Knights Inn Athens
Ranked #8 of 10 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We just needed a roof over our heads for a night and the Knight's Inn fit that description. There is nothing special about it. The front desk clerk was efficient, but not really friendly.
Our room had a bare plaster patch on the wall and cheap looking laminate flooring that gave the room a cheap feel.
Our room was fairly clean...there was a line of dirt along the tub because of a metal piece that didn't allow the mop to get all the way to the tub and dirt in the corners. The cheap laminate floor was separating in spots that also allowed dirt to accumulate. Nothing that a little extra effort on the part of housekeeping couldn't fix.
The front desk clerk was efficient, not overly friendly or welcoming.
The beds were pretty hard but i loved the firmness of the pillow I had. I wish I had one like that at home! Very comfy.
The hotel location was great. Plenty of nearby shopping and restaurants plus the local movie theater is across the street.
Overall, it's fine if you're on a tight budget or just looking for a clean, dry place to spend a night.

This is the second time I was forced to stay here, as all other hotels were booked for Dads weekend. I thought the first time was bad but this was worse. The beds are of the cheapest quality. Dirty bathroom(hairs on the floor), very small. I was awakened at 0500 by the individual next to me as his cell phone went off, alarm and television(the walls are that thin). He then proceeded to have a conversation with another individual outside of my room. $125.00 a night. I could have slept on my sons apartment floor and gotten better rest and given him the $125.00. Would sleep in my car before sleeping there again. Athens is a small town, book ahead and not this place.

Room Tip: Does not rate one star

The non-smoking room had a bit of a smoke smell... I slept with the window in the bathroom open which aired the room out. It was a nice place... very clean...at a great price. Breakfast was very simple.

This hotel is located on State Street in the heart of Athens. The room was clean and the location excellent. Many places to dine in or carryout right by the hotel. Check in was hassle free and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Go directly to their website to book a room, it will be cheaper than booking through some other site...

Forced to stay here because nothing else was available in town for OU orientation week. Rooms are straight out of the 70's with zero maintenance. Electric outlets are all 2 prong so I couldn't even charge my laptop or cell phone. There's a moldy/dusty/chemical smell in the room. My dreams were haunted with the possibility the neighbor might be cooking up a batch of Meth.

I should have stayed in a decent hotel in Columbus and just drove.....
