Some pros and cons with this place. It's and older building with smallish rooms. The biggest downside is the lack of an elevator when you have to drag a suitcase to the top floor. That being said, I would definitely stay again if I were attending an event at the Coliseum, I'll bet we were relaxing in our room before many of the cars had even left the parking lot. It's also convenient to restaurants and shopping.

Room Tip: I'd ask for a lower floor if possible to avoid the walk up with luggage.

If you want a clean cheaper hotel that's close to Malls & restaurents - this one could suit your needs. Many famous restaurants surrounding this hotel for food - so good place for 2 or 3 days. Hotel is located behind famous Bob Evans Restaurent. It's a plus. It is recommmended for family as well as business visitors. The hotel staff is also friendly and always willing to help us when needed. Great service. Thank you for making our stay pleasant. Highly recommended.

The room had a musty smell to it. When I opened the refrigerator it had a bag of smelly Wendy's in it. It was not plugged in so it was nasty. I told the desk clerk and she offered me another room but, it did not have a refrigerator so we stayed in our same room. When I called this hotel to book they said all rooms had a refrigerator, that was obviously not true.

There were stains on the sheets and cloth seats. The room smelled like an outhouse, the ac was broken, everything was grimy or broken, and the door to the room wouldn’t shut unless I leaned against it. Service was awful.

Although it's a bit hidden and hard to find I loved convenience of the location! It is right next to the mall and other shopping plazas and many restaurants. The kind ladies that work the front desk were very accommodating. They were lovely to be around and made my family feel very welcomed. My stay was very quiet and I had the best hotel coffee I've ever had when I woke up lol very strong! I would recommend this place definitely get your money's worth!

I hate that I waited so long to review this place. Had to use it for a trip to see my step-son play soccer. It was the cheapest and closest to our destination. Saw the mixed reviews but decided to give it a shot. Oh boy where to start..... Walls looked like they were from a daycare because of how dirty they were and the smell in the hallway was not too pleasant. Our sheets had ciggarette holes. Our bathroom was awful. My fiance had a hard time shaving because the lighting was so bad. Oh did I mention the walls were dirty in the washroom too. Our shower curtain did not close properly and was being held shut to the wall by push pins...yes push pins.(and have pictures to prove it and will post.) The tub backed up so bad that we had to wait 15 minutes before the next person could shower. I sent HJ a email and surprise surprise no response nor an apology for the conditions of the hotel. Never again will I stay at this place!!!

this hotel is a little difficult to find, but calling in advance for directions,or google map,makes it easy. it is not located near the Interstate as most hotels are, but well worth the 10 minute extra drive if you are looking to save, and for a clean place. Nothing extravagant, but clean, quiet. comfortable and close to a small mall, and a few restaurants.

the staff "Gabby" was very courteous, and conscientious, and check in was smooth.

the small breakfast included was not elaborate but sufficient to start the day----pastries,juice,fresh fruit, and cereal.

I stayed here for two nights. Check-in was fine, although I had to wait on the front desk supervisor to get back from wherever they were...

The first night was alright, I expected a cheap room and got a cheap room. Bathroom wasn't very clean and the breakfast was subpar.

Although the second night I woke up with bites ALL over my body from bed bugs. Save your skin and don't stay here!!!!
