“Beautiful room at Miami University”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

My family and I stayed at the Marcum while visiting Miami University. The hotel is located at the northeast corner of University property. The staff at the front desk were extremely courteous and helpful. Our room looked new, elegant, and polished. We stayed in a king suite, which had a king sized bed in one room with a separate room that had a sofabed and kitchenette. There was a t.v. in each room. My daughter thought the king bed, bedding, and pillows were the most comfortable bed she has ever slept on. Our room was on the second floor, directly above the breakfast area. I was surprised that I did not hear any noises from the floor below. Breakfast included bagels, muffins, oatmeal, and fruit. The grounds near the Marcum are very pretty, with flowering formal gardens.

I was staying at the Marcum while my sons were in hockey camp and was pleasantly surprised of the clean and quiet rooms. It was right on campus and walking distance to the whole school.
The only drawback is there is no restaraunts nearby, but they are only a 5 minute or less drive away.

The Marcum is right on the Miami University Campus. The rooms are brand new, and well adorned with fantastic beds and pillow = comfortable to the max.
The rooms are clean, fairly sound proofed, no complaints.
They have a small continental breakfast - oatmeal, cereal, fruit, muffins, coffee, tea.
A night, the breakfast area converts to a bar.
We Liagre very satisfied.

As frequent visitors to the Oxford area we are familiar with the hotel options. Our family had a block of rooms for a gathering and I should have known we were in trouble when the desk clerk was unable to figure out the reservations (too many of us with the same name I guess!) She was snippy and unpleasant during the entire check-in process.

The rooms are in serious need of updating -- very soft, lumpy beds, loud air conditioning and doors that are paper thin. You can hear everything being said in the hallway and know whenever anyone fills their ice bucket!

My advice is to stay here only as a last resort. There are better options in Oxford!

I was apprehensive when I was given a first floor room, especially because the Inn was crowded the night I stayed. Yet, I had a great night's sleep and didn't hear a thing all night. I wanted to write this review because the Inn is so quiet!

I came to the Inn as part of a group of 28 visitors to Miami University. The downstairs common room works well for socializing.

My understanding is that the Inn will be relocated this summer because this particular property is being re-purposed as a student residence hall for the 2012-2013 academic year. I was told that the new Inn will come with be modern, larger and upgraded.

Room Tip: My room was quiet, even though it was on the first floor.

The good.... Location, location, location... And it was very quiet. Nice towels, ok beds, free wifi. The not so good: small dark rooms in need of updating, or at least better lighting, more outlets. The door/locks did not leave me feeling safe and secure. The rooms were otherwise ok for an old hotel in need of love. But, the bathroom - tub was stained, the room small. Lastly, though, and most gross... The air vent/fan (in the ceiling) was disgusting! Full of dust and who knows what else. Outside of the room: the lobby was dark, non-descript. Service was average. The free breakfast was less than adequate. We ended up eating elsewhere.

I stayed at the Inn which is part of the Marcum. I had read some not so great reviews and was a little nervous but everything was fabulous. I was In a king size bed room and was not disappointed. This is a great place to stay on campus. Super quiet and class was in session.
