“Do not stop here, keep driving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I do not even know where to begin!!!!! I work with a company that travels nationwide and we book anywhere from 25-33 rooms at a time with hotel properties. The hotel "claimed" to be well maintained but that was so not the case. Several of my rooms tried to go to the front desk and get their key re-keyed and "the machine was broken". When asked how long until it could be fixed the response was "our new machine will be in the following day". Okay so on a Thursday I am asking for a key and told that the machine wouldn't be replaced until Friday, WOW!!!! The rooms that you see on the internet are not the rooms available at this property, in fact the rooms at this property are so disgusting I wouldn't let a homeless person stay in there. First there is so much mold that one of my rooms had a 3 month, yes 3 month, old baby that developed respiratory problems and had to be taken via emergency vehicle to the childrens hospital in Columbus. Secondly, the hotel staff mainly the front desk lady, refused to give any compensation for the rooms, or offer a solution to fix anything. Thirdly when we decided to voice our opinion about the situation she called the police on us trying to kick us out of the hotel.
HA HA!!! Since we had paid for a week up front and in full, and keep this in mind we had 26 rooms, the police informed her that there was nothing they could do to make us leave. I would strongly suggest that you spend a few extra dollars and go somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A nicely remodeled room with clean kingsize bed. The bathroom was clean. They have an Indian restaurant attached to the hotel, food was excellent. Check-in was quick and attendant was polite and accommodating. This is an older hotel but it seems the management is working to upgrade the hotel. They have a laundry room, vending machines, free continental breakfast in the morning. A refrigerator and microwave were both in the room. I would stay here again the next time I am in the area.

Sheets stained, mold in shower, side entrance door would not lock, cop stopped my wife in parking lot and advised her not to stay here with teenage daughters. Went to check out and they would not refund money. Did give me $5 discount. What a joke.

It's a motel 6, you shouldn't except much, but you shouldn't except a bunch of bad stuff. The guy at the counter was kind of weird, it was in a great location though, with 4 restaurants within walking location, and I felt pretty safe there. The rooms weren't that bad either, we spent 2 nights there, would probably stay there again if I went to Cedar Point again.

I have stayed at several motel 6's and have usually had a good experience for an affordable price....this time, however, was not the case! We were planning our trip to kings island for this july, 2012 and i reserved our room over the phone. We get there around 11 but check-in is not until 3pm. Thats fine, we go ahead, pay and let them know we will be back...BIG MISTAKE! We get back around 9pm. We were greeted by the rudest guy ever! Finally find out room and what a total disappointment! It had the joining doors for rooms..luckily our family was in the room next to us, seeing as how the lock was busted! We couldn't lock the door! Anyone could have just came right in on us! The bathroom was disgusting..moldy..gross... It was so noisy, loudly slamming doors all night long. There was nothing extra in the rooms. No coffee pot, hair dryer, iron...nothing! The pool wasn't even open! (although it smelled of chlorine when we walked in....probably to cover the smell of god knows what) Lets just say we more than over paid for the room we received!! Would i ever stay there again? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!! Oh, and if you pay by credit card..check with your bank, my mother was charged twice!!

Room Tip: do not choose a room from here! Best tip i can give anyone!
