This is one of the best places in Columbus that I ever stayed. The employees were all pleasant and I will be staying there again. Thanks for the great hospitality. Clean rooms and great environment for the price! Near OSU campus for great sight seeing

Pro: - Cleaner than we thought Con: - Rude manager who dones't listen just want to charge you more - Old man showing his "private" part - Homeless people drinking at the back of the hotel Most horrible hotel experience We were there for 5 days, we had a connected room, on day 4 we went out from 7ish morning till 5ish evening, when we went back it just locked us out from the room because they smelled weed outside of our room and said gonna charge us USD 100 for it. We tried to explain we don'... Read more

I reserved a room during a big football game so it was $200 a night for this hotel. One king bed, a frig, microwave. It was clean. The view was a Bob Evans and a billboard for an adult store. This is not a fancy place. You can drive up to the window and check in. I like the check in idea but the staff was not very happy that day. She mumbled her requests to me and could not crack a smile if her life depended on it. Perhaps is was just a bad day for her. It happens. Its an ok stay for ... Read more

We chose to stay at The Varsity Inn because it was listed as an option for a conference we attended. Should have read the reviews first! Simply put, it just wasn't clean. The smell of pet odors including urine was strong in our room. The tile floors didn't look clean, especially around the edges and at the corners, so I don't even want to imagine what the carpeted areas really looked like. There were mystery stains on the bathroom wall and the wall by the sink--looked like they could have been c... Read more

Found someone else‚??s socks in my room and dirty tissues. One bed had hairs all in it, bedding definitely wasn‚??t changed. The peephole for the door had no glass in it and was just a giant hole which we noticed you can get an entire Ariel view of our room if looking in from outside. Then to top it off I left my face wash in my room it was brand new just got it that day and I called just a couple hours I left to ask to pick it up and the kid said ‚??well someone else is already staying in that ...

We stayed at this hotel for a softball tournament a couple of months ago. I reserved 3 or 4 rooms for the team. Upon arrival, the players staying in that room were supposed to figure out payment. When I got my credit card bill a month later, I noticed an additional charge for the hotel. Come to find out that even though they swiped the card of the person staying in the room and gave him a receipt, somehow they still charged the card that held the reservation (mine). Whenever I called the h... Read more

Despite the reviews we decided to book a night here for a wedding we had in town. This room was much better than what other guests had mentioned in their reviews. Don't get me wrong it's not a 5 star place, but its a good little hotel and its dog friendly!

We stayed at the Varsity Inn for just one night. We had picked this based on the location (as we were planning on staying near OSU) but also because it was one of the cheapest priced. I was not let down. We arrived to check in and I had not realised just how big the hotel was ‚?? with multiple buildings. When we checked in, we were given a room on the second floor and was happy with how clean it was. The room was large with two double beds and storage space. The bathroom was clean and stocked ...

I stayed at the varsity inn south on dec 22nd and i enjoyed my stay there. The king size room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The room also had a microwave and fridge. They had lemon scented lotion and soap which was very nice. They have a wendys and bob evans restaurant thats close walking distance and the staff was very friendly. Overall a good place to stay.

Checked in for a stay over a non-football weekend. I can honestly say this is the worst hotel stay I have had in quite some time. The A/C was very noisy, and switched on and off frequently. The bathroom door didn't close all the way, which in a room of this size (small) is problematic. There was mold around the sink and shower fixtures. And, in the walkways, piles of garbage were lying around. Photo evidence is attached. Besides the room being sub-standard even for a budget hotel, the hotel staf... Read more
