Great experience
I enjoyed the quietness, the cleanliness and the lovely staff. I would be more than happy to stay here again in the near future. Parking was close and very easy to come and go. Room was very well appointed. The reception staff super friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi worked seamlessly, the gym and pool very good. The restaurant menu was okay. room service available until 12 if required. Again Parking was a breeze. No hesitation in recommending this hotel for overnight or longer stays

Nice hotel but food was gross
Service was great and the staff was friendly. Room clean, bed was comfortable, water in shower was hot and had pressure The hotel is within walking distance to the Ohio Stadium or any OSU activities, multiple food places & Riverside Hospital. If you didn't want to walk, bus 1 stops right in front. Now for the food, which is our worst issue. There i s a restaurant attached to the hotel for convenience which is a plus, but the food isn't worth the money we paid. Due to being super hungry after the OSU game and the restaurant being open till midnight we thought We scored. The food was very bland, no taste, menu was limited due to it being on game days. As my husband who eats almost everything, forced the moda burger down his throat said our chickens wouldn't even eat this stuff. We should have just ordered pizza like we talked about. But guess that was a hard lesson learned. They also have free breakfast, so we thought we would give it a shot. Scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage linksand was apart of the menua. Again sounded and looked good, right. Eggs were runny, no taste and I'm a plain Jane, bacon was all stuck together and didnt taste like bacon and the sausage was freezer burnt. In my opinion the food needs to be relooked at or just hit Dennys across the street. I'm sure there food with be better.
