hotel sits just North of OSU and very close to Riverside hospital. It's just far enough outside city for business travelers and traffic is not too heavy in morning heading downtown. Hotel itself is nice. As I always say, I'm a Hilton guy but won't be a repeat customer if I have other choices. I've been here multiple times. Even... More

The hotel and everything about it was nice and clean. 2 things stand out as issues. They charge for bfast unless you are on some type of program or special stay. Yet walk across the lot to their sister hotel, Hampton Inn and bfast is free. The shuttle broke down when I needed to return from my conference. The clerk... More

I have stayed at this place twice. Once during the summer of 2014 and in late fall 2014. The hotel is clean and the rooms comfortable. On my second stay, I could hear the person next door yakking on her cell phone so the walls are a little thin. The sandwich I ordered from room service was surprisingly good. The... More

The location of this hotel is ideal for visiting our grandson at the university. This was a return visit as our first one, last summer, was quite enjoyable. Everyone was very welcoming, as was the environment....a lovely see-through burning fireplace on a cold winter's night, drinks, warm cookies...and complimentary newspaper in a lovely seating room. We didn't eat there, but... More

The hotel lobby has a fireplace and is very cozy. The king-room is adequately sized and had a bonus refrigerator, microwave, and single pot coffee maker. I was able to select my room online prior to check in. Every area of the hotel was spotless. The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating. Additionally, there are several restaurants nearby in...

I have stayed at this property numerous times. I keep coming back, even though I have many options in Columbus, because the staff is always friendly and helpful. I was snowed in and was able to extend my stay with no hassle. I am greeted warmly by name, and always given great recommendations for things to see and so while... More

I was really impressed with the Hotel. It was clean and very comfortable. Check in was quick and check out was quick. I highly recommend this Hotel. The bed was excellent I had a King size bed. It was more comfortable then a room with 2 double beds. I will always get the king size bed from now on.

Stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night so I could attend a race in Columbus Sunday morning, Great location on 315, easy highway access, friendly staff, good rooms and parking. There is a bar and restaurant, but also local places to eat nearby as well. A little hard to see from the road, it is behind a Burger King!

Please be aware that this hotel is using old dial-a-mattresses - I had mine switched out but is still defalted over the course of the night - This is not a place for the business traveller looking to get some sleep before a big presentation.
