Recent guest reviews

Rooms have a mildew / mold problem, are very cramped, and breakfast is disappointing.

The room had a microwave and refrigerator. It was pretty clean. The shower was hot. It was close to our venue. The price was ok. The room served its purpose just nothing spectacular about it. Will we stay there again, yes.

I killed bugs in the room all 3 nights of my stay. Hotel staff allowed loud partying with blaring music out of open-doored rooms all over the motel with wandering groups of loud people until 5 am. I heard another guest at the front desk refusing to stay another booked night because heavy rain caused their room to flood. I can't believe all this happened at one motel.

Walked to and from OSU stadium!!! McDonald's next door was a nice convenience also!

Nice hotel providing what you would expect for this accompation level. First night we were there an alarm kept going off in the middle of the night which made that first night difficult. Rooms back up to the parking lot and not much to block parking lot noise. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Was not disappointed given the price.

Run down hotel. At first when entering the room it smelled very musty and like mildew. Our air conditioner would not turn on -but we soon found a reset button on the power plug. We think the musty mildew smell was coming from the air conditioner unit. We had not remote on the TV and it was mounted crooked on the wall. There was no channel guide to be found either. The bathroom had multiple long black hairs in the tub and on the toilet. If you looked in the corners of the room it was caked with dirt and dust. While the beds sat on pedestals. Behind the beds where pop caps and wrappers of trash. Lastly the carpet had 10-15 large stains throughout the floor. In the end I actually thought about sleeping in a trash bag for protection. I will say the bed was semi comfy as I slept fully clothed. In the end I can’t believe Days INn would license their name to this owner and why they won’t get my vote again. Trust me looking at the other rooms they were just as bad plus a room two doors down at the door open from 1030pm till 7am all while it rained all night.

The hotel itself did not look very appealing from the start. It just looked dirty. The first room they gave us was supposed to be non-smoking. It clearly was not. It smelled terrible, there was only one towel, one bar of soap and the bathroom was moldy. Luckily they did change the room for us right away and the new room was cleaner, didn't smell as bad, and had plenty of towels and soap. They even had two bottles of water on the counter. Nice touch. The Ohio State Fair was at the same time as our stay. The hotel was selling parking to fair-goers. The lot was full and we couldn't even park at one point. That was very frustrating. I learned we will never travel to that location again during the Ohio State Fair.

Great place that has been remodeled since I was there a couple years ago.

I would recommend this hotel to my friends because my friends are practical and on a budget. If you're a hotel snob, don't think about it. We spent a week here while showing animals at the Ohio Expo Center. We saved about $350 and it's only 1/4 mile away. I'd stay there again. Just don't go in with high expectations.

Upkeep on the rooms is sub par. The first room they put us in had masking tape holding up wallpaper in the bathroom and the toilet seat only had one bolt holding it on ( the seat swiveled) the second room stated “ non smoking” but the burn on the comforter and obvious smell of stale old smoke in the room told us otherwise! The beds were comfortable and we did get a good nights sleep though!

Pool was broken, air conditioner leaked everywhere

The pool is closed, the picture on Orbitz site is not this hotel. Room floor was stained, chair was dirty, room had a horrible odor and smelled like smoke even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room. When we laid on the bed we could feel the springs. We checked out after one night.

The bed was horribly uncomfortable. Springs in the mattress were directly pressing into my back. AC unit blowing very stuffy smelly air into the room.

We booked a king size room here bc it was close to the fairgrounds. Other than the proximity ti the fairgrounds I cant really give any positive notes. When we checked in we were given a queen size handicapped accessible room and told they had no kings and I must have messed up the reservation. I checked, we reserved a king and they said sorry we dont have any. They didnt realize the next guy checking in was with us and had reserved 3 days after us. They gave him a king. We decided we could make do and went to our room, There were holes in the carpet and when we checked out the bathroom it was dirty. like really dirty. the shower floor was black and stained, there were trash wrappers still in the floor of it. We found hair everywhere and the handle of the shower was broke so we had no hot water. For the high rate we had to pay, it was a horrible experience.

Beds were comfortable and room was clean. It was the perfect place to stay for our trip. Would definitely recommend. Nice that they had breakfast in the morning too.

The hotel staff was nice enough to change the room from a smoking room to a non smoking room with that being said i think the room was ok it did smell a bit moldy to me. The location was the best part of trip. I thought that they should not have had parking for fair either made it hard to park for people who paid for there room.

The room was clean, didn't smell, and was relatively inexpensive. The night manager was friendly and very helpful. With that said, the pillows were small squares and horribly uncomfortable. The overall feel of the room felt more like a cheap budget room than what I paid for it. I'd gladly pay more money per night or drive a few more miles to stay in a much nicer hotel. For what they charge, I definitely expected more.

Reserved a room with a king size bed a few days before. When I got there my room had two full size beds. Called the front desk and was told they had no king beds available, which I had in writing on my confirmation email that I reserved a room with a king size bed. It's pointless to reserve anything as thing hotel. Hotel staff did absolutely nothing to make things right.
