In town for one night for a funeral, found a good price with this hotel. We were greeted and checked in by a very nice woman who gave us a floor choice as it was a Sunday night and not very busy, offered cookies and coffee and answered all our questions. We chose the first floor near the pool. Room... More

We stayed here on business my husband and I. Good breakfast, nice comfortable bed and room. Clean is the main thing. I like the late check out too bc I needed to stay behind while he went to a meeting.

Cheapest hotel in the area and you get what you pay for. Stained carpet all over the hotel, including rooms. Lights in hallways and rooms are dim, preventing you from seeing filth. First room, dirty bathroom, changed rooms. Second room, old tennis shoe sticking out from under a chair, a cookie and candy on the floor. Oh, and old napkins... More

We were in town for the Ohio Senior Games and stayed for one night. The room was clean and the staff was friendly - those are probably the two most important things for us. It's always nice to have breakfast included and this one didn't disappoint. This hotel is not far from Polaris Fashion Place with lots of restaurants and... More

Friendly staff; nice sized, clean room; wonderful spa and pool and probably the best included breakfast from any hotel we've stayed at. Location is great with easy access to Polaris and I-71. Price as about two-thirds that of the surrounding competition.

Hotels have sprung up practically like dandelions around Polaris so that you can chhose among Residence Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden, Candlewood, Extended Stay America, Fairfield, Hampton, and likely others. There is a lot of similarity among these hotels, which are a good choice if you are north of Columbus. This one is comfortable and competently run. WiFi is included in... More

I've stayed in dozens of hotels and quite a few Comfort Inn. This is by far the nicest Comfort Inn ever! It's quiet, rooms are spacious and have all the amenities, and in a great location. You're right across from the mall and highway but it's truly a very quiet hotel. I don't have anything negative to say about this... More
