Needs updated and fixed
The hotel needs some major updating and fixing. The room we stayed in had cracked tile floor near the bathroom. The tub/shower needs fixed. The bar to hang washcloth on in tub was broken and no longer there. Just two holes where it used to be. Little chunks of either drywall or plaster was falling into tub so when showering you are stepping on it. The silver piece where the water turns on is loose and coming off the wall. There needs to be either bigger trashcans or more than one small one available. We called and asked for either a new remote or batteries for it as tv wouldnt come on by remote. We received neither. The toilet was slow to flush and eventually stopped up. We called and We was told we had to come to lobby to get the only one and that we would have to return to lobby upon check out. Very unsanitary in my opinion. Just overall unpleased with this visit. We have many more visits to Columbus coming up but will find other accommodations and will not be returning to this hotel

Reading previous reviews before I booked, my only concern was having hot water. Fear not-the water was HOT! The hotel was clean, comfy, and the front desk person was friendly & efficient. As for location, it was perfect! 5 minutes to my chosen restaurant and 5 minutes to the Schottenstein Center. I would highly recommend this hotel for those on a budget.
