Returned to Orono for nostalgic purposes. Were totally comfortable in the University Inn room. We were impressed with the quiet peacefulness and the perfectly comfortable accommodations. It was an ideal base to explore our old haunts in the Orono area with an easy walk both to town and campus. The room is very comfortable and quiet. We could hear no...

I was picking up my son from school for Thanksgiving break and stayed at The University Inn. I have stayed here before and have always been pleased. This time the reception area renovations were finished and looked great. The rat was great, too!

First time staying at the Inn and will definitely go back. Only a few dollars more than where we usually stay when we come to visit my daughter at the University of Maine but well worth it. It is an older building so we did hear some hallway and second floor noise but nothing that was out of control on...

Very clean, nice rooms with plenty of towels provided without even asking. Very pleasant front desk person. Although, we only stayed 1 night, it was enjoyable. Fridge in room with complimentary bottled water. Beds were comfortable as well. Pricing was a little high for 1 night, but I believe they charge the going rate. I would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed at the University Inn in the past, but the recent updates and renovations have made this an even better place to stay. I often stay for 4 days while working at the University of Maine.The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff is courteous, and they have the best breakfast. I highly recommend staying here!

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...
