Close to OU and Highway

Pleasant staff. Clean. Lots of breakfast choices. Free wi-fi. Indoor pool. People leaving the pool walk out into the carpeted hallway leading to the elevator. The carpet and elevator floor are always wet. Only one elevator made for some very long waits coming and going.

Great stay - friendly staff

My daughter, granddaughter and I came to Columbus for the Equine Affiare. The hotel was easy to get to, but parking was tight as there were some trucks with trailers which took up a few spots each. The staff were exceptionally friendly, the rooms were clean and quiet, and the breakfast was good. The only complaint I would have with this hotel is having only 1 elevator. This made for a long wait as the hotel was full the 2 nights we were there. Overall, a great place for the money

Great place, but loud neighbors

Had it not been for the heard of hephalumps above me from 11 pm -2 am each of my three days, and the blaring TV from across the hall, this would have been a great stay. As it was, there was little that could be done with the noisy neighbors, and they really detracted from any otherwise pleasant stay. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The room was as expected...just louder than I needed.

An OK Hotel, Great Staff

Everything was pretty average except for two things. 1. The front desk clerk was outstandingly helpful with information I needed regarding the concert I was attending -- 5 stars. 2. Either the ceiling was thin or the kids upstairs were jumping off the beds -- 1 star on that front.
