Traditional furnishings in a well maintained building. Clean room, friendly staff, quality linens, decent breakfast. Just minutes from University of Maine. Only drawback: you can hear people walking on floor in room above due to wooden floors.

This is my second, but not last time at the University Inn. The rooms are spacious and clean, with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. The pool is clean and generally quiet, and the outdoor bar is a great way to relax poolside. The fitness room leave a lot to be desired, but it serves in a pinch. The riverside... More
