It's a shame that Oberlin doesn't have a decent hotel or inn in the town, but alas such is the case. The Oberlin Inn is ideally located right in the center of town, but the hotel is a disappointment in almost every respect. The building (I'm guessing 1960's vintage - it replaced an older hotel on the same location) is a cinder block and brick affair utterly without charm. The restaurant doesn't merit a visit - period. The bar is awful.
There are plans to replace the current structure with a new building, which will hopefully at least relieve the architectural boredom of the current building. However, unless the management of the place is completely re-structured, I doubt things are likely to improve.
