Athens motel closes, visitors left without rooms
(2007-03-26)
(WOUB) - A motel in Athens has closed it's doors, apparently without notifying customers that have reserved a room.

The Athens Lodge, on Columbus Road, booked many Ohio University moms for the Mom's weekend in the beginning of May.

Several mothers have contacted the Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau, wondering why the Athens Lodge has not picked up its phone.

The Bureau didn't have any luck getting through either, and has put out a news release explaining the situation.

During Mom's weekend, Athens hotels and motels are usually booked to full capacity.
