I have never heard a floor... More

My girlfriend and I spent two nights here and absolutely loved it. The room was big and clean with a balcony. She loved the pool and the tiki bar which was great. The breakfast was spectacular with waffles, sausage, eggs, home fries plus healthier options like granola and fresh fruit. It is a close walk to town and the staff... More

This was the second visit here when visiting UMO and we plan to return. As mentioned in other reviews, the University Inn has a wonderful staff, both front desk and housekeeping. The rooms have everything needed for a comfortable stay and are immaculate.

Very nice hotel. Extremely clean. The only problem we came upon was that my husband is disabled. No elevators. We were on the 2nd floor, and breakfast and sports center were in the basement. He had manuvour lots of stairs.

Everything is clean and looks freshly refurbished. The pool area is really lovely looking out over the river. It is an older building - I could hear noise from the hall pretty easily, but it wasn't bothersome. Excellent Direct TV - tons of stations and several HBO. Staff was really nice and the breakfast is good - scrammbled eggs and... More

Our daughter attends U of Maine so we regularly travel up to Orono. It is a convenient and enjoyable place to stay. Staff is nice and the new breakfast facilities are clean and the food is good. We brought our dogs and we had a convenient room on the first floor.
