“What a dump!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

The room felt dirty and even though this is a non smoking hotel, the room wreaked of smoke. Felt unsafe also since 8 young men seemed to be loitering a few doors down from our room. Was supposed to stay 4 nights and checked out after the first. Avoid at all costs!

Stayed July 2012

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I was traveling with my children, one who is handicapped. He had a seizure and I pulled off at the next exit to get a room to rest for the night. The had no nonsmoking handicap rooms available, but nonsmoking first floor rooms were available. (should have followed my instincts and left) The "nonsmoking" rooms reeked of cigarette smoke. The hallways reeked of cigarette smoke. When I complained I was told the rooms will be nonsmoking July 1, which is great but this is June 19 and I was told they were nonsmoking. The keys would work a couple times and then need to be reprogrammed.Breakfast consisted of dry (day(s) old) donuts and muffins. No coffee, no juice (machine had an out of order sign). If you are a nonsmoker, and/or disabled I recommend going elsewhere

Found that this location was centrally located to all we were doing - trip to Indianapolis to see the Veteran's Memorial, tour Columbus, visit Nashville Ohio, and take a side trip to Mamoth Caves NP in Kentucky. Also visited Madison Indiana on the way to Cincinnatti Airport. This was an older Days Inn, but the shower was great and the bed and pillows were perfect - these two things are our first criteria of a good place to stay. Considering it was Indy Race weekend, the whole hotel was very quiet. Have family to visit in Columbus and would use this hotel the next time we visit.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back hall were away from the highway.

Management was completely unresponsive to multiple complaint we had regarding room location and front desk treatment. All but told us to stay somewhere else next time. You should do the same.

There are only two managers at this hotel and neither manager had any complaints on the days this guest says he stayed at our hotel. We are deeply concerned about any guest complaints we receive and respond immediately to address the complaint.

I wasn't looking for luxury, but was very surprised. Although I would not call this a luxury hotel, the staff were very friendly and courteous, the rooms were very clean, and the breakfast was more than continental with hot waffles. Certainly more than a "budget" hotel. The rooms were newly carpeted and renovated and I would definately recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Non-Smoking King rooms are all newly carpeted and renovated.

The staff was courtesy and helpful. The lobby is clean.

That is where it ended. The rooms need updating. But, even more than that, a good cleaning.
