          Everyone was so helpful, nice & considerate. Will definitely be back again. Our stay during this uncomfortable time was most pleasurable. Was very convenient for us to get to all his appointments, due to the location. Everything was in a 5 mile radius including dining.

          Stayed while visiting daughter at The Ohio State. Will be returning for a stay during her graduation. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable room. Good price. Nice gym, and friendly, living room-like bar to have a drink with companions or other guests.
