Great location. I loved the continuous supply of coffee with real creamer at the office. Shampoo was provided, but missing conditioner and lotion.

Pros: Clean room.
Cons: Staffing, area cleanliness.
Location: Located near a good bar / restaurant district (High Street)
Room was clean and nice. There was a crack pipe in the grass outside our room. Area was not bad though, directly beside busy streets. Front desk attendant was rude. Room was okay for value.

Good value for the price

Location: There's an Applebees next to the motel. You're only 5 minutes from THE OSU.
It's a Red Roof so the rooms are pretty small compared to other hotels. The rooms have been upgraded to a more contemporary feel including flat screen TV. If you want to watch TV you have to do it from the bed. There's no chair other than the one for the mini-desk. Office staff were polite and friendly and the place was clean. So no complaints but I wouldn't stay here for longer than a couple of nights only because the rooms are small.

Close to the venue I was going to

Pros: see above?
Cons: When they remodeled last year they installed raised sinks. It's a little awkward but not a big issue. Never seen that before. Adults tall. Kids short.
Location: Again..see above !!!
Not a bad place. Clean. Guy at the front desk was nice. Heater didn't warm the room up quite enough but I really was only there to sleep and I was fine covered. Overall it's ok. I've been there before and I'd go again. Only $66 thru Travelocity that night..booked the same day. Can't beat that. And plenty of food options nearby. 15 minute walk to the Schott. Didn't have to deal with traffic. Well lit and seems safe around there.

Functional hotel. Nothing special.

"Upgrade" consists of a microwave, fridge and iron.

Ok place to stay.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no breakfast
Room was ok other than the dresser missing a drawer. The hotel was quiet and the front desk staff very pleasant.
