We came to Oxford on a whim and were unable to get into a b&b so came here for the location (only a block from the square). The room had all the amenities you'd expect and we were told the motel was to be demolished and rebuilt in the near future so were happy to overlook things like the air... More

I stayed one night in the Downtown Oxford Inn. It was right in the heart of picturesque Oxford and 1 mile away from the University. The check in was seamless and the desk clerk was very eager to help and answer any questions I had. He even to draw out the route on a map he gave me. Very thoughtful... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. The current hotel will be completely demolished and a new hotel will be built in this same location. The new hotel "Hotel Oxford" is expected to open in the summer of 2014. We hope you will consider staying with us at the new hotel! Thank you! More

Downtown Oxford Inn is in a beautiful area and was probably a great place...MANY years ago. It's in a desperate need of updating or even just a good clean. The Inn is made up of several freestanding buildings with rooms facing out, so you walk in from the parking lot or the 2nd floor balcony. There are some pros...albeit few:... More

Love the location. But the hotel is very sad and needs to be updated. The rooms are dreary.The breakfast was so disappointing.The staff however was very nice. I love Oxford and will go back once a month but I will find somewhere to stay.

Great location, few yards to town square. Front desk staff pleasant & friendly, usually college students. 80s Hotel decor worn & dated. Breakfast buffet dreadful plastic food. Suggest you bring your own. Cleanliness questionable. NYC prices on game & activity weekends for cheap motel surroundings. Parking on a first come basis, so you may end up walking quite a distance...

As some other reviewers have stated, this place has a great location. We walked down to the square and had some good food from here. But the hotel is starting to show it's age.

Oxford is a great town with great places to eat, great tailgates, and a wealth of history. However, they fall short on places to stay, but that is about tho change. We stayed 3 nights in a 1 BR suite in Building C. Its was clean and comfortable but not esthetically pleasing, contemporary or unto date by any stretch. The... More

Don't be misled by the name - this is a motel. Our room was OK and seemed clean and the location is certainly good - a short walk to the square. As for the breakfast - forget it! Plastic food served on plastic in a barren room. Do yourself a favour and go to the Bottletree Cafe which serves excellent... More

The Downtown Oxford Inn was recommended to me for a recent business trip to Oxford, Mississippi. My expectations were not "Four Seasons" but I wish that the folks at the Oxford Inn would try a little harder. My room was marginally clean. The carpet is so old, I'm sure it won't come clean. The bathroom was clean enough, but the... More
