I had a terrible experience with the individual working the front desk. They were accusatory, rude, and insensitive during my interaction. I needed up speaking to another individual at a later time who was extremely helpful.

Very clean

Conveniently located and in relatively good shape for a newish hotel. Lots of options in the area make stiff competition.

The hotel was very clean, staff were very nice.

Not able to have contactless check in. Which kind of went against everything relating to Covid. Food area and the coffee thing was nice. Room was a typical hotel room. Price was higher then I would normally pay for a hotel of this caliber.

Beautiful surroundings

Great proximity to where we wanted to go. Very polite staff.

During check in I was informed that I had multiple reservations, one of which was prepaid and I was a no show the night before. This prepaid room was not listed as a reservation in my Orbitz account. Katie at the front desk was so helpful in trying to help me figure it all out. Look forward to staying at this location again!

Mike, the breakfast area attendant, was SUPER terrific!! He greeted us every morning with an enthusiastic smile and made sure that we had a pleasant breakfast. He made great conversation and attended to our every need. GREAT GUY!!!

This property was situated perfectly, outside of too much traffic and pedestrians. It was near restaurants and gas stations and OSU stadium. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating.
