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...

A very pleasant stay with no surprises. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious and clean, and it is conveniently located close to U of Maine and some nice places to eat and drink.

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...

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...

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.

Attended a football game at U Maine. Hotel is right down the street from the school. Rooms were very clean, neat and up-to-date. Check-in was easy. Complimentary coffee in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

We did not eat breakfast at any of our...

We stayed here for 3 nights (Sept 8/9/10). We had an upstairs room overlooking the beautiful Stillwater River. It was hot so we relaxed by the pool and went for a swim too.
