Great but need new towels
The staff, rooms, room service was all very good. My one complaint is about the towels. They are old and rough and need replacement. Hopefully the hotel is planning to renew them soon.

Freezing cold or boiling hot room!
The room was freezing and the heat would not work unless it was turned up to 85 degrees. I got very sick after leaving the hotel because I could not find a comfortable temperature. It'd either be freezing cold or steaming hot. For a hotel of this stature, I'd expect more.

Good Location, Clean, No Breakfast Included
Overall a wonderful hotel for the price and location. In the heart of Columbus with many restaurants, bars, and shops to walk to. My only two issues is that no complimentary breakfast was available and some confusion at check in occurred. The available breakfast started at $18 and was served in the restaurant in the hotel. Me and my husband braved the snow and ended up walking to a Starbucks down the street for a quick breakfast. For the price, an available breakfast should be present as most Motel 8's have something for guests to grab as they're leaving. The issue at checkout was that I'm not yet 21, I'm 20, and the service worker at the desk denied me my room for which I already paid for, and as the policy said online 18+ is the age limit. Manager was great and fixed the problem but the employees should be made aware of their policies.

Every single staff member was polite and friendly. Everyone said hello and offered help wherever we were. Super nice super great place to stay.
