Never again
Probably would not stay here again, I was scared to even sleep in the bed, thought I would find something in it I didn't want to find! The bathroom was in poor condition, the floors looked like they hadn't been cleaned. The shower head was coming out of the wall. It was too late for me to cancel otherwise I would have. The check in process was a headache. Waited for 20+ minutes at the drive thru check in window. Wasn't very impressed overall and I normally don't leave bad reviews but this was just too much for me.

Good price, but could be better service
I have stayed here before and will probably stay here again, given the cost. Our room wasn't serviced during our stay, so we had the same towels from the first day. It is in a good location, with easy driving access to both downtown and OSU. The room felt muggy the entire time we were there, even running the air conditioning didn't help. It was a bed, but for 125/night after tax, I would have liked to have seen more service in the room.

Mixed bag
Made reservation through Hotels.com, checked the day before to make sure everything ok, when we arrived they had the wrong day. They made it right, but it was frustrating. 1 room of two was missing a shower curtain, the other room had a door handle it took two of us to open. Breakfast was great, as was desk attendant.
