This is a gay hookup place

Feb 21st, 2021

This is not a hotel. This is a spot used by hundreds of local gays to have sex in the rooms and the parking lot. This is located by a place called Club Columbus, which is a gay sex hookup spot in disguise as a "gym". Those of you leaving bad reviews because the rooms are dirty, or you hear knocking all night, or a lot of men headed to one room...that is not drug deals and protitutes, that is the type of decay that happens when local gay men choose a place for all of their activities to take place. Hundreds of guys show up each night to have sex with each other in the rooms and parking lot. The staff can't possibly control it at this point. The cops don't care when they're battling gay public hookups at the local parks (yeah where kids play and stuff, those have become other hookup places). Just avoid this hotel. It is not for normal people. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Surprised police can't notice the activity

Jul 1st, 2020

Picked this place close to hospital, so I could see my daughter. Stayed a week. Clean during the day looks descent enough. At night people knocking on couple neighbors doors all night long. Syringes & bent spoons in parking lot. Cars playing loud music hanging out. Ask to be changed to other building, clerk gladly did it. This building even worse. Obvious drug deals & hookers. 2 rooms women had men in & out and others waiting in cars to come in. Not to mention fire alarm going off for over an hour after midnight. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I have stayed here several times, along with several other fellow employees when we have meetings in Columbus. We have had several issues, but nothing serious, so we never complained. And to be honest, we always came back because the front office staff was always so polite and friendly. However, before leaving for my most recent trip I woke up feeling "ill". With the current pandemic / virus situation, I thought it best to cancel my reservation. The general manager refused to offer me a refund, or even some kind of credit towards my next stay. Needless to say, my fellow co-workers and myself will no longer be booking rooms at the Varsity Inn. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We were given a room in the second building and the room was dirty. It had not been cleaned so we were given a new room which was even worse, room had live and dead bugs and stuff on floor. Normally stay in Red Roof, but was trying something off Olentangy. Never again!! The front desk guy was nice though but rooms are nasty and not cleaned. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great location

Apr 13th, 2020

Location is great, close to OSU and an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. The staff was very nice and very helpful. The room was very clean. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave and a coffee maker. I would definitely stay here again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
