We had a great stay at Ohio University Inn! Scott Kovalick and all his staff were amazing!! Attentive and friendly, they were helpful in every way. The rooms were perfect, impeccably clean, comfy bed and we had a great night’s sleep. We ate at Cutler's restaurant and the food was amazing!!! Loved dining on the outdoor patio. We had the... More

My son just finished Sophomore year at OU. I have stayed at several places in the vicinity of OU, and not by choice. If I could stay at the OU INN and Conference Center every time, it would make all my visits to OU perfect (reservations go fast). The moment I walk in the door, the front desk says Hi.... More

We stayed at the Inn graduation weekend and were greeted by Megan on our arrival. Not only was Megan extremely helpful and accommodating, she was welcoming and very polite making the stay an enjoyable one. She took the time to look up everything we needed and never made us feel like we were being a burden. The hotel looks like... More

The Ohio University Inn and Conference center is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are big, clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is super friendly. There is plenty of room in the workout facility. Machines are in good order and there is plenty of towels and water. There is a wonderful sidewalk from the hotel that leads... More

I recently stayed at Ohio University Inn . I love being so close to campus so I did pay the ridiculous amount for Moms weekend. Upon checking in as soon as I walked in the room I noticed the mirror was dirty on the closet door . Then I noticed the room had not been dusted (very dusty)and there was... More

My Husband and I recently stayed at Ohio University Inn to attend a event at the OU Campus. The location is excellent if you need to be close to OU. We had dinner at the Bar our first evening which has a bar menu, as well as the menu for Cutler's Restaurant which is on-site as well. I had the... More

We stayed one night. Clean hotel very close/easy access to Ohio University. They were renovating some rooms and front of hotel (March, 2015) so minor inconvenience. The desk and restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful. The OU Inn has several buildings so request main building to be close to lobby and/or restaurant or pub. The patio rooms are nice...

Stayed here for one night. Was a little cramped for a family of 4. Beds were OK, but made me miss my bed at home. Walls seemed to be a little thin. The layout of the hotel was odd. Seemed like there wasn't an easy way to get from lobby to front desk.

I am an Ohio University alumni and this was not my first stay at the OU Inn. There are many other chain hotel options in the area, but this facility is the closest to campus. You can easily walk to the trial that goes along the Hocking River, the football stadium, basketball arena, baseball fields and West Green. The rest... More
