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.

Stayed at this hotel for a family reunion in Columbus. Location is great - just across from Polaris mall. Had various family members arriving at different times and dates, some with pets. Staff was welcoming and very accommodating. Rooms are comfortable and my wife especially loved the mattress, too soft for me, just right for her. The firm pillow needs... More

We stayed here overnight the past weekend on our way back from Cleveland. The room was clean and comfortable. The room had a comfortable king sized bed. This room was suitable for an overnight trip and had a small coffee pot in the room. It had a large flat screen t.v. and a comfortable chair and stool. There were plenty... More

I stayed one night when the renovations were being done but there wasn't much that disrupted my stay. I returned again a month later and renovations seemed to be done and rooms look very nice. Both times my room was clean and the breakfast area was well maintained with good food. The staff was very friendly. I was there on... More

They just renovated this property, and the results are very nice, except for the boneheaded way they redid the window coverings. They asked me when I was checking in if I minded the first floor, and I said, no, and then we got into the room and found that the CURTAINS DO NOT CLOSE ALL THE WAY!!!! There are sheers,... More

Coolpuhl3, General Manager at Comfort Inn North Polaris, responded to this review

Thanks for your kind words about our refresh. The new standard window treatments include a blackout curtain, a sheer, and a long decorative curtain nearest the bed. It is a little frustrating that some guests have overlooked the blackout drapes behind the sheers, as this maybe indeed your case as well. Please contact me directly if I can be of... More
