We were travelling around with no fixed agenda and taking our chances on accommodation. Beautiful hotel with friendly staff and a great restaurant. Price was reasonable and our room very nice with a patio area. Really enjoyed the stay here.

My husband and I visited our son in Athens and stayed at our go-to hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly front desk person. Our room was very clean and nicely appointed with everything we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the glass enclosed shower was fabulous! We attended a Wine Dinner in the Ball Room which was...

My family and I were in Athens to attend a University event. We arrived after 9:00 PM and were greeted warmly by the front desk staff. Loved the big screen tv in our room! We ate breakfast in the dining room & enjoyed it very much, especially the coffee. the wait staff was so friendly and helpful.

If you're looking for original and super clean, with lots of thought behind every detail, this is the place to go! The staff was authentically super nice as well! I would even say this could be a destination all on it's own, b/c it feels so good.

We had three rooms with 6 guys and enjoyed every aspect. The staff was friendly and attentive and the property was beautiful. Can't wait to go back to Athens and visit with these wonderful people again.

This is a very solid choice and very convenient for a visit to campus. Rooms are clean, although certainly nothing special. Fairly small bathroom. But everything was clean. Configuration a little weird in that you have to go outside the hotel to get to some of the buildings. They have a decent lobby and a decent restaurant. There is also...

You simply can't match the Ohio University Inn for comfort and class. Just past the Convocation Center, right off the highway, this greatly expanded and updated hotel was a lovely location for a group of college friends visiting OU for a reunion. We were able to walk Uptown and through campus. The young staff was extremely professional and friendly. For...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on February 25, 2017 for one night. Everything was fine until we woke up the next morning and my husband thought he saw a bug on the bed. So we didn't pay that much attention so we began to pack up our things and then the both of us notice another bug...

Enjoyed our visit. Accommodations, hospitality and service were excellent. The University Inn was a welcomed site when we arrived after 8 hours of driving from North Carolina. Starbucks was a welcome site as well.
