Pros: It was great except that the restaurant was closed :-( and the wine too expensive.
Pros: Location and convenience. Freindly helpful staff
Cons: Noisy a/c unit and fan on it not running low enough.
Pros: I love the room ambiance, with the Kenyon pictures. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was clean and updated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Right on Kenyon Campus so very accessible for anyone visiting campus. Walking distance to the bookstore , general store and the Deli. All around great place! Will definitely be back!
Cons: Not that this is a downfall at all, I love that it is small with only 2 floors, but for anyone not able to walk stairs there is no elevator and because it was the down season there was no one at the bar.
Pros: Property was “fine” meaning clean and as expected, however the women we believe was a desk manager was argumentative when first asked when restaurant opened (8:00am and both mine my sons phones showed 8:02am and she stated our phones were wrong), further when asked if the kitchen could make a “to go” breakfast sandwich for my son, the clerk (who was very nice) said “certainly”, this same woman came out from the back and firmly stated “no deviations from the menu!”. Avoiding a further argument, we left without eating. Next morning, the very nice desk clerk approached me to apologize, which I accepted but would add, management should inquire into this desk manager to address as otherwise this hotel is clean and what one might expect on a college campus stay.
Pros: Clean, staff friendly, bed comfortable
Pros: Great location for college visit
Cons: Difficult to find the entry to the parking lot.
Pros: So clean and quiet. Very nice place to relax. Patio was a great place to sit late at night and wind down. Located in such a beautiful area! Staff was very friendly...even though bar was closed, the receptionist still offered to serve us and they weren't put out when we couldn't get into our room - twist and push...duh!
Cons: No driving service available the night we stayed...one cabbie had been drinking and the other cabbie's number was no longer in service. Area too rural for a quick Lyft. But that was just fine...we designated a driver and still had a fantastic weekend!

Pros: View of parking lot. Nothing special. but nice hotel nonetheless.
Cons: Hard to find! Our GPS did not work, nor did Tmobile in immediate area, and we were in a thunderstorm; hence it was very stressful finding this hotel but once we got there it was worth it.o
Pros: The location was great and the staff was nice.
Cons: It didn’t tell us that the pool and hot tub were down when we booked the hotel and we would not have paid the price we did knowing that. Also we thought we were getting a room with one king bed and we got two beds separate
Pros: Nice helpful staff, Dawn was great!
Cons: Looks run down, outside is just over grown looks awful
Cons: We booked on the telephone because we did not realize til the last minute that we were going to need somewhere to stay. We were charged $200 for the room. I have AARP and AAA . Have in the past stayed in hotels at the last minute and have never had them refuse to use any of the methods I have for reduced prices. Sorry but I want be choosing your hotels anymore. He desk clerk was very stern. Thank you for letting me vent. Have a great day. Bonnie Doherty
Cons: Paint falling off the ceiling in the bathroom should have been attended to long before my arrival
Pros: The room was disgusting, the bbathroom was filty. The pool and exercise room where closed for renovationsIbwasnt notified at time of booking. It was a decent location but very overpriced
Cons: The facilities
Pros: The staff was very friendly!!
Cons: They never cleaned our room on the last night of our stay. I mentioned it to the desk person a man. He offered little help and our room never did get cleaned. Also the toilet was stopped up and after mentioning it, it got tended to but not fixed.
Pros: Hot coffee in the morning is good.
Cons: Its loud.
Pros: I have stayed in this hotel more than once so it is very familiar to me. It is located very close to the facility that we are visiting. The staff has always been very helpful. The renovation is nearly complete so it will only improve.
Cons: The tub shower fixture (tap) had an issue but we figured it out and went on to have a nice shower.
Pros: Staff was extremely nice.
Cons: Watched as the person before me got the same room as me for half the price. Because I used Booking.com I was not eligible. Bad business! The room was extremely dirty. Still had dirty towels and washcloths over the shower curtain. The pool was broken and not in service. Our beds were half made - sheets appeared to have been slept in before. I have never been more disappointed. I complained and the wanted to give me points to come back again— why would I want to come back?? No thanks! I called about dirty towels and even though the staff were very nice- they brought clean towels...hmmm I’m thinking some cleaning supplies and someone to clean the room would have been in order. As if all that wasn’t enough, a group of people were standing right outside the door smoking and drinking- basically a party. We had to trail our kid through that environment to get inside. I’m used to better from HI express.
Pros: It was very clean and modern!

Pros: They provided a very nice breakfast for the guests, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Pros: The fact that the motel offered a variety hot breakfast and from 6 - 10
Pros: Clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed my stay during the holidays visiting family.
Pros: The location was nice, near a quaint bike trail.
Cons: Apparently only one person works there. Our toilet was plugged when we got there and we called the front desk for maintenance to check it. We were asked to come to the front desk and pick up a plunger and do it ourselves as the clerk was the only person working that day.
Pros: The room had a bathtub that was clean.
Cons: The room was humid. The mattresses had top covers but not entire mattress covers which causes me to worry about bed bugs, cleanliness, etc. The lobby smelled of smoke even though advertised as a smoke free hotel. At check in, the lady told us we paid more for the room through booking.com than we would have by direct contact. This was very disappointing asi felt the room was way over priced.
Cons: Greeted at front desk by a gruff staff member who claimed I could have reserved at a significantly lower rate by booking directly and then proceeded to say I was committed at the price and couldn’t change the rate. Wasn’t impressed. The hotel needed remodeled. Claim smoke free but on the first floor i could smell smoke such as from cigarettes and pot. Breakfast wasn’t well attended, ran out of waffle mix, waffle iron spray, and milk.
Pros: The staff on all shifts were excellent. They were friendly an helpful. The breakfast was hot an fresh every morning, with a good variety. The rooms were clean an maintained well. Beds were comfortable.
Cons: There was nothing I did not like about the hotel.
Pros: Great breakfast - every day.
Cons: Far from public transportation
Pros: Clean, comfortable and met expectations.
Cons: I do not think this area/hotel justify the price. Considering it’s a college town they use surge pricing when an event is going on. For the price we laid, we could have stayed at a much nicer hotel in a much nicer area.
Pros: It was clean updated and the staff was friendly. The pool area was really nice.
Cons: The room rate was very high

Pros: Close to restaurants and shopping
Cons: Door slamming all night long
Pros: Nothing. It was nasty.
Cons: There were dead bugs everywhere. I don't believe they ever washed the walls. Handprints and spills everywhere. I knew it wouldn't be an amazing hotel since it's only 2.5 stars, but I expected something more than a room that resemble a truck stop motel.
Cons: Door wouldnt lock had to move rooms .room smelled bad . had to replace light bulb in bathroom my self because they didnt know when someone could
Cons: We were riding bikes north from Columbus and knew we would not make it to the Super 8 so we called for hours to try to cancel the reservation with no answer. Being on bikes there was no way to go on line to cancel. We later learned that this (no answering) has happened before and the desk simply does not answer. We were billed and when we called Super 8 later that night there was an answer and we were told that the desk had been covered all day. We probably can’t get any compensation or credit and will have to take a position to avoid all Super 8’s based on this one’s dismal performance.
Cons: Air conditioner didn't work and could get no help from front desk thought we got non smoking rooms and they where not go no help from front desk spent a lot of money and didn't even come close in the rooms we got
Cons: Smells of smoke , roach in sink
Pros: POOR so did not participate!
Cons: Not enough hot choices
Cons: They wouldn’t answer their phone for hours so we couldn’t change our reservation. So, we got charged. Extremely poor performance confirmed by others as typical of this Super 8.
Cons: The most expensive bad motel we have stayed in for the last five years. Water pressure low, plumbing from 1970, towels terrible, parking lot had maybe homeless there living in a van. On the business side they could not split a bill. In the last 10 years with 6 motels per year YES 60 motels this has never happened.
Cons: The pool could have been warmer
Pros: The bed was completely broken down where a person would lay. Took the covers off and the mattress was shot! Several stains on the carpet. We asked for non smoking and all the booked rooms around us were smoking. We could smell it in our room plain as day.
Cons: See above
Pros: The first non-smoking room they put me in smelled like an ashtray. The second room they put me in had blood on the door as you enter which they cleaned up then when I got in the room I found bloody bandages leftover food in the refrigerator used plastic utensils on the floor. The toilet was leaking. The fact that look like it had been sprayed down With some kind of black substance. The entire facility needs to be rehabilitated.
Cons: As stated above.
