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... More

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... More

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... More

My husband and I stayed here on a roadtrip in October. The staff was friendly but the room needed a facelift. The mattress was soft and the pillows were flat. The room was clean, though. The noise from the road traffic right next to the hotel was annoying. Their continental breakfast consisted of coffee and some packaged mini muffins. We... More

I visited during the Ohio Brew Week in Athens, June, 2013. I was looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay for a night.This place was just what I was looking for. There are no big frills, swimming pool, exercise room, etc. etc.etc. But I wasn't looking for a bunch of extras, anyway. The place is obviously old, but it... More

I stayed here last weekend for an event in downtown Athens. The hotels was $60 after tax and was worth every bit of it. I cranked the AC up and room got really cold. The room was clean and staff was friend. The cab ride was only $6 to down town. Very happy with my stay!

Very surprised by the Hotel Inn Athens! Very affordable compared to the other hotels in area..which are very limited. Manager/Owner at desk, could not have been more polite! Room very clean! A bit dated here & there..but nothing to be concerned about. Unlike 1 prior review, zero bugs in the room. I will definitely return to this hotel next time... More

The title sums it up. This retro-motel reminds me of trips with my parents. The room was clean and beds comfortable. That's all I needed. The owners are very nice. Free coffee and muffins in the morning - this is the best value in Athens, if you just need a nice place to stay. Extras include, small fridge, iron, blow... More

I stayed on a recent Sunday evening, paying $45 for a single. Very close to Route 32 traffic; keeping the air conditioner on the fan setting created sufficient white noise so the traffic noise wasn't a problem. Room was basic; everything worked. Agreeable place if you're primarily looking for a bed. Breakfast offerings were coffee and prefab muffins; didn't have... More
