We had a wonderful stay, other than the smoke alarm malfunctioning at 1:30 in the morning. But they got it stopped, and we all resumed our sleeping. Had a wonderful breakfast both days. Would definitely stay there again. It is so close to everything. Could walk to all the shops.

My wife and I had been to Berlin, Ohio at least 20 times. We took the family this time so we stayed at Lodging on the Square. It was a very pleasant experience. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was great!

Been visiting Berlin for years and this is my favorite hotel. It is centrally located, very clean, updated, and friendly staff. The free breakfast is very good with scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, waffles, bagels and more.

The hotel was situated right in the middle of downtown Berlin....very convenient to a lot of shops. It was very quaint and clean however the shower was very difficult to operate. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good but very limited in selection.
