The staff was impeccable. Room service came faster than expected. I was pleased with the nice clean room. I would never stay anywhere else. Definitely coming back again! I highly recommend this hotel to any visitor of Athens Ohio/Ohio university, walkable all major places!!

I have come to visit Ohio University many times and stayed at a variety of places being an OU Alumni. However, after my most current stay, I am very confident to say that staying at the Ohio University Inn was one of the best hotel experiences I have had while traveling, especially in Athens.

Spent 2 nights for our future daughter's orientation at OU. Nice quiet room but far from main lobby. Lovely decor but do not understand the bathroom !! Water pressure is more like a sprinkler and the glass doors are very dated. Lovely pool and common area for relaxing in the evenings. Super convenient to OU but now we were notified...

The hotel is clean and close to Ohio University, which were my primary goals. That said, the layout is a little unique. To get to my room, I could go up the elevator or main staircase to the second floor and then go down a few steps OR take a back staircase up one flight directly to my room (I...

We are staying 3 nights to attend a wedding in town. We appreciated the coffee maker and frig in the room and the friendly service. It's a lovely hotel -- a quaint feel; yet our room had a large, modern bathroom. Conveniently located and is the place to stay when visiting the University.

If my child went to school here this is where I would stay. Perfect location with a pub and strong coffee in the morning. Rooms and bath were clean. Free Wi-Fi. All the comforts of home. I walked to Court Street at night to catch the local activities. I think it was only a mile.

Finding a place in Athens can be difficult, sometimes. You won't go wrong staying here. This place is a staple. The grounds are well kept, and the rooms nicely appointed. I didn't not go to the bar, but my parents did, and they said that they close up at midnight (unless something has changed recently). Plenty of parking, and centrally...
