We stayed at this hotel two nights to attend a conference at Ohio State University. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and willing to meet any request. The restaurant and bar were nice. Would stay there again if in the area!

Stayed the weekend while attending the grand opening of Sullivant hall @ OSU. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff were professional and polite. I would have given it a five but the pool area in the morning did not have clean towels and the area around the pool still had the remains of a gathering... More

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.
