I may be visiting Columbus for a seasonal job. Anybody know a cheap but decent weekly rate motel?

I would prefer that the motel to be either on or near a bus line.

Columbus is not a great city for motels, unfortunately. Downtown has some pretty nice hotels but they aren't cheap (well, they are compared to larger city's hotels, but not what you are looking for probably). And the ones that are cheap and on a bus line, you probably would want to stay away from unless you don't mind leaving with bites, a mysterious rash, your wallet missing, or all 3. The suburbs have some fairly nice accommodations and may be what you are looking for (Extended stay, Inntown, etc), but are not really near bus stops and are more in the burbs.

Best bet is to look in the 'burbs at an extended stay place and see how close you are to a bus line and whether that bus line will take you where you want to go. COTA does a great job taking people downtown or to the OSU area, but it's spotty outside of that.

Thanks to both of you. Looks like I'll have to apply for the same job in a different city.

Check out Extended stay on Sawmill. It is near the busline and about 219 a week.

Try Cleveland, Ohio they have the best Transit System in Ohio -- Both Bus and Rail rapid transit and Motels can be find easily within the city limits....Finding motels in Columbus can be hard and becomes a bigger challenge when trying to find a cheap motel along the bus line....

Thanks. The seasonal job I was thinking about has offices in both Columbus and Cleveland.

All things being the same, I would have preferred Columbus, but poor public transportation is a deal breaker.

Columbus has a lot of middle of the road hotels and some very seedy, bad ones. Not a lot in the way of "cheap but nice" and not a lot in the high end (so called "4 star hotels", but that may be changing I think one is opening near downtown this or next year). As far as public transit, Cleveland is light years better than Columbus, Cincinnati, or any other city in Ohio really.
