The owners are typically "in the store." Staff is efficient, friendly, and happy (something I look for in establishments wherever I go). Facilities are clean, tidy, and convenient to the University of Maine. Whether you're at the University for a conference or just traveling through, we highly recommend University Inn and Academic Suites for your stay in the lovely town...

This privately owned hotel had been recommended to us by friends and we are grateful. Attractive rooms overlooking the Stillwater River, complimentary wine and cheese in the evening, excellent cooked breakfasts and a fine swimming pool were some of the comforts of this hotel. Plus the service was very courteous.

We only stayed one night, but it was great! Very relaxing hotel. Highly recommend this place. Clean and had a fridge and microwave. We didn't have time to use the pool, but it looked really nice. Nice and close to the campus if you are going for something on campus.

Clean comfortable rooms. They pay attention to the flowers and landscaping here too and it is appreciated. Great location midway between town and U Maine campus. A few canoes and kayaks are available to rent at reasonable rates. Full breakfast makes this an excellent value.

The rooms are clean, plenty of towels. soaps, lotion, shampoo, conditioner bath gel,etc. I went to Holland, Belgium, and Luxembourg in April for 12 days and only one hotel had soap,lotion, shampoo and conditioner. Hurray for this USA Inn. Everyone is friendly and helpful all our question were answered. We are looking forward to staying here, next year.

We stopped here at the last minute, too tired to drive to our next stop. We were amazed at the beautiful view of the river, the large wooded area for wandering around, and the lovely clean room. Definitely will stay here again! More affordable then Bangor and towns closer to Bar Harbor.

I lived in Orono growing up and always wondered how it would be to stay at the University Motor Inn for the night. I wound up moving away from home but when I came back to visit I finally decided to stay a night here! I must say it was good for the price and exceeded expectations! Truly the Inn...

I stayed us one night for my daughter's UMAINE orientation. There were pleasant surprises around every corner. From the lovely view of the grounds and river, complimentary wine and cheese, sparkling clear pool, clean & comfortable room, to a full breakfast, this little hotel is a doing a lot of things better than almost aNY other in this price range....

My husband and I stayed here one night on our way to Canada. The rooms were comfortable and well-appointed. Our room had a balcony looking out to the Stillwater River. At 5:00 they held a small wine reception and from 7-9 served a hot breakfast. Our rooms had a microwave, a fridge and a Keurig machine. The inn is walking...
