Book early very popular site. Sold out of all of the Special Events taking place around the University. Great location, rooms are clean, people friendly environment, and smoke free rooms; however there is smoking on the exterior in various locations

I have never had a bad experience with the Ohio University Inn and Conference Center. My company uses them for all its events. Amber Lechner, Jacque Newton, Betsy Baringer and Kate Moore are always fantastic at helping me get all the details right, and making sure everything goes smoothly.

We stayed for just one night, but the staff was most helpful, and the accommodations very comfortable. Although we did not have breakfast, we did use the pub, and found the service and food outstanding.

I stayed at the Inn for a camus event and it was great! People were friendly, room was nice, and they had a shuttle to take us where we needed to go but it was also within walking distance to everything we needed.

Ben Kline the manager will go out of his way to make sure everything is perfect. Outdoor pool area is great for relaxing and hotel is basically on campus. The best place to stay if visiting Ohio University.
