Positive Reviews

The Staff is Nice

Guests generally found the hotel's employees to be responsive and courteous, even when dealing with mishaps. Many guests felt the service they received was one of the best things about the experience of staying here.

Conveniently Located

This hotel is close to the campus of Ohio State University, and within walking distance from the fairgrounds. As a result, many guests stay here while enjoying the state fair, or because they are attending college events. Furthermore, there is a chain restaurant next door, which makes it easy to get meals.

The Rates Are Reasonable

Guests frequently had the opinion that this was a good place to stay when the priority was to save money. The facilities are far from fancy, but they will suffice if you just need a place to rest and relax while in the area.

Negative Reviews

The Rooms Have Bad Smells

There was frequent feedback that the accommodations are characterized by strong and unpleasant smells. Usually, guests said the odors smelled musty or smoky. Furthermore, guests reported that the smoky smell even was present in rooms where cigarette smoking was not supposed to be permitted.

A Lack of Attention to Maintenance

The rooms here have not been well kept up, and guests were often under the impression that the hotel's management did not seem willing to make a commitment about improving things. For example, guests found issues like burned out light bulbs or broken things in their rooms, and these issues were common.

Rooms Are Frequently Unclean

Guests discussed numerous problems with cleanliness. Some found smoked cigarettes in their rooms, stray hairs in the bathrooms, trash remaining in the accommodations, and similar shortcomings. Unfortunately, reviews suggest it's more common to check into a dirty room than a clean one.
