We stayed at this hotel last October for five nights. It was our second destination in the US, after having just spent a very hectic five days in Manhattan New York.
The hotel staff were very warm and friendly, giving us advice on local places of interest. We were in Orono visiting our daughter who was undertaking a semester student exchange at the University of Maine, for which the hotel was ideally situated being a ten minute car ride away.
The first thing that struck us was the size of the room. It was huge ! Along with two double beds, this room was very comfortable.
The dining room was quite small for the size of the hotel, and breakfast was a self service buffet arrangement, and was fairly limited in choice. We had one evening meal in the hotel, which was good. The only downside was that there was no hotel bar, which we thought was unusual. However, we overcame that obstacle by nipping over the road to the supermarket.
Overall though, a very enjoyable stay.
