Not one thing to complain about. Everything and one was great.
Celina, us2 night family trip
Very good 8,0
Excellent service. Clean room. Some minor issues.
Service was friendly and excellent. Drive-thru check-in and check-out were fast, convenient and easy. Bed was comfortable. The room was very clean but a little stale smell as it had not been used in awhile. The remote for the TV needed a fresh battery. But that was quickly fixed. During the night, the HVAC unit shut off for a bit. But, I switched to fan mode for a bit and it was comfortable enough for the rest of the night.

A Comforting Place to Stay
My husband has begun going to the James Cancer Treatment Center for Treatments. The Varsity Inn was an excellent choice for us. The bed was so comfortable. They have all of the amenities...ironing board and iron, hair dryer, coffee and coffee pot, microwave, and refrigerator. tissues, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. There is a large television with a remote, a desk, king size bed, chair, and hangers to hang clothes. We loved the walk in shower and large sink and mirror on the outside of the bathroom. Another good thing is that Bob Evans is right next door. Wendy's is next to it. We could just walk to the restaurants.
