Loved the walk in shower. King size bed was very comfortable. Heater/AC wasn't too loud. Staff super friendly. Loved that you can walk easlly on to OU campus. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Especially a great value when you visit on a non-event weekend.

We visited for siblings weekend as out son is a freshman and his sister will be attending OU next weekend. We have dealt with General Manager Scott Kovalick several times over the past year. He is a true professional and we really appreciate the high level of service he has shown us. Couldn't have done it without him.

This is a great location. So close to the campus. Just park your car and walk up the street and you are on campus. Great location for sporting events because the hotel is near them. Rooms were clean, staff friendly and helpful, and had a nice bar area.

Carrie at the front desk was also very helpful with providing directions and setting me up with cab services to the campus because I am not familiar with the university. I...

Once again, Betsy and the entire staff at The Ohio University Inn and Conference Center did a great job during our stay. It is our normal spot while in Athens for our event. They do a great job in the early stages of planning through the billing aspects of the stay.
