“1 night stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Hotel was very clean and reasonably priced. Amenities were very good. We had a medical appointment at the Ohio State Medical complex, and this hotel was very close to where we had to be. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to visit the OSU campus for any reason.

I stayed here for a night while on business and I wanted a hotel fairly near the university but one that was clean. This one fit the bill and was a fairly good deal. The rooms were fairly nice and quiet and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was fairly good as well. Overall a fairly nice hotel. It is not close enough to walk anywhere though so keep that in mind.

This was a very comfortable, spotless and well located hotel near Ohio State . We have been coming to this area for years and this was the best priced spot for a relaxing stay. There is a small indoor pool but it is perfect for the kids . The staff was always working hard to please the customers. Look no further this will suit most people looking for a pleasant ohio state stay. The breakfast deal was well worth arranging for. More than a basic breakfast, individually cooked for each order.

Room Tip: I couldn't figure out how to adjust the beds ask for help it is probably worth asking.

Great location to stay for the Buckeyes. Came in for Ohio State Football game and chose property for location, past experience, and brand. Hotel exceeded service expectations by shuttling us to the Schottenstein Arena and back after the game. Would absolutely stay there again.

We stayed two nights at the HGI and were very impressed. HGI's are similar physically but this hotel set itself apart by being immaculate with a friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms and lobby were exceptionally clean. The front desk, restaurant servers and housekeeping staff were all exceptional. Each greeted you pleasantly and were glad to help if needed. The breakfast omelets were very good, better than most. The rooms were quiet and comfortable with a microwave and small refrigerator. I'd rather have a small coffee pot than a Keurig but the coffee was fine. It allowed us to brew both decaf and regular coffee quickly. I would definitely recommend this hotel if in the area.
The location is very close to and ideal for visiting the Ohio State Medical Center, Ohio Stadium or Ohio State. The view from any room is not so great. The hotel is in the midst of an older shopping center. Our room looked onto a Kohl's parking lot but we were not staying there for the view.
I commend the management of the hotel for the quality of their staff.

Attended a seminar at Ohio State about a week ago, and stayed 2 nights. The hotel is newer and the staff is great. Easy check in and the rooms were spacious and very well kept. I guess if there was a negative, you have to do a U-turn to get to the entrance of the hotel. Not really a big deal. Overall, a great hotel in a great location.
