We booked four days in November when I was scheduled for surgery at Riverside Hospital. The first night was the night before so that we wouldn't have to make the drive early in the morning and then my husband stayed on during my hospital stay. The location is so close to the hospital that he was able to walk back...

My wife was having some outpatient surgery in the medical complex nearby, and the physician's office arranged for us to stay here for two nights. It met our needs perfectly. It is not a five-star property with high end amenities. But it was clean, quiet and convenient, and had everything necessary for a comfortable stay. There was a gas fireplace...

Had a family member at Kobackers hospice within easy walking distance. Lovely little cabin in a park setting. Facility had kitchen with fridge and microwave. Comfortable living room with big screen TV. Separate bedroom with roomy bath. Very quiet. Everything was clean (to my standards which are pretty high). Lovely walking trails abound with plenty of flora and fauna including...

A priest friend & his brother stayed one overnight & were very comfortable there, since there is a queen size sleep sofa. The breakfast at the McConnell Heart Health Center was a nice additional touch.

A colleague and I each rented one of the lodges since we wanted to stay close to the Bing Cancer Center for a training course. We were both very pleased with the spaciousness of the lodges and the overall cleanliness (had some concern about that when I read some of the other reviews). The bathroom was huge with the sink...

Had to change rooms x3. First room smelled so bad due to food left in fridge. Second room smelled trash was over flowing with opened bottled water sitting out. Third room they did not approve with security so we walked to the room in -10 degree weather carrying our stuff! And had to drive back to front desk to get...

This is about our fifth stay here. We are here almost twice a year. Location and amenities are still excellent, but the windows need washing, the wooden blinds are very dusty and the carpet, particularly under the bed, needs a shampoo. I hope the cabins will get the attention they need soon.

We spent 10 days at Big Red's Lodge this month, visiting family and friends. The location is perfect, the bungalows are wonderful, nicely furnished and the wooded setting is inspiring. We go to Columbus every summer and while this was our first time at Big Red's, we're already planning to stay there same time, next year!

We stayed here for a weekend on business. Wow. What an excellent option near the medical centers and Ohio State! On check in, they provided access to the heart center gym and coupons for snacks in the cafe. The rooms are actually 1/2 of new, adorable bungalows in a private wooded area. It was very quiet, serene and lovely. The...

Nice cottages, but there is only a microwave and coffee pot in the kitchen area. Two burners or a small oven would be wonderful. Very comfortable sitting area with gas fireplace, but in the colder months, cottage never got toasty warm. Great access to walking paths and to the fantastic McConnell Center with its outstanding fitness facilities. For the price,...
