Fantastic hotel, best in Athens. Stayed there on several occassions and was blown away by the professional staff and the level of customer service. Hotel is newly renovated with beautiful decor. Rooms are clean and very well maintained. Really enjoyed the outdoor fire pit. Was a nice get away after moving our son into OU. Christine with the front desk... More

My husband and I stayed here a couple of years ago. We try to come down to O.U. every year for a weekend visit, and usually stay at the Holiday Inn. This time around they were completely booked so we decided to stay at the O.U. Inn. I am so glad that we booked a room here. Normal check in... More

The hotel was excellent. The outdoor patio was a great spot for dining and Cutler's Restaurant was very good. A healthy jaunt to the heart of Athens, but if you're into walking it works. The area around Athens is a really gorgeous landscape. Go up Ridge to see the old insane asylum turned into an art museum.

There was nothing fancy about this hotel, was a bit overpriced I thought but the location for our activities was perfect. The bed was pretty darn comfy and the room was clean, in room coffee was pretty good too. This is a great hotel for parents of OU students as it is on campus and within walking distance to many...

This is a nice place to stay. They were painting the interior during our stay and the restaurant was closed, but the facility was clean and quiet. The staff was pleasant and professional. Close proximity to OU, but not really within walking distance.

Also stayed two nights for orientation. Had a king suite with a separate bedroom which was nice since the first night new freshman son slept on the pull out couch. Room was very spacious and clean with 2 TVs and a minifridge. Microwave would be nice too. Furnishings are a bit dated and worn. It was very hot during our... More
