Nice hotel, very convenient, clean, renovated

4 out of 5
by from Westlake, OH
Posted Oct 3, 2016
Pros: Lobby area, public spaces, beds, convenient location
Cons: functioning key cards, more towels (if 4 guests are scheduled for a room - why only give them 3 towels?), load fresh (unexpired) soda into machines
Location: Very convenient to Ohio Univ. Athens, Court St, Ridges
Very convenient to OU. Lobby, rooms and public areas were very nice. Staff was friendly. Carpeting seemed fairly new. Seems to have been recently renovated. Room is very nice - decent size, beds are comfortable, nice tv. Bathroom was nice but small, and only had a shower stall - no tub. There were a few annoying things: 1) breakfast is not included (additional $10-13 per person for the buffet), 2) key cards were finicky (only one of our cards out of 3 actually worked), 3) not enough towels, and 4) all the soda in the vending machine was very old - expired weeks to months ago. I don't know who is in charge of loading their vending machines but why do they keep adding expired pop? Saving money or just careless?

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay, I do apologize that there were several parts of your stay that were not good. I will most definitely address why the soda in the vending machines has expired and will fix this problem right away. Additionally I apologize there were not enough towels in your room, please don't hesitate to call the front desk to request additional towels be brought to your room. We hope to have you stay with us again in the near future! Best, Trevor

Great hotel near OU campus

Pros: Everything was great, except for the breakfast. The food on the buffet looked good but it was all cold. Fresh made omelette was very good.
Cons: Keep the food on the buffet hot!
Very friendly staff, very nice, clean and spacious rooms. We were there for a college visit and it was perfect. Everything was great, except for the restaurant breakfast buffet. Definitely not worth the money. The resturaunt atmosphere was lovely but the food was not good. It was cold.
