“Filthy, dilapidated, stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2008

To be completely honest, this is a filthy , run-down dump of a hotel. The room hadn't been vacuumed in weeks (just look under the bed...you'll see), the carpet was pieced together with about 5 different chunks of different vintage and color, and each day we had to go to the office and ASK for:
- more coffee for the coffeepot for the next day
- more coffeecups
- more plain plastic cups
- more of the tiny little soaps provided
- fresh towels (the ones provided were so threadbare they should have been replaced 2 years ago)

They did absolutely nothing to the room while we were there, and we had to ask for EVERYTHING. They didn't enter the room for housekeeping the entire stay. The only positive was that the shower had decent pressure and heat.

If you want to see the 2008 version of a flophouse, this is it. I'm honestly surprised they can stay in business. If you think I must be a very fussy person, you're wrong. I can understand that you have to expect less from a place that doesn't charge much relative to other local lodging, but this place was horrible.

Shawnee Inn was a good value. You get what you pay for. Would stay here again. No idea about the "broken down cars" that Paris, Kentucky complained about. Helpful & friendly staff. Not part of a huge chain. Now I remember, the "broken down cars" were taken to Paris, KY to use as limosines...

The place is a run down old motel.
It had broken down cars in the parking lot.
There were people living there, not just staying there. It is apparent that only the basics were attended to to keep it running.
I would never stay there again. Go for the newer hotels in Logan.

We stayed at the Shawnee Inn. Very adequate. Ate at Old Dutch Resturant, very nice, home cooking.
Hocking Hills State Park was very interesting Requires a fair amount of walking, but the waterfalls were nice, and the huge granite walls and deep gorges were impressive. Saw a couple of deer. Were surprised at the small number of tourists-perhaps because it was in June. At Old Man Cave were the largest number of people, and this was the nicest of the places we visited. Well worth the trip.
