For the money and for what it is, it is okay. There are certainly worse places to stay in Athens at this price point.

I have stayed in a worse hotel in Athens, OH when all options have been taken during busy weekends (Parents Weekend, Football Games, Home Coming, etc), so I have to be appreciative of this. We arrived and the AC unit was not turned on, so the room was hot. Fortunately it was a window unit and it worked very well. The AC also created white noise so we did not hear anything outside our room. The room was basically clean. The breakfast was not good (frozen waffles, the weakest coffee ever, packaged oatmeal). The one good thing was the towels were nice and were normal bath towel size.

Avoid this place

Posted Sep 19, 2016 on Hotels
Being from out of town, we wanted to book a reasonably priced hotel for OU move in weekend. We are not familiar with Knights Inn but the price was right. What a mistake. We will not be back. First off, 3 out of 4 of us are allergic to feathers. When we were asked if we could switch our down pillows and comforter we were flatly told "NO." The first night, we used our rolled up clothes in a pillow case. The second night, we went to Wal-Mart and purchased our own pillows. The room just felt dirty. This was confirmed by the cobwebs in the bathroom. I don't think this place has been updated in 40 years. The atmosphere is a little scary  Being from out of town, I had also booked this hotel for Dad's weekend. Thank God I was able to cancel it and find something else. Yes, it will cost me more money but it is well worth it to not stay here.

Don't do it.

Posted Sep 2, 2016
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Gut it.
Location: It's a beautiful area of Ohio.
Book another place. The clerk barely gave me a blanket so I wouldn't have to use the disgusting comforter. Do Air bnb instead if there are no reasonably priced motel in Athens. The AC didn't really work. The shower was a joke, not really hot water. The room was nasty but not the worst motel I've ever been in but really not worth spending this kind of $$.

Should have received Full Refund

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Late checkin, last room, bleach smell, 6 gnats, 1 fly. Housekeeping said "I'll take care of it" but then the ants appeared. I left. Only one-half refund received, should have been full.

Scary

Posted Aug 18, 2016
First impressions....the parking lot is not well lit and the entry/lobby looks like garage sale or thrift store decor. Yikes There were people sitting in plastic chairs outdide of the two rooms next to mine drinking beer and smoking...they stopped and stared at me when i was attempting to get in my room. This was slightly scary for a women traveling alone. Inside the room. The door had windows that were painted over and had peeling stickers, dirt stuck to old glue. Thankfully a new lock and chain! I looked around and contemplated sleeping in my car. The entire room was maple wood paneling with random drilled holes from things that were moved and not patched. The outlets were yellowed from age. There were holes in the bathroom door and a missing mirror on the door (complete with hanging clamps and dirt ring still on the door from where it hung). There was a missing tile and hole in the wall in the bathroom. The decor had mauve curtain (didnt cover the whole window area) and dirt on the window sill that i coukd have carved my name in. red and brass lights with one missing broken cord cover. Some kind of printed comforter and (new) green and blue modern geometric carpet that matched nothing. Yikes. I could go on....but i think everyone gets what a disaster it was. The good...crisp white sheets and no bugs...i looked!!! Hot water. Internet worked. I got in too late to move and had to be up by 6am to leave for an important meeting. Otherwise, i would have left. Scary place.

not happy

Posted Aug 18, 2016 on Hotels
upon arriving I was charged eleven dollars more because of extra person. when making reservation it didn't go up on price because of people staying as I searched being one or three of us staying. clerk would only accept cash for extra person. then getting to the room we discovered they did not have fitted sheets on bed. they had flat sheets instead of fitted which as I slept came untucked and was just a wad under me and I was laying on mattress pad when I woke up. the pillows were the flattest i had ever seen. the floors of the whole bed area and by the sink were like a laminate wood. walking around the room my feet became filthy dirty. i can deal with the other parts being not that great for the price I paid but what makes me mad was..... i think the clerk pocketed the extra money for the extra person. i mean why could I only pay in cash..... shady

I would stay again

Posted Aug 11, 2016 on Hotels
It was the lowest price for the time I needed. It was very clean and the staff was kind. I had a king bed and the room was equipped with a small table and 2 chairs which was nice. The air conditioner was a single unit for the room, so it was a little loud, but worked well. There were a variety of places to eat nearby. The free breakfast was nice, simple, bit it satisfied. I would consider staying again.
