Hotel was ok for orientation but I will never stay there again after we tried book it for OSU parents weekend October 2, & 3 and they almost tripled the price. People who send there kids college can not afford 600.00 plus for two nights for parent weekend.

I was here for a writing conference and found the hotel outstanding. Our room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and well-appointed. The front desk staff was considerate and helpful. Good breakfast choices. I found the lobby pleasant and large with plenty of comfortable areas for relaxing and visiting. The rooms that were used for readings and workshops were large and set...

Beyond Expectations! The front desk staff was so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The housekeeping friendly when passing them in the hall way. The breakfast was good and had a lot to chose from. We were in town just to get away and we will most definitely be back!! The room with the king and couch area was great- its nice... More

I'm not one that uses the pool or hottub when I am out of town for business. I look for cleanliness of the hotel and room and the friendliness of the staff. I am very happy with both. Nice size suite. Great nights sleep. Isn't that really what you're looking for in a hotel??

Quite misleading to find it here as well as in google maps. I wasted time in looking for it, until gathered somewhere that it was sold to OSU and no more an hotel. Meanwhile, another Holiday Inn Express was built north from here.
