We stayed here on our way home from NY. It is located right off of the highway. We were tired and decided to get some rest and get on with our drive the next morning. Found the hotel on my app and made the reservation. It was quite pricey for the area and the SAME

Hi Mackenzie! Thanks for asking, you are absolutely right ms0812 we are a little less than a mile. If you make a LEFT out of the hotel it is much faster, shaving about 5 minutes off your walking time! Please feel free to contact us directly at 614-216-2060 if you have any more questions! Trusha, Manager

Hi Gobux, Thank you so much for your question! I think you may be mistaken. Our location does not have water around it as we are located in Columbus, Ohio. While we do wish we were beachfront, especially this time of year, we do not have villas at this location. Thank you for your question and please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you find the right hotel! Yours in Hospitality, Trusha
