The beds & pillows were very comfortable, room was very clean- breakfast was good- and the restaurant on site is amazing... Overall a GREAT stay! If I had any complaints it would be the noisy outdated bathroom vent & small amount of shampoo/conditioner left- day 2 it was not even replaced when less then 1/2 full

The location is perfect and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There is a nice lounge for refreshments and the food at the restaurant was very good. My room had a balcony view of a beautiful courtyard and pool.The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We love staying at the OU Inn when we come into town. When I stayed last week I realized that I forgot my hair straightener. After working out I went to the front desk and told MacKenzie what I did and she told me that she will call her friend and bring hers to the hotel for me!! I had... More

My fiance and I had a WONDERFUL stay at this hotel. I am such a (germaphobe), so I was extremely pleased at how clean our room was. The staff was great and always had smiling faces. I also LOVED the outside patio. It was great to sit around the fire pit at night. Very peaceful. The highlight of my fiancé's... More

Our stay was excellent. Every person we came into contact with was friendly and helpful. The rooms were impeccably neat and clean. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor patio with a firepit it has a cozy resort feel.

We stayed at the Ohio University Inn and conference center for our daughters college orientation. Room was very clean. No weird smells. The lights are super bright, I wish they had dimmer switches. Bathroom is big, but glass shower and sink combined so only one person getting ready at a time. Quiet. Convenient to campus. Did not eat there. Cute... More

I serve as visiting professor at O U and am on campus one week each month. The O U Inn had become a "home away from home" for me. Staff from all of the departments (housekeeping, front desk, restaurant, etc.) know me by name and serve up my preferences before I ask. I now know their names as well -... More

I have stayed at the OU Inn multiple times for Mom's Weekend and have never been disappointed. The location to Ohio University is great...walking distance! The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the service is exceptional!

If you're going to stay in Athens, be it for a Parents' Weekend, Alumni Weekend, or just for visiting the school, the OU Inn is the place to stay. Great staff, good food, and a location that is a couple minutes from uptown while still being removed enough from the city to be able to relax if you want to.
