I have stayed many times at this and other hilton properties (30+ nights per year) and found Dan, a front desk attendant, to be one of the best service providers I have ever met. I had checked in to my room online prior to arrival and within seconds of giving Dan my last name, he had my room keys made,... More

Stayed here on business. No complaints, rooms quiet, well appointed, clean. Breakfast was good and fast. Staff is friendly. I liked the lobby, it's comfortable to relax or work..nicely decorated. The outside patio is nice too! I appreciate there is a bar/restaurant on the premises.

I spent one night (of a two night reservation) at this hotel and had a terrible experience. First, the refrigerator made so much noise, it needed to be turned off. The person at the desk said this was a common problem in many of the rooms. (The hotel did try to make it right. They did give me a coupon... More

This hotel offered great quality for the price. In addition to the low cost, there was free parking and internet. There was breakfast for a nominal fee, and also a Burger King and Bob Evans in very close walking distance, if you prefer other breakfast options. My only negative was that my room was not ready when I arrived (after... More

My husband and I live almost 2 hours from this hotel and we have stayed at this lovely property many times to recover from surgeries, attend doctor appointments, etc.. We call it our "home away from home". Recently, my mother-in-law (who lived in an Alzheimer's facility close to the hotel) suddenly became very ill and wasn't expected to make it... More

The staff was very courteous and the hotel was in great condition; very clean. Would definitely book this location again, and I am a bit of a hotel snop...it takes very little to make me never return to a hotel, but certainly was not the case here. We used the hotel transportation to get to an OSU game, and it... More

An excellent staff - well vetted and presented, ready to cater to your needs/wants. A modern lobby with complimentary goodies (try the lemon-water and cookies - they're addictive), lounge area, TV, well ventelated.

two day stay as I dropped my daughter off at OSU. She used the gym facilities and thought they were good. Check in and out was great, friendly, efficient staff, clean room. Received a fedex shipment and desk signed for it and let me know it arrived. Overall very good stay. Thank you.

We stayed at this hotel while moving our son into his dorm room at THE Ohio State University. It's close to campus and has a very nice lobby and rooms, but the beds were very hard. I think if we hadn't been so exhausted from a six hour drive to Columbus and moving him in, we would have been bothered... More
