  • Group of friends

    Beautiful, comfortable place to stay

    A shuttle to the football game should be offered. Also, about everywhere we stay offers a continental breakfast and for the price of the room, should be included.

  • 7.0

    The staff was very friendly. The lobby was beautiful.

    For the price, the furniture in the rooms were outdated and the carpet needed to be cleaned or replaced.

  • 6.6

    Close to where we needed to be and the breakfast was good.

    Staff is inconsistent with how they treat guests. Some rude and some great.

  • 8.8

    Clean friendly

  • 8.8

    Very nice updated hotel. Rooms are a decent size. Beds are comfortable. Pool and hot tub are on the smaller size. Would definitely stay there again.

  • 8.2

    Comfort of the room was quite delightful.

    Unlinked the breakfast set up but the food was good.

  • 10.0

    The people were personal and cheerful.

  • 10.0

    Loved the bedding and pillows, so comfortable. So clean and well appointed. Great price and location.

  • 10.0

    We visited Columbus to see a concert. The shuttle was very helpful and when my daughter missed the first shuttle, the driver was kind enough to go back to get her and her friends!

  • 9.2

    Friendly staff, quick check in, nice, large rooms, adjustable firmness on beds. ( once you locate the dials!)

    No free breakfast, most hotels in the area offer that. No snack vending machines ( only soda), so you have to purchase at their "pantry" by the front desk. Also, nothing in room to let you know you can adjust firmness on beds. One side of my King was rock hard. Thankfully I noticed the one little sign they had about it on the front desk. You have to look to find the dial to adjust on the mattress. ( on the side of the mattress near the head of bed. It's hidden by a Velcro piece of mattress material)

  • 9.2

    The workers are so helpful and I appreciated the free shuttle very much!

  • 6.6

    Great design and appeal!

    Price of breakfast and staff personalities.

  • 5.0

    Location

    Staff was grumpy. Bed mattress old and lumpy.

  • 6.6

    Good location and nice staff

    Some furniture was broken (drawer will not close). stains in the furniture

  • 9.6

    Loved the shuttle service to dinner. As we had been driving all day and were happy not to have to drive to dinner.
