Its A Very Good Hotel , But You Need Wristbands To Swim && You Only Get Four So Don't Bring A Big Crowd! But Its Really Nice ! Staff Are Very Strict About Kids Everywhere , Breakfast Was Good.. But You Should Go We Had No Regrets, Everything Was Fine.. I Throw A Big Birthday Party && It Was Fun && The Area Is Very Pretty At Night

This IHC property is the best in the Polaris area for the rate. There are lots of hotels in this area and I've stayed in most of them. Rooms and common areas are nice. The houseekeeping staff does a good job EVERY DAY on room cleaning. The walk in showers are fantastic! I'll be back.

Room Tip: Only the single bed rooms have the walk in showers

Stayed here for part of our daughters birthday present. Our whole family had fun. The pool was great and not crowded ever when we were in there. It was a quick check in even with signing up for igh membership. The room was plenty big and was very nice. Breakfast was delicious as there was plenty to choose from to eat. Had a problem with loud kids in a nearby room at 1230 at night but the front desk took care of the situation very quickly which we were greatful for. Will be back again!

My wife and I stayed here overnight being in town for a rodeo. The location is perfect. Just 10-15 min north of down town. Right off I71. The Polaris/Gemini Place exits are very nice. Plenty of shopping with the mall and Cabelas close by and alot of restaurants. The hotel was very nice. Everything was clean. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast in the morning was very good. They had lots of options. Swimming pool was available but we didnt use it. I would definately recommend this place to anyone. You wont be disappointed.

Loved this hotel! Holiday Inn Express is our "go-to" chain when we are out of town and this one proved that once again, HI Express is fantastic. The people were super sweet, the room and hotel lobby were spotless, the kids loved the pool/slides. I am in LOVE! Loved the modern decor and the convenience to shopping, restaurants, interstate and our family. I HIGHLY recommend!

This hotel is in a great location north of downtown Columbus. Easy access to freeways, directly off of main corridor of restaurants and shopping centers, free parking and internet, comp breakfast, less expensive night stay, big rooms with big beds, and a pool area that will knock your socks off -- especially for the kids! The hotel is new and decorated very modern; front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Only complaint -- we were in a suite and killed several bugs over our three-day stay. Maybe cause it was cold out? No worries -- everything else was wonderful, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
