We were coming to Columbus for my husband to attend a conference and decided not to book at the conference hotel, Marriott Renaissance Downtown Columbus, the night before the conference started in order to save money on his conference budget. This hotel was right off the highway and just a 10-minute drive to the Renaissance in German Village with COSI (which my daughter and visited before checking in to the Renaissance) so it was a great location for us. The driveway to the hotel passes a McDonald's and other fast food restaurants so also great for people with little kids in carseats. However it did seem a little spooky driving all the way down to the end of the driveway to the somewhat deserted hotel with the attendant behind class. The room was decent for the price but the heater didn't work on full blast and the hot and cold taps' labels were backwards so I thought the hot water was also out until I figured that out. One or two light bulbs were burnt out and the outside door to the room next door was not fully closed and apparently couldn't be closed (warped?) which made me nervous.

My i-pad was stolen by one of your employees and I have the proof through my i-cloud account, after several phone calls the management refused to even assert the possibility of a mistake on the part of their underlings.
I am very disappointed and will let know my feelings to everybody I know.

My husband & I spent our wedding night at this horrible place... it smelled raunchy... the furniture was tattered and had unknown stains; the bathtub had cigarette burn marks all across the top (this was supposed to be a non-smoking room); molding was detached from the wall; there were cobwebs; the sink was leaning... there certainly was NOTHING renovated about this hotel as the ad suggested! Had it not been so late at night, we certainly would have found another place to stay. We will NEVER stay in another Knghts Inn

I'm writing this review from the motel room. My wife and I are in Columbus for an overnight visit, and being somewhat frugal, we decided to stay here to save a few bucks. This will be the first and last visit to this property.

When we opened the door, we were overcome by the smell of air freshener. The smell was overpowering. We have been in the room now for 2 hours with the door wide open trying to get the smell out.

The bathroom leaves a lot to be desired. The hot water is lukewarm (at 8 pm), and there are rips in the linoleum, molding coming off the ceiling, and no towel rack. You have a hook to hang up towels. The bathroom drain is very slow, but you won't be in the shower long due to the lukewarm water in the shower...

It is also obvious that there is no cleaning behind the window curtain. There are cobwebs there. The AC works, but as you can see from the pictures, the vent is dirty and is hanging from the unit.

On the plus side, there are plenty of restaurants in the area (McDonald's, Wendy's, Subway, Arby's, local Chinese), but it is also obvious that the shopping center adjacent to the motel has seen better days (much like the motel).

OK - it was $40 for a night, but next time I'll spend a few more dollars and stay at another property.

We just got here. I could hardly understand the guy at the counter, but that happens a lot these days. Got to the door, it looked like someone had tried kicking it in a few times. Walked in our room, there was holes in the walls, cigarette burns in the blankets, and stains in the sheets. Walked into the barroom, hole in the door, and the drywall was caving in from all I can assume was someone had kicked it. Holes in the curtains, lighting covers broken. This place is horrible. I don't even want to stay here...
