Love the patio overlooking the river! Easy walk to several restaurants. Enjoyed the grab and go breakfast Staff was welcoming and professional Our room was clean and comfortable and the housekeeping staff took excellent care of us. Great stay in every way!

Apparently only part of the hotel is pet friendly. They put us on the second floor and when we went to walk our dog the next morning we were told that she was not allowed and we had to leave her at our families house for the rest of our stay. We are very understanding of the importance of masks. Our room was right next to the exit and there was one time my boyfriend did not wear a mask to go out side (meaning he did not have one to come back to the room.) A male worker not only rudely pointed it out to him as he was leaving as well as when he came back in, but also felt a need to call me in the room to rudely inform me of my boyfriend’s mistake.

It was a clean hotel I love the people that was working in the front desk If I’m ever towards that end I will stay there again thank you

Clean, warm, quiet, comfy beds, friendly, nice breakfast, plowed/shoveled outside

The river was nice to look at as well as the grounds. Walking distance to the breweries and downtown.

Great location and super friendly staff. Great to have breakfast included and the pool was a super feature!!

This place was a lot nicer than I had expected it to be from the pictures! The toiletries were fancier than a normal hotel. The rooms were great. We had a view of the river, which was beautiful!

I was very pleased with my stay at the University Inn. Clean rooms with a wonderful view of the river, a hearty complimentary breakfast, and friendly/helpful staff. I highly recommend staying going to the University Inn if you’re staying in Orono (or Old Town, Veazie, etc.).

Nice location on the River... our room had a pretty view of the pool and river.... very dog friendly!

Always a pleasant stay at the University Inn when ever we visit Orono friends.

great and friendly staff from breakfast workers to front check in staff to maids! All were friendly and helpful. The only concern we had was the noise from outside rooms. You could hear through walls and rooms were not very insulated from outside noised (hallyways, doors opening and closing), etc
