I rarely write reviews but I felt compelled to do so to share my experience. I had never stayed at Holiday Inn Express and I must say the room was very nice. The bed was comfortable. 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

Beautiful facility, great location, reasonable price, and fitness center. Enjoyed the hot breakfast every morning which had a wide variety of delicious food. Room was large, clean and very comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. There was an unfortunate water pipe break on the first floor but the owner responded quickly and was able to keep the property operational. Will definitely... More

Assuming you have a car, this is a well-managed, clean, pleasant hotel that's reasonably close to OSU. (It's walking distance to the OSU stadium and to some of the north campus facilities like the Ackerman Road medical buildings.)

Recently visited OSU and stayed at this hotel. Convenient location to campus and restaurants in area. Staff and accommodations were very good. Complimentary breakfast was better than most. Would recommend this location to use as a base for OSU visit.

Hotel was great. Surpassed my expectations. Close enough to the stadium for walking or they had a shuttle available as well. The rooms were very nice, clean, and big. Check in wasn't until 3pm, we showed up at 10am and they let us check in because the room was already ready. That was an extremely nice surprise! Pillows are very... More

Shanda5987, I am very pleased to hear that the front desk team was accommodating, especially the early check-in, which we always try to accommodate. It is also nice to hear you enjoyed our shuttle, it is service many guest and very few hotels in the area offer. If I may be of any assistance in any way please do not... More
