Overall visit was great! The front desk staff were friendly, welcoming & quick to get me on my way. Support staff helped bring my bags to the room. Room was very big; seperate spaces for bed & living room. Also included nice patio rooms overlooking a beautiful courtyard. Awesome steaks and seafood at Cutler's, the hotel's onsite restaurant. Extremely pleased... More

I wasn't sure what to expect here. There aren't a lot of hotels around OU. however, I've always been pleased with any University-sponsored hotel that I've stayed at. We were here for parents weekend, lucky winners of the lottery. The location was ideal - we felt very safe walking to and from campus, even late at night. There's a tunnel... More

With a name like Ohio University Inn and Conference Center you might expect a top quality hotel but this was an average hotel with an unusual lay out. Most of the rooms are located in a separate building and you have to take an elevator off the lobby to get to the walkway to take you to the separate building,... More

If you're visiting a student at Ohio University, you cannot beat the location of this hotel. I always find it to be clean and comfortable. I prefer staying here above any other hotel in the area, but honestly the Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn are comparable. The Ohio University Inn & Conference Center gets extra points for the restaurant.

We visited my daughter's boyfriend, who is a freshman at OU. I wanted a hotel close to campus so I didn't have to drive them everywhere. I read other reviews on TripAdvisor and also saw the photos of this inn. I loved the way the patio looked and hoped to get a room on the main floor so I could... More

We stayed here for a week and it was a perfect place. We also had a pet with us and this location is pet friendly. It is in walking distance to Ohio University. (5 minute walk) The staff were all very friendly and always helpful

I stayed one night at the Inn and am glad it was just the one night. The women who checked me in was very friendly and helpful so I expected the same throughout my stay. I had a room with a small balcony that overlooked the pool. The entire experience went down hill fast when I went to look at... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your stay with us. I am very disappointed with the lack of bathroom cleanliness you experienced while staying, as well as how it was handled when it was brought to our attention. We strive to provide nothing less than the most clean, safe and well maintained hotel Athens has to... More

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
