History


bed and breakfast availabilityWhen the Oklahoma "Sooners" settled this area 120 years ago, they took the name "Norman" from Norman's Camp, created by Abner Norman, a surveyor for the US Government who surveyed the area in 1870.

Norman, known as the home of the University of Oklahoma and its 30,000 students, is the largest city in and the county seat of Cleveland County in the U.S. state of Oklahoma, and is part of the greater Oklahoma City metropolitan area.

The Inn, built in 1994, was custom-designed to create a unique quality and personalized atmosphere, achieving a distinctive ambiance through a combination of elegance and country tradition. Whether you are looking for the perfect place for that special occasion, or coming to Norman, Oklahoma City or the University of Oklahoma on business, Montford Inn offers its guests the luxurious alternative to traveling in hotels at surprisingly competitive rates.

Testimonials


"I am a guest at the University for a few days and my host department had the wisdom and consideration to house me at the Montford.
The Inn is beautiful and important modern amenities have been gracefully added. Yet the charm and comfort of my stay is as much the result of the wonderful staff. P.S. The breakfasts are what they serve in heaven!"
