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.

My daughter was staying next door, so the location and price were great. Need to update the TV though. Really bad quality. Maybe add a breakfast bar.

Only for the location

If you want a stay that's as cheap as the outerbelt but still close to Clintonville and OSU, this is a good candidate. If that doesn't matter to you, stay somewhere up north.

El Vaquero, a parking lot wall away, is the best Midwestern version of a Texas version of Mexican food that you'll find out there.
