I would highly recommend this place for a weekend getaway. We went with our family of 4 and 2 grandparents to swim and just have a long weekend. Staff was super nice. Does need a little updating and some fresh paint. Hot tub was closed for painting while we were there which would have been nice to know up front... More

The staff did a wonderful job and hotel was clean and well maintained. The POOL was amazing... This is the kid's favorite hotel to visit . Breakfast needs a little work but not bad. We will continue to visit this hotel as often as possible.

We stayed at this hotel for a Hoosier football game. It's about a 30 min drive from the stadium. We stayed in the tower rooms. I would recommend staying in the towers if you want a quiet area as the other rooms are inside door around the indoor pool, game area & hang out area. The rooms are nice, clean... More

We reserved a pool side 1st floor room. The sleeping area of the room was clean but the bathroom needed some attention. The vent behind the toilet was rusty and not secure and there was some mold growth in the shower. Overall an average rating. I cannot not mention the pool and game area. It is very nice. The kids...

If you can avoid staying at the Clarion hotel in Columbus please do! We were there for a wedding. I believe they were going for a fun concept with the pool, miniature golf, game room, ping pong and pool tables. Although these things are attractions, the kids screaming outside your room at all hours participating in the fun land is... More

Even the dog that barked for 3 straight hours wanted out of this place. That was one of the problems with the place. We probably should have called the police and stopped playing games with the front desk over the dog. We ended up packing our stuff and moving to another room. Out dated rooms and finishing a.

My husband and I have stayed at this property for over 34 years. In fact, we honeymooned there and made annual visits with our young children. Recently, we've noticed a decline.
