First time & last time!

Posted May 16, 2015
Pros: Convenient shopping.
Cons: Cleanliness and courtesy.
Location: Shopping. Restaurants.
So, when I initially checked in, I was given a room located on the far end of the grounds; ok. Once finally got to my room, all I wanted to do was take a shower... but to my surprise there was 1 towel that may have been clean. Two smaller towels lay on the bathroom counter, clearly used! And I then looking around. I noticed brown spots splattered all over the sink, red chunks of something in the tub, and the trash was full; and does anyone know how to use a vacuum? So I immediately requested a new room! This time I received the 'accessible' room near the main office. I was satisfied and the 1st night, not bad. Although, my 2nd night there, I had noticed several big vehicles cruising by and parking a few spots down. When I was getting into bed, after 1 a.m., there were a lot of footsteps above me (a lot). Then, it got really loud. It sounded as if they were doing heavy construction/remodeling on the second floor. This continued until a little 5am. It was then at this time I was finally able to get any sleep, to the sound and rocking of washers and dryers.

Location: I think that the price for this hotel is driven by it's location to the Ohio State Campus.
Suggest updating the hotel. I think that the price of the hotel is slightly overpriced when considering it's decor and lack of amenities. Staff friendly.

Decent hotel for the price, very close to campus

The hotel has s great location. Staff was very friendly and took care of us. The televisions were extremely outdated and in poor condition. Room was clean and easy to access.

Pros: The cost was low compared to other hotels in the area but I would definitely spend a little extra the next time.
Cons: Noise reduction. Beds were squeaky--probably need new box springs.
Location: Columbus, Ohio is a wonderful place with a lot of activities and good places to eat.
The hotel was not busy but we were between 2 rooms in which the people made noise late into the night. Walls were paper thin. There was not much available for breakfast.

Varsity Inn North, Olentangy River Rd Columbus Ohi

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: Same as above: good bed, refrig/microwave; close to our main venue, close to restaurants & shopping
Cons: Most definitely the TV! Our room had the big old TV & 1/2 channels were fuzzy!
Location: Walk to Bob Evans/Burger King to Kohls Close to OSU campus; COSI; Schottenstein Center, OSU baseball/softball complex; Jack Nichalaus museum
Close to the Schottenstein Arena/ Ohio State which what we wanted. Able to walk to Bob Evans & Burger King; also could walk to Kohls to shop. Other restaurants/shopping on same road. Slept good-beds were nice. Had a refrig & microwave, hairdryer, ditigal clock radio For the money it was ok. Only stayed 2 nights & was only in room to sleep. Negative---old big tv & 1/2 channels were fuzzy. Need to put in new tvs; toilet seat was loose. For us..it worked.
