This hotel reminded me of the film "Sunset Boulevard", with the aging star, glamorous at the peak of here career, trying to maintain some elegance and attractive appearance as age takes its toll. A friend in Columbus advised me that the locale of this hotel is increasingly questionable safety, and the metal reinforcements around the room doors supported this perception. It also struck me as odd how many people seemed to be loitering in the hallways (encountering at least 2-3 every time I left or returned to my room), standing or lying on the floor, talking or texting on their phones. (Am I naive?)
I was also hit up by an apparently-homeless person in the lobby. (I had some sympathy, as this was one of our recent sub-zero weekends. But, still, ....)
It's attached to a health club, to which they sell separate memberships but allow hotel guests to utilize.

If you are accustomed to a nice Best Western, I suggest that you stay at one of the other Best Westerns in the Columbus area. You will be disappointed with this one. I have stayed at the one by the Airport, is was very nice. This one was located where I needed to be so I chose it. Never again will I use this one. I rated everything average, however, if I want average I'll go to Motel 6.

Lots of room traffic (Prostitution) the hallways had the strong smell of dope in the hallways, all the sidewalks have been covered in several snow falls new and old Unsafe, access to doorways covered in ice new and old Unsafe This motel is not worthy of the BestWestern Logo.

Im not really sure what people expect when choosing a hotel, especially one in this class. I have stayed at this Best Western more times than i can count since the early 90's. I prefer to stay downtown at more upscale hotels, however, when 1 is not available, this is the 1st choice I make. It is an older hotel, it is a lil bit out of town, BUT I have never felt scared to stay here, I have never been treated poorly, and I have never booked a price line/hotels.com reservation that was canceled when i arrived. The pool and fitness facility is quite nice, the last time i was in, i could tell that the room had been "refreshed and updated". Considering that Motel 6's and hotels of that class are about $50/night these days, $75 for this hotel really is a steal.

The Staff are awesome, the room was clean and the décor was pleasant. The room was large this is a plus. the local restaurants were not too far away, It's winter of course and the Hotel sidewalks and parking lot are covered in ice so be careful or you will land on your Bum.

Above average to good. Stayed one night with my son and we had a blast at the pool and the area. Although the hotel seemed a bit dated, it was comfortable and clean. The room was nice and large with a separate living room. Would definitly stay at the property again if in the area.

Room Tip: Just in need of an update, but clean and very good for the price paid.
