I stay here at least 4 times a year when I have treatments at OSU. Pam has always been very accommodating, making sure that I get a HC room even if it requires some adjusting. Great service, rooms are always clean. The Best!

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.

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
