“Love it here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We stay here every time we visit Oxford. The staff is wonderful. We travel quite a bit and are particular about where we stay. This will always be our first choice!!!!! The location is great and that rooms are very comfortable and well appointed.

I just got back from a weekend stay at the Inn in Oxford and it will be my last. Although the hotel is just off the main drag, there are several other things that more than offset this advantage. The cost is $200/night and the rooms are average. They are really in need of an update although clean. Being so close to campus, also realize that the street noise, particularly on the weekend, will be fairly loud well into the night. Breakfast - not included and don't bother. They have a restaurant that is run by just one person! Yes that is right .. Host, waiter, cook all in one. On a Saturday morning I was the only one in the restaurant at 9:00 AM. The food was so so.. The parking is in a garage across the street and as a hotel guest you park on the top floor which is open to the weather. In previous stays I have been at the relatively new Hampton and this is where I will return next year.

No one should have to put up with the following for a $220/night suite for a weekend in Oxford: Wear ear plugs or headphones if you want to get any sleep as air conditioner ridiculously noisy & made walls vibrate. Ice machine broken-could only get ice in the bar. Computers for
guests in business center broken & waited in line to sit at desk in room behind main desk
to use an old, slow computer. No coffee maker in room. Toilet backed up in early morning before leaving & told maintenance will get to it right away. 2+ hrs later still backed up & told "yes, maintenance will get to it right away...but they don't get there until after 11:00 on
Sundays"! Family had to use bathroom off main lobby that morning. Front desk staff
nice & smily but slow to respond or unresponsive to our basic needs.

The Elms puts you in the best location in Oxford, and provides sizable rooms at a reasonable price. Our room had a fridge, microwave, mini coffee maker, whirlpool, and free WiFi. Being on the fourth floor helps a bit with uptown street noise. Turning on the room's fan helps, too.

Oxford desperately needed a well-placed hotel for years; I'm glad there's finally one here.

Hueston Woods has its advantages as a state park, but if you're looking to experience Oxford and be within a short walk of numerous restaurants, coffee shops, stores, and the university, there's no better place to stay. Parking hassles are also addressed, since you can park for $3/night in the garage across the street.

Overpriced with not much to show. Location is great, rooms are clean BUT our room vibrated more than an airplane. You couldn't even lean against the bed headrest to read because the whole thing was moving. Staff were unphased by this complaint saying, "Oh, we will make a note of that." The ice machine was not working on our floor. Staff responded by saying they would get right to it. Well it didn't happen until another request the next day. There was even a delay in getting someone to attend to the backed up toilet.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room that doesn't vibrate.

The rooms were clean. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The location is perfect. You are in walking distance of all the shops and restaurants on and around High Street. Also, it's only a few blocks from the university.
