I was visiting the area on business and stayed in a SUITE (#429) for two nights. I would consider staying here again, though I would probably shop around online for a better price. In my opinion, the suites are maybe worth $100/night (before tax)... not $140-$170. Non-suite rooms, even less. But maybe that's what you have to pay in that... More

Great Fairfield next to OSU which makes it convenient to attend events at the campus. Clean and comfortable rooms with good beds. A large area for breakfast with a large selection of breakfast items and unlike most hotels, they can handle large groups of people at breakfast very efficiently. Will be back when we are in Columbus to visit our... More

This is a good property, in the heart of the Ohio State University arenas, stadiums, fields. We were upgraded to a suite (small but fine) when we checked in. Rooms very clean, great pillows. Check-in and out very easy, service excellent. Recommended.

We stayed here on 6/26/14 and were surprised at the generous room size. Ours had a fridge and microwave which is great when traveling with small kids (4 1/2 year old twins, 2 year old). The room had a pull out sleeper sofa and large bed as well. Plenty of pillows but I would have liked more or thicker blankets... More

This hotel is incredibly damp and moldy, and it's not even that humid outside! When I get up in the morning and get dressed, my clothing are literally damp. When I asked for a dehumidifier ask have asthma, the General Manager (Dean) took two days to get back to me. And replied by slipping a note under my door that... More

The location of this hotel is great - close to everything but quiet and relaxing. The beds were super comfy, the bathroom was nice and big (which is good for best girl friends getting ready together) and the pool and hot tub were a great bonus. The breakfast in the morning was nice and tasty. Everything was clean and everyone... More

Recently stayed at this Fairfield Inn. My room was pleasant, clean, well maintained. The staff was friendly. The lobby and rooms were attractive. The location was just a short, simple drive to OSU and the football stadium. Next door was a plaza with a grocery store, gas station, etc. An OSU souvenir shop was just down the road as is... More

My husband & I were in Columbus visiting family that also live off Olentangy River Rd. This hotel was very convenient to where we were visiting. Only about a 5 minute drive to our family's place. The room was nice (we asked to be upgraded to a King w/ fridge) and although the person at the desk said they don't... More

We had a relaxing stay at this hotel. Just needed a room for a night, and upon check-in, simply asked if it might be possible to have a refridgerator. The very nice young lady who checked me in noted I was an elite member, and graciously upgraded us to a suite. I should remember her name, to give her credit... More
