite the positive...

We spent Thursday and Friday of Veterans Day weekend at the University Inn while we checked out UMO. It's located right on the Stillwater River, within a mile or two of downtown Orono in one direction, and the campus in the other. We had no problem with our late check-in Thursday night. The young women manning the front desk throughout... More

The University Inn is a little jem along Stillwater River in Orono. Bath fixtures in our room were new, new tiles and flooring. Very good hot breakfast included and wine and cheese from 6 to 7 every evening. The only reason I did not give a 5 is that the beds in our room could be replaced. The Inn is... More

Great visit this past weekend. Friendly and welcoming front desk staff. A Maine bear was left on my bed since I was on my own this visit -my "companion" this weekend. Local Newspaper at the information table plus brochures for various towns in Maine.

The rooms with view to the river are very nice. Breakfast has room for improvement: no plastic dishes, selection of cheese and cold cuts would be great. The hotel is located near the center of the town and near a nice trail right next to the river.
