Good enough

Would recommend Sat, Oct 10, 2015
Close to the highway, right next to a McDonald's so you can get breakfast before hitting the road in the AM, and close to Ohio State's campus. I used it as a staging area for moving home after school, and it did the job.

great for Ohio state football weekend

Would recommend Sat, May 23, 2015
this hotel served our needs as expected. There was anything that stood out but the room was large, clean and comfortable. We were a short drive from the campus, game and area which had plenty of bars and restaurants. Was it a 5-star hotel, definitely not but was affordable and perfect for our needs since we were only really there to rest and sleep. Would definitely consider this in the future.

Great value for Ohio State trip

Would recommend Mon, Nov 3, 2014
I had no misunderstandings about this hotel, therefore i was pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the room, cleanliness and proximity to the Ohio State campus. No complaints from our end! The room was spacious, clean and quiet. We would definitely stay here during a future visit, especially since the cost was about 50% of what most rooms were going for in the area on our particular weekend. Is it a 5 star hotel, but i did not expect it to be. We will definitely be back!

Nightlife hint

About a 5 minute drive away is High Street where you can find a ton of bars and restaurants. There is adequate parking for a small fee ($3 for up to 3 hours) in a nearby parking garage or if you are lucky enough to find street parking. Awesome college town!

Perfect for the Fair Grounds

Would recommend Mon, Sep 15, 2014
Have stayed three years in a row. Rooms are clean. Continental Breakfast wasn't good on Fri., but had more on Sat. Could be better. Friendly. Could certainly use some updates but the price is good. Planning on going back next year.

Dining

MiMi's and Marcella's are both very good.

Close to Columbus Crew Stadium

Would recommend Mon, Aug 18, 2014
My second year in a row staying at this hotel for a Columbus Crew game. This hotel is close to Crew stadium - but not much else. If you are looking for various restaurants, etc., this is not close to them. However, I was able to walk to/from the Crew game with ease. Room was clean, comfortable. I plan to return next summer if the schedule allows.

A place to stay

Would not recommend Mon, May 5, 2014
The hotel is just that. Nothing is terribly wrong but nothing is more than ok, especially for the price. If you just need a place to sleep for the night it will work.
