On the surface this location is very nice Once I got settled in my room I found that this place needs a lot of maintenance attention The tile in the bathroom has been “fixed” with caulk and pretty poorly

The carpets need to be replaced They show signs of serious wear Hot water was practically non-existent I turned the shower on full hot water and it barely got warm enough to tolerate The location and staff are very nice They need to do some updating

I have stayed here for years! The staff are always friendly and helpful I came to visit my mom because she broke her hip at 93 and is not doing well I had to bring my work with me

I’m a captioner and couldn’t give up the job They hooked me up with their conference/meeting room and got me hard wired to the Internet so I could provide captions to the Deaf and hard of hearing! They didn’t charge me for the meeting room! They go above & beyond to help out!! I’m back again because they just keep proving they are going to provide 5 ⭐️ service every time! The rooms are always clean The breakfast is always good! You’re not going to get an omelet made for you, but the food is packaged and there’s variety It’s perfect for being on the go!

Not as clean as we would have liked it I did find a fairly large stain on the comforter of our bed Booger on sink

Bathroom very outdated and small We were on the first floor and it was horrible To the point I wanted to move rooms Very loud at night, and there was a picnic table outside of our window that people went to all nights of the hr and we heard everything Pool was also outdated but clean Breakfast was okay, great selection though I will say the staff was amazing Everything we needed or complained about was fixed immediately Older lady who works during breakfast is so sweet Just wasn’t highly satisfied with our room unfortunately

So, the hotel is pretty nice and clean But the AC went out in our room and I called the desk at 3:00am to say “Hey we’re roasting in here even though the thermostat is set to 60!” The response was, “I’m just the night clerk, not a mechanic I suggest you open your window

” We did end up doing that but it didn’t help much, it was still hella hot, plus there were no screens on the windows so a couple bugs flew in, AND worse, starting at about 6am, birds and traffic noises began coming through loud and clear! When we checked out, I mentioned it and the clerk said, “Oh yeah the AC went out for the whole hotel last night Sorry ’bout that” Like nothing else? No, “we’ll comp your valet parking for 1 day” “How about a free breakfast voucher?” Nothing For $300 we expected a MUCH better experience!!

We stayed at the Blackwell Inn on the executive floor The room was spacious and well decorated I loved the bed

The air conditioning was perfect The bathroom had all the items needed (Toothbrush kit, shaving kit, shower bonnet etc) The service was great The entire hotel was clean and smelled fresh We used valet They were fast and efficient I would return for sure

John Saks

The room and hotel were nice My issue was with the hotel desk staff We are concerned about COVID, and the girl at the desk didn’t put on a mask, even though we were wearing masks

I know their guidelines say they don’t have to wear masks, but it would be courteous of them to do it if the customers are wearing masks After all, they are working in the hospitality industry, and catering to customers’ concerns is hospitable

Daniel Geaslen (IndoBushPilot)

The staff are friendly and helpful The location is really nice with a fair amount of dining near by The rooms are in ok shape, not incredible, but reasonable

The hot breakfast is not the best hotel breakfast I’ve ever had, but it’s not awful On the whole, this Homewood Suites is just fine I’ve stayed there quite a bit in the last 2 months and it’s a tolerable home away from home

Cindy S Barker

Suite is perfect with full kitchen and fireplace Staff was really caring and service oriented Manager, Justin a very open and friendly gentleman was present and on top of things so I saw no issues

Housekeeping staff was amazing and very helpful I especially appreciated Ibn I am currently using a walker and he went out of his way to open doors for me and to make sure i was comfortable Ibn is also the reason the public areas sparkle Girls in housekeeping are friendly an good at what they do Give them all a raise We’ll be back!

Aarin Pesko-Morales

My overall experience at this location was positive but was disappointed by the lack of attention to detail regarding room cleanliness (M&M candy on floor near refrigerator and dirty top of refrigerator) This location has a Whole Foods that is very convenient The fitness room says 24/7 but was not

Self check-in and room key via phone worked and was a huge plus

I enjoyed my experience of this beautiful hotel! The service was exceptional! And the inside and outside location of the hotel was awesome! My parking was right there in front of the hotel, and I was on the third floor my room was right by the elevator and the ice machine great service! And my room was amazing absolutely beautiful and the beds were so comfortable I did not want to get up everything was on the up and up very satisfied I would definitely stay there again and again and again!! Plus they had all kinds of stuff on the property I wish I would have took advantage of getting a Starbucks before I left:-( but the atmosphere and the furniture and the people were amazing it makes me wish they were closer because I’m all the way in Kentucky almost 6 hours away pretty much but it was awesome and I don’t regret it!!

Bill & Cheryl Dunn

Beautiful hotel and excellent location for us If you have a wedding or meeting at the Event Center it is right nextdoor Haley at the front desk was delightful and did me solid by letting us check in early before a wedding

Made my day! The entire staff were helpful, polite and accommodating Pretty close to downtown and OSU There are dining choices nearby but not fast food that I could see


MAJOR PARKING PROBLEMS and expensive!!! I am a business traveler and stay in hotels over 100 nights a year This hotel is well kept and nice but it’s really expensive, ($319 for one night in a room with 2 queen beds) When we got in the room we quickly realized there we no coffee cups, so I had to go to the front desk to get some

For some reason stuff is missing from the room about 90% of the time when I stay at Marriott Discovering how to get to the front of the hotel and finding a place to park is a total nightmare!! The “front” of the hotel is not on the main street and you have to drive thru a public parking garage to the “back” to find the entrance?? Google Maps was no help so you are on your own, it’s confusing They do not have a parking lot for the hotel, no valet and you have to use a public garage in front The garage is free but was totally full We had to drive around for 15 min hoping someone would leave to free up a space We were one of about 10 vehicles that were doing the same Frustrating We didn’t get back to the hotel till the wee hours of the morning and it was still full! We will never stay here again There are way better hotels within 5 miles of this one that have plenty of parking or valet serviceAvoid the hassle and go elsewhere NOT RECOMMEND!

I stayed here last night and loved it! The young man with blond hair who greeted us at the front desk made us feel welcome and well-taken care of When we had a small issue with our room, he rectified it immediately and made us feel at ease I really appreciated the soft lighting and silent ambiance of our room; it was perfect after a long day of running around the city

I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Columbus, and would absolutely stay here again myself

Joe Eide

Great place to stay, as we stayed here for a baseball tournament in the area with our entire team of 11 year old boys (also during the weekend of the Memorial) They have a very nice patio and pool, as well lobby, and breakfast wasn’t too bad either I definitely recommend staying here for a night, weekend, or however long you will be in town

There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance, and for those that feel the urge, there is a Dave and Busters within walking distance I will definitely stay there again, as I often come down for the Memorial TournamentI also have to add that Leo, at the front desk, is such a great person and made us feel very welcome

Nihu’s Honey Gurls

This hotel is awesome It definitely bought normalcy back from the Covid madness The hotel is very clean and well kept

I received an exemplary greeting at the front desk upon my arrival for my son’s wedding After I had gotten settled, in my room that was perfectly cooled with the air already set, I received a text message asking if everything was to my satisfaction That has never happened in any other Hilton brands in which I’ve stayed I thought it may have been auto generated but responded anyway Nope! It was not automaton A real live person (Meca) responded back accordingly Impressive customer service I love it! The room was beyond perfect for what I neededThe bed was comfortable and slept really well I love the entire room set up The light in the restroom to assist with steaming my dress was a very nice surprise and much neededWhen I went to breakfast I was greeted with a very friendly and genuine “good morning” from Tiauna She greeted every single person who came in with the same genuine greeting I even heard her explain the extra charges (hold for incidentals) to someone who had inquired of her She did not refer them to the front desk for assistance She went above and beyond her duties Love it!Thank you Hilton for restoring my faith back into your brand This was going to be my last stay as I just had, within the last month two bad experiences with two of your other hotels I’ve been an exclusive Hilton brands user/ member for over 30 years One of your hotels canceled my reservation for a meeting room that was to be used for rehearsal dinner 3 weeks before my son’s wedding due to upcoming (but couldn’t tell me exact date because she did not know) renovations I found this unacceptable We lost money on booked vendors due to late notice and had to just go to a restaurant for the rehearsal dinner This is NOT what we wanted The other hotel canceled my reservation completely, without notice until the morning of my scheduled arrival due to my credit card not been updated due to my oversight after my personal information was stolen You send many emails and I believe a courtesy email would have been nice I found it strange that they were trying to run my card anyway since I had not checked in This hotel did not do that In fact my card was scanned, by myself, upon my arrival That was another plus for this hotel I hope whatever training was done for the employees here is implemented throughout your brand Whoever manages the Hilliard Ohio location deserves a bonus for themselves and their employees Thank you team Hilliard for a great stay You’ve restored my faith in Hilton brands

I expect more when I visit AC properties The location is great and the front desk staff is friendly and accommodating The food options were limited as we visited on a Sunday evening during COVID, which is fine However, the rooms themselves seemed to be quite dirty for a newer hotel

The cleanliness was more in line with what I expect at a Days InnThe room I was initially given had a stained mattress, so I requested a new room and noticed this room had red stains in the exact same spot next to the nightstand Apparently the construction of the bed leads to any spills on the nightstand staining the mattress a blood red color since the bedframe and nightstands are connected They could mitigate this by putting washable bed bug covers on the bed, but instead they have cheap torn mattress covers that don’t protect the much of anything We also noticed that the floors in the room were very dirty in both rooms and our feet tended to stick to the floors We walked on them briefly in white socks, and noticed right away that our socks were turning black from the dirt We made sure to wear our shoes the rest of the nightAlso, when booking on the Marriott app as a gold member during a low vacancy time period, I listed a high floor, extra pillows and a crib or pack and play as my requested preferences; none of those were accommodated without me having to request them again after checking into our room when we noticed they weren’t there It wasn’t a big deal, but would have been nice to have them available as soon as we arrived since we were tired and wanted to put our newborn to bed

Molly Roup

The AC Hotel was the hotel we had our wedding hotel block at, and they were absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish! Shay was so responsive and so helpful with all of the set-up And all of the management staff went above and beyond to make us and our guests feel welcome and taken care of Would absolutely recommend working with this group!

Neelam Patel

The hotel is new, looks great, love the king bed room with a sofaBut special mention to Ali and their friendly staff Ali made us feel extra welcome and was honestly a reason we would come back here sooner

Unfortunately we did have a guest who was staying above us walk around til 1:30am and woke me up in the morning too as I’m a light sleeper But I think that can happen any place

When you are traveling and Life is throwing curveballs at you left and right, one after another, you just want to get to a hotel that is clean and quiet This is how our day was today However, it was our great luck that we had chosen to stay at this hotel

The decor is modern, the parking is great, and there are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby We had a great view of the Olentangy River from our room The beds were comfortable with nice linens, clean floor, and clean bathroom with the standard toiletries and hair dryer Bonus – we enjoyed an early check-in with no line The front desk staff was precise and efficientWorthy of mention was Katie, the Front Desk Manager She was cordial, polite, and conversational Her kind words and actions certainly earned the entire experience at Hampton 6 stars out of 5 !

My husband and I spent two nights at this location while attending a family wedding We always enjoy staying at Hampton Inns, and this property had the comfortable rooms and amenities that we’ve come to expect from the Hampton brand There were a few minor issues that prevent me from giving five stars and had me considering a three star rating

First, our room did not have a shower curtain, making it difficult to keep the bathroom floor dry during a shower We arrived very late at night after several long days of travel, so we simply didn’t have the energy to look into fixing this issue as we mostly wanted to use the room to rest before the wedding we were attendingSecond, my husband, who never complains about his interactions with businesses and tends to give those with customer facing jobs the benefit of the doubt, had a brief but unpleasant interaction with a member of the breakfast staff He tells me they were speaking to him like an employee and not a guest, complaining that he had not replaced a lid on the eggs being served I later observed another member of the breakfast team speaking abruptly and appearing very stressed, leaving me to wonder if this very busy area is understaffedFinally, housekeeping opened our door twice without knocking, entering the room unannounced the second time Once is a mistake, but the second time makes me think this is a lack of proper training or a lack of organization, especially since there’s a message in the room saying they will not provide housekeeping during your stay unless you request itAll of these issues are minor, and we really did enjoy our stay, but I think this property and its staff have some room for growth

Chasidy Perkins

My family and I stayed here for my son’s two day football camp and it was a pleasant experience The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, and the continental breakfast was amazing! Very close to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center if you need to go there for anything The only down side I had was that they didn’t have a hot tub but they did have a nice pool

I would recommend this hotel to others who need to stay in the area Also, try the restaurant, Roosters which is in walking distance, it’s great!

Stay was fine until we tried to get hot water for showers Had to ask for another room to try and shower in but also no hot water there We were refunded for the stay which was great but definitely an inconvenience and we were late to our event Sunday morning

Nice hotel layout with the pool location Exercise area could use some attention Probably would if given a 5 if we had hot water

Kathy Mayer

I thought that the rooms were fine, but had a few details and suggestions to share First, the positive: The night desk person (Devon) was absolutely a delight He was kind and friendly, so just the kind of person you would want to greet guests

The breakfast buffet was disappointing Mini omelets with Velveeta type cheese in the middle were not hot and cheese not melted Potatoes were good and French toast sticks ok No bananas or other healthy options NOT worth $1200 My advice is to just serve the usual cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, waffles, etc that lower cost hotels offer I noticed that not many guests ate the buffet breakfast We ate from it the first day, then brought back breakfast sandwiches from a fast food place and bought bananas Regards, K Mayer


Surprised I didn’t see any other reviews complaining of the noise, but the walls in this place are paper thinWe could hear every word of the conversations in the rooms on either side of us, and these folks weren’t being loud at all… Luckily no one was using the pool late, because the sounds from the hallway are worse

Needless to say, we slept terriblyThe walls in the room and the bathroom were dirty with splatters and random stainsThe beds were fine There’s a small Starbucks in the lobby, which is nice

I truly recommend this location whether it is business or leisure My interactions were for business and when I say they have the best customer service, they have the best customer service!Laura Byers, the assistant director of sales was phenomenal! Overall, I highly recommend this hotel You will not be disappointed and if you are kindly express your concern at that moment and I am sure that things will turn around in your favor

Due to the customer service, this hotel gets a 5-star rating 🤗Thank you Embassy, and especially Laura B

Allison Wagner

I came for a professional conference, stayed 2 nights The room appeared clean, until I noticed an odd stain next to the bed, and on the curtains The room could use some updating and repair to the furniture

The bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet Breakfast buffet was good The conference rooms on the ground floor were freezing every time I went in for a session It was 90 degrees outside, and I was looking up the closest place to buy a jacket Overall, not a bad place to stay, but I expected something a little cleaner for the price


Room was nice and clean, had plenty of space for a hotel room The cable had been disconnected but was hooked back up by the staff after we called We stayed over a weekend and the pool is warm and clean but there’s no towels available unless you ask at the front desk

Staff doesn’t enforce any pool rules so noise and occupancy gets crazy in there Staff doesn’t monitor any type of noise in the hotel at all either There were kids and adults hollering in the lobby and running the walkways until almost 1am The bar in the lobby is nice but when people blare music and scream all not, it makes the evening less than enjoyable Parking is 10 bucks a night and we were charged a different rate for the room each night we were there Decent hotel if you only consider room condition but I won’t stay there again due to all the other issues

Stayed here from 8/11 to 8/13- Absolutely fantastic experience Breakfast was well cooked and had a great selection Our room was clean, large, and very quiet

It almost sounded like no one else was in the hotel!My only complaint was that they didn’t have a pool, but that is clearly started on the site so I won’t dock them for itFor those visiting the Columbus zoo, this was a very short bus ride from the zoo and it was super convenient!

Nico Kinner

Very nice hotel Rooms were very comfortable with great accommodations, accessories, storage and personal care items as well as a smart television There is a nice bar and lounge area with knowledgeable bartending staff which is also where the complimentary breakfast is hosted

There is no pool The room layouts are kind of goofy as the television is placed in a corner making it difficult for all to see and the restroom is in the middle, not bad, just different and goofy feeling at first Overall a very nice place in a great location with a great staff and a free parking garage directly across the street

Paul Goldbeck

Wonderful accommodations Good bedding Slept easy

Shower pressure was great and the design of the room was modern and very easy to be comfy in Service staff was friendly and informative and the desk personnel were considerate and patient We used the bar at night and our bartender made the drink we wanted even though she had never made it beforeBreakfast was superb (and filling) we enjoyed it muchly

Super trendy The whole aesthetic of the place is 5/5 Very modern

Bartenders whip up some great drinks! The rooms and a little small and lacking a small refrigerator, but honestly that’s the only complaint I haveand if that’s the only complaint, I consider it a perfect experienceThe nice fire to enjoy drinks around was a massive plus!OH andthey really do take care of the cleanliness of the entire hotel and meet the cleaning standards of what is needed to keep covid at bayWe will most definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family!

Team Minney

My husband and I enjoyed our stay They had everything we needed and coffee and bagels for breakfast There is also an awesome restaurant attached but not affiliated

We stayed on a Thursday night on the 7th floor and could still hear the bar below us going til 2:30 So if you are looking for a quiet hotel maybe not this one I also would not bring my kids to this hotel It’s more of a upscale and modern hostel Neat concept and friendly employees You will pay for parking so be prepared

mark kotch

My wife and I stayed for a short trip It was very trendy We had a amazing view

Loved that they give you beer tokens when you check in at the bar The 6th floor terrace was a relaxing spot to hang out The roof top bar Mandrakes was awesome! The view and atmosphere was great and it was a short elevator ride to our room after The short north area is also awesome we did a food tour All the art and shops were nice as well We will definitely be back much more to talk aboutMy only complaint would be I wish the rooms had a mini fridge, but we had a cooler so no problem

Very nice hotel not too far off the toll road My kids were amazed that there were people in suits since we don’t usually stay in fancy hotels The property is shared by a Residence Inn, which might have slightly lower prices

The pool is a little small but was good enough for our needs The executive lounge (if you have enough Marriott status) offered a very good breakfast that filled up all my kids

Stayed here while my daughter and I visited OSU

was very impressed ! Rooms are clean and spacious and quiet The bed was super comfortable ! Staff was very accommodating especially the front desk people At first, I had trouble finding parking until I realized they have a huge lot in the back Bar is nice too – we only had their continental breakfast for $13 so can’t really comment on the restaurants However, I would advise eating at a local restaurant as so many great options in Columbus

For a Marriott Hotel, I expected a lot more I’m going to give a fair list of Pro’s and Cons’sPros- Hotel is beautiful, truly feels like your classic Marriott hotel Very modern and updated, lobby furniture is comfortable and lots of plugs

– Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating Nothing felt like a hassle or like we were wrong for asking a question, they were fantastic!-Rooms were clean and well kept upon arrival-Pool was Heated-Fitness center had fresh water and had a decent amount of machinesNow for cons which unfortunately there are more than pros, in order from least importance to most importanceCons-There was no microwave in the rooms Not a big deal but if you’ve already had a shower and you’re in your pj’s, it’s kind of a hassle to put on some sweatpants or a jacket to walk all the way downstairs to the lobby, make your food, and then take it back up At that point it’s not even really hot anymore-Despite the pool being heated, the AC was blowing in the room with the pool which made it kind of cold despite the water being warm-Pool was very small I understand this is more of a “conference” hotel but for a hotel of that size, it should have most definitely been larger-There was no Jacuzzi/Hot tub It’s like they think corporate people don’t like to sit back and relax either, I was very disappointed about that-I didn’t expect complimentary breakfast but holy cow it was $1295 per person if you wanted it And it wasn’t made to order You could walk next door to Bob Evan’s and get a made to order breakfast for about the same price or about $2 more- The shower head had very low water pressure Thankfully my father was traveling with me and was able to tighten it and fix it but if it had just been me I would not have been able to reach it or known to fix it like that-The bathroom door is a sliding glass barn door While it looks cool and is nice, since there is no real door, you can hear everything from the bathroom in the room……-The hotel is very large and the lack of signage makes it very confusing! They need to hand out a little map to everyone when they check in I know many people who got a lost in these combined hotels on this trip Even the elevators were confusing cause they all have weird quirks to them-In order to get daily housekeeping you have to call down to the front desk and “request” it This doesn’t necessarily bother me as they may not have enough resources to clean everybody’s room everyday However if you are someone that wants fresh towels each day you need to request housekeeping What DID bother me is that no one had informed us at check in or any other point that we had to call down and request daily housekeeping Once again, my issue isn’t having to request it, it’s that no one let us know we had to request it in order to receive the service Towards the end of the first day we called to the front desk and asked why there hadn’t been any housekeeping that came by and that’s when they informed us- and put us down for daily housekeeping after that-This is my biggest grievance The temperature and climate in the rooms is out of control The room was literally humid Like the air was thick and damp Made it very hard to sleep The only thing that kind of helped the humidity in the room was turning the air on but oh my gosh it was freezing! There’s only two settings for the AC and the one that blew the air less made the room extremely humid and the other blew freezing cold air on your face the whole night, no matter which way you turned the vents We even tried adjusting the temperature and turning off the fan but it didn’t do much Ultimately left with a choice of freeze or struggle to breathe Absolutely horrible It was not just our room We traveled in a very large party and everyone else said the same thing I literally asked everyone in our party- no jokeI’m giving it a solid 3 out of 5 For a “luxury” brand it was not a “luxury” experienced but it could have been much worse I would not stay here again given the choice

This hotel was gorgeous We were a little upset because we were not aware they were having a car show convention and it was very packed during our stay We were attempting to relax and it did make it harder

But overall the hotel is very pretty and the location isn’t bad for where it is in Dublin I think it was fairly priced and the bar staff is immaculate That is the one thing I could not be more happy with They were lovely The front desk staff weren’t very helpful After checking us in we had to look around for a while to find the elevators because we were not explained where to go for our rooms, and the elevators are so slow There are definitely some downsides to this hotel but it is pretty, the rooms are modern and cozy, the showers get so hot This hotel could easily be a 5 star hotel if they did some functionality updates because the lobby is breathtaking and the rooms are so upscale

Richard Fallon

Decent, but for the price it could be better The room I stayed in had a slider door for the bathroom which didn’t block any sounds and was hard to operate The bathroom also didn’t have a fan, and not microwave in the room

Beds were good and the tv was nice The restaurant on site said online it was open to midnight but was closed before 11 which was a let down Small but good pool and decent work out room Easy to get to off the highway

Larry Balla

Really nice hotel, but really expensive food! Breakfast buffet was $2395 A bottle of water and a Snickers bar was $7

00Rooms were terrific! Very clean and comfortable Staff was friendly Lots of parking, lots of hood restaurants nearby

Location was great for what we needed Some mold was around the ceiling in the bathroom There were 4 of us, and only three towels in the room

No biggie, just asked for more but you would think they would know how many guests were in the room Also needed more shampoo, and they don’t clean your room daily anymore Probably staffing issues Probably would try one of the other hotels in the vicinity next time

Tj Breitmeier

We used the Hilton app to check in and out, so I did not interact with the staff The app works well The digital key works better than the key cards you get at the front desk

The curtains were confusing but there is a set of black out curtains, between the sheer curtains and the window, that are somewhat hidden but do close all the way USB outlets on the side tables beside the bed were a nice touch There wasn’t an obvious hotel directory and I had to search the website for information It would be nice if the app included check out times, hours for continental breakfast, and other general information for the hotel The inside of the cabinet with the mini fridge was beat up, but furniture is made poorly these days and I don’t find fault in the hotel for thisWhat we saw of the hotel was clean and had expected wear from people occupying the rooms I was pleased that there was no smell of cigarettes or dogs and we could not hear any trafficWe did not get to try the breakfast, but it smelled good as we were checking out I will likely stay here again

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

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
