This was our second stay at the University Inn, and we received the same friendly and efficient service as we had a year before. It was our good fortune that the outdoor pool was open. The breakfasts (included in the room fee) are excellent--and the evening wine and cheese is an added bonus. One possible downer for some people is...

We did a quick overnight stay at University Inn. The continental breakfast was delicious, the view overlooking the rive was beautiful (ask for second floor odd numbers), the staff were polite and friendly. The front lobby was bright, warm and welcoming. It had the charm and feel of New England proper. Beds were comfortable. The renovations in the bathroom area...

I have often stayed at the University Inn when the state music educators' conference has been in Orono. I love the facility for its river view, clean rooms and proximity to downtown. My latest stay was exceptional because of the employees. There was a billing problem created by a national booking company (make sure you are talking to/booking with the...

Great location, the rooms are always clean and the staff is super friendly! This is always our first choice if we need a room when visiting our son at UMaine. I've heard they have a Dip an Sip Happy Hour in the Summer that we are looking forward to checking out.

Found this place back in 2012 when our daughter was accepted at UMaine. This was our home away from home when visiting our daughter. The staff is always helpful and friendly, and are welcoming of pets, large and small! Our daughter graduated this past weekend and I needed an extra day to move her out of her apartment. What a...

I like the fact it is not a chain hotel and the staff is friendly helpful and kind. It is an older building and has plenty of character. Parking is easy and being upstairs 2nd floor is the best choicem The breakfast and proximity make it ideal. It's close to the university and Olde Town Canoes.

Friendly and made to feel welcome. Convenient location and nice breakfast to start the day for moving my son out of the dorm. Fitness center was a nice plus to work the stiffness out after a long day of driving. I'm sure I'll be booking here annually.

This is a small, comfortable, clean, and welcoming motel near UMaine Orono. We have stayed here several times for college events. Great proximity to campus and downtown Orono. Bangor, the next town over has great restaurants, mall district, and a casino.
