Quiet and clean location right near OSU football staduim for cheap! Lloyd at the front desk was hospitable and helpful on the phone and in person. I was towing a car behind a pickup truck, and he confirmed there would be ample parking. I pulled in late (en route across the US), had a clean room, and was very pleased... More

I recently spent 2 unexpected weeks in Columbus with family member. Varsity in was very accommodating. The room was nice and clean. It was quite. The price was great and with it being very close to Riverside hospital, it was perfect. I would stay there again even if I did not have a family member in the hospital. The only... More

I have stage 3 cancer. We stay at this hotel every time we come to Columbus for chemotherapy. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. They always make us feel welcome. We appropriate the relationship between The American Cancer Society and The Varsity Inn.

While this is an older motel, all we care about is the cleanliness, bed comfort, quiet environs and good shower. This had it all. It's a no-spare-parts-or-frills kind of place. We stayed there the night before my total knee replacement to be in close proximity to Riverside. We were very pleased with this stay.

This was perfect for the price and worked wonderfully for the time we needed to spend at Riverside Hospital. The price was so appreciated. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay there again even if we didn't have to go to the hospital. Our room was clean both times we stayed there. We have absolutely no complaints.

The Varsity Inn OSU North was a clean and friendly place for my team over over 80 kids 12-18 to stay. I was initially concerned that every door faced the outside, but they did have a security guard that went around all night and it is located in a nice area. There was absolutely no problems with our stay, and... More

Booked here for the price...and usually cheap means just 'adequate'. We were very happy with the place. It was VERY clean, the staff was very helpful and nice. The beds were SUPER comfortable. It was overall a very good experience. I'd def recommend this place and we will be going back soon.

This is our "go to" place to stay near the OSU campus - it is reasonably priced (around $60-70 with AAA discount) and very convenient to the campus. The rooms are adequate and many seem to have been recently refurbished. Some of the beds are more comfortable than others and I'm guessing those are in the refurbished rooms. The towels... More
