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...

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...

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...

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....

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.

Perfect up town location. Be sure to ask for 2 queen beds this assures you of a room not on the ally with its "urban noise". The noise level is awful. Can't sleep at all with that racket. Drunk kids. Garbage trucks delivery trucks. The noise is awful 24/7. We prefer the cabins at Hueston woods.

I have stayed at this hotel many times. It used to be the nicest hotel you could find in Oxford but now the beds are totally worn out and need to be replaced. The room and facility were clean, in good repair and appealing to the eye which is nice, however, the bed was so concave that I couldn't believe...

This hotel is located right down town. The perfect place to stay if you want the University experience. It is beautifully decorated and kept very clean. The staff are very nice and accomodating. The restaurant/bar Three Trees has excellent food. And yes, it is called Three Trees because there are 3 trees in the center of the space. The beds...

Went to Sunday Brunch on Parent's Weekend. We arrived at the restaurant no one to greet us.
