We stayed in Knights Inn because it was the only room available during Ohio University's graduation weekend. We were delighted with the room and the hospitable management. It was clean, comfortable, affordable, and conveniently located to both campus and Rte 50. While the hotel looks like it has not been updated in decades, everything was clean and in good repair....

Room was clean, staff were very friendly and the breakfast was plentiful. No problems at all. Parking is right outside your room door. Access to Ohio University is perfect. All along East State Street there are many restaurants and shopping areas.

Not the cleanest place but then again we were looking for value and we found it. It's half the price of surrounding hotels and the rate was negotiable. Plus is they had free breakfast. More or less just a crash pad.

Great little inn, no holi-dome, but that wasn't what I was looking for, clean (a bit dated! Loved the pink porcelin sink fixtures in my bathroom! lol) room, free breakfast, easy access to town and shopping. Backs right up to the Hocking-Adena Bikeway so I was able to park the car and ride my bike in for most of my... More

Stayed at the Knights Inn in Athens and was pleasantly surprised. My previous experiences with Knights Inns in other cites have not been particularly good. In Athens, however, there are some new rooms built behind the old (original) building. These new rooms are spacious, but spartan. Most of all, they were clean. While I would not pick this motel as...

This is a lovely, no frills, roadside motel convenient to Ohio University and close to several places to eat and shop. We have stayed in the same room twice, now, and it was clean and comfortable, with a bed so large that we had to laugh. But all was clean, including the sparkling bathroom.. The complimentary breakfast had ample choices... More

We took our high school senior for a visit to Ohio University.

Clean room and bathroom. Really liked the free wi-fi and fridge/microwave in our room. Great value for the price and on a busy weekend. Good breakfast food choices. Only complaints are the lack of highchairs and drinking water (hand wash sink only) in the continental breakfast area.

Admittedly, I wasn't sure what to expect, buy my wife and I were very happy with the facility. Rooms were quite large for that style of property; with a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. Everything was clean and comfortable. Sure, it's outdated, but frankly I liked the retro feel of it all. It's a college town, people shouldn't expect a... More
