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.

This is the second time I stayed at the hotel and the fire alarm went off both times I’ve stayed there. Last time the alarm went off at 3 in the morning. Also, you can hear everything outside of the room, even the elevator chime that was 25 feet away.

Everyone was very nice and helpful to me and my mother. It was a very nice hotel and Bob Evans was just across the parking lot. Cam checked us in and the Young man the next morning who I thought was Cam was very friendly. We will stay here again as I anticipate my mother having more eye surgery in the near future.! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. And the breakfast was fabulous!

Excellent value. Like the breakfast bar. Close to OSU campus.

Close to ohio stadium. Wonderful free breakfast and staff went above and beyond!

The staff was fantastic and very accommodating. The hotel appeared to be new or recently updated. The room was spacious and clean. The free breakfast was excellent. Hot food, cereal and plenty of variety. Something for everyone.

My daughter attends OSU and I had not been out to see her, so summer was a less-busy time to visit. This hotel was near campus and near her apartment, also close to major roadways to get in/out of the Columbus. Nice room, clean, and really nice (free) breakfast. My only complaints are that the room doors slam when closed, and I could hear the doors in the hallway slamming from in my room. Also the heavy curtains on the window did not cover the whole window -- only the sheer curtains closed completely -- letting in light in the morning and the setting sun in the afternoon. The free WiFi was a bit slow -- there is an option of premium WiFi for about $5/day, but I stuck with the free service. Overall this was a decent place to stay while visiting OSU or an OSU student.

It was a quick overnight stay for the OSU vs Michigan game. Very convenient to stadium. Great decor. Quiet. Had a shuttle to the game. Highly recommend. In walking distance to restaurants/fast food.
