The staff is the only reason I didn’t leave a seething review. They were polite & gave good recommendations. The hotel itself was not at all worth the price. Restaurant within was closed, flat pillows, very noisy, either dripping or fire hose water pressure, either freezing or super hot. Keurig didn’t even make hot coffee. Would not stay here again.

It was an old building. It needs renovating. The heater was very loud every time it clicked on. It kept waking us up. Also the sheets had a stain. When we asked the staff to change the sheets they said they didn’t have anyone available.

In our case, we had an early appointment downtown Columbus and we could walk to it the next morning.

The Check out was paid with cash, but I could not get a receipt for the cash payment. They told me I had to go back to Travelocity to get a receipt. My stay was thru Travelocity with terms "Stay then Pay" was on Travelocity contract. Travelocity sent me an email stating "The reservation was pay later and the amount was collected by the Hotel directly. We highly suggest for me to contact hotel at 614221-3281 to request an itemized receipt. The hotel confirmation number is 49877169." All I want is a receipt showing I paid cash ($561.24) and not charge my credit card I had on file with the hotel when I made the reservation. Thank You Ethel M Bronston , 937-322-4844, 1220 Bellefair Ave, Springfield, OH 45506
