The breakfast is hearty,healthy and presented so nicely ( did I mention included in the rate !) The rooms are so clean... More

We really enjoyed our stay there. The rooms were updated and clean and the staff were great too. Ask for a room facing the pool/river, the sun sets on that side and the deck makes for a nice place to sit in the early evening. Although we didn't try the pool, it looked pretty sweet as well. Breakfast was acceptable,... More

The Inn is a special place .Many of us go back year after year and have gotten to know the other guests and staff. This is a favorite haunt for uMaine parents. This past weekend I was up with my dog ( they have a limited number of dog friendly rooms) Our dog is an energetic 2 year old English... More

We stayed here while taking our son to visit U of Maine. It is very close to campus and would be very convenient is he goes to school in Orono. It is also a short walk from the downtown "village" area of Orono where there are several restaurants. On the downside, it didn't quite meet expectations. To start, my wife... More

Placed as it is on the corner of town & gown, the University Inn’s location is top notch. You can walk to town for dinner, or to campus. There's a hiking/biking trail is just across the river too. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with in-room refrigerators. The entire facility is non-smoking. The York Peppermint Patties are a nice touch.

My husband and I have been staying here for 3 years now when we visit our son who attends the University of Maine. The staff are friendly and... More

We picked this hotel due to the location on our way to Nova Scotia. It is easy to find. Our room was a nice size, but smelled very stuffy and like uncleaned carpet when we arrived. I think a hotel of this caliber shouldn't have pilled sheets....it would make the stay more pleasant. A nice collection of TV channels was... More

We stayed overnight while dropping our child off at UMaine. Well landscaped, clean pool, nice river view from balcony, clean common areas and rooms. New paint and Keurig coffee makers since last there. Free continental breakfast and coffee.

Stayed a few days in this charming Inn with comfortable rooms and the friendliest of staff. Two queen sized beds and a good breakfast add to the value. House keeping was a wee bit uneven with water bottles provided on some days and not on others. Otherwise an absolutely wonderful stay.
