It's a pleasure to stay at the OU Inn. A hidden fine dining experience, along with clean and comfortable rooms makes the Inn a fantastic place to stay in Athens. The staff are the friendliest people to make staying even further enjoyable!

From our initial contact by phone to reserve a room until checkout, our experience was exceptional. The staff was friendly and helpful, the accommodations were clean and updated, and Athens was a great college town.

My first stay at the OU Inn & Conference Center was first-class all the way, from the super-friendly and professional staff to the luxurious room accommodations. The location is very convenient to the OU campus but outside the hustle and bustle of the campus perimeter. The dinner was superbly prepared and cooked and served by the friendly waiting staff. I...

The staff is always so gracious and kind when you walk in. They had our room ready with parking information and directions. The restaurant is amazing, bar is great and the Starbucks counter is perfect for on the go. It's a clean and welcoming space that is close to campus-especially West Green. Highly recommend this place.

The University Inn is close to a campus entrance so it is easy to find. Check in was fast and and a side entrance provided both parking and quick access to our room. The room itself was nice - good beds, clean, and quiet. The comfort level was increased by the inclusion of a couch, microwave, fridge and easy access...
