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.
