We had an issue with check out times but it was quickly fixed and our stay was even discounted. The staff are always super nice and helpful as well. I've stayed here every year since 2010 just because I like it so much. The rooms are always clean and booking is no hassle at all. Plus it's a short walk...

Very hospitable and Andrew brought us complimentary toothbrushes when we forgot ours. I don't usually use this chain but rates were amazing straight across from the convention center and no problem neighbors. We will be booking again.

Our stay here was fine. We were in Columbus for a concert at The Bluestone and found this to be an affordable option for 2 nights stay. The room was spacious and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave in the room. However, the headboard and shelves looked like they hadn't been dusted in quite some time making...

We were looking for a hotel close by the Convention Center and this fit the bill. It was just right across the street and down a little ways, probably about a 5 min. walk. The hotel was very nice,very clean, especially loved the wood floors. And even thought the breakfast didn't have everything most hotels offered, it was adequate. We...

Great looking hotel for the money. We only stayed for 15 minutes to drop some stuff off for rock on the range. Ended up giving the room to two younger girls who got their car towed. But great place for staying for rock on the range.
