For a campus hotel, this is unbelievably first class accommodations. The staff is outstanding and the rooms are amazing. Very clean and comfortable! The hotel provides complimentary transport to the airport every hour and a half. They send a town car specially for us and that was completely good will on their part. Well worth the extra money if you... More

Very nice and personal hotel. Room is cleaned twice a day, chocolates left on the bed every evening. Very good tea and coffee selection in the room. It is nice to have a hotel room with two work desks. There is a free shuttle to the airport. Good and reasonably priced breakfast buffet, nice to start a day with waffles.... More

Excellent hotel with helpful and friendly staff. They provide transportation around the OSU campus which was extremely helpful during my stay. Clean rooms and very nice restaurant. They had free wifi and the hotel is right in the middle of the OSU campus - you can see the Show from the window. Great location.

I have stayed here many times in the last 10 years, have used all their services and conference facilities, and eaten many meals here. They are well priced and have excellent service. The rooms are comfortable and appointed with everything you need to work and the food is decent. This is a very well run hotel, friendly and unpretentious and... More

We decided to splurge for one night on our way to a vacation in Kentucky. So, we chose The Blackwell Inn on the OSU campus because of it's great reviews and the price we got for a Sunday night stay. We even ordered a special welcome treat: six Buckeye candies that were waiting for us in our room on a... More

Blackwell is an old fashioned "elegant" hotel used by many meetings on campus. Doormen actually open the door for you as you enter and exit. It is convenient to walk to many campus locations. However, the food is a bit pricey. Good, but expensive. There are a couple of eating places within three or four blocks, but most are a... More

If you have a need to visit OSU this is a great choice. Directly across from the football stadium it is conveniently located to many campus offices. The hotel is well-equipped and the staff is very helpful. Many amenities are a notch above full scale chain hotels and multiple notches above the Holiday Inn Express types. If you are not... More

Everything about the hotel side was excellent. Valet helped us with bags and were very friendly. Check-in was fantastic. We had booked one room and wanted to get a second room for the teens if available. The young lady named Ellen helping us who mentioned she is studying Hospitality at Ohio State was professional, friendly and went out of her... More

Pulled into the Blackwell 4-4-2015. Was staying overnight while attending the Zappa Plays Zappa concert that night at the Newport (concert hall on OSU campus that’s been housing rock shows since the dawn of time. And it looks it!). The Blackwell is beautiful. The staff, mostly college kids, were extremely well groomed, dressed, friendly and pleasant! Although depressingly young! The... More

All of the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was nice and the mattress and pillows were divine. I wanted to do a yoga class in the morning before we checked out, and the free shuttle service both drove me there and picked me up afterwards. Now that is service! Overall, couldn't be more impressed with the Blackwell... More
