Standard rooms but you can't beat the location for the price. Nice, clean, safe hotel with a helpful staff. Parking is across the street and costs $10 a night but since the room price is so low, it is definitely worth the extra money. Prime location for any business you may be doing in Columbus.

Rooms can be renovated; Frig was not cold, room was drab. The best part of my stay was the two front desk clerks whom I met at check-in: Shay and JJ - ask for them if you visit. They were very pleasant and jovial. Not as courteous staff upon checking out. Unfortunately Shay and JJ had already left. I guess... More

Just want to commend 2 Super Employees at this Hotel for making our early check-in possible. They listened to our reasoning to get into our room early as we were attending a Wedding and needed to shower/Dress for the Event. Had to travel 3 hours and waiting for regular check-in at 3pm wasn't possible. We needed to be at the... More

We stayed here for 4 days. It is extremely well located, between north 23 & south 23, and you can walk to Short North. Parking is easy in, easy out, and only $10 a night. The room is less luxurious than a business hotel, but clean and very nice with a fridge, microwave, and free wireless. The staff was great,... More

If you are staying in downtown and need to use the Convention Center or Nationwide arena, this is definitely a great place to stay. The workers were friendly, and hospitable. The breakfast was yummy and they even decked the place out for my company that was using the hotel for a conference! We will be having conference in Columbus again... More

I was blown away by my experience with this hotel. Not only was it immaculately clean but the staff went above and beyond their call of duty to make me feel at home.

This hotel was a great find. From A to Z it exceeded our expectations: Location: perfect. Within walking distance of the convention center, the arena and the great Short North area. And still so quiet! Parking: for $10 you can park across the street on a parking lot. In and out as much as you like, even after checking out.... More

The place still kind of smelt like smoke, otherwise I was very happy with this place. It was one of the cheaper hotels but was still nice enough inside. It is very close to High street which is where the majority of the restaurants and bars were. Great value overall and I would definitely stay here again.

There are still elements here of this company's vanilla/plastic suburban interstate exit facilities (cheap on the towels, pillows, continental breakfast), but this location is dolled up enough aesthetically to compete with the other hotels down here in the Arena District. Stayed in a far, higher-floor corner room (624) which kept things relatively quiet. Doors close loud in this facility, the... More
