At first arrival my room was not ready. Housekeeping was still cleaning, and they did a great job. The room was spotless. I was pleased to have a small fridge in the room. My fellow travelers also had nice rooms. The staff were all pleasant and did their best to be helpful with any requests. I will be staying there... More

The heat was off when we got there, and the heater was so weak that at first I wasn't sure whether it was actually heating. Under the light covers, I shivered much of the night, but the room did eventually warm up. I didn't try the shower because my wife said the water wasn't very warm. She also says that... More

The room was clean and smelled fresh. The beds were very comfortable. Had all the amenities that was need by the family. The location was close to the city of Columbus so you could travel to restaurants and other sites very quickly . Personnel in the office were very friendly.

Aside from the great location adjacent to the Ohio State Fairgrounds, try and avoid this property. I end up here every year and it seems to get worse each year. I travel quite a bit. I know the hospitality business. I am a HHonors Diamond, Marriott Gold, SPG Gold, and a Wyndham Rewards member. I know a lousy property when... More

Eventually heated up if kept on high, but really cold when we first got there.. Room was not really clean. Found crumbs in my bed. And, for me, the bed was too soft. Breakfast was terrible. Overripe bananas, soupy oatmeal, cheap bread. Not enough coffee.

I would recommend that a safety bar be put in the shower. Nothing to hang onto. As a retired person getting up there in years, safety bars are a great comfort to those who are unsteady on our feet. Also the light above the shower needs to be fixed. There should not be exposed wires showing. A real safety concern.

We stay at this hotel every year for the fair. We get two rooms. Been using this hotel for about 18 years now The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds are comfy and the grounds are kept clean. Over the years this hotel has greatly improved. Will stay here again.

Stranded 3 hours from home with car troubles, we lucked into this "port in the storm." Comparatively speaking, the price was very reasonable. Both the night and day clerks were sympathetic, friendly and most helpful. Having a McD's in the parking lot was certainly a plus-the food was good and the staff there were friendly too. The fridge and microwave... More
