We stayed here for one night prior to my daughter touring U. Maine. The staff was so welcoming and friendly, we instantly felt safe and comfortable. The room was very comfortable (especially the beds) and we had a lovely private balcony overlooking the Stillwater River. Breakfast the next morning was more than you could ask for, eggs, bacon, waffles, danish,... More

I love staying in this "little bit of home" when I'm in Orono. The owner takes great pains to make the place homey and welcoming, with lots of homegrown decorations and a gigantic Christmas tree in the lobby! The staff are friendly and you can tell they like working there. Can't beat the hot breakfast (think, a mountain of unlimited... More

We trusted the online reviews and booked at the University Inn for our college visit trip. We came up the night before, checked in at midnight with no problem. Bed was soft and comfortable. Hotel decorated for Christmas beautifully. Pleasantly surprised at the variety and quantity of breakfast- more bacon than my son could even eat. Staff were friendly and... More

Great full service breakfast and nice clean rooms. Would definitely stay there again and it's less than 5 minutes from Downtown Orono. Pat's pizza is a hop, skip and a jump away. My only complaint would be thin walls, but some noise is to be expected in a crowded hotel

This is my hotel of choice on Orono,ME. Great location, very attractive and very well maintained. Breakfast is a must! Staff and owner are great people!! I always make it a point to book a room here when visiting U of Maine. AAA discounts. They let me bring my pet fish.

We were in Orono for a football game. The stay at the University Inn was very convenience and only a few minutes away from the Alfond Staduim. Customer Service was excellent, food delicious and hospitality A+. The Inn is in the heart of the small town and nice restaurant to choose from as well.

My In- Laws, My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past weekend during the U or Richmond vs U of Maine game. It's not a huge hotel, but offered exceptional hospitality. The hotel is with in one mile of the U of Maine and the prices do reflect that. But they offer a discount if you have your... More

We were in Orono to visit our daughter and the convenience to her and the UMaine campus was wonderful. The only disappointment was that we took our daughter to breakfast & therefore we missed what looked like a wonderful breakfast at the hotel!

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
