“After a Failed Attempt at Our First Hotel - This Hotel Saved Us!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My friend and I traveled to Columbus to see a concert. We booked another hotel, and stayed there the night prior to checking in to this hotel. Things at that hotel were awful, so we searched for another place to stay. We found this Best Western. The price was reasonable, the area was right around where we wanted to stay. The staff was very friendly, and overall we had no complaints. It was perfect for what we needed, and I would definitely stay there again.

This was our second trip to this hotel, both one month apart. We paid using travel points both times, though the price online was quite reasonable when I checked. Especially when you include a local shuttle bus that will pick you up from the airport and daily breakfast.

It is a 3 star hotel. It doesn't pretend to be more like some hotels. The rooms are standard sized hotel rooms with decent mattresses and furnishings. The rooms and the hotel are mostly in good shape, though are not new and in pristine condition.

The indoor pool is nice fairly warm and clean. As is the hot tub though a few of the jets are broken and bubble instead of blowing.

Breakfast has a decent amount of variety, but is not gourmet. The daily eggs look prepackaged or um well, powdered. You can also choose from make your own waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, juice and of course tolerable coffee.

The bad points...
The shuttle is only within 5 miles. The carpets can get a bit dirty looking in the hallways and some of the common area furniture is stained. Especially near the elevator. The staff for the most part is great, though there have been some notable exceptions who were not. This is why the rating is only a 4 out of 5. I would stay again though.

Very close to the airport, which makes the hotel convenient for an early morning departure. On the flip side, for those without a car the airport shuttle runs only every half-hour.

The room was nice size and clean, but with a few quirks:
1) WIFI didn't work
2) Room smelled of cigarettes, even though the property is supposed to be non-smoking.
3) TV remote didn't work.

I was at this hotel for a 2-day conference. The room was very clean, had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The TV was great and had lots of channels. It was extremely helpful to have several outlets so that we could charge our phones, Kindles and computers. The staff was very helpful and always cheerful. The meeting room was adequate, although we were supposed to get a snack of fruit on the first afternoon that never materialized. There is a room next to the meeting room that is used by the staff, and each morning they were so loud, it was very distracting. The leader of the event didn't seem to mind and just went on with the conference. This hotel is near the airport, but I was aware of only a few planes going over.

Monthly trips to OSU. Need a decent place to stay at a great rate because of multiple trips. This hotel is clean and quiet and a great hospital rate is available. The staff are very helpful and friendly. A breakfast bar is very helpful because of early doctor visits. We travel five hours and are ready to relax and get a good night sleep before a long next day. We find that Best Western is a good fit for us.

I have never had a problem with a Best Western. I joined their rewards program. I am a Hilton Honors Member, but to just stay to catch an early morning shuttle to the airport, I don't want to waste my points. The rooms even look like a Hilton. The staff are always great, and I get to park there for way less than other hotels. I recommend it.
