Comfort Inn Splash Harbor in Bellville, Ohio

From the outside the Comfort Inn of Bellville looks like a conventional hotel, but it is far from that.  It is home to Splash  Harbor.  Open the doors of Comfort Inn and you will not just find everyday things going on.  This place is a great place for families to stay when visiting Ohio or...

Smokehouse Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio
