its an older hotel but well cared for and kept up to date. Your basic room with micro/fridge. The beds were OK. A little firm for me but my bed at home is ridiculously soft so I think for most people they'd feel fine. There's shopping nearby and lots of choices for food. Almost right across the street from OSU Medical Center so it would be perfect for family visiting and needing a place to sleep. Will most likely be staying here again.

Pay a bit extra to stay elsewhere. Currently buying beer for my friends that have been inside for 2 hours because they don't have our room that we reserved over a month ago. Came here for event at nationwide and weren't able to check in earlier so our room vanished apparently. Stay downtown

I flew to Columbus to attend a three day event at Nationwide Arena. Upon checkout, Varsity Inn would not allow me to check baggage, no exceptions, and pretty rude about it too. Nationwide Arena does not allow any baggage at the Arena, so I could not attend the last day of the event. There is nowhere in Columbus to check baggage - no lockers at the bus terminal or anywhere else. Varsity Inn South ruined my stay.

I just stayed at this motel on Monday May 16, the front desk clerkwhen I checked in that evening was very friendly, she even gave me a king room instead of 2 double like was booked. I walked into my room and was very surprised it was amazingly clean, included a microwave, and fridge, coffeepot, and some wonderful smelling soap and toiletries. The only downfall was the ugly looking tub I'm assuming at one point this place was taken over and they did remodeling, and might not have it completed y... Read more

There is absolutely nothing that stands about this place, either good or bad. The "King Study" room was equipped with a coffee pot. The television, all lights and the shower worked, and this is actually a plus. We paid $77 (+17% total taxes) on a Friday night in early May 2016. There is a Bob Evans (Denny's type) restaurant virtually in the Varsity Inn parking lot and it opens quite early. The Grandview area of Columbus, with lots of great restaurants and a brew pub or three, is just west of... Read more

Not much to say, nor criticize. The beds are of good quality. The A/C was at full blast when we first entered what had become a fridge. Typical motel layout. Typical motel price. Coffee - fairly good - at the reception. Close to OSU.

We stayed here for a night we attended a concert, and we'd definitely stay again. Very clean, affordable rooms that have a microwave and fridge. Kind of a party atmosphere in the parking lots, but we were there to party. I will say the visitors weren't overly noisy or obnoxious-just relaxed environment. Only a mile from OSU stadium and within walking distance of restaurants.

Stayed here a few nights ago since it's so close to the OSU Hospital. Nothing like the pictures shows. We checked in our room around 9:30 pm. Rooms were a little out dated. And could use a good cleaning. Around 2:30 in the morning we were chased out of our room by BED BUGS!!! Went to front desk to show/ tell the lady working about our in encounter. She gave us another room since it was 2:30 am and we had to be at the hospital at 5:30. Our second room we found food from the previous people. And o... Read more

This was my 1st time staying in Columbus OH and I have to say when I called to see if they had a room I was devastated when he said yes but the check in time was not until 4pm. I had been up since 0300 and the flight had my head and ears hurting so bad it was killing me to drive. He must have heard the tiredness in my voice and told me to come on down and he will set me up in a room and not to worry. When I got here Craig was so nice and patient with me. The room wasn't expensive and I got a fri... Read more

Another football season still the same issues. We thought we would give this place a second chance mainly because of the location. The front desk staff was friendly but the bathroom was disgusting. We complained and were told nobody was available to clean the bathroom so we were issued a discounted rate. Rates are cheap but filth is not acceptable.

Had to go to Columbus for my dogs surgery and stayed at Varsity Inn South both times. Extremely satisfied with the front desk and the cleanliness of the room. The bed was very comfortable and we were able to get to sleep quickly since it was quiet. Definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive but very nice and clean place to stay. Thank you Robin for what you did for me. Greatly appreciated!!

Bedbugs! When I was leaving there was Orkin truck at a room a few doors down. Dirty bathroom and floors!Worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Here with my mom while receiving treatment at OSU! Very unclean and bathroom was full of dirt and mold! I would not recommend this hotel for a dog! Very noisy not only are people screaming outside your door at night but train tracks right next door!

Stayed this last fri nite and sat nite. Front desk check in was friendly, fast, and staff was very pleasant. We wound up changing the type of room with no difficulty, Thank You staff for that. Room was clean once we got it, however, sat clean up was not so good. Bed was kidda just thrown together, towels were just thrown on top shelf with some soiled mixed in with clean, also coffee was never refilled, other than that, it was o.k.

I selected this hotel because I am allergic to dust mite and the hotel bragged about availability of hypo-alergenic bed. I almost chocked when I enter the room they provided me; the previous guest was a smoker. I had to ask for another room. The second room they gave me was the dirtiest room I have ever seen. The hotel attendant was very nasty. I decided to stay for one night and look for another hotel in the morning. However, I was told to pay for the second night since a 24 hour notice... Read more

Stayed at varsity inn for a campus visit and a football game at Ohio State. Clean, comfy beds, and great location. About a 15-20 wall to the stadium. Bob Evans in the parking lot, Tim Hortons right next door, and Target was also a quick walk. Drive thru check in was nice

I am still staying this hotel. Today is my 29th consecutive day staying at this hotel. I booked the hotel from Japan from Oct 9 to Nov 8, 2016 for 2 persons. We have been told that we have no available room for two football weekend (Oct 28-29 & Nov 4-5). The other days they took our reservation at the cost of $66.98/day. When we came here we asked the front desk staff whether room is available for Oct 28-29. They said room is available. We asked for the rate and mentioned that we are staying for... Read more

I've stayed here several times during medical visits to Columbus. It is a very basic motel - no breakfast, and the outside pool has been closed during several of my summer visits - but the price is reasonable and Bob Evans and Tim Horton's are just steps away. I have only once had an issue with room maintenance and that was addressed. They have drive through check - in and make every effort to provide first floor rooms for those requesting them.
