I highly recommend this hotel if you are in the Athens area. It is a very short drive to anywhere on campus. Everyone on the staff that I dealt with was very friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable, and the temperature was easily regulated. The bathroom was modern and clean. I was particularly impressed with how clean the... More

My daughter and I stayed at your hotel and loved everything about it! But I want to point out that the bathroom was especially nice. Finally, a hotel with a nice walk in shower instead of a shower/tub combo. The bed was very comfortable and the room was plenty big enough. We ate in the dining room one evening and... More

Just a short drive around a round about and over a bridge from Ohio University, the Ohio University Inn is a clean, comfortable hotel with a friendly staff. The restaurant - Cutler's - also is good. In the lobby, there's a little coffee counter that sells muffins, cookies, etc., too. The lobby is a comfortable place to wait for a... More

Nice hotel, rooms seem to be renovated recently and were well appointed. Friendly staff. Large spread out property. Very close to the University but most of shopping and stores are on the other side of town. Lobby has bar/Starbuck location and restaurant was good. Only complaint is that could not find an in room safe and did not include breakfast... More

My organization put on a banquet at the OU Inn and it turned out amazing. The people there were so great to work with, the food was terrific, and the facility was beautiful. Also, we had a great bartender, Allie! We will definitely be coming back in the future.

We traveled to Athens Ohio for the night and of course we needed a five star upscale hotel.

Top notch place to stay right next to campus. Especially impressed with the above and beyond service provided at the front desk by Mackenzie when weather threatened to cancel the Ohio UpClose program. Clean, comfortable modern rooms. We will definitely return if our daughter chooses OU.
