We were at the Ohio University Inn for my niece's wedding and had a wonderful time. We had a room that had a small patio that stepped out into the patio and fire pit and I highly recommend asking for that if possible. The staff were great and accommodating. This was our first trip to Athens and OU and we... More

My girlfriend, an Ohio alum, and I decided to stay at the University Inn on the way to her high school reunion. Neither of us had ever stayed at the Inn before, so we weren't sure what to expect. The staff was very friendly and accomodating from the initial check-in to our departure. We had a minor incident with a... More

We took a short visit to Athens. We stayed two days a nice little family time trip mother with two teen daughters. This hotel only has a outdoor pool which was disappointing since it was a odd cooler chilly weekend for July. Our check in was the usual welcome. The restaurant was pretty good, slightly pricy but tastey. Our waitress... More

We paid $170 for a one night stay during orientation and was placed in a small cramped room in the back of hotel. Room near laundry room and had a dingy, dark hall way with a step going into hall way. Rooms need updated. Way way to Much for the room. Hampton inn, holiday inn are both newer with breakfast...

We had a great stay! The staff and service is excellent. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We were there for a college tour for my daughter and only stayed one night. We both wished that we had been able to stay an extra night because we were having such a wonderful time. If she decides on OU we will... More

My wife and I stayed here over the weekend. Everyone we encountered at the hotel was extremely friendly and did everything in their power to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The room was nice (especially as opposed to some of the other options in town), and it's in a great location with campus either being a short drive or... More

The service was so welcoming as we arrived late at night. We were very tired and our three little ones were wiped out when we got to our room and we were relieved to have a very clean and comfortable place to rest our heads. We will surely stay at the OU Inn again when in the area. Highly recommended.

Went there for a wedding. Room and service was excellent. The wedding reception was held at the Inn and was very well done on the patio. Came from a big city and was pleasantly surprised at the service for being in a smaller town.

My daughter got married at The OU Inn and we couldn't have asked for a better day! The staff was so friendly and courteous and extremely professional in every aspect of the planning and execution. We stopped by the tavern for a quick drink before the rehearsal dinner and our bartender was very knowledgable and friendly. The suite we got... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Ohio University Inn & Conference Ctr. The rooms were very clean, updated and comfortable. Almost like home, but better! I recommend this facility to anyone. We were in town for a wedding.
