Poor 2.0
So dirty.
This is my third time staying here for a Buckeyes game. This place is getting worse every time. The hotel room was absolutely disgusting. Black mould in the bathrooms. Missing assist bar in the bath tub. So much hair and dirt on the floor and the room reeked like cigarette smoke despite being a non smoking room. It looks like there was blood on the walls and the ceiling fire suppression. At least I didn’t find bed begs which I felt obligated to look for. Guess u get what you pay for and sometimes there’s no choice but to stay here. But the Varsity INN is in desperate need of a deep cleaning and update... very disappointed. Do not bring kids here.

The hotel is the best price for the area on game day weekend if you are looking for a place to hang your hat without all the fluff. The hotel has been renovated over the past several years and deserves a second look if you have not stayed in a while.

The blankets had multiple stains. The floors didn’t seem to be vacuumed. In a decent area.
