Staff was great. Price was right. Close to a good mall and not far from downtown Columbus. Hot tub jets didn't work properly...well, ONE did. The rest had no pressure. Key access to the door nearest our room didn't work so we had to go through lobby every time.

We were driving 9 hours from central Illinois to Northeast Ohio with a 20 month old for vacation. Needless to say, we did not do the drive in a straight shot.

Our son plays travel baseball and hockey so we are on the road a lot. We are choice rewards members and stay at comfort inn whenever possible.

Rooms, halls, everything was very clean...a big plus. Beds were very comfortable and hotel and surrounding area was quiet.

Not convenient when checking in late and tired. 2) the refrigerator in the...
