"Was sufficient for what we needed."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Front desk personel were very curtious and helpful. Rooms were a bit smaller than I expected but the room was clean. Was a pretty quiet visit not alot of foot traffic outside the room yet our visit was in the middle of the week. I have definitely considered staying again and spending this visit for leasure to attend the Ohio State Fair.

"Strong, hot shower, clean bed, free breakfast."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I expected worse based on reviews online, but it was in a good location for what we were in town for, so I took a chance. The bed was clean, the shower was strong and hot, there was a continental breakfast that was as good as any I've seen. I couldn't find any reason to complain. There was a lot going on in the parking lot at night, but nothing that kept us from sleeping. I would stay here again.

"This was the worst hotel I ever stayed in."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This hotel was awful. It smelled horrible, the lock didn't work properly, the phone was nonfunctional, the TV was old and outdated, there was a hole in the floor carpet, the bathroom floor was dirty, there were holes in my sheets, the pillows were small, and the water flooded through the ceiling. Need I say more?
