Trip advisor
  • “Loved the Atherton”

    I was on campus to give a talk and wanted to be as close to campus as possible. It was great to stay right on campus and, as it turned out, the hotel was very conveniently located near the buildings on campus where I needed to be. After reading some reviews here I was expecting to see a dated room but my room was in excellent condition. As others have mentioned the breakfast is first rate - good, hot breakfast food, good coffee and very pleasant service.

  • “Another great stay”

    I had another great stay. I'll be happy to stay here again. You can't beat the location - right on campus, which was handy for my meetings. The staff are friendly & helpful - even brought me a disposable razor & cream when I forgot mine at home. The restaurant has been newly refurbished & is fab.

  • “Beautiful Historical Hotel”

    My daughter and I went to OSU for a college visit and I chose to book us a room at the Atherton for it's location. We were so pleased that we could walk everywhere and never had to move the car. The hotel was decorated beautifully and had many nice touches. There were parts that showed it's age but nothing bad. We had a lovely breakfast and were treated very well.

  • “Cozy hotel with wonderful staff”

    The front desk staff at the Atherton were warm and gracious at ever encounter. We needed directions to Eskimo Joe's at one point and they were more than accommodating with helping us find it. The rooms are very cozy and make you feel right at home. The beds are amazingly plush and well stocked with pillows. The included breakfast is also wonderful and a generous offering. I hope we get a chance to stay again in the future!
