This is a resonably priced and conveniently located property for visitors to the Ohio State University. It is a quiet locality and the rooms are clean & very comfortable.Wifi is available. No breakfast, but all meals could be had in any of the many good restaurants in the shopping mall just across the road. Specially recommend the very reasonably priced...

Thanks for a very quiet stay in a clean room! The check-in staff were pleasant and quickly processed our request for a room. The location is near major high ways and while could be potentially noisy, it certainly was not. Thank you again for a quiet, restful stay in a clean room.

My only complaint with the property would be a result of the outside noise. The rooms have been completely redone and are clean. Gone are the carpets and...

This is an ok place that we picked for it's closeness to the University. It is easy to find and was right off the highway. The room was updated and had a flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge. It appeared clean but it did have a smell, kind of musty. The best part of the room were the beds. They...

Check in was easy and the front desk worker was pleasant. The rooms are easily accessed by either stairs or an elevator. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. They offer WI-fi and it actually worked, unlike many other hotels we have stayed at recently. This is not a luxury hotel, but for the price it covers everything...
