Booked a quick visit to Ohio to see friends for a long weekend and from the description on the Expedia site this seemed like a decent place for the $46 nightly rate. If I could do it again, I would never stay here. Check in was ok and then everything went downhill. I forgot shampoo at home and thought there...

We have been going here for almost 4 years, and this past visit was the worst, the bathroom was nasty with feces on the toilet. Also there was ashes and half a blunt on the floor by the bed...we were not pleased at all and they refused a refund, called corporate and it's a franchise so had to call the...

Gave this place a chance despite bad reviews. Should have listened to reviews. There are signs in the lobby that ALL guests must show ID (could be after the room has been paid for). Lobby door has sign stating lobby will be locked at dusk - room key required to enter. See other review of what can happen if you...

I rented a room here for a week for me and my girlfriend, but then had to leave early for work. Before I left, I made sure her name was on the reservation by checking at the front desk. I watched the clerk write her name on the paperwork. Well, the day before checkout, they told my girlfriend that she...

Wow, not given the right room when we arrived after our internet booking (wanted 2 beds) and received a king bed with a couch instead. Was told the place was sold out so could not get the room we ordered. So with no choice one of us had to sleep on the couch. Because I booked I felt bad and...

If you plan on staying in Columbus Ohio, there's no better hotel! The rates are very affordable, the rooms are very clean and the staff is extremely friendly! Dollar for dollar, you can't beat it! I won't stay anywhere else!

This is a Motel6, so it is not the Four Seasons. if you expect a 3 or 4 star hotel, you are not paying attention to the star ratings. This property is a former Baymont Inn, so the rooms are spacious. The hotel staff is very friendly, as well as the housekeepers. It is the best Motel6 i have stayed...
