The room was fine, and the hotel has everything you could ask for--patio, business center, Starbucks off the lobby, good internet. Very friendly and pleasant staff. But the walls are thin and people near us were noisy, and the doors rattled when anyone went by.

Couldn't have asked for a better stay at the OU Inn. From check-in, the staff was extremely friendly and quick to get us to our room. The room was very nice with a great balcony overlooking the pool area. The bathroom was spacious with a great walk-in shower. Everything was extremely clean. It was perfect proximity for a short 10-15...

We decided to book this at the last minute after hiking Hocking Hills. It is updated, clean, and bright. Staff were friendly and professional. Having a mini frig in the room was a nice plus. Enjoyed the gas fire on the outdoor patio near the restaurant. Overall a pleasant stay and less expensive than Hocking Hills hotels. Better value too.

This hotel was really nice! Quiet and clean. The restaurant in the hotel had delicious food. Great proximity to Ohio University. The young woman at the front desk was really nice. The workout facility was also nice.

OU Inn feels like home away from home. The staff is extremely attentive, and always goes above and beyond to meet our every need. Our son is a sophomore and we plan on spending each visit at the OU Inn.

Everyone at the Inn was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional! Our room was perfect with comfortable beds and pillows, a mini refrigerator, a spacious bathroom, and the Inn is an easy walk to campus.

The suite worked out great for my daughter and I because she was diagnosed with strep throat the day before and needed rest for our all day tour of OU. It was great for her to have her own room with the beautiful king sized bed and I slept really well on the pull out couch which was very comfortable.

Most extraordinary staff of any place I have ever stayed. Front desk, restaurant and lounge were all staffed with people who seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs and made an extra effort to make the stay pleasant. The facility was also clean, comfortable and well maintained.

I discovered this place while working and living nearby for almost eighteen years. Maybe each weekend and occasionally during the work week I would visit this place. I recall walking many times to the main OU campus from this location when I wanted the time to walk. It was a convenient place for many of my conferences, but I enjoyed...

We decided to stay at the Ohio University Inn after figuring out that we could walk to campus from that location, unlike most of the other higher priced motels in the same price class. We like to get out and walk after sitting in the car all day. The Inn met all of our expectations except one. It was clean,...
