Very helpful and pleasant staff

I was greeted very pleasantly at the desk not hurried but treated with courtesy The room was very clean and comfortable Lighting could have been a little brighter for using the computer The internet connection was weak but manageable There was plenty of choice for breakfast and it was well presented and covered over I think this hotel was very good value for the money I have been in much worse hotels that cost three times as much It was near to the university only a five minute drive I will stay here again when I come back to Ohio

Great Hotel for Cheap

Been going to Columbus for nearly 15 years, and after 3 years of poor quality cheap hotels (around $60 or under), this one was well worth the money spent, as there was no problems at all. All of the hotel staff did their jobs and I would recommend this as a great cost-saver hotel.

perfect location for the ohio state fair grounds

We arrived early to the hotel, a room was available and the gentleman allowed us to check -in two hours before " check-in time". That was quite nice. I think a map of some nature would be good to show locations of restaurants, stores, points of interest, hospitals, ect. The phone numbers were available however, to decide on a restaurant, knowing the location would have been very helpful. Overall , our visit was very nice, nothing over the top, but no unexpected surprizes. That's important to me. I would recommend this hotel to my friends. Thanks.
