Our last stay was the best ever! We love the OU Inn & Conference Center. Our room was super clean and the bed was very comfortable. Our housekeeper, Terrace was warm and friendly and did a wonderful job! We had a leisurely dinner in front of the fireplace at Cutler's and tried the new menu. Excellent! It was made even... More

Stayed here while traveling, was recommended by fellow colleagues. The staff was very courteous and the room was very comfortable. One of the best beds I've slept in at a hotel. The manager introduced himself, I thought that was a great touch. The dining experience was great, fast friendly service and very good food. Would definitely recommend and will stay... More

I stayed at the OU Inn the night of my proposal to my girlfriend and it was a wonderful experience! Carrie at the front desk was extremely accommodating of my plans and even set us up in a suite with a bottle of champagne for our special night! I would highly recommend this hotel for any special occasion.

Whenever I'm in Athens I don't even consider other hotels. The location, service, rooms and amenities are the best in town. As Ohio University alumni, my friends and I make routine trips to Athens several times per year. Most recently, on our annual New Years Eve trip, we had an excellent stay as usual. The hotel is walking distance to... More

The OU Inn staff were personable and polite, as well as helpful. The catered food was excellent and plentiful. The upgrades to the property made the rooms very inviting. An indoor pool would be the coup de grace.
