The University Inn Academic Suites were very clean and has had some updates. It's the perfect location: close to the University of Maine and walking distance to local restaurants. The beds weren't real comfortable, but okay. The free full breakfast was excellent. All rooms are smoke-free, and enforced.

The hotel is simple clean and everyone friendly. The hotel is older but not a deterrent. The bears in the reception area made me laugh as my son goes to University of Maine and there are bear statues everywhere! The receptionist went out of her way to assure I had a cup of coffee and a great stay.

The only downside was the room same was a bit small for the price, nothing bad to say, breakfast was fairly good. The bed was really comfortable, the service was extremely friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the first level balcony. I give this place 4 stars only due to size of room.

I made this reservation at the last minute to accommodate a college visit. I was very pleased with the service and quality of accommodation. It was quiet. The TV in the room was excellent and a great variety of channels were available on DirecTV. Orono is small and restaurants were within walking distance. The hotel is right near campus as...

Great place next to the river. Quiet and peaceful! I was there with my son touring for colleges. We were greeted warmly after a 4 hour drive with available coffee. The lobby and common area was clean and inviting. I noticed they offered complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon, but we did not partake!

Inn was very clean, very comfortable and had a great view of the river and downtown. The room was clean, well supplied, and we were greeted by a friendly little stuffed 'black bear' we cold have brought home. Breakfast was good but the food could have been warmer. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Great place to stay, and I...
