Motel 6 Columbus OSU

Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

I have stage 3 cancer. We stay at this hotel every time we come to Columbus for chemotherapy. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. They always make us feel welcome. We appropriate the relationship between The American Cancer Society and The Varsity Inn.

While this is an older motel, all we care about is the cleanliness, bed comfort, quiet environs and good shower. This had it all. It's a no-spare-parts-or-frills kind of place. We stayed there the night before my total knee replacement to be in close proximity to Riverside. We were very pleased with this stay.

This was perfect for the price and worked wonderfully for the time we needed to spend at Riverside Hospital. The price was so appreciated. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay there again even if we didn't have to go to the hospital. Our room was clean both times we stayed there. We have absolutely no complaints.

Room Tip: We needed a handicapped room, and it worked out very well for us.

The Varsity Inn OSU North was a clean and friendly place for my team over over 80 kids 12-18 to stay. I was initially concerned that every door faced the outside, but they did have a security guard that went around all night and it is located in a nice area. There was absolutely no problems with our stay, and we would come back certainly. Price was also great considering the number of rooms we had to pay for, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Also, restaurants were just steps from the hotel entrance.

Booked here for the price...and usually cheap means just 'adequate'. We were very happy with the place. It was VERY clean, the staff was very helpful and nice. The beds were SUPER comfortable. It was overall a very good experience. I'd def recommend this place and we will be going back soon.

This is our "go to" place to stay near the OSU campus - it is reasonably priced (around $60-70 with AAA discount) and very convenient to the campus. The rooms are adequate and many seem to have been recently refurbished. Some of the beds are more comfortable than others and I'm guessing those are in the refurbished rooms. The towels are very small and thin, but the front desk has provided extra towels for us when asked.

There are many fast-food (Burger King, Sonic) and sit-down restaurants (Bob Evans, Roosters, El Vaquero Mexican Restaurant) within walking distance. A 3-minute drive to the Schottenstein Ctr and 5-minute drive to the OSU campus. Easy access to 315. The location is very convenient.

Our youngest of 3 boys is now at Ohio State (all 3 boys have gone there!) so we stay here often. We've stayed at some of the more expensive hotels nearby (double the price) and while they are nicer, you can't beat Varsity Inn for the price. They also have a frequent visitor card (punched for each night you stay) that we have filled more than once. If you're looking for 5 star accommodations, look elsewhere - if you are budget-minded, then this is a great option!
