I have been staying at University Inn twice a year for the past several years. I am impressed with their hospitality, food, upgrades, and a genuine caring for their guests. Best yet, they are tucked in the village of Orono. Perfect

As described on TripAdvisor. Motel was very clean and nicely decorated, Bed comfortable. Price reflected the proximity to the University of Maine. At $140+ per night, I could stay in Bangor for half that rate and drive 8 miles to the University. I stayed here for one night because I had a 7am meeting the next day

Overall, I was very impressed with the University Inn. I was in the area for a conference at the Wells Conference Center at the University of Maine. The University Inn was not only wonderfully close (or as we say here in Maine, "In spittin' distance) to UMaine, but it was also right outside downtown Orono, giving me the chance to... More

We loved this Inn - It's quaint, quiet, well cared for and clean. The rooms have Keurig machines, the breakfast is great and the grounds are beautiful! The pool, although we didn't use it, is very nice. Staff is friendly and check in/out was easy. We stayed here while on a shopping trip to Bangor and found it much more... More

I stay here every time I go to Orono. It is walking distance to Pat's and the other Orono restaurants. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. The continental breakfast has a nice variety of options.

Not only is the University Inn clean and comfortable but the staff and owner are among the friendliest you will ever encounter! It really feels like home away from home and I look forward to returning there for every visit to UMaine - a real gem!

This location is very clean. Decor is dated. Breakfast is downstairs and is basic --similar to a Hampton Inn --but it is included. Staff are nice (college students?). You can walk into town and some restaurants for the hotel. Fine place to stay if you are visiting the University.

Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Our room was large and quiet, though could do with better lighting. There was a hairdryer, fridge and freezer in the room. Breakfast was good and included hot options. It also started early which was useful to us as we needed an early start. i would use this hotel again.

The University Inn is an excellent location to stay to visit the University. Our room was clean and comfortable, a quick drive to the University or Orono to grab something to eat. Our room had a beautiful view of the river and bridge to Orono. Bangor is a few minutes away to eat or shop.The staff are so friendly and... More

Nice, clean room. Beautiful sitting on the deck in the fall. Walls were a little thin. Overall....nice stay. It included a hot breakfast which was a nice perk. Coffee and Poland Spring water in the room.
