Close to OSU, Close to restaurants, nice, clean pool & hot tub, exercise room, lobby and fantastic breakfast -- professional service every step of the way. Only bad note is lame wifi in room, but they will give you an Ethernet cable at desk if you ask. (Awesome Internet speeds wifi in lobby and through Ethernet.) Bad wifi probably due... More

I stayed here for a pre-operation morning stop over. My daughter's surgery was at 5:00 am and the hotel is close to OSU medical center. The women at check in was quite pleasant despite the lobby being a mess due to their polishing the floor and causing customers to walk half way around the hotel in a blowing cold snow.... More

I think the breakfast was good and the variety was fairly good. The staff, Annette and Anthony were nice and friendly. My family was... More

A very enjoyable place to stay when in the area. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff were amazingly helpful and caring. The price was low considering the amenities included. I know you will enjoy your stay as much as I did!

My mom and I stayed here while my dad had open heart surgery at the nearby hospital. Due to unexpected circumstances we had to extend our stay and the front desk staff were very understanding. We also had to utilize the laundry room which was convienantly located on site and clean. We were able to see during this 2 week... More

Our stay was necessitated by a family emergency being treated in the nearby Riverside Memorial Methodist Hospital, a half-mile away. Unfortunately our stay has been indefinitely extended, and we are quite happy to have Holiday Inn Express as our host. A recent water main break on the first floor was quickly repaired and the new wallpaper is going up; this... More
