Quick getaway

Would recommend Tue, Sep 8, 2015
This was an excellent value. The location is the main reason we stayed at this facility. We liked the close proximity to so many restaurants and retail stores. We found it very clean and we'll maintained but felt the bed did need replaced as my husband and I both found it uncomfortable.

Young People's Art Exhibition Reception

Would recommend Tue, Jan 20, 2015
I booked this hotel for my family to attend my nephew's reception at the James A. Rhodes Office Tower in Columbus, OH. The hotel is in a prime location north of Columbus outside of the I-270 Beltway. There are restaurants, and retail abound for all tastes. It is across the street from Polaris Fashion Place and a Target is nearby. Good breakfast and amenities. My family enjoyed the indoor pool as it was late March so the Ohio weather did not stop the fun.

good family choice

Would recommend Wed, Dec 31, 2014
A clean room with kitchen, utensils and even dish detergent. We brought our 6-month- old baby son, and he can stay comfortablely for a night. We brought bassinet on our own. Convenient location with Costco, Target and Walmart not far 3 mile away from here.

Candlewood--Polaris-Westerville, OH

Would not recommend Mon, May 5, 2014
Entrance tile and bath tile in room sticky. I arrived late, 10 PM. Did not want to deal with it then. Told desk next morning, said he would handle it. Was taken care oc upon return in evening. Both morning and evening desk person poorly trained for questions asked. . Snack items available in lobby area way over priced. Not best Candlewood I have been in.

The hotel was great. Friendly staff, clean rooms, soft drinks and snacks purchased on the honor system. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance for a good night out.

Go somewhere else.

Would not recommend Sun, Dec 2, 2012
This hotel had rude staff and a non-existent manager. I stopped by the front desk four times to ask about reserving an extra one bedroom suite for a week to accomodate guests coming from out of town. Every time I was told that I would have to speak to the manager (???). I don't understand why I had to go through management to reserve a suite but they told me every time that he would be in the next day and they would "leave a note" for him to contact me. He never did and we made reservations somewhere else, for them AND me. We ended up at a cheaper hotel with no pool but the staff were more helpful and we had better service overall. We were even closer to the shopping center.

Time saver

The hotel has an indoor pool and the location is great with a lot of restaurants and shopping within walking distance, but there are also a LOT of other hotels within a mile radius.

THE WORST, BY ALL MEANS

Would not recommend Thu, Oct 18, 2012
I reserved a $185 suite, they gave me a regular room and would not credit me the difference. The lady on the front desk actually looked me in the face and told me that "even if you pay for a suite online, we will do our best to accommodate you and put you in whatever is available. So if they don't have an available suite, you will get a regular room without a credit back". So basically when you pay for a bigger room with those guys, you're just gambling. When i asked for a refund the girl looked like she was going to jump over the counter and bite my head off. She was very rude and defensive. For two days i tried to talk to a manager, they kept telling me he's not in. I called the website that i booked through and had them call the general manager, no luck!! he said the policy is the policy. Besides the complete lack of customer service, this place was less than average. The lobby looked like the waiting area in my doctor's office and the room was short of acceptable. Moral of the story, I would rather sleep in my car than to step a foot in this place again!!

Friendly staff, mixed amenities. Get trip insurance in case you decide to go somewhere else...

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 1, 2012
I got in after a long day and late flight to find the elevator was broken - no big deal with just 4 flights of stairs to climb. Staff was nice and apologetic. Got upstairs to find flickering hall lights and the entire floor smelling like smoke - especially the room. Surprise! Make sure you're guaranteed a non-smoking room or don't be the last one to check in. I went here for location, but now I can see there are plenty of competitive hotels in the area. Staff was nice but this place needs to either step it up or drop their price. Maybe it was bad luck for me, but get trip insurance in case you need to cancel and go elsewhere...
