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

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

If you're staying at the Kenyon in, it's more than likely you're visiting Kenyon College. I was stunningly impressed with the quality and atmosphere of this small hotel in this VERY small village. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are updated and each has a small brass plaque on the door w/ that rooms dedication. The restaurant... More

Gambier Ohio is Kenyon College. It's a pretty little town with nothing else going on. This Inn is a lovely old but very well kept hotel, where one is greeted warmly and help is always available for whatever one needs. The restaurant, while not stellar, is perfectly adequate for a college visit trip.
