This was our first time staying at The Blackwell and it will not be our last! Our entire stay was impeccable from the customer service, to the cleanliness of our room. The staff helped us out on many occasions during our short stay and made us feel welcome. The hotel is close to the airport and is located a VERY... More

The Blackwell is one of the best hotels in which I have stayed. The rooms and all staff are exceptional and the location on the OSU campus is great, especially for its convenience to restaurants and shopping.

Stayed here for 5 nights over a football weekend and into week. Staff are beyond friendly, hotel is clean and professional. Used mezzanine level to do work for 3 days, had tables, chairs, business center and strong WiFi. Restaurant is solid too, not a huge menu but very, very good. 2 minute walk into Ohio Stadium and 10 minute walk... More

We made the 9 hour drive to OSU to check out some grad programs with one of the kids, and figured we'd find someplace to stay once we got there. After finding the building we needed to visit the next morning, we saw the Blackwell across the street and quickly went on Trip Advisor to make a rezzie. The room... More

I stayed at Blackwell for two nights in October 2016, for business. It's a good hotel, and I have nothing to complain about, but there is no character, or wow factor, which probably is not necessary for a hotel mostly for people who have business on OSU campus (like myself). I am happy with the hotel. Pros: (1) Clean, spacious,... More

The Blackwell is situated in the middle of Ohio State's campus. It is convenient to all sporting venues and almost anything else going on at OSU. The rooms are large and well appointed. The Staff, largely made up of students, is attentive friendly and competent. It is a little over priced and parking is expensive but it is a fine... More

Of all the hotels I've stayed (quite a few), this is most likely the best! Because it's the only hotel on the OSU campus though (as far as I know), it's just a tad overpriced because of it's location, but worth staying if doing business or pleasure at the OSU campus though. Rooms are large, hospitality is great, and love... More

This was my first visit to Blackwell on the OSU campus (I was there for a business conference), and my experience was nothing short of delightful. The room was extremely clean and housekeeping paid attention to the smallest details. For instance, housekeeping left me some make-up removal pads when they noticed I was using handtowels to take off my make-up!... More

Being the only hotel on the OSU campus, I was anticipating a nice, but possibly only "good" experience. I was happily mistaken. Service at the front desk was friendly and efficient, but the room is where things really shined. I had a king bed and not one but two work desks in a room that was large and well furnished....

Stayed there with my son for college visit. Very clean, comfortable, spacious and convenient for our purpose. No funny smell (usually with the cleaning products) anywhere. Staff were very nice and friendly - younger side, some told us that they were OSU students doing Internship. Airport shuttle services and town cars were very helpful for first-time visitor. I like it... More
