We stayed here when our daughter had her visit for OSU. They do give OSU special rates so the price was very good. The only problem that I saw was our bathtub was stained and the bathroom itself needed to be upgraded. The room was nice and breakfast was very good. It had scrambled eggs, sausage, hard boiled eggs, waffles... More

First, let me say, I would never give a review while I am still staying at the hotel, but in this case, I really need to make an exception. Great customer service...top to bottom. We had a small issue with the shower rod in the bathroom and it was immediately fixed and they left a note asking if we needed... More

It was really close to the campus which was great. Older facility and it was clean. Breakfast was good and the staff was quick to refill things. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was difficult to find the entrance, especially at rush hour which is the time we arrived.

I recently stayed at the Fairfield Inn & Suites on two different weekends in November 2014. Overall, the location is great if you are visiting OSU or have a student there, which I do. The rooms are very clean, and the breakfast is good. It's not great, but they do have hot food, and plenty of seating in the breakfast... More

Booked our rooms as a group & found out that there was a rate difference among our members ( not due to AAA or other discounts). Management refused to honor same rate for all. Then overcharged my credit card. Hotel itself was nice. Good sized rooms. Clean & comfortable. Staff very friendly. Breakfast buffet was great! Waffle station & lots... More

Went down for state football playoffs - arrived @ 4:30 and were immediately welcomed and checked in. Had to wait for elevator - only one and quite small. The property is close to campus - which made it quite convenient and there is a small shopping enter next door - however it was pouring rain and so we elected to... More

This hotel is very good for visits to The Ohio State University. It is about 1 mile from the football stadium and next to a strip shopping center with a Kroger store. We were there for an OSU football game weekend. The staff of the hotel is excellent. They were very helpful and got us into a room by noon... More

This hotel is in a very quiet area (it's across from a large cemetery). It's your average Fairfield Inn. What sets it apart from the rest is the staff. They are very helpful, friendly, courteous and ready to help their guests in whatever way they can. This hotel offers a complimentary hot buffet breakfast. The "fresh" fruit was a little... More

I stayed here while on business in the area. The front desk employee, Sharon, was extremely friendly and helpful and went out of her way to answer questions about the area. My room was upgraded to a suite and had a small separate area from the bedroom with a couch and tv. My bed was very comfortable but so close... More
