Perfect place to stay of you are visiting Kenyon College. Clean, modern, efficient, comfortable. A step above many small town college hotels. Good food and knowledgeable staff. Unbelievably perfect location close to Kenyon. Very hard to get a reservation over parents' weekend or graduation.

My daughter is a student at Kenyon. I have stayed at the Inn twice now: the first time when we checked out the school; and the second time when I dropped her off. The rooms are large and comfortable and in the middle of campus. The staff is gracious and welcoming. After hours and hours of driving to get to... More

Spent one night here this past weekend while attending a wedding at Kenyon College and absolutely loved the Inn. Staff are delightful, friendly and welcoming. Rooms are spotless, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The dining room has a great Sunday brunch and the staff could not have been nicer. Really lovely place and a very restful experience. Glad it has... More

We had a party of 14 and the restaurant provided us with the Paul Newman Room. It was a wonderful private room where we were provided excellent service. The menu was preselected so I didn't see the full menu. The items on our menu were all excellent...salmon, steak, and pasta dishes were enjoyed by the various members of the dinner... More

Our room had two very comfortable queen beds and seemed recently renovated. Very, very comfortable and clean accommodations. Dining room is small, but our breakfast was very good. One of the best small inns I have been to in a long time.

For a hotel that does not really have any competition, they do a good job. The service is very nice, the wireless is great and the room is very modern and clean. A bit on the expensive side but really cannot complain. Was here to tour the college and you cannot find a better spot. More enjoyable than staying outside... More

About 8 of us came here for a work luncheon and we had great service and the food was very good. We only used the dining facilities and did not stay at the Inn. The setting is very pretty coming in with all the trees surrounding the walkway. We have reserved this on two occasions now and both times were... More

Visited this hotel numerous times over the past year whilst working in Mount Vernon. Despite being the furthest hotel from the office i was working at, the journey into Mount Vernon is worth it to stay here. Excellent hotel, rooms are brilliant, food and drink is good, leisure facilities at the local University are excellent and lovely local area to... More

Great inn, spacious quiet rooms, good bedding and especially clean. Location can't be beat for things Kenyon - walk to all. The restaurant is also quite good, with an ambitious menu (if a bit pricey for OH). Good choice for a special dinner. Relax with a cocktail on the front lawn and a drink in the bar after dinner.

I cannot remember the last time I used a real key to enter a hotel room! You do have to promise to return the keys when you check out, but it adds to the authenticity of this charming hotel. It has all the usual room amenities, free WIFI, Keurig, hidden refrigerator and a pretty quiet A/C unit that we actually... More
