Recent guest reviews

We were surprising pleased. We were looking for something economical and was concerned that it wouldn’t be a good place because we hadn’t heard of it but was surprisingly pleased.

They only bed coverings were a plain sheet and what looked like a fancy sheet. There was no blanket. There was only 2 towels in room. I had a 2 nights stay and no one came to replace towels or coffee in between. I had to go ask.

Very clean room and easy to find. Good customer service and everything in the room works well.

Good stay with no problems. Will stay there again in the future.

Great location, very close to campus! We were in one of the recently renovated rooms and were very pleased on how they turned out.

Noisy, close to and behind a Wendy's with a drive-thru window open until 2 AM, next to train tracks as well. Thin walls and ceilings allowing noise through from neighboring rooms.

Could be cleaner and I was frustrated that i had to ask and retrieve a third towel . Registered for three never ad 3 towels even thiugh I told housekeeping

It was just fine for a motel. Room was clean when we got there but not cleaned in between days of stay. We had bad experience with people in room next door - walls paper thin - and the headboard of one of the beds detached from the wall during our stay.

Everything was fine except there was cockroaches in the room

It was a good match for the quality, comfort, price and location. Room had a microwave and refrigerator which was really helpful. Located close to Downtown Columbus. Several restaurants and two gas stations located within walking distance. Overall a great place to stay for the price level, comfort and convenience.

Where to begin. I've stayed there in the past with overall satisfaction. This last time I'll just say was bizarre to be kind. I need to contact the property management and discuss, before I write or finish this. I've never had such a horrible experience with a entire evening til even after midnight , started around 5:30. Indas, you need to not only remodel as you are in the process, but remodel your staff and professionalism and accusations that could actually taken to court over. Do a sweep and maybe your future will gain my satisfaction with seeing quality staff.

Great clean I see that they're going to remodel so that should be a good thing
