Recent guest reviews

Well kept lobby, however, linens on the bed in our room had old stains, pillows were stained, and the floor in the bathroom around the toilet was NOT clean (stains were visible around the toilet - very gross). This set the tone for our stay, and unfortunately we viewed everything in the room as “unclean” as a result. We were on the ground floor, as per our request because of our dogs, unfortunately, we were also a couple of doors away from the pool - the pool pump is VERY loud, can be heard clearly in the room. Pet fee is pretty outrageous: $40/pet, and breakfast (typical fare free at any other place) is additional $8.99/person. All in all - not worth our money, and we will not be staying there again.

I was at the hotel for a meeting. Everything was satisfactory. Lunch was excellent..They even offered to unlock the liquor cabinet so I could have a drink. The meeting room was spacious. Sleeping accomadations were fine too.

The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. We were there for a conference and our wait staff Brenda and Stormy, and chef Larry created a most pleasant experience. Thank you for a great time. The room was comfortable and clean.

All the public areas I saw were clean. My room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The bed provided a great sleep. Keurig Machine in each room with three free K-cups which are replaced as you use them each day. The front office staff I met were helpful. There are plenty of dining options near the hotel. The hotel also has a restaurant. We ate there for breakfast one morning and the food was mediocre at best. Pancakes were crisp and crunchy. Breakfast buffet was only $8.95, which is cheaper than most hotel restaurants I have visited in the last year or so, but I guess you get what you pay for. Other than my experiences with breakfast in the hotel restaurant, I have no issue recommending this hotel.

Family college visit for ONU. My nephew had to have knee surgery. Robin and the housekeeping staff worked to get us into our 2 rooms earlier than expected. Robin and staff are rock stars!! Thank you all!!

Ok so I booked this hotel on 8-5-2017 for Labor day weekend well in advance! Booked a room for my husband and two teen boys so I booked queen beds. They was going to an event just a few minutes away that they usually camp at. We decided to do hotel so they would have hot shower and POOL! They should have told us pool would be closed when I booked the room but said nothing... When they checked in it was late like 10 pm long drive in the pouring rain for 4 hours. Get up to room to find King bed and sofa sleeper. NO not what I booked they claimed it was an up grade... Not an upgrade for the third person sleeping on a 1/4" sleep sofa so back downstairs they went to change rooms. Work out area NOT open... You Should be telling people this. Thanks for doing upgrades and renovations but if people plan trips for your accommodations they expect to be able to use them!

Recently stopped at this moderately priced hotel while in transit moving from Michigan to Georgia. Customer service and front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating as we were also traveling with our parrot. The additional pet fee is $40. Rooms are well appointed and very clean. Since we arrived late and were quite exhausted we decided to have dinner at the restaurant on site. It was surprisingly very good and well priced with exceptionally good service. There is, however, a $9 charge for the breakfast buffet. Not sure I will be in Lima OH again, but if the need arises, I would definitely stay here again!

The staff on front reception were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and comfortable. The location was close to the interstate and shopping. Nothing negative to say about his hotel. Thanks for the good night's sleep!

Clean but customer service needs work. Housekeepers were outside our room talking very loud. One was on the phone with a kid who was super loud. Front desk help had no clue what they were doing and finally asked for help. Not once did they ask how my stay was.

Held a meeting for a group of people in one of their conference rooms. The buffet food was really very good. Good selection. Our server Brenda was excellent and extremely helpful. Will definitely do this again.
