I neee help from some experienced traveling Buckeye fans!

Discussion in 'Tickets and Travel' started by Hayley Leftwich, Sep 10, 2018.

  1. Hi guys! My fiancé and I are trying to come up to the October 6th game against IU (on my birthday!). We are from VA and have only attended one game and it was last season. I need help in 1. Finding a good hotel (under $150/night) and 2. Within walking distance from the stadium OR a hotel that provides a shuttle to the stadium. I’m having trouble finding something that’s not all booked up. Last year we stayed at Staybridge Suites on Olentangy. We loved it and it was a reasonable walk to the stadium and the hotel was amazing. This is the problem- everywhere is booked. We don’t have tickets yet either. Any place to get reasonable priced tickets other than Ticketmaster, etc.? Also anyone have knowledge or hotels with shuttle services to and from the stadium? I know minimal information and am also new to the forum so I honestly don’t know what I’m doing! Someone please help!!! TIA!

    Tight window. Varsity Inn north or south may be your best bet and neither are great but adequate.

    Where in Virginia? I live in NOVA and go up for most home games.

    Welcome to BP

    Best bet might be staying further out and taking an Uber/Lyft.

    Disclaimer: I have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Good luck :cheers:

    Also: You could look for hotels along (or close to) High Street between downtown and Worthington. The public bus (COTA) continually runs all up and down High Street. I'm not sure what the fare is; however, it can't be that much. You could easily ride the bus from anywhere on High Street between Worthington and downtown to Ohio State.
