“Not bad, no real problems”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Stayed here for one night while on a business trip to nearby Pataskala. I liked having the large, spacious suite, particularly for such an affordable price - less than the price that many places charge for a regular size room. I especially appreciated having a wall thermostat and quiet central heating, rather than a loud wall mounted unit (that just blows the heat up into the curtains) like most hotel rooms have. The suite was clean, and everything worked sufficiently, but some of the furniture was looking pretty "tired" (although the bed was fine). In addition to some newer furniture, the place could definitely use some additional lighting. Even with every light in the suite turned on, it's still pretty dark, especially in the front room. Even the hotel lobby seemed dark and poorly lit. Also, I have to wonder, what's with the VCR in the suite? Who in 2013 still watches VHS tapes? And even if you were so inclined, where would you even get one? No one rents VHS tapes anymore, and stores haven't sold VHS movies in years.

There is an almost unlimited amount of stores and restaurants in the area, but the hotel itself is tucked back in a secluded spot. You do get a quiet and spacious suite here, for a very affordable price, so I would have no problems staying here again on future trips to the area. Addressing the minor issues mentioned above would take this hotel from average to great. I.e., replacing the tired furniture, installing better lighting in the suites, and replacing the old tube tv's with modern, flat-panel televisions...and yes, losing the VCR's in favor of BD (or at least DVD) players. I'm sure that would result in a rate increase, but as long as it wasn't too drastic, it would be a worthwhile endeavor.

Thank you for your comments about your recent stay at our hotel. I always appreciate hearing how we do, whether it is good or leaves us some room for improvement. If we don’t know what is wrong, we can’t make it any better.
I do see you did find our furniture little tired and TV sets old. We do have New flat Panels on our list and will be installed very soon and and the VCR's have been removed from all the rooms.

Hospitably,

Mike Motiwala
General Manager

I always stay at this hotel when visiting with my family in Columbus Ohio. The rooms are nice and roomy and the hot breakfast allows for me and my family to have a hot meal every morning. I will reserve my room at this hotel whenever I come to Columbus or travel elsewhere!

I like the spacious suite, the separate living area with extra is definately a plus. The kitchenette is ok, microwave and mini fridge was good to have. The pool was heated another plus which gave the kids some swim time. The hottub doesn't function though. The breakfast was ok, the breakfast area is small, so you kind of have to time your breakfast right.

We stayed 1 night at this hotel. It is nicely located far away from the interstate. The breakfast was super...nice hot foods, freshly prepared. The pool was very nice. We had a large room (suite) with full kitchen facilities (we didn't need to use them). I really appreciated not having a wall/floor mounted heater/AC unit. We didn't have to listen to it kick on and off all night. We had a room facing the small lake out back..nice and private. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. Price was very affordable.

Room Tip: Request room facing lake (pond) out back.

We had a week-long project nearby and REALLY enjoyed the extra long kitchenette countertop. It's not quite a cooking kitchenette, but made a BIG difference in our comfort.

A separate living are with a nice-sized desk on the other side of the kitchen gave the two of us each an area to watch separate TV channels, as there was a 2nd TV in the bedroom.

We would DEFINITELY return to this Best Western even tho it was a little difficult to find at first. It's around the cul-de-sac and behind a Greek restaurant that is now for sale.

Once we found it, we were able to accomplish alot of the errands we needed to take care of north and south at the same exit.

Room Tip: Our 3rd floor room was easy to get to and quiet. There are rooms on the back side but they are proba...
