The hotel has two rooms with a balcony on the second floor, one is a standard two bed room and the other is a suite. We were lucky enough to be in the standard room. The room was really nice, and the view even better.

This is the second time I've spent a night here and I was not disappointed. The room was clean and reasonably sized, and the amenities -- free wifi, cable tv, and refrigerator in the room, were appriciated. The complimentary breakfast included both warm and cold fare, and the freshly-made cinnamon rolls were excellent. But most of all, the property is... More

I started there for a graduation for 1 night. It's convenient...just off the highway, close to restaurants, and a short drive to OU. The room was a good size as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable firm but not hard. I slept really well. The breakfast was good...though it was a bit crowded (The hotel was sold out due... More

The good: Lots of well-lit and convenient parking Rooms and common areas were very clean WiFi worked great Beds were comfortable, good pillow variety Front desk staff was very good The not-so-good: Costs more per night on weekends than the top luxury hotels in downtown Cleveland or Columbus. You read that right. Despite the high cost, thin towels and bargain... More

We were greeted by a friendly and efficient staff who welomed us and our two big dogs with open arms. Pet rooms are available, check for details. The city park with a designated off leash dog park is located behind the hotel! Clean modern rooms, nice pool, daily newspapers, good breakfast. Located just off the freeway with an Applebees and...

We stayed at this hotel last minute and it was great! Very clean room, and bathroom. I was very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable our room was. They only charged us an extra $15.00 for our dog which I felt was very reasonable. We will definitely be back if we are in need of a hotel and driving through this... More

Nice hotel with clean rooms and really good breakfast. Pet fee just $15. Staff really nice and helpful. Nice dog park next door and restaurants all around the area. Just on the freeway exit... I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here on a college visit trip while visiting Ohio University. The place was very clean and I loved the choice in types of pillows! Also it is pet-friendly and there is a dog park (converted from a baseball field) right behind the hotel, what a great surprise!
