“Basic room but CLEAN”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We stayed for three nights over Memorial Day weekend. We were there for a family reunion nearby. The hotel is VERY OUTDATED! BUT it was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower had hot water, everything worked including great wifi! So for $50 a night it can't be beat! The Hampton nearby was $149 a night! We did not eat the breakfast because we went to families house. What I saw was very basic food.
We would DEFINITELY stay here again next year.

I would suggest cleaning up the lobby from clutter and mate painting the paneling in the rooms am replacing bedspreads with duvet covers that are washable.

We stayed in Knights Inn because it was the only room available during Ohio University's graduation weekend. We were delighted with the room and the hospitable management. It was clean, comfortable, affordable, and conveniently located to both campus and Rte 50. While the hotel looks like it has not been updated in decades, everything was clean and in good repair. It is by no means a luxury hotel but if you want a basic room at a well-managed property for a fair price, try Knights Inn.

Room was clean, staff were very friendly and the breakfast was plentiful. No problems at all. Parking is right outside your room door. Access to Ohio University is perfect. All along East
State Street there are many restaurants and shopping areas.

Not the cleanest place but then again we were looking for value and we found it. It's half the price of surrounding hotels and the rate was negotiable. Plus is they had free breakfast. More or less just a crash pad.

Great little inn, no holi-dome, but that wasn't what I was looking for, clean (a bit dated! Loved the pink porcelin sink fixtures in my bathroom! lol) room, free breakfast, easy access to town and shopping. Backs right up to the Hocking-Adena Bikeway so I was able to park the car and ride my bike in for most of my stay! Which was great because parking in Athens is atrocious.
Staff was friendly and basically let me be, which is all I'm looking for on business travel!
Great food right around the hotel, try Kieser's BBQ express right across the street for some awesome local eats.
Only thing I would suggest to the staff would be: should at least mow out a path to the wonderful bike path behind your hotel! Put down some wood chips, nothing fancy, just would make it a little more inviting then having to huff it thru the weeds, and put real creamer out with the Conti-breakfast! Powdered, blech, :-)
All in all, if your looking for easy inexpensive lodging, good pick!

Stayed at the Knights Inn in Athens and was pleasantly surprised. My previous experiences with Knights Inns in other cites have not been particularly good. In Athens, however, there are some new rooms built behind the old (original) building. These new rooms are spacious, but spartan. Most of all, they were clean. While I would not pick this motel as my first choice when visiting Athens again, I would certainly consider it as a reasonable second choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a "new" room behind the original building.

This is a lovely, no frills, roadside motel convenient to Ohio University and close to several places to eat and shop. We have stayed in the same room twice, now, and it was clean and comfortable, with a bed so large that we had to laugh. But all was clean, including the sparkling bathroom.. The complimentary breakfast had ample choices of cereal, bagels, waffles, juice, and delicious coffee..
And, John F. Kennedy stayed here when he was a senator!
