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

I have to give this a 5 for value. The place is very clean and the staff was friendly. We arrived at late, 11:00 pm and they did not mind. The rooms are dated but who cares, that gave it a retro feel. They were clean and comfortable. The best hotel you are going to find for $65. If you...

The staff were really nice and helpful. Room was dated, but comfortable and clean. It was surpassingly quiet being close to the highway. Wifi was easy to access and TV had plenty of channels if you wanted to watch.

Room was neat with clean linen. Bed and pillows were ok. Its situated right next to the highway, and unless you look for it, very difficult to spot. Wifi connection was very good and much better than other better hotels I have stayed in. Breakfast was just muffins and coffee. The owners and staff were very nice and helpful.

The room was clean, the tub, sink, and toilets were clean. No complaints about this hotel's cleanliness at least in my room. The bed was comfortable. The window air conditioner worked. The room had a working refrigerator. The room was spacious with a queen-size bed. It did however have insufficient sitting furniture and what was present was old but clean.This...

My husband and I spent one night at the Hometown Inn. We called ahead from the car to make the reservation. The price, with our AAA discount, was $61, including taxes. We didn't know what to expect since the price was so cheap. What a surprise! The room was spotless, especially the bathroom. It is dated, but we don't have...

I regularly use one particular online booking site for my hotels. They have never let me down, until now...Not the type of place I would selected had I seen it first. The odors are almost overwhelming, the room is antiquated and the noise from the traffic outside the hotel is ridiculous! I need wifi and had to ask for the...

I travel a lot and have spent frequent nights at the Hometown Inn in Athens, Ohio. The staff have always been friendly and accommodating to me. I never had a complaint about the cleanliness of the rooms or the comfortableness of the furniture while there. One of the things I like that I did not get at other more expensive...
