The customer service at this hotel can not be beat. I originally booked and paid for a room.

Spent one night here to attend two soccer games. Clean room, comfy bed, good complimentary breakfast with both hot and cold food and fresh fruit. We had a minor problem with our keys but this was promptly taken care about by staff. We would stay here again.

Stayed here for a medical appointment early the next day - easy, convenient, and the staff is always the best! It's always nice to have a hot breakfast and the location was great for dinner out the night before. Next time we'll do it for fun!

Once again this particular Hampton Inn delivered on its promise of great service and excellent accommodations. We had a large king room which was way more room than we needed but was really appreciated. The staff at breakfast was wonderful, so cherry and helpful. They even had the Nebraska fans smiling!

This is the best hotel in the Columbus Area. The front desk staff is friendly and welcoming. The room was very modern and clean. The breakfast was great as well. I have stayed in many hampton inns for work purposes, and this one is one of the best places!
