Myself and co-workers have been staying here on and off for weeks for work purposes. Friendly, helpful, and flexible staff. They were willing to listen and accommodate us. The rooms were all very clean and well-maintained. The complimentary hot breakfast in the mornings was very helpful and convenient for us. I found the wifi to be faster than that of...

We loved our visit to Maine and the inn was part of the reason why. The room was spacious, immaculate, and even had a comfortable bed. The view of the river was an added bonus. The hot breakfasts provided during our 3 day stay were delicious and offered much more than a traditional continental breakfast. If/when we return to Maine,...

I stayed a night here last week while at a conference down the road at the University of Maine and was very pleased with it. The location is of course excellent--it is walkable both to campus and to downtown Orono. The south facing views of the Stillwater River and outdoor pool were lovely. It is not easy to keep a...

For an older place, it has been beautifully remodeled with updated bathroom furnishings, nice bedding and comfortable mattresses. In addition, it was spotlessly clean. One of the high points is a hot breakfast with quite a few choices. The staff was accommodating and the business center worked well. It was very convenient to the UMaine campus, to our friends in...

We spent a weekend here in the fall. It is a beautiful hotel five minutes from campus and walking distance to some nice restaurants in Orono. The lawn and river behind the hotel are quite beautiful. It is worth asking for a second floor room facing the river. There is also a nice view of the beautiful pool. Our room...

The owner has provided charming renovations to make guests feel at home. From a friendly bear statue in the lobby, to an evening wine and cheese offering, hospitality is extended. Quiet room, great breakfast.

Stayed for three days to visit my niece who attends UMaine Orono. Close to Orono center and UMaine campus is why I choose it. Mini fridge and Keurig are a nice touch as is the full breakfast from 7-10. Only recommendation to management is to have the maid staff begin cleaning after 10 am. After a 4-5 hour drive I...

I was attending my 50th class reunion at the University. The Inn is certainly a much more modern (and expensive) accommodation than it was 50 years ago. The room was very clean and comfortable, with all the expected amenities. The location is convenient to all the UMaine campus entrances, and to downtown Orono (i.e., Pat's). The free breakfast is adequate...

We had a first floor room with access to the parking lot and a small amount of foot traffic from above us that ended at a reasonable time. Our room was fine with a refrigerator that we used. The breakfasts both mornings were delicious.
