We stayed here for three nights on a recreation trip.
First impressions: Very modern building, obviously newer. (When I looked at Google Maps, it still shows a dirt lot, so I guess it's that new.) Front desk was very polite and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about the area. The room was very good sized and quite "modern", but that can serve as a downfall for some, which I'll explain later.
The good: Bed was large and comfortable, lots of pillows. TV was large enough for the room size, with decent amount of channels. I don't know what some of the other reviewers had for breakfast, but we had NO issues with food quality or selections available. I think sometimes, people expect Bob Evans quality (which is right next door, btw), but want if for free for all of their family, instead of dropping $$$ at said restaurant. There is a VERY cool outdoor sitting area off the main lobby, with a small waterfall and a gas fire that burns at night. We went out and sat there for awhile each night, instead of being cooped up in our room. WiFi available in all areas of the hotel, although the signal was a little weak in that outdoor area. No need for that to be the case! We needed info on the bike path, which is just across the river from the hotel, and the front desk person knew all about it. LOVED that! Also, was recommended to a very good Mexican restaurant, which was probably four miles away. Loved the fact that he told us about what he thought we'd enjoy, not just what was "around here".
The parts to be aware of: The bathroom is separated into two parts, one with a toilet and a sink, the other with shower and a sink. If you are with your spouse or sig other, not a real problem, but if you are sharing a room with others, or there are kids/teens involved, it does cause a little privacy issue. Second, the doors on these are VERY cool, but again, lacking in privacy. Instead of traditional wooden doors, they installed sliding doors with translucent glass! Very chic, but some travelers will be VERY turned off by this. The room doors all shut very loudly, if you don't catch them with your hand, so you can constantly hear the slamming of other doors from the hall way. As someone else noted, there are train tracks directly behind the property, but other than the rumble of the engines, it was really not a problem. (No whistles, just engine noise.) The hotel is in a great location, but that means (especially during rush hours) lots of traffic. It can be difficult to get around, but you are right next to a college of OSU's size. You have to be realistic. There are lot's of things within walking distance, and never once did we feel unsafe doing this. Pool was basically a lap pool, not a traditional place for kids to play. HVAC did a decent job of holding the room at the temp we desired, but the fan was not nearly loud enough to drown out hotel noise. Bring your own fan, or other white-noise creator!
Overall, absolutely would recommend this hotel, as long as you are aware of those items above and they are not going to surprise you!
Hotel is L-shaped. We stayed on the inside of the L. No traffic noise, but occasional train noise.
