Verified Reviews of The Ohio University Inn & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very comfortable and very nice staff."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This was our first stay at the Inn even though our son is a senior. I'm a Hilton Honors member so we generally use points and stay there. This time, we were bringing our dog with us and the Inn is likely the nicest place that accepts dogs. The staff was very nice and very helpful. The room was comfortable, but looking a little worn. Could use a refresh then again, maybe this is how the dog friendly rooms look as there is definite expense involved for someone's pet to potentially mess it up.

"Booking Nightmare"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Stay was fine, but the fact that the website links to reservation.com and then books guests on hotel planner.com is a nightmare. It is impossible to call this company even though they have booked our room for $40+ too much. Should allow direct booking via phone how difficult could this be given it is a single property?.
