"Close to all OSU facilities"
Slept well. Loved that my dog could stay with us. Maintenance man and front desk never told us no to any requests. We were very well taken care of!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I checked in at 3 am on a Saturday.The front desk clerk was extremely welcoming and alert, She walked me to my room and asked if I needed anything else.When going up to my room the carpet in the elevator had been ripped out, She apologized to me for it and told me she would have it fixed within the hour, I informed her […] their was nothing to apologize for, about an hour or two later when I was settled in I realized I forgot a toothbrush so I walked to the front desk, Low and behold their was NEW carpet in the elevator. I will be back to this Hotel FOR SURE!!! Cheap rooms and 5 Star customer service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick trip to Cbus"
Just did a two night trip to Columbus looking for a place to live for an upcoming move. Looking in the Short North, and this hotel was less than a 5 minute drive. Parking in the shono is crazy, but a cab was cheap. Clean room. Friendly front desk people. A few restaurants and a Kroger right across the street. I'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tips to make it better"
I felt as though the room amenities could have been better such as a small refrigerator---hairdryer--iron and ironing board. The room was clean and the staff exceptional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too bad for the price!"
It wasn't a bad hotel. The rooms were pretty clean. There was a weird smell, but nothing too bad. It's extremely close to the arena which made getting there easier. I went to the Nationwide Arena and got there in less then twenty minutes (Traffic to the concert was CRAZY, obviously.) The staff helped me with the directions too. The only down fall about […] this hotel is that it doesn't have a refrigerator or a microwave. I had bought some stuff at Polaris that needed to be kept cold, and I couldn't do that. I went and got ice to try to keep it cold. Also, I had some food that needed to be warmed up, but there wasn't a microwave. If you bring food and drinks down there with you, make sure they aren't anything that needs to be kept cold or needs heating up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location close to Ohio state and dining"
Overall it was pretty good. Location was ideal. could walk to Applebees, Canes or McDonalds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Red Roof OSU"
For a $75 per night room, I can't complain. Affordable, great location, close to restaurants. Room was outdated, but clean, plenty of hot water and towels. Beds were fine, not luxury, but good enough for price and location. For what we paid its worth 4 starsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean, staff was friendly. Nothing fancy but the location is convenient and walking distance to many places. Met my needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Easy check in and check out. No ice or vending machines around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Red Roof Inn"
Very comfortable and hospitable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First time staying at this hotel and I was quite pleased. It was very close to the location I was going to and plenty of restaurants close by. Check in and check out was a breeze and that in part is due to Hotels.com...always makes it easier. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not bad for the price"
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. The room was clean. Could use some updating. The fridge and microwave were a oleasant surprise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good; no complaintsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"poor quality for the price"
The quality of this hotel is extremely poor for the price I paid. Any other hotel with this quality in this area would have cost about one fourth of what I paid. One of the hotel staff at the check in counter was a bit rude during check in. I was highly unsatisfied and would never recommend this dump to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sucky and incompetent front desk staff!"
Definitely this Red Roof was very disappointing since I've stay at many in the past. The front desk staff were very incompetent with directions and what's around the hotel. Front desk did not take a credit card when I checked in so when I wanted to order a movie I had to walk all the way to the front desk. The room was missing many basic amenities and […] when I called front desk, again, I was told to walk over to the front desk. Not to mention my key card kept deactivating and I was to blame since it was near my cell phone. Front desk definitely knew I had a cell phone in my room charging so how in the hell did my cell phone cause the card to deactivate on multiple occasions? This is not a place I would recommend to anyone! Worst experience ever! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were in town for the Brantley Gilbert concert and stayed at the Red Roof Inn..It was a perfect location to the Schott..The lady at the front desk was very polite. I think pretty much everyone stayin there was goin to the concert so it was a little loud and crazy but aslong as u were there for the same reason it was fine. This hotel is a perfect location […] for any Ohio State sporting event...I'm sure it sells out fast... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to university"
The hotel was nice enough. There were cigarette burns on the comforter, though. The hotel is very close to the University which was the reason that we were staying in Columbus. There was nothing "wow" about the hotel, though.Genuine Expedia guest review
Comfortable beddings and shower!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel I've ever been to"
From the rock hard bed and pillows to the lack of overall disgustingness of the room, this hotel offers nothing but disappointment. The $59 a night price tag was no deal for this place. No staff for assistance. Plexy window separating you from the attendant where you check in. No amenities. As in zero. They didn't even have coffee in the lobby in the […] morning. Worse than Bate's Motel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Red Roof, Clean & Pet Friendly"
We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Red Roof Inn OSU North. We were in town for a dog show and the location was very convenient to the Expo Center. The area felt very safe. The hotel was adjacent to a shopping complex with every kind of eatery you could imagine as well as Krogers, Big Lots, & a beverage/party store. We asked for and […] received a first floor room with hdcp parking at our door. Grassy areas were very convenient for our dogs. I believe our room was supposed to be ADA accessible. Not sure it would meet all criteria but it was sufficient for my needs. The tub had grab bars and the toilet was higher. The bathroom was large with a wider door, but I noticed the sink (located in bedroom) was high and would be difficult for a wheelchair. The room furnishings were average with some nice details that I didn't expect (coffee maker, newer TV, hair dryer, desk area and nice office chair). We were satisfied with the cleanliness of the room and bed linens considering the very reasonable price we paid for the room. Housekeeping made up the beds and replaced the towels for us, even providing additional toiletries. WiFi worked just fine the entire time we were there. My bed could have used a bit of memory foam to make it a little more comfortable but it was very manageable. Check in was a very pleasant experience and we were not even required to leave a credit card on file! We will definitely return here for our next visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Can't best this hotel for the price. Nothing fancy but rooms were clean and staff was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for the value!"
Great stay! Good location to the OSU campus. Good parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good No Frills Stay"
Great Proximity to OSU, good restaurants within easy walking distances. Room older and clean, first room smelled like very strong smoke smell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"decent room near the OSU campus"
cklose to OSU, clean, decentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed in a superior king room for 3 nts midweek. The room was comfortable, although the bed rolled to the middle and the pillows were too hard. The desk area was good for working. Housekeeping was effective and unobtrusive. Water pressure was acceptable. The bathroom is tiny. My favorite thing about this hotel was its location. It's on the corner […] of Olentangy River Rd, which is a good connector to the campus as well as Hwy 315. Right next to the hotel are Applebee's, McDonald's, a pizza place, Big Lots, Kroger, and a gas station. All it lacked was a Starbucks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Was in Columbus for one night for something else, but it was Arnold Sports Weekend, so all rates were double and other hotel options very expensive. Road noise heard in motel room; friendly but tacky, unprofessional desk staff; oldish fixtures and furniture in room; dirty carpet in elevator (outside) was gross; two empty beer cans in parking space to […] my left when I pulled in at 9:00 pm and, on other side, guy standing in cold (windy, 20s) by the car's hood on driver side, so I sat in my car for a minute or two til he went into a motel room. It was dark, not sure what hen was doing, but it was probably just smoking or drinking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was very disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. Cleaning supplies, and a vacuum cleaner are things that I think should be utilized. One does not expect to find food wrappers and soda bottles hidden beneath the bed when you rent a room. I would not recommend nor stay in that facility again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK for the price"
Rate was a good price for a no frills place to stay. In a college town, I suppose you can expect noise throughout the night, and the coming/going in the room next to us lasted until at least 4 am. My wife and I decided not to book another motel that has outside entry rooms. We'll pay a little more for a more relaxing stay. Pet friendly policy was nice. […] No hassles. Found extra charges on our credit card when we returned home for a room safe we did not use or want. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very relaxing stay and within walking distance of the Schott.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location was not worth the price"
Rooms need up dating. It was cold and the blanket might as well have been missing. Their computer problems became mine as they expected me to wait until they figured out the issues, at 11pm that did not sit well. It was also too noisy. Definitely not worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is at a very busy intersection, so street noise is heard in the evening and starts back up around 6:00 AM. Kids running in a second floor room sounded like stampede. The bed and linens were clean, but pillows are hard and uncomfortable. The room was basically clean. Although, there was a spray of something on the outside of the bathroom door that […] looked like pop syrup. Desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. Many restaurants in walking distance or short drive. I also found easy access to ATM's in the area. A very short drive to the convention center. A value for the money.

"Clean and simple-"
The location near campus was perfect for my purposes and the hotel was very clean but well worn. The desk staff was helpful with directions, putting me on a high floor because I am a light sleeper. For the price it can't be beat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"one of the best red roof inn's"
better than expectedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the money, a good value: clean and in a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed overnight before a concert at Schottenstein...was able to walk 15 min to the show! Not to mention the restaurants across the street. Great value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Brand new redesigned room. They should all look and feel this nice. What a change from how the hotel use to be years agao. Job well done!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing great, but not bad either."
I stayed because it was close to Wexnar Medical Center. It was okay for my purpose, but nothing great. Clean enough, but could have been cleaner around the edges of the room. Not a business class place, but okay in a pinch.Genuine Expedia guest review
"RED RooF OSU"
The room had cob webs in the corners of the window and ceiling. The covers on the light fixtures in the bathroom were dirty and cracked. The paint was peeling off of the heater in the bathroom. The room was very noisy so it was difficult to sleep even though I was very tired.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't go here"
There was a dead cockroach on the floor, no tissues in the room, no hair dryer, and cigarette marks on the blanket.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for two nights, and both nights there was a bunch of students having a room party down the way from our room. Very noisy. Probably won't stay at this hotel in the future even though it was convenient to surrounding activities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Plumbing had some problems, no bedbugs(big problem in Columbus as a whole)but one of the neighboring rooms had roaches or some sort of bug. Chambermaid was goo, walkway kept clean of snow good hotel for the money. Convenient location. Quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were nice for price. Staff was very courteous. I would definitely staff here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to OSU & local resdturants"
It ws ok for the time I apent there. Could have had more choices on the TVGenuine Hotels.com guest review
it was clean, warm and the bed was comfortable--all i need when traveling :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My expectations were not set very high ; however for the cost, location and free wi-fi, I knew we could manage for this very brief stay. The free wi-fi was mandatory for my stay, as I work from the road. When I called the front desk to ask them how long their wi-fi would be down, her reply was" I don't know, we've had problems for a while now, we can't […] seem to make any headway with our provider, you can call them if you'd like, maybe you can get somewhere with these people!" I don't believe as a guest I'm paid to do this employees' job for her. So unable to do my orders on line at midnight, cost me an approximate $2000.00. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
