Hello Brenda, I am really sorry to hear about your issues with your stay. Being located in the middle of Ohio State's campus is wonderful but the drawback is that the only non staff or student parking is with our valet service or in the public garage next door. I apologize this was not more prominent in your Expedia confirmation and will work with them to make it more clear. Our bathrooms do not have fans, but instead rely on our constant current HVAC system and I have spoken with our Housekeeping Room Inspectors to emphasize triple checking that our in-room Keurigs are completely reset. I hope you give us another chance if you make it to OSU again and had a safe journey home.

Debra, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were upset regarding the communication of certain details surrounding your stay. To my knowledge, we did not have any Covid positive guests staying at our hotel while you were here. Despite what you may have heard, we are not housing any students. I apologize for any miscommunication that detracted from the Blackwell experience we strive to present each guest with!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations during your stay. When booking directly with the hotel we are able to communicate all of our amenities and services that are being offered during your stay. Often, when booking through a third-party, amended services are not always communicated. We are currently offering a self-parking option in the parking garage as our valet services are not returning until August 1st. On all of our pre-arrival email letters as well as our confirmation letters we have been letting our guests know about parking, food and beverage options and what services our guest's are able to enjoy during their stays. Thank you-
