If you need to be in Orono for University of Maine, you can't beat the location of this hotel. The rooms are charming with the bear themed styles and the beds are comfortable. The staff is always friendly and helpful. My one criticism is that the restaurant never seems to be open. We've stayed here three times and it's never been open, not even for room service which is unfortunate because after a long day of driving to get there the last thing you want to do is get in the car and drive to find food. Also there are no gluten free options for the free continental breakfast. However if you need to stay in the area, this is a lovely option to get away from the chain hotels.
