Good, clean, reasonable

I needed something close to the OSU Medical Center. This hotel was clean, convenient, and reasonably priced. The breakfast in the morning was a plus. I plan to stay there again.

College visit

Great hotel close to OSU campus. Was a short 8-9 minute drive. Clean room, comfy bed. Great free breakfast. Didn't swim but pool and hot tub looked great. Would definitely stay here again when visiting OSU area!

Everyone was friendly and helpful. The lobby and room were tastefully appointed and very clean. The pool was a delight. The breakfast buffet was an exceptional value with a large array of choices including fresh pancakes! This was Columbus at its best. Thanks!

Awesome Place to Stay

We were in the area for a girls softball clinic at OSU. The hotel exceeded our expectations!!! Pool/hot tub area was great. Fitness center was small but my daughter appreciated being able to work out the night before camp. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Beds were amazing & for once the shower was fantastic. Water pressure I've never seen before in a hotel!!! The bathroom was also spotless! We will definetly stay here again when we come to the area. The location to the area of campus we were going to was fabulous. This Holiday Inn is well beyond a mid priced hotel!!! Staff was courteous & friendly, just an all around great place to stay!!!

Great place to stay if you need to be near campus. Suppose you could walk but with all the snow not sure if there was a side walk to utilize. Driving is still a minute or so drive to the Woody Hays Athlectic Center.

Fall Commencement OSU

I stayed here for my sons Fall Commencement at OSU. My plane was 5 hours late arriving in Columbus my rental car left a bit to be desired and I checked into my room 6 hours later than planned. What a pleasent surprise that was. Staff were warm and friendly and my room was absolutely OUTSTANDING. I stayed two nights and was so comfortable while there I didn't want to leave. So close to everything to do with the campus and the activities we had planned for the weekend. Next time I'm in the Columbus area, I will absolutely stay here. Wonderful experience! Thank You all!
