Recent guest reviews

Like any other Candlewood, this facility is nice, but back-to-the-basics. It is intended for those requiring an extended not expect a free breakfast or toiletries.

This was an excellent value. The location is the main reason we stayed at this facility. We liked the close proximity to so many restaurants and retail stores. We found it very clean and we'll maintained but felt the bed did need replaced as my husband and I both found it uncomfortable.

I booked this hotel for my family to attend my nephew's reception at the James A. Rhodes Office Tower in Columbus, OH. The hotel is in a prime location north of Columbus outside of the I-270 Beltway. There are restaurants, and retail abound for all tastes. It is across the street from Polaris Fashion Place and a Target is nearby. Good breakfast and amenities. My family enjoyed the indoor pool as it was late March so the Ohio weather did not stop the fun.

A clean room with kitchen, utensils and even dish detergent. We brought our 6-month- old baby son, and he can stay comfortablely for a night. We brought bassinet on our own. Convenient location with Costco, Target and Walmart not far 3 mile away from here.

For a 2 star hotel I couldn't have for a better stay at a 4 star hotel. The staff was excellent, friendly and very helpful. The room was very clean.

Entrance tile and bath tile in room sticky. I arrived late, 10 PM. Did not want to deal with it then. Told desk next morning, said he would handle it. Was taken care oc upon return in evening. Both morning and evening desk person poorly trained for questions asked. . Snack items available in lobby area way over priced. Not best Candlewood I have been in.

We like booking here for our out of town staff. Service is nice

The hotel was great. Friendly staff, clean rooms, soft drinks and snacks purchased on the honor system. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance for a good night out.

All and all, everything is good, clean room, good location.

Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Service at front desk was little slow due to only 1 person working. Reserved for 4 adults bathroom was stocked for 2 called front desk for addtional items was told towels are available at front desk for pick up. This was not my previous experience with this same hotel location nor any other hotel I have stayed in.

Not only was this hotel very clean but the kitchen area had a full size refrigerator, dish washer, 2 burner stove, all cooking and eating utensils, coffee pot and toaster. Although the staff could have been friendlier I would definitely go back.

This hotel was the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff was friendly, site was well maintain and clean. I will stay here again!

This was just what we needed for a one-night stay: indoor pool, clean room, DVD player in room and the kitchenette was a nice surprise. We were right beside a Target and TONS of restaurants.

I have to say, we loved the hotel! A full mini kitchen was awesome. TONS AND TONS of shopping, places to eat and things to do. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Perfect location--across from Polaris shopping and next door to Target. Loads of restaurants--a couple walkable. Access to I-71 was a breeze. The first floor room was huge, new, clean, and comfortable. This was an unbelievable price for a 3-star hotel located right outside a metro area. I would definitely stay here again. But, next time remember to bring my swim gear!

The hotel was clean, near everything I needed... Only down side is that the rooms are cleaned after each stay and on a weekly basis while you are there. Wasn't an issue for me but if you want daily maid service it could be for some. Pool (indoor) was nice, staff helpful, 24 hour pantry that wasn't terribly over priced for hotel store (full size candy bar 1.00 as an example). Has kitchenette and a full size fridge. I would stay again without a doubt

management will serve people behind you in line first.
