Choose this hotel if you are on a college visit to UMaine! After a very long road trip from CT to Maine, we enjoyed a very comfortable night.Our room was possibly one of the cleanest, most comfortable, and well-equipped rooms we have ever stayed in. I appreciated the memory foam mattress, and the carpets were spotless (unlike the chain motel-style...

My stay at the University Inn was everything I needed it to be. Conveniently located within walking distance of multiple interesting dinner locations, just 5 minutes from the college campus, clean and safe. Positive features to the hotel- shower faucet was actually tall enough for me! (a big win for anyone that approaches 6 feet in height), heated outdoor pool...

This is a lovely place if you are in Orono. It was clean, convenient, and the staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were very comfortable, each with a small patio. It was warmish, so we were able to enjoy some time sitting in the March sunshine. They offer a wine and cheese hour and a great breakfast that comes...

My son & I stayed here for 1 night when visiting UMaine. The hotel overlooks the river, albeit frozen in February. Room was clean, service was good. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the am. I had no complaints about the hotel. Do not hesitate to stay here!

The staff is very friendly and professional. We have stayed there several times when visiting UMaine and have always had a good experience. Rooms are clean, and they do a nice job with the complimentary breakfast, too. Great value and convenient to the college...I definitely recommend University Inn!

This year, we stayed on the 2nd floor in a room with two double beds. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean. We like that there is a fridge and microwave in the room. They provide a great breakfast (eggs, sausage, toast, pastries, cereal, juices, fruit salad). The accommodations aren't super fancy, but they are every bit as nice...

The University Inn is well kept and expertly managed. And the staff is always friendly, courteous and helpful. I stay routinely when working with the University of Maine and I am never disappointed. The Inn is well located, a nice walk to town, and serves complimentary wine and cheese from 5-6. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. Ask for...
