The Atherton is newly and completely renovated. We stayed the first week after it reopened, so there were a few glitches but it was generally very nice. Our room was large and comfortable, with upscale furnishings and linens. Staff was, for the most part helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet in the Rancher's Club was very good as well, with several... More

As a local, I recently attended a meeting in an upstairs conference room at the newly renovated hotel - which gave me a chance to view all the public areas as well as one of the individual rooms. The decor is comfortably formal with a few tasteful on-trend touches. My husband and I have stayed at some highly rated renovated... More

Stayed a few days for parents weekend. The hotel is completely redone, the rooms are quite small and clean but very expensive. My queen room was $349. There was only hot water in the shower, no cold. Internet worked at night but not in the morning. The standout was the cleaning staff, the most courteous I have ever experienced. So... More

Pat, Thank you for staying with us and for the review. The room you stayed in is normally $159.95, but during a football weekend our rate goes up. Parking is a major challenge for us. The Student Union operates the parking garage and they charge the $35 for game weekends. We offer valet service to the garage across the street,... More

Student operated hotel that had just reopened after an extensive refurbishment that gave it a very rich and warm welcoming atmosphere. As we were dropped off at the door we were warmly greeted by the bellman. We approached the reception area that has 4 large desks in it. One of the students checked us in and told us about the...

We stayed for 2 nights for a family wedding. The new decor is well done and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the service was pleasant and efficient. On the down side...the bar only stayed open until 10 pm, the water from the bathroom sink smelled like lake water, very unpleasant, the service at the... More

Hello Judy C Thank you for the review. As you can imagine, after being closed for renovation for over two years, we definitely have some kinks that must be ironed out. Please allow me to attempt to address a few of your comments. *We established the bar hours with the idea we would adjust as demand dictated. Up until now,... More

I stay at The Atherton for most Alumni trips back for my fraternity's annual dinner and gala. The rooms are very comfortable and come with wifi so I can keep up with work. The hotel staff is superlative and goes above and beyond the call of duty to make my stay enjoyable and memorable. The proximity to the Greek house... More

We had our wedding party stay at the Atherton and it was awesome. School was not yet in session, but the band was practicing and so were the cheerleaders outside of the hotel. Great access to the strip and being on campus easy to walk to everything

I paid a premium price to stay at the historic Atherton. I was pretty disappointed. I also paid extra to get a suite, but the bedroom was tiny and it had a tiny sitting area, and a tiny bathroom. The bed itself was great, and the linens were wonderful, but the furniture was old and run down. The bathroom was... More

I just returned from moving my daughter home for the summer from Oklahoma State University. I stayed at the Atherton which is located inside the beautiful university's student union. It is run by the students from OSU's hospitality program, and they do a great job! It is so convenient for anything having to do with campus business. I would definitely... More

Stay anywhere other than this hotel when you're in Stillwater. The price is ridiculous for a small broom closet of a room with no window, one very small bed, extra small bathroom with a dank shower, no place to put toiletries, terrible lighting. Depressing cave of a room. Stay anywhere but here! Check-in was slow, and calls to the hotel... More
