Cleanest Room Ever!

This was the cleanest room I can recall ever staying in-- anywhere. Although I was a bit concerned to see that the room doors are accessed directly from the outside, I was pleasantly pleased to see the room was squeaky clean and ery comfortable. Excellent value for the money!

Perfect for OSU visit.

This is right up the road from OSU. I don't like to spend a lot of money for a hotel that I only need as a place to sleep. This place fit the bill. It is no frills. The non-smoking room did not have any smoking odor. The heat/ventilation worked as it should. It was clean and reasonably roomy.
