For the price, the room is extremely outdated. We were very disappointed with the noise from the hall, the lack of technology and that the AC unit was unable to keep the room cool. In our opinion, you can find a much better room for a lot less money.

This Hilton Garden Inn was a stopover on our trip back home. The hotel was modern looking and very well kept. The lobby was beautiful and inviting. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful in assisting us to find a place to dine in the area. He gave us menus and coupons for the restaurants. Great service.

Good hotel but very expensive and a bit out of the way…everything is “a la card”. Shuttle service is not offered from and to the airport leaving you with the option of getting a cab for $40 each way. Speaking about shuttle, it will take you only 3 miles away from the hotel…The shuttle drops you off in the area... More

My husband and I stayed here on two separate occasions about a week apart. The staff was welcoming and very accommodating. The lobby was a nice place to meet friends/family who were either from the area or also staying at the hotel. There was a small bar to get a beverage. I had thought the breakfast was included, but at... More

Needing to stay near Riverside Hospital I could only find a room here. All other hotels in the area had no vacancies d/t a huge car show and some sporting events in town. Very pricey ($180) but nice. The staff was very welcoming and even though it to was filled to capacity, I found it quiet and restful in my... More

I stayed at the HGI near the airport last week and the HGI near OSU this week. Both are good options depending on where you need to be. This HGI is close to the campus and, like the airport HGI, better than expected. The lobby is well decorated; the breakfast was very good with fresh fruit and personally made omelets;... More

This hotel was in a great location. I was able to commute to my place of business with no problems. However, I don't feel the staff there was friendly or was able to accomdoate my needs all of the time.

The headline says it all. The hotel is new and feels very fresh. It's also extremely clean and shiny. But what really makes this place is the friendliness of the staff. Front desk (especially), wait staff, housekeepers and even the Chef! Good location for business travelers and folks related to OSU activities, with lots of restaurants nearby.

Not a bad local hotel very close to OSU. Staff pleasant. Average hotel swimming pool, fitness center a little better than most hotels of this size but small. Rooms size adequate. Internet typical Hilton - slow but should be OK for checking mail. No upgrades for Hilton Honors members. Close to freeways. Plenty of places to eat. Plenty of free... More
