We stayed for one night during Buckeyes football season and were quite pleased with the customer service, room condition, and location. The room was clean and in good condition, no scummy bathroom, tub, etc. I thought perhaps the location might be a little noisy but was pleasantly surprised that the night's sleep was restful. The hotel is located right next... More

We weren't looking for anything fancy, but needed to be near campus. The hotel was fine and seemed safe. We were able to park right outside our door. Beware that they charge you for the safe in the room unless you indicate you want it off the bill. This is mentioned in the paperwork you sign when you check in.... More

Thanks for a very quiet stay in a clean room! The check-in staff were pleasant and quickly processed our request for a room. The location is near major high ways and while could be potentially noisy, it certainly was not. Thank you again for a quiet, restful stay in a clean room.

This is a very nicely renovated property on the edge of the Ohio State campus. It is at the tip of a peninsula separating two major roads with a shopping mall adjacent. My only complaint with the property would be a result of the outside noise. The rooms have been completely redone and are clean. Gone are the carpets and... More

This is an ok place that we picked for it's closeness to the University. It is easy to find and was right off the highway. The room was updated and had a flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge.
