My husband and I traveled to Columbus Ohio for the Wizardworld Comic con. We don't have alot of money to spend and rarely travel. When we do, we try to stay with the cheapest hotel and usually end up having a HORRIBLE experience! So we were so suprised at the pleasant and helpful staff and the GORGEOUS room! We were... More

I was upgraded to one of their newly renovated rooms. I really appreciated all of the outlets for my electronics. This was also the first room that was bright with their lights. I hate hotel rooms that feel like bar.

Good if u wanna b close to the school, not over priced. But it's pretty much just a room, they have microwaves & refridgerators, also close to stores, gas & food. They let I bring your pets. Over all it was clean & nice well b back

This property was recently updated and it shows! Nice laminate flooring throughout. New sink and toilet. Flat screen tv. My daughter and I were in town for the Fleetwood Mac concert at Nationwide Arena. It was a quick drive as this property is right off of Route 315. There are several restaurants directly across the street from the property. Being... More

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.
