My wife and I were unable to find a reasonably priced room in Bangor, which surprised the hell out of me, so I widened my search to Orono. Much to my surprise, The University Inn was modernized and slightly upscale from it's former days as the University Motor Inn. Our room were comfortable although the bathroom was quite small. Bed...

We stayed here on our overnight drive from Nova Scotia and I should say this hotel is an excellent option to stay. I booked this for a cheap deal on priceline and wasn't expecting much. However the hotel was better than many hotels I visited. Rooms are very spacious and had two double beds. Includes a decent morning breakfast and... More

We went to Orono to help our youngest child, who is attending UMaine, pack up and come home for the summer. We love the remodel - everything is newer/more modern - but the staff and overall experience is the same - excellent in every way. We love that it's quiet, comfortable and convenient. The complimentary breakfast in the morning is... More

I always enjoy my stay at the Inn. The rooms are comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is conveniently located between the university and the center of town. Even with the renovations going on, the was a sense of order and comfort.

Stayed here for the first time in three years of traveling to Orono. Terrific value. Hotel was very clean and staff was very attentive. They are in the process of significant renovations but the staff did everything possible to minimize disruption to guests. Renovated rooms are quite nice.

I try to stay at the University Inn whenever I am in Orono visiting or picking up/dropping off my daughter at UMaine. It is very convenient (walking distance to the school and to downtown Orono, reasonable rates and recently refurbished. The rooms are clean and quiet and the buffet breakfast is a great way to start the day. The staff... More

I travel a lot and didn't expect much from a small town hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. The whole hotel feels very fresh and new. I had a king room and it was very nice. Comfortable and very contemporary. I will stay here again when I come back for sure. Staff is helpful and really friendly.

Many improvements but the hotel keeps that homey treatment. Staff was also able to get me a room late in the day on a busy weekend. They actually called me on standby...!!! As always, the location is perfect.

Stayed during renovation and it was a very good time. Didn't like that my room was next to the door because of the excessive noise, or the fairly large step out of the building, however it was marked accordingly. The beds were large and comfortabl . There was a keurig and coffee, breakfast had an abundance of food and the... More

Nice sized rooms, recently renovated with paint and carpet. Decent breakfast, good selections, and easy parking. My kids loved the amenities in the room, most notably the vanity kit. I didn't use the wifi, having driven for 7 hours all I wanted was a bed, but the teenagers said it was faster than other places we've been. All in all... More
