Positive Reviews

Staff is helpful

The staff here goes out of their way to be helpful and knowledgeable to guests. They greet each guest with a friendly and warm welcome and keep that attitude for the entire stay. The check-in process is simple and quick. The staff is also very accommodating with special requests and has helpful tips for the area restaurants and attractions.

A quick drive

The hotel is centrally located and it is just a quick drive or cab ride to many restaurants and local attractions. It is also a quick drive to the stadium for Ohio State games. The quick access to downtown is great for those wanting to explore.

You'll have a nice stay

The rooms are modernized, clean, and comfortable. You'll also get a lot of freebies with your stay, such as free WiFi, free breakfast, and free parking.

Negative Reviews

It's not a good area of town

This is not a great neighborhood location and guests will not want to walk and explore the area. There are no scenic views and you'll be surrounded by commercial businesses, like auto repair shops and pawn stores. The security at the hotel includes locked doors and bars on the windows.

Not ideal for business

This hotel is not a great choice for business travelers. All rooms do not have dedicated work areas, the lighting is dim, and there are not many plugs for all the modern devices. Plus, you'll have to drive a fair distance for any food choices and there are no shops nearby.

Could do with an upgrading

The entire hotel could do with a more modern updating. The common areas look a bit older and many features are dated. The breakfast bar would also do with an overhaul as the presentation and taste is less than stellar.
