We stayed here for the reasonable prices and weren't expecting much. We were surprised how nice the rooms were. The location was good as well near restaurants and Ohio state. Would recommend this place it seams like it was recently renovated and our stay was quite nice.

I've stayed a few times before the management has taken over (with great dissatisfaction). But Barbara at the front desk is so friendly and caring I only stay at this location when traveling. The new renovation rooms are beautiful. It's well worth the price now. And once again thanks Barbara. See you guys next month.

We had asked for a non-smoking room and even though the room was marked non-smoking on the door it had a very strong odor of cigarette smoke, there were burn marks on the table, desk, bedspread and rug. The bathroom sink faucet leaked. The A/C did not work properly. From the outside the hotel looks very nice, but the inside...

Good location close to the fairgrounds. Easy access from I 71. Property looks ok from outside. This hotel was probably nice years ago but lack of up keep is evident. The carpet inside our room had patches replaced. Carpet was worn and frayed. The room was clean but the sink in the bathroom had many stains making it appear dirty....

This hotel is under renovation. It is pet-friendly; I hope they keep it that way when they're done. We were placed in a pre-renovation room. We asked the front desk people for a recommendation for dinner, and were guided to Cumin, an Indian restaurant that turned out to be one of our all-time favorites. I think Mr. Patel thought at...

Booked this hotel on line as a cheap and late quick stop but it is not a pleasant place to stay or linger.
