Fabulous 8.8 From 229 reviews

Fair 4.0
I did not enjoy my stay at all. The room that I received when I got to the hotel smelled like mildew and the floor was soaking wet. I was given another room which the keys didn’t work for, I had to go to customer service too many times. I am not happy at all and will not visit again.

Great customer service. Room was nice. Bed was comfortable. Air conditioner kept the room comfortable, but was loud.

Learn how to behave in public
First room was not hotels fault it was the fault of "family" who spent their time screaming at the children, running from room to room slamming doors, knocking on our door because they couldn't remember their room number. The desk clerk moved us. Unfortunately the room we were moved to had the noisiest AC I have ever heard. When we checked out no one asked us how our stay was.
Ladonna, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
Average stay
The room smelled when we got in but was clean. No ventilation in the bathroom. Breakfast not included in the price of the room but terrible.

Exceptional 10.0
Very clean, nice place, recommended
All employees had masks on upon arrival. Check in was probably fastest I've ever experienced. Room was super clean. This property was a good pick for a stop over near Columbus during COVID. This place is surrounded by shopping and eateries. Everything closed on a Wednesday by 9-10pm though (Because if COVID?) so if you need a late night meal or cocktail it’s slim pickins. Room service took last call at 1030pm.
