I paid a premium price to stay at the historic Atherton. I was pretty disappointed. I also paid extra to get a suite, but the bedroom was tiny and it had a tiny sitting area, and a tiny bathroom. The bed itself was great, and the linens were wonderful, but the furniture was old and run down. The bathroom was... More

I just returned from moving my daughter home for the summer from Oklahoma State University. I stayed at the Atherton which is located inside the beautiful university's student union. It is run by the students from OSU's hospitality program, and they do a great job! It is so convenient for anything having to do with campus business. I would definitely... More

Stay anywhere other than this hotel when you're in Stillwater. The price is ridiculous for a small broom closet of a room with no window, one very small bed, extra small bathroom with a dank shower, no place to put toiletries, terrible lighting. Depressing cave of a room. Stay anywhere but here! Check-in was slow, and calls to the hotel... More

My daughter & I stayed here on a college visit and the location can't be beat! It's right in the middle of campus- we were able to walk everywhere and since it was an official college visit, even the parking was free (validate your parking ticket at the Alumni Center when you check in for your tour). I thought our... More

I was on campus to give a talk and wanted to be as close to campus as possible. It was great to stay right on campus and, as it turned out, the hotel was very conveniently located near the buildings on campus where I needed to be. After reading some reviews here I was expecting to see a dated room... More

My husband, son, and myself were visiting the OSU campus on a college visit, and thought the hotel would be an interesting place to stay before an early morning appointment. We arrived and got checked in with no problem. Luckily it was late at night, because there was little comfort or amenities in the room. The room smelled of mildew... More

We stay at the Atherton because of its central location on campus. Nothing is more convenient when visiting your son/daughter or going to a game. Overall, the hotel is comfortable but could stand some updates in certain minor areas. Staff is always nice and accommodating and many are actually students in the HRAD program so it's fun to see how... More

Stayed at the Atherton one night last week. Being an OSU alum, I love campus and the student union. Was nice to see the addition of the garden seating area. Had dinner seated outside and it was great! Rancher's Club is one of the finer places to eat in Stillwater. My stay was ok, but they really need to update... More

After reading the reviews and for sentimental reasons we opted for this hotel. We were a bit disappointed for the price. We stayed at the Carolina inn unc campus and I think we were expecting a similar experience. Didn't happen. (we aren't alumni of either btw). First of all, there is no easy way to unload stuff. The only entrance... More

I have stayed at the Atherton several times, and each time has been wonderful. The people who work there are always very pleasant, and the rooms are beautifully appointed. I'm allergic to feather/down, and they're happy to replace the bedding for me. This past stay, however, I got room 3333. It was orientation weekend, so they were full. There was... More
