“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

When we arrived, the elevator was broken, but the front desk person was so nice; he helped haul all of our luggage up. The breakfast was beyond adequate - hot sausages and eggs, yogurt, fruit, juices, cereals, coffee, toast, bagels. The room was spacious. Amenities provided were excellent - the pool, cable, free wifi.

Last year I took my daughter on a 5 day road trip to look at colleges. OSU being one of them. This hotel is a tiny bit out of the way from the University and a little confusing the first time to find, having to go through airport roads BUT - well worth the drive!! What a relief!
So clean, so clean. Everything is just beautiful. The front desk staff was very engaging. The room was large and the beds are comfortable. The dining area is spacious and well attended with a nice assortment of food. Scrambled eggs and sausage too! I noticed a lot of business travelers and flight attendants. Understandable with the airport being so close. We stayed for 2 nights and I never heard a plane!
The only thing I didn't like is the pool has windows along the wall that face the hallway that guests frequent coming and going from the rooms. I would have used the pool if it were more private. Other than that....I highly recommend.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Usually ones located near airports are so busy and in demand that the upkeep is less than good; but this one was fine.

I slept in both the King bed and the Queen/Double? as I was staying for a family gathering, and had to switch rooms after one night. The King was amazingly comfortable, and I really loved the pillows. The Queen/Double (can't remember which it was), was a bit harder and the pillows were small and lumpy. Bathroom is TINY!

Swimming pool was freezing cold since they run the AC in there 24/7 it seems, but otherwise enjoyable. Breakfast was sub-par: weak coffee, cold cereal, toast, the usual.

I would probably stay here again because it was clean, very conveniently located, and reasonably priced through Hotwire.

We stayed with a small group (4 rooms), and booked this hotel specificially because of QQ beds available. When we arrived, we were told there was an 'overbooking' and only K beds remained. Even though our reservation was guaranteed with a credit card (so if we don't show, we get charged), our rooms were given to someone else.

Be careful with this place...

I found this hotel to be ideally situated. It is five minutes from the airport, less than 15 minutes from downtown Columbus and just 10 minutes from the best shopping mall I've ever seen (Easton Shopping Mall and Center). Upon check-in I was informed that in addition to the complimentary breakfast, they had a complimentary dinner! This is offered every Monday through Wednesday. My room was clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities. I would definitely stay here again.

We chose this hotel because of its closeness to the Columbus airport. We booked well in advance and prepaid. We do not have disabilities, however, were given a small room that had been adapted for people with disabilities. It was located right next to an exterior door and across the hall from the staff storeroom. We heard constant banging and loud talking much of the night, much of which could be attributed to staff. We checked out early in the morning to catch a 6 A.M. flight and found the desk clerk to be indifferent and not at all concerned about our experience. This hotel seems to be under poor management. When we called a day early to reconfirm, the clerk was busy joking with a co-worker and handled the call very unprofessionally. We should have taken that as a warning, however, we had pre-paid so could not have booked elsewhere if we had wanted.
