“Nice hotel good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Hotel is located right next to several restaurants including Fridays, Olive Garden, and Panera. There are also shopping centers across the street. There are no refrigerators in the rooms though. The room was clean and comfortable. The only complaint I typically have with these hotels is that though a hot breakfast is included, they never start early enough for us to enjoy them. We travel a lot for softball, and we often have early games which requires us to leave at 630 am or sooner. Breakfast starts at 7. You can usually get cereal and yogurt that early, but we were told they would also have pastries and bagels out, but they didn't. This hotel is about 8 minutes from Civic Park, and 10 or 15 min from Whitehall.

Dear Andert01,

Your review is appreciated without guests like you to enjoy and promote our property, others would never have the opportunity to know about how great our hotel actually is.We’re happy that you enjoyed all the amenities that our property has to offer as well as the activities & restaurants nearby.Although we do not have microwaves/refrigerators in the two queen size rooms,we have great Suites or King rooms that offer them or our front desk can arrange for one to be placed in your room for a small fee when requested in advance during your reservation.

In addition when Groups advise us in advance of early games we make every effort to have everything ready and have staff arrive a little earlier to service our guests,the event planner just needs to let the hotel know so we can provide the best service to meet everyone's busy schedules..


Warm regards,

As a frequent traveler, I have certain things I look for. If I'm greeted by warm cookies in the evening - fabulous! Here expect a lovely pitcher of cold water.
Staff - very friendly.
Key - had to be reset every day. Wasn't by a cell phone.
Hot water - on third floor, people weren't getting hot water in the morning.
Breakfast - hot egg of the day, hard boiled would have been a lovely option. Standard biscuits and gravy. The rolls they used to tout as their great item were not heated. Bananas had a fine patina of brown.
Cleanliness - sheets and towels were spotless. No option to hang towels and reuse. Room had a smell of orange as if a room spray was used. Always makes me suspicious. Bath & Body Works toiletries - nice range of product, including lotion.
Location - great. You are right off highway, across from a Walmart and Sam's Club, with Staples and Old Navy near by, Panera.
Overall - perhaps a lower priced alternative for some? But we were there 5 nights, and others in our group were within $2/night staying at a Hampton Inn, where the amenities are much nicer.

Stayed here as part of a large business group. Conveniently located right off of I-70, and lots of shopping and restaurants near by. Rooms were very nice, recently updated, and very clean, typical for the newer Holiday Inn Express. Staff was very nice, and the free breakfast was perfectly fine - good selection, some hot, some cold, and everything was fresh. My only complaint would be that the lobby and breakfast area felt very cramped - probably due to the way it was designed. But, that's just a minor aesthetic issue, certainly wouldn't let it stop me from staying here. Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again if in the area.

We pulled in after a 12 hour drive hungry and tired @ 8:30 pm on the 26 th of March.
The receptionist was excellent.
No reservations, no problem, the check in was quick and easy.
When we asked the receptionist for a good place to eat she recommended a little Italian place down the street. The restaurant and food were great. When we went back to the Hotel we thanked her for the food we just enjoyed. While we were talking to the receptionist she asked if there was anything more she could do for us. At that point all we wanted was a comfortable bed.
The next morning after a good nights rest and a bite from the express breakfast bar we were on the road again.

We would like to thank the night receptionist she was very professional and extremely friendly.

Very nice, fairly new hotel. Good location, next to several restaurant options as well as other general shopping (BestBuy, Walmart, etc). Easy to access off the interstate.

Rooms were not large but were adequately sized and also updated. Bathroom and shower were good, although for some reason we had two bottles of lotion and no shampoo, which was a little annoying.

Breakfast area was a little small but hotel wasn't crowded when we stayed so it was fine. Parking was also adequate but not excessive, so not sure how much space there would be if the hotel was full, especially if you had a trailer like we did. Could be tough. I suppose you could park across the street in the giant Walmart lot if necessary.

Overall a good hotel that I would recommend. I stay at a lot of HI Express hotels. Four stars for me is not a bad review, I've just stayed at a couple exceptional ones. So don't let this review deter you!

We stay at Holiday Inn Express in Reynoldsburg while on our way to Chicago. It is the second time in the last couple of months that we have stayed there. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are restaurants and shopping in the are though we did not visit any of the establishments. The only downside of this property is that it can be difficult at times to turn left out of the hotel parking lot to get back to the interstate due to all of the shopping center traffic on Reynolds road.
