clean, hospitable and nice location. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, go karts and night life. Price is reasonable and friendly staff. What they need is a 24 hour supermarket in the area for those late night snack.

Upon checking in we found that the hotel was just recently updated, it was needed from our last visit. The rearrangement of where things could be found took a bit of time. The bath towels could be on a shelve above the toilet instead of by the sink in the entry way. Just a little tight here for space. Why... More

It seems they roll up the sidewalks at 10PM except for "Bike Night" at a nearby restaurant. It is so loud you can hear the music inside your room. The room is nice, not huge but clean without an obnoxious perfume-y stench. The AC is kicking! Clean bathroom, comfy bed!

Rooms have been recently updated and fairly nice. Only issue I found was towels are under sink by front door, not in bathroom. Forgot to grab one every day, so dripped water on rug going to get one after shower. Breakfast was good. Only other issue were loose tiles outside elevator on floor 2. Looks like they tried to caulk... More

This is a hotel with great rates in the perfect location. I have stayed here a few times for business. The staff has been helpful. The breakfast is descent and some rooms are far better than others. Of all the times that I've been there I've had to share the hotel with sports teams (high school). Surprisingly I haven't had... More

This hotel is convenient to all the shopping and eating you would like. The hotel itself had a standard room and breakfast, clean but standard. The pool was out of service while I was there. If you are a walker or runner there is not a very good place that I found to get in my miles, lots of traffic... More

I travel a lot for work and thus frequent quite a few hotels in a number of states. My family's recent stay at this location was one of the best hotel experience's that I've ever had. With regard to service, Heidi was very helpful and Mohammad went above and beyond. The hotel is fortunate to have two such employees. We... More

First time I stayed here. I was impressed with the room was very nice, the front desk was curtious and knowledgeable of everything in the area surrounding the hotel. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and you are close to absolutely everything from places to eat, and places to shop. Everything is near by. Texas RoadHouse and Quaker... More

The hotel itself is located very nice. Right by the Polaris Mall and approximately 10 minute drive from the Columbus Zoo. Our rooms were updated. Complimentary WiFi, hot breakfast, indoor pool, and exercise room. The staff was very friendly. Most importantly, everything is clean! The price was good too. I'd stay here again with my family.
