Very nice hotel next to the ONU campus. Accommodations were very nice, clean and well maintained. the Bartender was great and the food was very good. The woman at the desk who checked us in made us wait for almost 7 minutes before she stopped what she was doing and checked us in. I did not get her name, but... More

As an alumni of ONU I have stayed at the Inn a few times and it has gone downhill recently. Previously they had spa products beyond the usual in the bathroom (lip balm, etc.). But overall it was better than staying in Lima. However be aware if you are handicapped to request to stay in rooms 114-119. Even after putting... More

Hotel was great. Shower is awesome, towel warmer in the bathroom. Very clean and extremely nice employees. Also a decent complementary continental breakfast. My son was able to workout too. Convenient stay at ONU. Can't wait to get back and visit our daughter.

This is a great, high-end hotel right on the ONU campus. Rooms were very nicely decorated, beds are comfy, and the bathroom is amazing. Two shower heads, a towel warmer, and upscale, thoughtful toiletries. There is a guest laundry, and they have complimentary (hello??!!) detergent and dryer sheets at the front desk. The dining hall and wings restaurant is right... More

Who would have expected a place this nice in the middle of, really, nowhere. It serves the University, but would work well if you are looking for a quality place on your route. Comfy bed, rooms off a hallway, not outside entrance, bathroom has glass enclosed shower with hand held wand or ceiling flow! There is a heated towel rack... More

A lovely property on the campus located in a beautiful village. One of the top two most memorable showers of any hotel where I've ever stayed. And lots of other nice touches that brings one word to mind - substantial.

Whoever came up with the idea of building a hotel right on the ONU campus should get an award. Sixteen years ago when we were ONU parents, the closest lodging was in Lima. ONU always seemed to make an effort to make everything first class and this hotel is no exception. A spacious room, plush towels, upscale toiletries and the... More

This is a lovely hotel in the middle of nowhere on the campus of ONU. If located in a city, it would be very popular. Lots of parking. A large awning in case of rain. Easy to register.
