Wife was in preterm labor at Riverside but not progressing so I needed a place to stay with my kids. Staff were kind, helpful, and place was really clean, updated. Breakfast for free was also fantastic. Highly recommended.

This hotel was just average...which isn't a bad thing. It's extremely close to the OSU campus and there's plenty to do nearby. This is one of the older style Holiday Inn Express that hasn't been renovated yet. It was clean just not very modern or exciting. The only minor issue I had was parking at night. I couldn't find a space so I had to park at the hotel next door. If I'm back in the area I'd probably try searching for a different hotel but wouldn't be opposed to staying here again if... Read more

After a 5 hour ride from a Chicago Suburb we got to our destination at 10:45 PM. The front clerk was very pleasant & check us in right away. The room was on the 6th floor ~ it was CLEAN and tidy. The room had two queen size beds, w/fridge and microwave (didn't use), Keurig mini coffee maker was used in the morning. We ate in their breakfast area, it was a nice size and quaint. The food was typical for any large chain, it won't win any culinary awards but it the did job of getting you on your ... Read more

A newer property (a few years) right on Olentangy River Road, where there are many hotels. Near OSU campus, athletic venues and OSU Med Center. Nothing fancy, but clean, quality and family friendly. Nice pool and hot tub, adequate but small gym. Free basic breakfast. Good free wifi, free parking. Book very early for football weekends, OSU move-in, graduation, etc.

Very nice motel. Friendly check in and helpful staff. Good hot breakfast. There were a lot of boys at the hotel for a tournament but the walls and hallways were so well constructed that I never heard a sound outside our room. I highly recommend this motel.

This was right off the highway, although the GPS sent me down a long scenic drive to get there. Easy to get to the convention center. A few good places to eat nearby. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Comfy and quiet. Had to dock one star as it it could use some updating - carpet was frayed and climate control was erratic. Also disappointed that they replaced towels on the rack; I like green.

I was so disappointed when we checked in. Very, very slow and unorganized. They gave me the key to someone else's room. That was not a good thing to walk in on someone. Then it took about 30 minutes for them to get me another room. The room was fine and the breakfast was good, but I was very irritated..

There are all types of Holiday Inns. This one's a good one. Newly remodeled rooms, everything works as advertised, including a great shower. And did I mention the breakfast? Outstanding. Nice, professional front desk staff. Would rebook when I return to Columbus.

I wanted a room with two queen beds. What I got for the same price was 2 rooms, one with a King bed and the other with a queen bed and a sofa bed and a kitchen. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. We were really pleased with this Holiday Inn. Breakfast was good with enough tables. Two very nice ladies were taking care of breakfast and we appreciated all their work in cleaning tables and making sure food was replenished. Parking was well lighted and there were enough spots. ...

The hotel provided shuttle or taxi service (if the shuttle was unavailable at the requested time) within a 2 mile radius of the hotel to campus during the conference week. This was convenient to still leave the hotel without having to pay Uber or Lyft. All the Uber and Lyft drivers missed the entrance to the hotel, so you may have to call the driver to explain OR wait a couple of extra minutes until they can navigate around to the front. The driveways to the hotel are not easy to find. Staff wa... Read more

I thought I will get a suite. As usual, when you buy it through priceline or Hotwire you dont get a good room. The room was ugly and smelled bad, I reported to the front office and nothing was done Cute swiming pool and jacuzzi, with tiny towels Breakfast with big assortment but very low quality. New for me: pancake machine, but they taste like plastic

I booked this hotel on Expedia for a short trip to see a soccer game at The Horseshoe. It's a standard Holiday Inn that was undergoing some work at the time. The room was clean. The staff friendly. My biggest issue here is the pool. My son and his friend wanted to swim. The minute we walked in my eyes were burning from the chlorine. I didn't swim, just the boys. My son ended up with an ear infection after being in the pool and water got in his ear. They need to have someone properly maintain the... Read more

We booked a room for an overnight stay for the state fair, and the hotel staff and amenities were wonderful! The bedding was comfortable, the breakfast was plentiful, and the general manager got us some perks for the fair as well. This hotel was clean, put together, and overall impressive. Good job Holiday Inn!

Stayed here while at the State Fair. Located just north of OSU. Very clean with new updates still in progress. Room was nice & was one that had been updated. Nice tub/shower, Fridge & coffee machine. Super nice towels & comfy bed. Price about right. AC unit pretty noisy. Breakfast was very average & never changes but you can find something. The girls overseeing the breakfast are fantastic & don't have much to work with as far a quality. Only a couple places to eat close (Bob Evans, Roosters & gr... Read more

Renovations going. Full price should not be charged when place is smelly and messy. Place not very well run. Trash cans were all overflowing. Smoking was allowed and encouraged by placement of butt receptacle just outside front door. Very unpleasant entering and exiting. Not up to HI Express standards. I'm a long time high points rewards member. I paid cash for this visit and I'm very disappointed and would suggest you not stay here. HI needs to tighten up standards and inspect this property. No...

This was our second visit in about a month. We really appreciate the cleanliness of this hotel. It is under some renovations but that didn't get in our way at all. We appreciate that they are upgrading. The room was very comfortable. We especially enjoy the "in the room" jacuzzi. Has the amenities we want. Fridge and microwave in room. A/C was comfortable. We enjoy the breakfast, especially those sinful cinnamon rolls! Breakfast also includes eggs, do-it-yourself pancakes, cereals, yog... Read more

We checked in for a night, and as we arrived on the top floor we noticed the smell of paint and obvious renovation going on. (There was a sign in the lobby warning us.) I did wonder about if the smell would be noticed in the room. Oddly, when we walked into the room there was no paint smell ... but there was another type of smell that was annoying. I called the front desk, and they gave me a room immediately. In fact, they gave me two adjoining rooms on the floor below - more than I needed, to b... Read more

I've stayed at this hotel many times while I'm recruiting at Ohio State. When I went to leave the hotel for my trip home this week, the battery in my rental car was dead. The gentleman at the front desk took my car keys and jumped by car. He then pulled the car around and loaded my bag for me. Totally above an beyond! Thank you for the great servicre!!!!

Everyone is really nice and helpful. We called ahead and asked for extra blankets and towels to be in our room upon arrival .. Done! At midnight asked front desk where to buy bottled water.., they gave me a few, no charge! At breakfast, an employee( Candy) asked how we were doing( a few times) and asked if we needed anything.. This is a self serve breakfast. She came back and cleared our trash while we were still there! We don't get that at regular restaurants. It's good to be back In the Midwes... Read more

We have stayed at this property on previous visits to Columbus. We participate in the Annual All American Quarter Horse Congress, each October. We return because everything is always, just as it should be. Breakfast is good, nice variety. The room is nice and clean. Check in is smooth. Nice little pool and hot tub. WiFi, microwave, coffee in the room. Not sure what else to say, we will stay again next year.

I would have given this hotel 5 stars except the front desk couldn't get my request for 2 rooms in the back of the hotel away from the busy street in front... Also no eggs at breakfast, girl had them cooking but I couldn't wait any longer. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Biggest reason for only 3 stars was the lack of AC plugins by the bed and even on the desk. Come on, this is 2016, replace the lamps with ones that have plugins. Everybody wants their phone charging bedside rather than acr... Read more

The worst. I've stayed in Holiday Inn Express locations across the country, and used to believe this was a reliable brand. I have now learned otherwise. I would avoid this location at all costs, especially if you're staying more than one night. My room went days without housekeeping service, and it was almost impossible to even get basic necessities like bath tissue - seriously, you should bring your own, as well as Kleenex, if you're going to be there for any length of time. Also, heads up... Read more

I needed to find a room late last Sunday due to a relative being hospitalized nearby. This is one of the closest hotels to Riverside Methodist Hospital. The lady who made my reservation and checked me in was very considerate of my circumstances. The lobby area look great. Due to the nature of my stay, I didn't use the pool or workout room. Except for running out of orange juice, the breakfast was excellent with several healthy choices offered. The only suggestion I would make is the addition o... Read more

This hotel has "lost" our reservations or scheduled our reservations on the wrong days 3 times! This last time I called to verify my Thanksgiving reservations and was told by the reservation department that the hotel had been sold and that my reservation had not transferred. I then spoke to the customer service department and they verified that my reservations did not exist but they said that the hotel was not bought out by another company but simply closed that week.
