    The bed was comfortable.

    It didn't seem like a great area to be in. The first night we had people pounding on the door and calling our room from 1am to 3am. It was actually pretty scary.

    Superb

    It is nice for the price and was very close to the activities we were participating in. The breakfast was ok.. The room was clean and bed comfortable.

    The lights on the outside of the hotel did not come on till way after dark, that made it a little unnerving since this was 2 women traveling together. Need a little better selection on the breakfast, and fresh fruit, not apples that have been there a week.

    The only reason I stay here is because of it's proximity to the Ohio Village across the street. I appreciated the bottles of water in the room.

    The carpeting smelled and looked disgusting. The bathroom walls were falling apart. The pillows were all lumps. The bed was hard. The breakfast was pathetic. The staff is terrible.

    Easy to get to and very close to the fair grounds.

    Lock on the door only had one screw so I didn't feel very secure. Carpet was dirty/discolored, couldn't tell which. Breakfast that was offered was not acceptable, nothing to choose from.

    Very good

    I took pics ofrom the dirty smudged light switch in the bath, the floor and the dust still on the frame from maybe construction of sorts. Made me wonder if things like door knob and toilet seat and knob weren't wiped.

    Very good

    The bed was extremely comfortable it was a quiet hotel when we had stayed there very little noise from other guests or outside traffic.

    Was not impressed with their breakfast. But there is a McDonald's right next door for a quick bite to eat.

    Good

    Room was full of flies, we had to hang our own fly strips. Bathroom fan was loud and reverberated throughout the room. Dirty washcloth from previous occupant was left hanging on the shower curtain rod..Room phone was inoperative.

    Filthy. Sheets were itchy. Fly trap hanging in room with dead bugs all over it. Live bugs also were in the room. Mold on ceiling. One of the towels had clearly visible mucous on it. Absolutely disgusting. Noise next to express way made it impossible to sleep.

    The room was not clean or comfy. We couldn't even stay the night because we were scared to sleep in the beds. One of the other guests complained of bed bugs. Bathrooms not clean. Several flys flying around in room.

    Mold in the bathroom above the shower. Stains on the bed comforter from something that I don't know if I want to know.

    Good

    Hop, skip, and jump away from Ohio State Fair! Bed was comfy. No light coming in from around doorway or window. This is remarkable, because this has been a "problem" at every other hotel I've stayed at this year, including at the more pricier hotels.

    Bathroom was kind of yucky (baseboards and shower walls in particular) and had a bad smell (like sweaty fat fair/festival person). Smallish room; rather tight quarters.

    The shower head options... seriously that's it.

    We reserved for a 5 night stay 2 months in advance. The fact that our first room didn't have working A.C. or the fridge and microwave we PAID for was frustrating but was a theme in our other rooms they reassigned us. The second room was still filthy from the previous occupant. The third room they gave us had a dirty thong from the previous occupant between the headboard and mattress. Also the shower looked like a coal miner took a shower in there. The 4th room was finally correct and in liveable conditions but smelled moldy so I just bought a candle and lived with it. Mind you the "manager" went and "checked" each room before coming back and giving us a key to the room. Thankfully we were not planning on spending much daytime here. This place is an absolute joke. The pool they advertise was not even filled up and working. The staff acts like it is your fault these things are going wrong and takes absolutely no responsibility. They also still enter your room with the do not disturb sign up.They also make you pay for the "free" bottles of water that were supposed to be in our room but where not and the vending machine eats your money and they refuse to pay it back. Oh and at night don't go out. You will meet people with names like "Pepper". If you catch my drift. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else and save yourself the 2 hour hassle of getting a room when you get there after your flights all day, even though you reserved 2 months in advance.I went down for the continental breakfast. Their "fresh squeezed orange juice" is Tang and their breakfast is white bread. Nothing else. While I was getting breakfast another kind woman was having the exact same issues and crappy attitude from the front desk I was. I said out loud she wasn't the only one. And two people behind her tapping their foot seemed to agree with me. Good luck! May the hotel room odds be ever in your favor.

    Beds were nice. Breakfast was acceptable. Very close to state fair.

    The hotel was selling parking spots for the state fair, which left few spots for actual guest. Had to kill 5 flies and a cricket upon entering room. Toilet cleanliness should have been better. Room was to be non smoking, but had an undertone of old cig smoke under a very bold air freshener. Stayed 2 nights and had to wash clean clothes when getting home. Smoke stayed in clothes.
