    Fabulous

    Breakfast was good exercise room.good overall value.staff was very nice.location was perfect for our needs.felt safe and secure.

    Outside pool is always closed when I come.wish they had hot tub or maybe sauna. The tv picture quality is low even with the modern flat screens should look into Dish H.D.

    liked having the pool heated for my daughter. last year it wasn't working. Also was very nice and letting my special needs son join us at the last minute cause he was having a meltdown with his group so he came back with me and was better and able to do his events on Saturday at the Special Olympics.

    I think this is an excellent Inn - There was more available than I could have ever imagined and the staff exceptional.

    the room, location and service were great.

    I thought it was odd to have to pay for extra coffee pods for in-room coffee. Not the end of the world, though.

    The whole experience was great. We used to stay at the black bear, but now we will stay here...much better.

    We were in town visiting our daughter at UMaine and loved being so close to campus. The bed was comfortable, we had a nice view of the river and the bathroom looked updated. The complimentary cheese and wine hour in the lobby was a nice touch!

    The room wasn't as clean as I would have liked. There was a layer of dust on the furniture, around floor boards and fake flowers. The outdated rug looked hastily vacuumed at best. I found the drop cealing and cheap mounding unappealing.

    I enjoyed the closeness to to venue I attended while in the area. The staff was very helpful, and even called me to let me know I had left an item in our room, which they held until I could return to get it. My room was very comfortable, and pleasant. I will stay at the University Inn again.

    The bed was incredibly comfortable and provided an excellent night's sleep! Sadly, I overslept and didn't get to take advantage of breakfast other than coffee. But it looked lovely and is very much appreciated as being included in the room rate.

    Happy we had the view of the river. Would like to be able to request that on line when booking. Easy access for what we were there for.

    The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the pool was the nicest we've ever experienced with its depth, cleanliness and clarity. My granddaughter is an avid swimmer, has been exposed to many hotel pools and without hesitation gives yours an A plus!!! Thank you for an excellent hotel experience. We will definitely be back.

    The only thing I would suggest changing is the strength of your coffee - it was much too weak for me! Otherwise no complaints. I especially appreciated your choice of yogurt, healthy and good.
