We have lived in Gambier for 25 years and have eaten numerous times at the Kenyon Inn. I have never stayed there but before we moved here, my husband would come oon business and stay here. A few years ago, all the rooms were redecorated so things are fresh and new. There are not a lot of really good places... More

The inn is situated on a beautiful college campus. A group of us were there for a business trip in Mt. Vernon. The room was clean and inviting. The bed was very comfortable and the toiletries were of high quality. Would recommend a stay to anyone.

The Kenyon College campus is ranked as one of the nation's most beautiful, and 200 years since its establishemnt, its central core along its Middle East Path almost looks as it did at least 60 years ago. The Inn is easily the best hotel in the area, and is located right at the heart of the campus. its very comfortable... More

Stopping in during a recent college visit, and decided to the stay the night (for the second time) at the Kenyon Inn. The property is somewhat dated - though updated in places, and the rooms have a fresh touch - and lacks some newer amenities, but is overall a cozy stop. Gambier has a bucolic charm and the Kenyon campus... More

My daughter was visiting Kenyon for a prospective student overnight, so I decided to stay right on campus as well. I was greeted warmly upon check-in and made my way to my room - a king with a jacuzzi tub. I was impressed by the size of the room and it looked recently renovated. The decor was warm and welcoming.... More

I've stayed at the Kenyon inn multiple times on business and it is a very nice place to stay. I could get good quality sleep, and the restaurant is quite decent, but maybe a bit pricey. Wine/beer selection is interesting. The rooms are nice and big and the washrooms are renovated. You also get access to the Kenyon Athletic Center,... More

we stayed here while visiting kenyon with our son and had a very good experience. it's not luxury, more like an old time b & b, but the front desk service was quite good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. it's certainly the best place to stay in gambier and the surrounding small towns, and i'm sure it's filled...

This hotel was very well preserved and comfortable. The staff was stupendous. The bar quaint and nice. The restaurant was good. It is across the street from Kenyon College which is why most people stay there anyway.

This hotel is a treasure. It is like being at a grandparents home for a cozy and comfortable stay. Love being there service is great, place is immaculate. Just a pleasing experience all around. The restaurant is wonderful as well, as is the ability to get a cocktail on the lawn in front

The Kenyon Inn is located on the college campus of Kenyon University. This is a jewel of a place. It is an old style hotel with wooden floors in the hallways. The rooms are attractively decorated, spacious, and comfortable. One of the amazing items of this little hotel is the food in their restaurant. They have the most deliciously prepared... More
