When I pulled in and immediately saw the sign "Park at your own risk", I honestly wondered if I picked the wrong hotel to stay at. To me that is a flag of being in a questionable neighborhood. The gentlemen at the desk was not overly friendly either. My room was basic. It had all the new Red Rood furniture... More

It doesn't have bells and whistles but it checks off the basic boxes very well. Clean, Good Location, Updated. If you are looking for a good place to stay a night or two and don't need the extra luxury...this would be a good choice.

This hotel was clean and comfortable. It smelled new. I liked the wood floors. The desk clerk was prompt at getting the extra towels and washcloths that I needed. All of the appliances that we used worked (hair dryer, refrigerator, TV, clock radio) Nice and close to OSU Wexner Medical Center.

The place was clean smelled clean. Service was good. For a last minute reservation Check in was easy. If they only had breakfast that would have been great. The beds were very comfortable. I called the front desk for extra pillows and they brought them up to my room within 10 min. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Lots to like in this remodeled property in a great location near OSU and shopping. They forgot to clean my room one day...Hmmm. Also I told them at check-in I would not be using the safe,but was charged any way. I was told this would be straighten out at check out which turned into a hassle.

Always so grossed out at the thought of bugs and other people's 'dirt' in any place I sleep. But here, our room was very clean. There were no traces of bugs of any sort, and everything looked fresh. It is centrally located to stores and restaurants. Great place to stop on our long journey! - It is near the Ohio... More
