Burr Oak Lodge & Conference Center

Amazing!!

Everyone we came into contact was amazing! Somehow our pet did not get added to our needs but the management there was accommodating & let us bring her so we didn't have to go home. Misty at the front desk was so nice & very helpful. Flora was our waitress many times was so caring & felt like family!

Baymont Inn & Suites Logan

OK hotel

I am used to staying in hotels in Amish Country in Millersburg, Berlin area. I was disappointed in the smallness of the room and the tiny size of the bathroom. I felt somewhat claustrophobic. There was plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt and coffee in the breakfast room, but we were all disappointed in the rest of the breakfast bar. The other side of our stay, the staff was wonderful and very helpful. The room was very clean. Our grandson enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and pool in the evenings. The location was perfect for being close to Rt 33 which made it quick and easy on the rainy day to go into Lancaster and enjoy a movie and shop. It was great to be close to all the park facilities. Shopping, restaurants, and the area information center are very close. The hotel's information in the room to find places was wonderful, as well. So, it was wonderful and a little disappointing all at the same time. I would recommend to friends but...I will tell them what to expect .

Fairfield Inn & Suites Athens

Nice hotel close to OU for our purposes

Everything about the hotel was great except for the pillows. They only had down pillows & they are just uncomfortable

Hampton Inn Athens

Quick overnight stay

Overall, the hotel was clean and the room was good. We just didn't have any hot water. Since it was late, we really had to get to bed. Staff just said they didn't know how long it would be. They didn't even offer another room or anything. It happens but he supervisor did nothing but make a phone call. I do not blame the facility at all. Like I said, it happens. Manager just didn't have the right skill set to assist us.
