Very Good

Though it's decor is right out of 1985, the bedding, tv and furniture are much newer and very functional. The hallways will scare you--but things improve a bit upon getting into your room.
Pros: Inexpensive, clean, reasonably quiet on a Thurs. to Fri morning. Staff was helpful and vigilant to potential issues--in a good way! Pool and fitness facility was extremely clean and useful with good hours.
Cons: Dated decor in halls did give reason for pause but overall experience was good.

Fantastic value!
Pros: For the price, it was fantastic! I have stayed at much, much worse for way more money! Only thing that was bad was one of the doors to get inside had a broken door handle that did not work with the key card. Not a big deal at the end of the day! Next time I have to stay over in Columbus it will definitely be here!
Cons: Broken entry door.

Good Value
Pros: Really good location. Very close to major highways. There's a pizza hut next door if you want something else other than Thai food within walking distance. We traveled with our two kids and some friends who brought their two kids, and it was a very safe, kid friendly environment.
Cons: The indoor pool, hot tub, and fitness center is a sports club connected to the hotel. There are people there training in the pool who have priority of what part of the pool they are taking. Hot tub was closed for repairs. Outdoor pool was closed for renovations. I figured since I've seen comments since late May about the pool being closed, it would be open by mid July. Nope, it wasn't. For the money we spent, it was still a good value.
