Newly remodeled, all modern amenities. We had a very comfortable stay at a very affordable price. The breakfast far exceeded our expectations and the kitchen staff was very welcoming and helpful. We had a great overall experience! Thank you so much!

It was a nice change compared to a hotel that we stayed in the previous week. We paid roughly the same price for a room in another state, but the accommodations were much nicer at the Hampton Inn in Columbus, Ohio. It made our visit that much more relaxing! Thanks for having such a clean hotel!
