Great inn, spacious quiet rooms, good bedding and especially clean. Location can't be beat for things Kenyon - walk to all. The restaurant is also quite good, with an ambitious menu (if a bit pricey for OH). Good choice for a special dinner. Relax with a cocktail on the front lawn and a drink in the bar after dinner.

I cannot remember the last time I used a real key to enter a hotel room! You do have to promise to return the keys when you check out, but it adds to the authenticity of this charming hotel. It has all the usual room amenities, free WIFI, Keurig, hidden refrigerator and a pretty quiet A/C unit that we actually... More

We all stayed there for a wedding and was impressed with this property. Considering they had a captive campus audience was expecting much...but this is a first class operation. The rooms, beds, and bath are large, new and comfortable...a great place to stay with lots of history.

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...
