As long as you realize you're not staying at the Ritz, than this hotel is a good value for what you get. The rooms have been recently renovated, and there are all the commodities you would expect for paying less than $100 a night.

This hotel was just what we needed. We were attending a concert at OSU and needed a nice, convenient place to stay for 1 night. The proximity to OSU was great!

All of the rooms have been redone with nice furniture and flooring etc. Rooms are good now even though the outside looks pretty dated and it is a hotel with all of the doors opening to the outside which is pretty old in feel.
