Perhaps the worst motel/hotel on I-71 south. I stopped here at 330 am with my two daughters out of desperation and exhaustion. While the desk clerk was friendly enough, the room was straight out of a crime drama. When we got to our room, the first thing we noticed were all the holes in the walls. The outlets were poor...

Conveniently located by the Thirsty Turtle bar, this place is heaven on earth! The bathroom provided running water and we had TWO beds instead of one. They had no problem allowing smoking which was a plus and we only lost power twice during our overnight stay. The sheets must have been starched like the fancy places because ours were almost...

I agree 100% with the reviews mentioning the issues with safety and cleanliness. I stayed in Sept 2013 and the heating/cooling system was still broken. The room smelled like an ash tray and based on the number of cigarette butts outside my door, I don't think there are really any non-smoking rooms at this hotel. There was only a fitted... More

This motel is easily the worst property at which we've ever stayed. Run-down rooms, horrible carpet, burn holes in the bedspreads, an air conditioning unit that didn't work, so we spent the night hot and uncomfortable. It was clear that this hotel is also used as a home by people who can't afford to rent a house; looked more like... More

While my room was OK, there is something not quite right with this location. But, if you look at the neighboring properties you will quickly notice the whole neighborhood seems run down, with a lot of empty businesses. I didn't have any problems, but I didn't feel like sleeping too soundly or for too long. I'd pay a bit more... More

Obviously when I stay at a budget hotel I don't expect anything above basic, but I at least expect the room to feel clean. The room looked & smelled very dirty. Everything was run down & old - didn't even want to take off my shoes. My biggest complaint was the heating system - there wasn't one! The room was... More

This hotel is not as bad as other travellers are saying. It is very convenient to Columbus attractions, such as Crew Stadium. It is among other hotels and off busy highway; which they are easy to get to from here. It has a hairdryer, coffeemaker, refrigerater, and microwave. The room was comfortable. Do not have much for a continental breakfast-... More

Was attracted by the very low rates, room was run down as was the motel, carpet was dirty, people were very noisy and loud all night long. Scratching motel 6 off my list as a place to stay.
