We had a mix-up with reservations at another area hotel and ended up here with our dog on one day's notice. It ended up working out in our favor. We were warmly greeted and given the keys to our room which, although on the small side, was very, very clean with thoughtful amenities, a comfort bed, and a retro vibe....

The service at the hotel is top notch. Rooms are clean and spacious, bed is very comfortable. TV is updated to current state with lots of channel selections. The decor of the room is a bit outdated, but that's okay. I'm not looking for anything overly fancy when staying overnight anyway. Bathroom is a bit cramped, but that's true with...

You can't find a place with more honest and caring owners /staff. Rooms are clean and the owners/staff go out of there way to satisfy customer .I had left something of great value in the room and the staff called me to return it. Unfortunately I was on the road 6 hours away so they had suggested mailing it. What...

Our room was clean enough but the person working came knocking on our door at 10:30 p.m. to tell us our window was open. Not only did he knock, but he started to unlock the door with a key and started to barge in. We did not feel safe nor did we sleep much at all. We would never stay...

Nothing fancy and very near Route 50 so their is a lot of road noise. Continental breakfast was coffee, Tang and small blueberry muffins. They provided a clean rag for cleaning your shoes, car or bicycle.

I stopped at the Hometown Inn because it was the first place I saw after 19 hours on the road for a visit with my son at OU. From the exterior, it reminds you of the motel your grandparents might have stayed in on their honeymoon in the 50's, so I wasn't expecting much. But even at 2 am, the...

When booking this room I was looking for affordability and cleanliness. This hotel gave both. The friendly, kind, welcoming staff was an added bonus. This was a great choice for our one night stay to do business in the area. Rooms are old fashion.

Its a motel that is clean, comfortable and safe. I've stayed there numerous times, being an Ohio University grad, it is a home away from home, when I'm in Athens. The room has an alarm clock, flat screen/ remote, & refrigerator along w/coffee maker. Bedding, towels, shower etc... are sufficient. It's conveniently located within minutes to the campus, as well...

First of all this is a motel not hotel. They did have an ice machine and microwave out side the room. 2 double beds the air conditioner was loud but tolerable bring your own shampoo and conditioner. You have to pay with a credit card. Close to Ohio university
