“Nothing fancy but clean and well-kept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Stayed here for just one night for a family function. The room was very clean and well-kept. The only staff member I met was the woman at the front desk - she was very friendly. The pool is small but it was warm and the kids had fun in it. The drinking fountain in the pool area was out of order but there was cold bottled water in the exercise room next door. The continental breakfast was the typical eggs, waffles, pre-cooked bacon, pastries, etc. The room was nice and quiet, didn't hear a peep all night. Convenient for shopping and within walking distance to a couple of restaurants. The room had two double beds. My back was sore the next morning but this is probably because my 6-year old was hogging the bed.

Room Tip: Our room was the on the top floor which is usually the quietest.

My sisters in law, mother in law and daughter shared two rooms for our annual Christmas shopping trip to Columbus. It was our first trip to this hotel. We were all happy with the cleanliness of the rooms. The only downside is the rooms are small. The beds were average in comfort, but were only full-sized beds. Overall, a little tight for 3 sharing a room. The best part of this hotel was definitely the location to shopping.

Room Tip: Location is off the highway, so nice and quiet.

Close to shopping, but the week before Christmas traffic is a problem in this area.. Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable, The separate shower and vanity are a plus. Breakfast was adequate and 24 hour coffee was nice. We have stayed at this pet friendly hotel before and will do so again.

Room Tip: Paid slightly more for a larger king room and was worth the money to do so.

Stayed here two separate nights the week of Thanksgiving. The front desk person was friendly and welcoming during check-in. Both rooms were clean (412 & 108) but the heat in both rooms was very difficult to regulate; was either too hot or too cold. The unit in 108 blew right on you in the bed closest to the window. This hotel is very conveniently located to Interstate 71. There are MANY restaurants and just about any store you'd want for shopping. The hotel does offer a free breakfast but we didn't take advantage of it.

Hotel was very nice - great location! Staff members very friendly. Pool/hot tub area very clean & peaceful. Room had a slight musty smell as we entered but that certainly didn't turn us away. Breakfast was great, very fresh & very well kept! Love that coffee is available 24hrs a day. Will stay again!

Really can't ask for much more at the rate we received. Very friendly staff, nice clean room, free breakfast, wi fi and parking and a great location with quick easy access to all locations in Columbus. The only negative I would have is that the property is in the suburbs so finding a place to eat later at night is a bit tough.
