Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa5401 Excellent breakfast
The breakfast alone is worth the "upgrade" from other hotels/motels and their idea of a continental breakfast. A variety of options including hot items such as eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits and fresh from the oven cinnamon rolls. Fresh fruit, yogurt and 4 different juice options. Very nice rooms, high quality linens and comfortable beds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyMom2 Welcoming Hotel Close to OSU
During our stay we were welcomed by the hotel staff, and we were offered immediate suggestions of area dining and activities. Our room was very neat and clean with plenty of room for my family. Breakfast had many options with something for everyone. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay, and we will definitely stay here again when returning to OSU!

I stay in hotels almost every week, and they were wonderful here. The room was quiet, and I was able to get good sleep each night. I was not, however, greeted as a Gold Member when I arrived. I had to request to get my extra points.

The hotel was very clean and in a great area, right near OSU. We had issues with the air conditioner never shutting off and it ran loudly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pixchick64 misleading
Whereas the facitlity itself is clean, modern, and even with an indoor pool there was no smell of chlorine....other factors overweigh why I won't stay at this hotel again.
We were in town for my dad to have brain surgery at OSU Wexner Medical Center. We found this hotel on a list of places to stay at the hospital. The selling point was shuttle service to and from the hospital. I needed to have a way for my mother to not have to worry about driving and parking when I had to return to Lima on Monday.
When we checked in on Friday, we were informed that the shuttle service only runs Mon thru Thurs. The desk clerk tried to put it on us for it being not available--that we should have looked into that closer to make sure of its availablity. ( Sorry...but if you're listed on a paper at the hospital offering shuttle service and the hospital is open 7 days a week, then it should be a given that the shuttle runs 7 days a week too.) We also conveyed we may need another night or two beyond our reservation. We were told no problem-just let them know. When we let the desk know we would need 1-2 more nights, we were told it wasn't available-everything was booked up-that whoever said it'd be no problem spoke out of turn. To say the least, this stressed out my mother even moreso. As she packed her stuff to leave, figuring she'd have to stay in the hospital room with my dad, amazingly all of a sudden 3 more nites were available afterall. That tells me they were available all the while. Not impressed....won't do business at that facility again......

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovey5 Good value for family
We selected this location because of the large junior suite that could accommodate a family of 5 and the proximity to OSU. The rooms were large and the staff accommodating when we asked for additional towels. The kids enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was enough to satisfy us until lunch. Enjoyed our stay and when in the area again would stay here.

This is a very nice hotel and I would recommend them to others. Check-in was swift but I was offered no help with my bags even though I was alone and holding a 6-month old baby in my arms. The room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was a plus.

Came from a horrible experience at a place across the street and the Holiday Inn Express was our savior! They were helpful, attentive and pleasant. The rooms and the common areas were clean and up to date. Breakfast was great with lots of choices! Great plus to have a pool and hot tub as well as fitness room! I highly recommend this property!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hamptongal Clean and Quiet
The room was clean and quiet. Wireless was not a good connection, TV did not work, when I ask for a room on the first floor or at least close to the elevator, I was told all the guests would need to be move if I I were to be given my request. It was a mid week visit, the parking lot was far from and full, I arrived at 4:00 pm and my request could not be accommodated I guess after putting in along day, I was impatient, but other hotel chains go out of their way to meet requests.

Pleasantly surprised! Our experience was more than we could have hoped for. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the establishment, the room was updated nicely, and the breakfast was as good as any restaurant; more than enough nutritious food to feed even a hungry male. My daughter was delighted with the "pancake maker" and can't wait to get back for more. The staff was very helpful and kind. We already booked a room for mid July. Keep up the good work!

THE HOTEL IS A NICE HOTEL OVER ALL, THEY HAVE A POLICY THE WOULD'T WORK FOR MOST PEOPLE. IF YOU MAKE A RVS AND NEED TO CHANGE IT YOU BETTER NOT MAKE IT THE SAME DAY THAT YOU PLAN TO STAY, REGARDLESS TO WHAT COMES UP YOU WILL STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE ROOM

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lizzy4568 Comfortable and nice
Great front desk personnel, comfortable and clean room. Breakfast wasn't outstanding, but the fact that there is free breakfast is fantastic and you can definitely find something to fit your needs. Only issue was a fridge in the room that did not work. This was not a huge inconvenience. Overall nice hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nonna4565 Very satisfied
Spent five nights in the last month at this hotel while my husband was a patient at the nearby hospital. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful, rooms are wonderfully clean, breakfast was the usual continental but very good, and its located in an area thats convenient and away from the city traffic. Close to grocery store, restaurants, gas, etc.
The best thing of all is that they offer a hospital discount. Big help when you find yourself far from home and dealing with unexpected expenses.
I'll definitely stay here again if I'm in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by demback Awesome Property
We went to the Columbus Zoo on Memorial Day Weekend, not anticipating a need for a hotel reservation one was not made. Six hours into our zoo fun we figured out we needed to return the next day to continue seeing everything. At 7pm on a Saturday Memorial Day weekend I just knew we were going to be out of luck. When I called there was the holiday Inn but it was 15-20 minutes away from the zoo, although I was apprehensive I am SO glad we chose to stay. It was a awesome property. Very welcoming, personable and clean. The staff were attentive to our needs especially Michael at the front desk. When we return we will definitely will stay at this property again.

Holiday Inn Express is a very consistent brand across the nation so we were not surprised that it was a clean well maintained and comfortable hotel. We had a particularly good experience here because of the very helpful man at the front desk. We stranded in Columbus with a broken car and he went out of his way to let us checkin early and leave late so that we were not 'out on the streets' while our car was being fixed.

This family completely enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn, Olentangy Road, Columbus. We had three rooms and the experience was all the same - excellent! From entering the pristine lobby, greeted by a respectful hotel rep, to the clean, inviting accommodations...all efforts were appreciated. The morning meal was plentiful and the waite staff attentive. Thank you for making our happy family occasion extra special.
