Not being from Ohio, the Athens hotels are unfamiliar to us. We knew that we would not be spending much time in our hotel room during OU move-in weekend so we decided to go with an inexpensive hotel. Boy, was that a mistake. On our first night, we requested that our down pillows and comforters be replaced since 3 out... More

Arrived late and the staff was very accommodating, got a room pretty quick and was in, in no time. It has outside entrance rooms where you park your car in front of your room, and inside entrance rooms which had a second floor of rooms inside. The air conditioner works really well!!

The people who manage this Knights Inn couldn't be nicer and they were as accommodating as the price you pay would accommodate. I don't typically stay at this "level" of a hotel, but it is what it is. The beds are adequate, the cleanliness is acceptable and the location is really the only reason you would stay here. The worst... More
