great hotel, clean, comfy, very nice, super close to "the ohio state university" - 5 minutes down the road. The hotel was easy to get to and from. The workout room was great and all the machines were in tip top shape. There was a fridge in the room and state of the art keys for access. Breakfast was quick... More

Everyone from the front desk, to the breakfast crew and the GM made us feel special. They were eager to make sure we had everything we needed. The hotel was emaculate and very welcoming. We would certainly recommend this Hotel.

Our room was clean but not thoroughly vacuumed. The hotel is new with a huge shower, that was extremely nice. Bed linens were clean and pillows comfortable. Couldn't get the safe in the room to open, had to call someone . Everyone was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was mediocre at best. Coffee in lobby was great!! I would stay there... More

2 night stay a few weeks after the hotel opened. Very well done hotel. Nice finishings etc. Very welcoming staff. I did notice a few punch out items (as referenced in the review below) but I highly recommend this hotel if you're in the Columbus (especially Ohio State) area.

Hampton Inn on Olentangy was great. wonderfully decorated, many choices at breakfast buffet, friendly manager and front desk staff. Extremely clean and tidy. Good location also. Husband used the pool and loved that also. Two televisions in seating area by breakfast...perfect for watching OSU football!!

Nice, clean hotel, nicer decor. Wonderful service, very helpful, attentive and knowledgable. The location has easy access to Ohio State University and downtown Columbus, Ohio. Would definitely stay there again if going to Columbus, Ohio for overnight visit on leisure or business. Highly recommend.

Facility is new, but not well inspected. Plastic pieces plugged the outlets, which prevented me to plug anything into the outlets. The shower door did not fully prevent water from coming out. I had to be moved to another room.
