We were in Gambier for a wedding recently. The bride's family had blocked rooms at the Kenyon Inn. We were very pleased.
Since we were in town for a celebration of a wonderful couple and even more wonderful parents it was easy to be in a good mood. Staying at the Inn only made it better. The desk person was a tad brusque and I worried about how the visit would go. But the room was great--the front desk person was NICE just ultra business like for Gambier OH on a Saturday afternoon in June. Anyway the room was very nice. I assume it was redone but never staying here that's just a guess. The amenities were nice the room was a good size and the bathroom was great. It had a first rate shower and the rest of the space was adequate.
The beds were comfortable and the place was spotless. We were at the end of the hall--I can imagine it might get a little noisy if you were near the front desk on the first floor but it was fine where we were.
The staff (other than the desk clerk being a bit formal--and I'd take that over not caring ANY day) was great. We sort of took over the bar at times and the staff was patient and accomodating. We had a breakfast the next day and while it was a private buffet I assume the food was similar to what would normally be served and it was top notch.
So if you have some reason to be in Gambier or the general area I recommend this Inn. It would be easy for them to "mail it in" as they're the only game in town mostly but they didn't. They took alot of effort to make the rooms and place stand out.
