We wouldn’t rate it more than 35 It was okay

On the good side: it was clean and had soaps; bar was opened until midnight and cocktails were good On the bad side: no food or snacks in the hotel at all No breakfast or coffee We were told their kitchen was not opened Sunday/Monday Do they really need their kitchen to stock up shelves with some snacks and make a coffee? They list breakfast on their website and we were charged full price My husband asked if we were going to have some discount since we didn’t have breakfast, he was told no The room was reserved for two, we had only one k cup in the room Although, they did give him a couple more when he went to the lobby to ask for it We will not stay there again This hotel stay is worth $89, not $119 that we were charged But we know it is not typical of Cambria We stayed at another Cambria in Greenville SC and it was much much better Cambria in Columbus OH is the one we didn’t like

Robert Ketler

I am completely floored at the poor condition of the hotel we’re staying in Cambria Hotel in Columbus/Polaris is a joke We are paying almost $350 for 1 night

I would expect near perfection for that priceWebsite claims to have a restaurant/room service Was told when we checked in that they haven’t had a restaurant in nearly 2 years The hot tub is broken They have construction going on None of the ice machines work on any floor except the first Elevators were dirty Tables pushed up against the wall Almost looked abandonedOur room curtains are ripped Lamp shades are broken Jacuzzi tub bubbles didn’t work Furniture scratched up Looks like it came out of a 50 year old motel 6 Missing knob on dimmer switch Cobwebs on the ceilingFor $350 a night I would expect more Would have also been nice if someone would have contacted us with the problems before booking it

The two rooms I stayed in were nice, but they both need some updating, especially the bathrooms Why all hotels think water isn’t going to leak all over the bathroom floor from the shower I have no clue- but there is no shutting the shower doors in those hotel room Pillows were too small, and mattress was a bit too firm for me

I had to be switched to another room because the battery stopped working on my thermostat and it was hot, but in the other room, the fan sounded like it was a plane engine ready to explodeThe front desk agents were not the friendliest and the overall experience was just not the most pleasant

This hotel was easily accessible from the expressway and close to everything we needed Our room was fairly clean apart from a few spots on the carpet here and there The garbage cans had no liners in them and housekeeping only cleans on request

We were told to leave garbage outside of our door during the day and someone would pick it up The room is decent sized and has a separate living area from the bedroom which I loved Pool and workout room were nice and breakfast was tasty and hot, just a little crowded My only real complaint would be check in I checked in late like 1030 11 pm Guests were crowding the check in desks just hanging out and talking I stood around for 15 or so minutes before an employee acknowledged me for check in Also, elevators There are 2 sets of 2 elevators but every day we were there only 1 of the 2 elevators was working on both sets

Patti Morgan

We were lucky to get a room on short notice on a Saturday afternoon The room was large and clean, and the fold out couch was perfect for the kidsThe trash cans in the room did not have liners, and the tub was slow at draining

There was plenty of soap available, and the hair products were much appreciatedThe breakfast spread was amazing Lots of cereal, fruit, and fresh cooked foodAll elevators were functioning, halls were clean, everything well in order in the lobby and lounge

Tom Flanigan

I stay at a lot of Hilton hotels Our stay was good but not great I’ve noticed Embassy Suites hotels are ran similarly

Overall, the stay was decent The room was a good size room for my family and the hotel was nice enough for our quick trip over memorial day weekend But we were missing a few things in the room we had to call and let the front desk know Missing tv remote and they had a fake phone in the bedroom The pool wasn’t heated and the staff weren’t that friendly Front desk personnel were nice At breakfast, the staff begins breaking down breakfast before 10am and actually shut the doors on people still getting food and coffee The bar staff at dinner weren’t outgoing and friendly but did their jobs Food was good but would like to be able to get coffee after 10am

The staff were nice The fridge barely made ice I turned on the ice maker in the freezer on Friday

For the total weekend, there were a total of 20 ice cubes, maybe Glad the freezer was cold enough to freeze my bottle water The toilet in our room was very low The bed was extra soft I’m used to a more firmer bed To top this weekend off, our car (along with 4 other guests) was broken into The thieves busted several car windows & stole the cash they found It wasn’t a lot of cash in the car It cost us more to pay for the window replacement Then we found out a similar incident happened a couple months ago at this location Our vandalism occurred between the hours of 12 midnight and 2:30am Monday, July 25th, 2022 During our stay there was a police car (what we thought was a police car was actually security) in the parking lot during the day At night this security person would make rounds at each hotel in the area In the end, 4 cars at this hotel were vandalized and 7 cars at the next hotel Needless to say, we don’t plan to stay at this location again We did file a police report and the front desk person was helpful in supplying guests with bags to put over their broken car window and a broom to sweep out the broken glass In the end, I wanted to share this with others to make them aware of the possibility of car vandalism in this area

Ladies – read this before booking a stay here! I travel frequently on business; most often alone Last week I stayed at this hotel with 2 colleagues The hotel was in very poor condition but I overlooked the many issues because it appears they have started a renovation somewhere inside {certainly not in the room I was in!} What I can’t overlook is a very serious safety concern with this hotel

One of my colleagues’ key cards stopped working in the middle of our stay He went to the front desk and the associate asked his room number and gave him new keys with no verification whatsoever! She didn’t ask his name, and she didn’t ask for an ID This is very concerning to me as she had no idea if he was an actual guest or a stalker that was about to enter a room and wait on an unassuming guest to arrive later This is inexcusable! Earlier in the week, another colleague was able to charge something to his room with zero ID verificationWhile nowhere near as serious, it does tell me that not verifying guests identity is a consistent issue here Travelers, and especially women, book reliable hotel chains when they are traveling alone and their safety should be the highest priority of hotel chains I have tried twice to reach the GM of the hotel, John Hickey, but he has yet to call me back even though I left detailed messages explaining I had a serious safety concern I’ll never stay at this hotel again…if you do, I suggest checking the closet before locking your door for the evening

David Abram

This hotel in general feels like a Days Inn motel, offering nothing at all special except a place to store your luggage while you lie on their misshapen, springy mattressesThe rooms have a pullout sofa bed thing that was actually only slightly less comfortable than the bed itself, which has probably been around since the 90s 0 stars for comfort

The shower/bath faucet was actually the wrong valve to match which was was hot and which way was cold You had to turn it toward cold to get hot, and hot to get cold Strangest thing everThe hallways repeat the Days Inn feel, but the lobby tries to make you feel like you’re joining a Marriott property 100% of their budget goes into pretending to be a Marriott, albeit the lowest version of one as a CourtyardThe price is okay, but you get what you pay for

Chance Cobbett

Seems great from the start but are fridge was so small I couldn’t put anything else in except 1 gallon of milk for my daughter, I honestly think the only microwave is in the lobby, pretty much if your traveling for work and a family member or 2 stays at the hotel they don’t have much resources to make your own food! I will also say my 1 year old daughter that sleeps through the night cried some during the day and are neighbors thought it’d be great the mock her and then she was even more upset, I went to the front desk and was told their wasn’t really anything they would do, long story short we checked out the next day

We stayed here for a weekend while we visited the zoo The hotel was a nice, easy drive to the zoo There were plenty of nearby restaurants

The front desk staff were helpful and nice I liked the layout of our room (felt bigger than some apartments I’ve been in) The bed was comfortable We didn’t get a chance to check out either of the two pools or workout areas, but they looked very nice The workout rooms were the best I’ve seen in a hotel The breakfast that was included with our stay was very good It was one of the best hotel breakfasts I’ve had The service there was great too There was a wedding going on each night we were there, so we had to park a little further away than we would have liked to, but it wasn’t a big deal One thing to consider when booking this hotel is know that it is a large complex We had to walk a good distance to the hotel and to our hotel room from the elevator This wasn’t an issue for us, but if you struggle walking long distances, it’s something you should consider

Zach Evick

I don’t normally write reviews, but this hotel exceeded our expectations for a weekend stay The room was spacious and great for our family of four Breakfast was the best hotel free breakfast with large variety

Our kids really enjoyed the indoor pool Several hours after we checked out, we realized my daughter left her stuffed animal in the hotel room After calling and talking with them, they didn’t find it in the room, but would keep a lookout in the laundry since we thought it was left on the bed Before we left town we went back to the hotel to check and every worker knew about the missing stuffed animal and went above and beyond to try and find it They went through all the laundry bins and eventually found it after it went through the washer I’m forever grateful for these workers helping find my daughters stuffy Nationwide should be proud for such a great staff We will always stay at Nationwide when visiting Columbus and tell everyone we know to stay there too Thank you guys so much!

Jackie Ulmer

Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center went above and beyond our expectations It is truly a hidden gem in Columbus, Ohio What drew us to the venue, and specifically the Edgewater room, was how relaxed, yet elegant the space was

The room is surrounded with windows and an abundance of natural light We looked at many venues in Columbus, but the cost, quality of food/drink, and quality of the venue space/hotel, is incomparable to the other venues The customer service provided by all of the staff members was incredible The staff and event team is highly organized and they did a fabulous job communicating with us and bringing our reception vision to life They were extremely accommodating and did everything in their power to make even the smallest details a priority I cannot recommend Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center enough!

Breakfast is always missing something whether it be milk, juice even water sometimes Laundry room is small and is out of order Pool is not open

I could tell the room wasn’t cleaned before I checked in, and my dishwasher had old food stuck to the bottom From my understanding this hotel used to be really good but now that it’s under new management It has really been underwhelming I’m still staying here so I’ll update it at the end of my stay

Robert Wolf

I have stayed at several other Sonesta ES locations in the past and typically had good experiences The problems with this location was not the staff as they were polite and helpful The condition of the room on the other hand, leaves much to be desired

Our room had a great floor plan with two bedrooms, a full kitchen and seperate living area However, the TV in one bedroom did not have a picture, only sound The kitchen faucet was mounted so loose I had to use two hands to turn the water on as I felt it would be ripped right off of the counter One of the headboards was torn very badly and looked terrible We found several stink bugs in the room which my infant daughter almost grabbed one The sofa was also stained and torn and had makeshift covers over them to “hide” their poor condition Cobwebs were in on the bathroom ceilings, one of which had a dead spider Also, there was a fireplace as advertised, but was inoperable Lastly, the windows were so drafty, my wife had to use coat hangers and a blanket to cover them to prevent our daughter from getting too cold I would not recommend staying here

Nida Syed

Do not stay here! Instead go to home2Suites This place is disgustingly grimy There was grime everywhere

on the side of toilet, on the walls, kitchen cabinets, fridge, kitchen sink, microwave(inside, outside, underneath), bathroom Disgusting stains on bed board, walls, doors The kitchen drawers had leftover food crumbs from prior residents had greasy finger prints all over cabinets microwave The kitchen sink and sink handle was so disgusting had to use a glove to use it I have very sensitive skin my skin starting itching everywhere within a few minutes Again stay away from this establishment!!! There cleaning staff don’t bother to clean after other residents leave 🤮🤮🤮

Mixed review here The staff has been fantastic; helpful, competent and attentive The public spaces are welcoming and attractive but the furniture isn’t the most comfortable The room is a nice space and the bathroom is super nice The room, however, is entirely covered in laminate flooring Not a fan Regardless of the heat setting the floor stayed cold, it’s slippery when wet and feels pretty industrial While this otherwise is a really nice property, I don’t think I’d stay here again specifically for the flooring

Kimberly Marsh

Good staff Good common spaces Small Indoor pool for exercise

Nice fitness room with rower etc and accommodations are good Little quirky things Nautical theme is kind of weird since its landlocked area with retention pond as only water feature But weirdest thing was the door sensor to roomStopped working Got new room but staff had to break into other room to get our things We waited at least an hour so good thing we did that funeral like we had yesterday, or wedding etc Got a call late at night asking about our $120 bar bill for Raymond No Raymond here and certainly 2 drinks didn’t cost $120 Otherwise the rate is good Lots of outdoor places to sit near the pond and some games too

Rob Keisling

Fantastic location, each & every stay Very clean & well-maintained property in a very nice location Staff are very professional & courteous

Strong attention to detail in a modern facility make for an enjoyable stay Daily housekeeping is a welcome return from the covid hiatus Restaurant is well above-average for hotel in both food and service Sam was great at breakfast Bartenders are very friendly and engaging You will be glad you stay here

Sierra checked us in a studio late Friday night The check in was effortless, and very friendly Once we got in the room, Sierra came and delivered us an extra set of bedsheets and covers for the pull out sofa—very thoughtful

I was impressed with how friendly and welcoming she was And we loved our studio room It was very clean and spacious The bathroom was nice and big and the oversized shower was appreciated The bed was extremely comfortable —we loved every min of our stay Breakfast in the morning was nice and we really liked that checkout was at noon We will never hesitate to stay here again after a fun night out in the town I think we found our new family favorite hotel chain Thanks for an awesome stay and wonderful service

Rob Andrews

I’ve been in several different residence inns over the years and this one is very well laid out The rooms were very well maintained Will be staying here for the next 2 months off and on as my husband is doing training with a company in the area

Only drawback compared to some of the others is that there is no balconies so if you happen to be a smoker like myself and you’re anywhere but on the first floor it can be a little bit of a haul to get to an elevator or stairwell in order to head outside Otherwise the facilities on the property are in very good shape and don’t really have any complaints about their breakfast either

Tina DuShane

I would not recommend staying here The bedding looked as though they did not clean in from the previous person Stopped at the front desk asked if it could be changed, yes they said

Returned to the room later that afternoon to find they only flipped the comforter to the other side I have pictures of the filth that looks like feces and urine! Went to the front desk again, told them about it Their response “we are not housekeeping but we can give you the stuff to do it yourself!!” I am an elite Bonvoy member and have never had service like this DO NOT STAY HERE!

This is a great property The hotel is new and very modern The bed is very nice and comfortable

The hotel room is very spacious and modern Nicole at the front desk is amazing She took the time to get to know me I would come back to this property and time And you probably need to give Nicole a raise She is going to be instrumental in the success of your hotel They don’t have a free breakfast but I guess no one is perfect

Andreas Johansson

OMG! PROBABLY THE BEST BED in the northern parts of Columbus Aloft is a modern boutique hotel great for stays in the area, and certainly the only place I’ll return to this side of 270 Room was open plan, tiled shower, whole room blackout shades for that sleeping in action… No hot breakfast but your within sniffing distance of a double-double from Tim Horton’s

Highly recommended! And perfect pillows!


They charged me $200for my room when their price is listed at 115$ online The desk staff was very rude and a guest tried even tried to clue her in that she was being rude and she said told him that I didn’t mind I did

I was checking in after a long and arduous journey and she stopped in the middle of that process to care for another guest that came to the counter after I did So yes, I did mind The room was dirty, there was even a dusty M and M under the bed as if it hadn’t been cleaned in a long while There were stains on the blinds, and I don’t mean permanent stains, these were like some unknown dried up material that could have been cleaned off if any sort of attention to detail had been paid to the issue The blinds don’t close all the way so much light leaks through making it very hard to fall asleep They moved my room but the next room had the same issue of the blind not closing properly over the window with the AC unit The rooms are very noisy and were built with no thought given to the acoustical properties of the construction materials Every door slam in the hallway can be heard in the room all of the activities can be heard in the next room, room across the hall and upstairs Altogether an awful experience and since every conversation can be heard I know for sure there was a couple trying to buy some percocet from some guy they saw in the hallway This place deserves negative stars I travel extensively for work, and stay in many hotels so I know very well this room was not worth the $200they decided to charge when they saw me walk in, exhausted from my travels I hope this review helps others, stay elsewhere

Room was not as advertised, pics not representative of the hotelI checked in and the hotel was dated and I continued anyway Staff was friendly and I feel it’s not their fault for the buildings lack of upkeep so I gave this review a 2

This holiday inn express does not align to the standards of previous Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed Paper thin walls, a door that has light shining through the cracks and I had no confidence switching rooms was going to have a different outcome Not clean anywhereI had to immediately check out and relocate The front desk was friendly and helped me exit, plus provide a refund and got me on my way I drove another 20 mins and found another place to stay


Unfortunately my room was not very clean It was dusty The ventilation did not work in the bathroom

Their was some mold and the paint was pealing off the ceiling of the bathroom One side of the bed was comfortable, the other side had been used so much you would sink into a hole Possibly just my room and the other aren’t as worn But that was my personal experience

Brittany Atkins

I really enjoyed my stay here We actually have stayed at this hotel 2x: Once on the way to our destination and once on the way backThis was the first ihg hotel I’ve ever stayed at and it started my loyalty to ihg hotels

I signed up for one of the ihg credit cards and everythingThe staff members were very nice, helpful, and they kindly let me have a later check-out I’m not sure why there are a lot of people that are being extra and salty in the reviews The rooms were clean and had a lot of space, the beds were comfy, they had good wifi and tv service, and the shower/bath water temperature was good too

They want $1250 / person to eat (no free coffee either) Our room A/C isn’t keeping up, it’s warm, our A/C unit is leaking, causing the carpet surrounding the A/C to be SOAKED (I’m sure it is also moldy) and our bathroom smells like wet dog Also, when you turned the shower on, it sounds like 1,000 bees behind the shower wall (there aren’t actually bees, it is just really obnoxious) The toilet runs and runs and runs I’m just flabbergasted they have the audacity to ask for $1250 / guest for breakfast on top of our already expensive booking costs when our room isn’t even worth $170+ a night We’re paying $37609 for two nights here Which also makes no sense seeing as how our booking through Expedia was only $34192 Just overall NOT PLEASED with our stay here in any way, shape or form **WOULD NOT RECOMMEND**

Before I rip the hotel apart, I want to first off start by saying the staff is incredible The people at the front desk are amazing, they’re probably some of the nicest people you’ll come across, are literally as accommodating as possible, and the lady who makes the breakfast in the mornings will always say good morning They truly go the extra mile to do everything they can

As far as the hotel, the air in the pool room was well over 100°, the room itself wasn’t that great and they were low on extra pillows so I was forced to only have one the duration of my stay because I’m allergic to feathersThe bathroom smelled of mildew, and they use 1-ply toilet paper in the rooms You couldn’t keep the room fans on if you turned the lights off, and they still used a register in my room instead of central (thermostat air)However, upon asking at the front desk for non down pillows, the staff immediately looked for an extra When I needed a water, they gave me one Power was out in most of the city because of a heatwave, and with everything going on in the staffs lives that they had to deal with, they were as good as it gets Even with their computers down they were scrambling to get everything coordinated and truly trying their best There’s a lot worse hotel gyms as well, the gym wasn’t half badThose people deserve a raise, and they deserve a lot of fixes to the hotel rooms

Melissa is an amazing manager! She is very accommodating and quick! We had an issue with Bookingcom and our reservation and she immediately was on the phone with them and worked the issue out so we could rest comfortable after our ten hour drive from SC The breakfast was really good!!There was a strange issue with someone pulling the fire alarm but things were sorted quickly and we all returned to our rooms within thirty minutes (def much faster than another time that happened to us at a different hotel!)

Rooms are clean and comfortable and the wifi is awesome! The pool is nice and big!Highly recommend!!!

Great hotel stay! Clean and spacious rooms, great water park for the kids We enjoyed hot showers and baths(water pressure was amazing) not to mention the Dove products provided The breakfast was a winner

I will definitely stay here again!! The staff is nice & friendly Only negative is not staying longer I definitely recommend this hotel for a large family looking for a weekend getaway or stopping while traveling The price is unbeatable & we couldn’t hear other guests staying

Joyce Wootten

Location is perfect! Your one minute from Top Golf, Ikea, Loads of other shopping and the highway 71 There is supposed to be free breakfast, but at 8:30 all that was left was sausages and toast

everything else was gone and the pancake machine was down We had to wait 10 minutes just for coffee The rooms were good and the pool is fantastic! Even though children are not allowed in the hot tub it was filled with tiny kids and we couldn’t use it

Stayed Last Thursday- Saturday and we had a great experience Angela at the front desk was super helpful and kind Actually, al the staff was really wonderful

Pros:-Clean rooms-Would recommend for families-Great breakfast options ( cheese, omelettes, sausage, hash browns, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, bagels, English muffins, yogurt, cereal)- Pool area is excellent However, I don’t think it is the most appropriate for 15 year old (which is how old my daughter is) There is a step down to get into the water and the shallow end is still about 1-15 ft deep so not much of an area where a toddler could just sit in shallow water ( 0-6 inches) and just splash around Would work the best for just a tad older kids All the kids I saw in the pool area was having a blast and they looked to be anywhere from 5- early teens- They have quiet hours from 10p-7am- Microwave and mini fridge in the roomCons:- The water was cold 🙁 when you walk in to the pool area it feels like the water will be warm but it was super chilly I think each time we only spent about 1/2 hour in the pool area and my daughter didn’t want to be in the pool because how chilly it was Her had a purple/blue tint to them because of her chillLocation: I think it is a great location to Polaris However it is not on the same side as the mall There are limited options for walking to a nearby restaurant I imagine you could have more op
