Close to hosp.

Posted Dec 12, 2017
Was disappointed because I had requested a first floor room due to difficulty walking and felt the request was blown off. However, it is an average hotel, close to downtown hosp. especially OSU.

Pros: It was modestly priced, located in a nice shopping neighborhood, and very comfortable.
I was visiting a family member receiving treatment at James Cancer Center. The affordable cost of this hotel made my trip possible. I was pleased with the entire experience -- easy online reservation, efficient and warm receptionist, comfortable and appealing room. I will definitely stay there again.

We stayed here to go to game at Mapfre Stadium - it was only 5km away through a nicer part of town than some other (cheaper) options. Also close to Ohio State. Has a Tim Hortons, Wendys, and Bob Evans restaurant right next door.

Walking distance to OSU Stadium

Posted Nov 20, 2017
We stayed for the OSU football game. It’s a mile walk but would have been nice if they provided shuttle service. The beds were nice. The bathroom needs updating but overall ok.
