We stayed with family for one night. The in-room bathroom wallpaper is dated, but overall the rooms are nice and clean. Staff was friendly. We had the indoor pool to ourselves for a bit, so that was nice. Hot breakfast in the morning. Located near lots of shopping and dining. It's a little confusing how to get to the hotel off the main road.

Overnighted after a graduation ceremony at the Quest Conference Center next door. Clean and comfortable bed, the TV could have been larger for the size of the room, and the bathroom was spacious. Breakfast was good, but the eggs are surely powdered, and had a sulfur-like taste to them. Staff was all very pleasant, from the front desk to the cleaning crew. We would stay again.

The hotel value for price wasn't good. The breakfast was subpar. The service wasn't particularly bad, but it wasn't anything that I was impressed by. I made one request to the front desk that was never completed.

We stayed at this hotel Memorial Day weekend 2016. We had a large group of about 50 people. Mostly teenage girls! The hotel staff was very accomodating and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Beds are extremely comfortable. Very nice selection for the complementary breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel!!!!

We had a very good experience at the Hampton Inn & Suites. The location is very convenient for our extended family gatherings. We had a king room which was very large and spacious. We requested a crib in one of the rooms for a baby in our party, and it was set up before the family arrived. The breakfast was good, not fantastic, but certainly adequate. Our second day was a holiday which may explain the slight delay experienced in replenishing some of the food items in the buffet. Overall, i... Read more

We stayed on a Saturday night on Memorial day weekend. Very nice hotel, AC worked well (which is a huge deal to me!). Bathroom was huge. My one complaint...the sheets on our king size bed wouldn't stay tucked in! It came off the mattress several times during the evening and night and we do not move around much in our sleep.

In town for a graduation and this hotel meet our needs perfectly. It was spacious and very clean. The only down side is getting to the hotel seems to be a little tricky. There's no direct route off any main roads. We had to run out for something we forgot (and the hotel didn't have) amd we had to make a bunch of random turns to get back to the driveway to the hotel. It's a clean, quiet place to sleep if that's what you're looking for!

This was a really nice stay. Really nice hotel and best price in the area when I compared it to others around it.

We hadn't planned on stopping at this location but ended up here by accident. We usually stay at Hampton Inns and this one was great. Staff was friendly and responsive to our needs.

Comfortable, spacious room; great warm breakfast; friendly staff; good location to restaurants and Kroger grocery store; easy to use and free internet; near the interstate highway. I've stayed at this hotel several times while traveling through Ohio. A little more expensive than comparable hotels, probably due to location on north side of Columbus.

This is a nice, clean hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and well cared for. However, the pool is unsafe and should be avoided. We watched no less than 5 people fall in less than an hour while simply walking on the pool deck due to standing water and slick tile. A member of our party was one of the individuals that fell and required 10 stitches to repair a split lip. The hotel staff indicated they knew flooring was a problem in there which was upsetting.

I stayed here for one night with my daughter as we were traveling to New England. Check in was a breeze and the room was very nice. Exceedingly clean and updated, the hotel exceeded my expectation. Breakfast in the morning was fine. The one less than stellar thing I will note is the the breakfast attendant did not refill the empty egg warmer while we were there and several other items were also empty. A little management oversight would quickly correct this challenge. In spite of this mino... Read more

Went for an overnight trip and to go to the zoo. After calling the 800 number, we (2 of us) were told we had a room at this hotel. We were in the parking lot when we did this. We went to the desk and we were not impressed. The lady at the desk didn't believe us when we said we booked a room, until I showed her my email then she wasn't very knowledgeable of the rooms and just had no manners. We checked in at 4 pm and then we were told we had to wait on our room. This lady couldn't tell us a ... Read more

From the moment that we checked in at 11:30 p.m. as was greeted by a very welcoming associate who seemed genuine in her smile and kind enough to to offer us bottled water I felt like this wasn't the normal greeting I usually get at hotels. This hotel seemed brand new in both the exterior and interior. The room was very well appointed and the bed and pillows were by far the best I have slept on in a similarly priced hotel. I really wanted to permanently borrow a pillow.

This is a perfectly acceptable Hampton Inn. It sits in a strange location in the Polaris area of Columbus. There are very limited dining options reachable without getting in your car and traffic in the area is horrible. A drive across the expressway to the mall can take upwards of thirty minutes depending on the time of day. The property itself is average for a Hampton. My room was getting dated, but the bed was comfy and the water pressure was great.
