“Lovely lodging!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Ohio University Inn & Conference Ctr. The rooms were very clean, updated and comfortable. Almost like home, but better! I recommend this facility to anyone. We were in town for a wedding.

My husband and I have stayed at the OU Inn many times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very kind and helpful and the property in the summer is gorgeous with all the beautiful outside flowers planted everywhere! Must try the restaurant as they always have a great "different" selection of beers and a great menu. The only thing bad I have to say is that the staff at the restaurant is very slow. Not just on 1 occasion but a couple times that we had to wait for refills or for our check...

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room overlooking the outside patio area to see all the beautiful flowers in the su...

We had a great stay at the OU Inn. The staff was extremely professional and everyone, including every single chamber maid we encountered, was helpful and remarkably friendly. (They seem like happy employees.) The layout of the building is odd, but our room was large, clean, and comfortable. The lobby seemed like it was recently updated. Nice pool. We had good breakfasts in the restaurant. Loved the piano player on Sunday morning!

One minor complaint: The Building C elevator that we used to get to our room was hot and a little grimy. It could use a good wipe-down. But overall, this is a hotel that's operating really well. We will be back!

Room Tip: Call as far in advance as you can. This is a hotel that books quickly, especially during graduation...

We stayed for a family wedding on June 14th. Our room was clean and spacious. Appreciated the refrigerator! There were lots of spaces to gather and enjoy family & friends. The outdoor space for a wedding was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff so eager to make it a 5 star experience:) We enjoyed a short walk to the quaint town & OU campus as well. OU Inn is a wonderful place to stay for any event or stop over. Thanks to all for a great time!

My family and I spent 4 days at the OU INN a little over a week ago. My first thoughts are about the staff. They treat you like family, always polite and friendly. From the house cleaning staff to the management. The Hotel was very clean, the grounds were manicured, the food was awsome. I have stayed at many other hotels in the area over the years and for the life of me I cant remember why. Well I know that wont happen anymore! Thank you for a wonderful experience at your Hotel.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a great little sitting area that look right out to the patio area that has a...

We went to a Wedding on June 14th. Arrived 2 days early for some fun. The staff was excellent, food was great and the atmosphere was awesome. I highly recommend this hotel for everyone. Thank you OU Inn staff. One of the best hotels I have stayed at that didn't have a beach!

Room Tip: lower rooms have a balcony. First floor rooms are great!

We stayed here for our son's orientation weekend. Older property but they have done a very good job maintaining everything. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Our room had a balcony and faced the very nice courtyard pool. The restaurant is great! The bar was busy and welcoming after a long day of orientation meetings. Starbucks in the morning with a smile from the young lady acting as Barrista. There is a small park right next door if you want to go with the kids and play on the swings etc. The three buildings are connected by a long hallway on the second floor. If you don't like stairs then ask for a room near the front where the elevators are located. We were pleased with everything about our stay and would definitely choose this property again when we are in Athens to visit OU.
