      The bathroom, the toilet had streak lines

      Quickness in registering and checking out. Breakfast was included with good selection and the girl looking after us was very helpful and courteous.

    • Older travelers

      The motel was clean and our room was spacious without frills. The continental breakfast was good. The convenience to the Expo Center (one exit away) was the best! We would definitely stay there again.

      No "wake-up call" when requested both mornings. The television reception wasn't clear.

      very comfortable and clean loved that you didn't change the sheets every day....

      Crack staff--many always smiling and eager to help..(just one front desk guy not cut out of the same mold). Gave a great recommendation about a local pizza place. Maid Service invisible but super efficient. On the days when the car show was not in town breakfast was well stocked and fresh comfortable and took good care of us

      Neighborhood was seedy....albeit well located in proximity to everything on our agenda. I wouldn't want to walk the streets at night. Felt kind of "concrete jungle". When the car show came to town (which was great actually) kitchen staff was way over burdened to handle breakfast and couldn't keep up with the rush.

    • Group of friends

      The hotel did not offer pay-per-view/or movie channel. The bathroom was in huge need of some fix-up...toilet didn't flush properly, tile was chipped and broken...

      Location was great as I was visiting with my son who is attending Ohio State. Able to leave my car there while being with him.

    • Group of friends

      It was very relaxing with real good breakfast. Very quiet and calm. Very convient location right off the interstate.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      They were closest to the venue, so the location was great. We had stayed there previously, so we knew that in advance. The staff was super friendly and supportive while the elevator was being repaired. Our room was tops in all respects: clean, well-equipped, comfortable beds, coffee, etc. The breakfast was hot and very good. We plan to stay there again in the future.
