Stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip and enjoyed the stay, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I especially enjoyed the Managers reception on Wednesday night and playing Wii bowling with Manager Alex Settlemire. He had arranged food and refreshments for the event and it was a fun way to spend our last night at the hotel.... More

The staff was exceptionally friendly, the place was very clean and had cool glam decor and that's what counts most. The breakfast bar was missing most hot items but coffee and muffins were plentiful. The pool was ice cold and very loud with kids' water features splashing and making an awful noise. Kids were disappointed that the water slide was... More

I wish they were all like this. The hotel is fairly new, has a welcoming contemporary lobby, nicely appointed hallways (for a hotel at this level) and spacious, clean, well appointed and well lit rooms. I find this hotel to be a very good value and a welcome stopover on a long road trip. I was greeted in a professional,... More

New holiday inn with very modern decor and a nice mini-water park. The purple and grey decor is very today with modern amenities such as big flat screen tv's, "rain" shower heads & computer/business center. The kids loved the indoor pool with 2-story water slide, small frog slide, water buckets & water basketball. Hot tub was nice, but always packed.... More

I recently stayed in the HI Express polaris in room 602 for a week. This had to be the most abysmal room I have ever stayed in since I have been traveling for work some ten years ago. Black sofa, black dresser, black and dark burgundy carpet and dark burgundy curtains. The wall behind the bed was deep purple. What... More

Stayed here two nights for a little family get away. Great location right off I-71, north of Columbus, near lots of restaurants and a mall. Hotel was clean with a great pool.
