    Staff

    We had a smoking room and there were no ashtrays. The bathroom smelled very strongly of urine. Mirrors and tv badly smeared like they were cleaned with furniture polish instead of glass cleaner. Sorry, I am just a picky cleaner.

    Fabulous

    I liked the location. It was close to retail stores, restaurants, and other shopping. I also liked the free WiFi.

    The layout of the space was a bit inconvenient. I had to go outside to get to the lobby.

    For the price, and quality, the location to Ohio Stadium was excellent.

    Bathroom in the lobby was plugged up Saturday morning when we got there.

    The price, the front desk people, the privacy

    The bathroom light was about to fall off the ceiling, when we first came in the bathroom had scraps of paper on the floor and behind the night stand there was a shoelace

    Close to osu

    The a/c went off and on often and was very loud when it went through the cycles.

    Superb

    Well maintained pool, partly under roof. Comfortable bed. Courteous staff.

    Room was dark; needed more lighting. No breakfast option. Pool is seasonal, not good for non-summer travel.

    Superb

    I think I got my money's worth. I wanted to stay near osu. While it is easy to access the University on foot in good weather, one needs dependable transportation in winter. The motel is a little bit isolated. They offer free WiFi service, which is excellent, but I think they could also offer a continental breakfast and charge a little extra for the service. It's not so convenient to have to look for a place outside the motel for breakfast, especially when the weather is bad. Otherwise, my room was very comfortable and I enjoyed it.

    Try offering continental breakfast even if you should charge the guest a little more.

    The location was perfect. I was in town for my sons lacrosse tournament at osu. The stadium and fields where he was playing was a mile away....if that!!! There was a grocery store nearby...everything was really close. Will stay there again!

    I thought everything was very nice.

    Checking in was a nightmare. I had requested a ground level room because of knee surgery and was told there wasn't one and then they found a room that someone else had moved from and gave it to me. It was 85 degrees out and the air conditioner didn't work. When I called the front desk the man that answered was rude and acted like I couldn't figure out how to turn it on. When the maintenence man finally came he eventually had to remove the whole unit and replace it. He was very nice and appologized for the inconvience. Never an apology or acknowledgement from the desk.

    Very close to convocation hall where osu graduations take place. Bob Evans and Sonic restaurants nearby. Easy access to Rt 315.

    Not their fault but this location totally lacks pedestrian accommodations for safely walking anywhere. Bits of sidewalks to nowhere, no crosswalks, etc. It forces you into a car for your own safety. Very surprising for a college town.

    Good

    The room was freezing cold when I arrived then it got too hot. It was hard to regulate the temperature. The fitness room was also freezing cold and I turned on the heater but it just kept shutting off and I had to keep jumping off the treadmill. The reason I picked this hotel was because of the fitness center. I was very disappointed.

    Close to the Schottenstein Center where we attended a concert. The price was very reasonable.

    The rooms were clean and the workout room - although small - was well equipped. It was a reasonable walk to the Horseshoe as well as numerous eateries.
