Second visit to this hotel. The upgrades (not sure when finished) are impressive. Nice clean feel to the place. Room was great, nice clean fresh new sheets. Complimentary water and coffee was a nice touch. The TV channel listing is a tad outdated, good reception non the less. The free breakfast was good with eggs, bacon and home fries. Other...

The good: spacious room. Breakfast included. Wine in the afternoon. The bad: breakfast is pretty lousy. Headed into town for breakfast. Just too much sugar and white bread. They did serve eggs, bacon, and potatoes, but I just wanted something with fiber. The plus side for vegans is they have almond milk. I just wanted some oatmeal and raisins without...

My room was large and clean, breakfast was pretty good, and the staff was very friendly. They were very accommodating to my requests, even driving me to my car and helping me jump start it. It was pretty great having a room with an awesome view, and the bed was super comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

It took longer than planned to drop my kiddo off at UMaine for the Spring semester, so I made the spontaneous decision at 7:45 p.m. to try and find a room in the area for the night to rest ahead of the 4-5 hour drive home in the morning. I popped in to the Office at the University Inn where...

The University Inn is conveniently located, clean and reasonably priced. They include a decent breakfast and are very friendly. Their renovations have made the property much nicer and we enjoy staying there when visiting Orono.

Clean, large room, breakfast included: not continental (!) more than that. Bravo. Little perks everywhere: bottled water, mints, coffee. Convenient. Visiting UMaine Orono; right there. Stillwater River view. Good, friendly service. Thanks!

We have been staying here since 2013 and liked it very much. We had read about the breakfast spread being awesome and it is true. Good healthy options. Good yummy options too. Good rooms. Pet friendly. You might want a upper floor if you are a light sleeper since you can hear the upstairs occupants walking. If you sleep deep,...

Nice, quiet Inn on the Stillwater River, just outside downtown. While the property screams Mid-Century Motor Court in some ways, the room are large and the facility is very well maintained. Everything else was modern and in line with other larger business hotel chains.

I have spent 5 nights for work purposes at the University Inn. The room was very big, with all what is needed and very clean. Breakfast was good. Only bad thing was the noise insulation: I could here the TV of the guy beside me like if it was in my bedroom...!
