2018 Ohio State Football Guestroom Lottery

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF RESERVATION REQUESTS FOR OHIO STATE HOME FOOTBALL GAME WEEKENDS, THE BLACKWELL INN WILL HOLD A LOTTERY FOR OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATIONS. 

SIMPLY COMPLETE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION BY July 20, 2018 AT 11:59PM TO ENTER INTO THE LOTTERY. 

POLICIES FOR FOOTBALL WEEKENDS:

The 2018 OSU Football Home Game weekend rate is $319 per evening for all games, except Nebraska and Michigan, where the rate is $349 per evening.  Rates exclude taxes and valet parking.   Please note, only rooms with one king bed are available (rooms with two queen beds are not available at this time).  A limited amount of suites are available and start at $369 per evening, plus taxes and valet parking. 

  • All reservations require a two night minimum stay of Friday and Saturday evenings. 
  • An advanced deposit of two night's room and tax is required at the time of the reservation.  
  • Reservations are non-refundable at the time of the reservation.  The reservation is transferable, with proper notification to and approval from the hotel, however it is non-refundable. 
  • Early departures are non-refundable and will be subject to forfeiture of remaining deposit.

All lottery requests submitted by July 20, 2018 at 11:59pm will have equal access for selection.  Only requests received outside of these dates will NOT be included in the initial lottery and will be placed on our waitlist.  Any duplicate entries will be removed.   Guests calling in for reservations will be asked to complete the online form to ensure fairness and consistency in the process.  There is no advantage to early registration as all names are entered into a random lottery for the reservation selection. 

On Monday, July 23, 2018, names will be randomly selected from the lottery registration for reservations.  Those guest names selected can expect to receive a call from our reservations department starting Tuesday, July 24, 2018 to confirm their reservation.  If an individual does not answer, we will leave a voice message and the guest will have 24 hours to return our call to confirm their reservation.  After that time, the request will go on our waitlist and we will move forward with the next guest.  All calls will be made no later than Friday, August 3, 2018. 

Some weekends may have Saturday night only available.  If offered, please note, all reservations for Saturday night only will require guests to check-in AFTER the Ohio State football game is over.  We suggest that guests arrive at the Blackwell four (4) hours prior to kick-off.  Our valet team will valet park your vehicle with the hotel and store luggage with our bell staff.  Guests will need to return to the hotel after the game to check-in.  No rooms will be available for check-in on Saturdays prior to the game.  Please note that check-in (after the game) policy remains in effect for ALL games including night games.      

Please contact the hotel with any additional questions.  Go Bucks!
