"We found this terrific hotel quite by accident! What a fabulous location and beautiful scenery. We even had the pleasure of watching two deer grazing in the field in the early morning! Our daughter is a freshman at the U Maine Orono and we could walk to the university to visit her. The local stores and restaurants are also in walking distance.
Customer service is #1. The staff go out of their way to assist you and are very pleasant. They are eager to share information about shopping; offer excellent suggestions for places to dine and places to visit in the area.
In addition to the comfy rooms, the Inn offers a complimentary breakfast (cereal, muffins, bacon, eggs, bagels, coffee, juice) to start your day. The pool and pool area was very well kept and a great place to socialize.
They also have a "frequent stay card" which will get stamped at each stay and we'll earn a free night along the way.
I would highly recommend the University Inn Academic Suites!! It is a home away from home except you don't have to do any work! We enjoyed it so much that we are returning in Septemeber and for a week in October."
