Not a great choice for tourists or solo travelers
Posted Jan 2, 2017
I was a solo international former OSU grad visiting Columbus for friends' graduation, inexperienced with the 'bad' areas of the U.S. - this was my worst hotel experience ever.
Reached location at 2am and found hookers and junkies both inside and outside. The desk clerk was accompanied by a fully armed cop. My Expedia reservation seemed not to show up on his computer but still he got me a room. The key card machine malfunctioned and I had to wait by the cop for half an hour until the machine worked by trial and error. The entire property reeked of unfamiliar smells, probably hard drugs. Walkways were dirty, so was the room. The sink and the bathtub were dirty and water started to stagnate. I sat on the chair until the next morning and checked out cancelling my two day reservation. The property and surroundings looked decent in daylight though. I highly recommend other chains even if a bit more expensive.
