Not sure why I would rave about the place, it will only make getting reservations that much more difficult, but University Inn is my first choice whenever I need to be up at UMaine. It is conveniently located just around the corner from the campus and within walking distance of the center of Orono. The rooms have been recently redecorated,... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The pool was a surprise we did not expect to have! The pool side bar was fun and relaxing. Very clean rooms and a delicious breakfast to start the day. I would recommend this inn to anybody who is visiting the Orono area. Very reasonably priced as well.

Once again, I experienced an enjoyable stay at University Inn Academic Suites. From check-in to breakfast, I just love coming here every time I am in the area! Tracey and her staff excel in making this place so inviting!

This is the most convenient place to stay when visiting UMaine. Very clean. Great complimentary breakfast and ample convenient parking. Walk over the short bridge into little town for a nice dinner. Lovely lake views.

As always it was a lovely stay. The only problem was the air conditioning. There was a quick response both nights, but it is a little irritating. But a great stay non the less. The new wine and cheese complimentary offer in the evening was also a nice touch! The rooms are very clean! The breakfast is free, and I'd... More

Very convenient place to stay with a family. Great view on riverside, tasty breakfasts, nice, helpful staff. The key to the patio door is very cool, you feel like at home. A pool is extraordinary pleasant thing during the hot days. Next time we'll visit our son at MCI we'd definitely come here.

We returned to the area for more college visits, and stayed again with the University Inn. We stayed upstairs to avoid overhead noise, and had a parking lot view instead of the river, but the room was even nicer than the one I stayed in last time. The staff was friendly and flexible. Absolutely recommended, and will return next time... More

friendly staff, wonderful room, soft, fluffy towels that actually soak up moisture! Fridge/microwave and many other things not required but much appreciated. Being offered the key to the patio door for the drive-up room was really appreciated, didn't have to go in through lobby to open room.

Quiet, immaculate hotel overlooking expansive, well kept grounds, clean pool and river. Room and beds comfortable, hot breakfast excellent, staff courteous and friendly. A few pet rooms available and complimentary wine and cheese at 5pm. An unusual find!

We stayed for one night while touring U Maine and enjoyed it very much! The Inn is very clean, the staff are friendly and accommodating, they even let me switch the breakfast blend coffee in my room to dark roast :-) The food was very good and there was a fun atmosphere at the pool. If I'm ever up that... More
