We were here for a car event and the hotel set up a car wash area for the show cars - very nice. It was a great location for the Goodguys show at the fairgrounds just about 3 miles away. It's next to OSU, but in July that's not an issue. There was a grocery store, a gas station, and... More

I was greeted immediately on entering the hotel by Chris, who checked me and showed genuine warmth and hospitality and made me feel welcome right from the start. I basically just spent the night after a long day at the Dublin Irish Festival and did not use many of the hotel's services, but from what I saw the hotel was... More

My son's baseball team stayed here one weekend for a tournament. The hotel was very accommodating for our large group. They had a good complimentary breakfast and nice pool area that extended outside to a patio with chairs. Right next to the OSU campus.

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
