The hotel was very clean and like new. Room was very good. The reason I didn’t give a 5 rating was because we chose this hotel to take advantage of the shuttle service that was list on the website and was disappointed that it wasn’t available.

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel was immaculate and post-pandemic had a large number of people staying there. The rooms were updated and the lobby area was spacious. After staying at two Hampton Inns earlier during our trip, the breakfast offered was a significant upgrade. The breakfast hosts were gracious, aimed to please and offered a large selection of food. Will say at this hotel again when visiting OSU.

We’re out visiting colleges and this was our first stop. We will stay here again if accepted to OSU! Excellent Water pressure,soft absorbent towels, room was clean, beds were comfortable and it was quiet. We did not check out the exercise room nor the pool.

Great staff! Great location! Plenty of parking! Good restaurants in walking distance!The pool was undergoing renovation, but I don’t use the pool anyway so that didn’t bother me at all. Hampton Inn has never disappointed us.

Hotel is conveniently located to The Ohio State University. Always reliable and consistent. We have stayed here several times during football season so we can walk to the games. This was our first stay in a hotel post-Covid (we hope) and we felt safe albeit we are fully vaccinated.
