I just needed a place to sleep, but it is time for new beds. Amazingly quiet in the room, since it it surrounded by major roads. Very convenient to a grocery store, pharmacy, little mall and places to eat. AC didn't work so well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close enough to OSU"
Nice office staff, helpful, room was basic but ok, fairly quiet, long but doable walk to OSU, convenient to fast food and grocery store.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place but the tv had a problem with the pictureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location / old beds"
Convenient location near the north end of the OSU campus and near the neighborhood of Clintonville. The room was clean and tidy. On the other hand It was hard to manage the temperature in the room (too hot) on a cool fall evening. Also, the beds were uncomfortable. They were a little squeaky and didn't seem to have much support left in them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great and the staff was super awesome!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Served our visit well...close to our destination, restaurants in walking distance and reasonably priced. Some noisy patrons children detracted from our stay but that is not the hotels fault.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived w 2 rms reserved ... One rm was good but other had a funky smell but we were very happy w a prompt and easy move to another room....we had a noise and rowdie drinks during the nite but after we reported it to desk it was promptly taken care ofGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had to clean my bathroom"
Had to clean my bathroom apond arrival. Only one bed had a fitted sheet!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, price & clean"
The exterior looks a little worn down, but inside of room was clean, esp. the bathroom. I checked in early and they accommodated me, although it was on first floor and being a single woman traveler, it made me a little nervous. But it turned out well. So close to OSU and Crew stadium. Grocery store, gas station and eateries next door and there is fridge […] in room to keep things cold. I'd stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value motel on campus"
Friendly staff, and the motel delivers as advertised. Nothing fancy, but good and cheap for a night! Walking distance to Restaurants as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Descent Overnight Hotel"
This was a descent hotel for an overnight stay. It was close to the campus areas and there was food mearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wish I could give 3.5 rating"
Doesn't quite measure up to a "4", but I would rate overall closer to 3.5. For the price, this hotel was just fine. Not perfect, but neither was the Fairfield Suites across the street that I stayed in a few nights later. Room was clean and quiet, beds were comfortable. What more do you need?Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a little older facility but it had an elevator, which we needed, and all things worked out very well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trouble with the beds not being made up."
We were given our key, went to our room, door was unlocked an the beds weren't made up. My husband went down an told them, they gave us another room, same thing happened. The third time she put us clear up on the third floor, the beds were made. However, the floors had not been swept, the navy blue carpet shows all.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was in Columbus visiting friends. This wasn't a bad place to stay. I was surprised that they did not have a ironing board but what do you expect from a 2 star hotel. They are very conveniently located to stores and restaurants. Only concern I had was some of the guests looked like they lived there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked having an Applebees, a McDonalds and a grocery store all within walking distance. Room was comfortable and clean, but it had a mild strange odor and the shower curtain had a mildew odor. I usually try to find a smoke-free hotel so that I don't have to deal with the weird deodorizer smells. (I thought we had come farther in clean-smelling odor-killing […] products and better ventilation in hotels by now.) I told the staff and they were prompt to take action on the shower curtain. Still, it was a good price and a good location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for visiting OSU and great price"
No frills, comfortable room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Bed Bugs"
I went to a concert at the Schott, and the hotel was within walking distance. The room was comfortable, and clean. And I always check for Bed Bugs, when I stay in a hotel. There weren't any signs of them. I have stayed in this hotel before and will likely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to OSU"
Nice enough for the money. Close to OSU. The room was clean and what I expected from an older hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable, reliable hotel at OSU"
Great location for visiting OSU. Hotel clean and well cared for. A/C could have worked better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The website showed all rooms had microwaves and refrigerators. The room I had did not have these and I was told by the desk clerk that all rooms did not have those amenities. It is unfair to pay the same price as others who had those amenities in their rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for overnight with family dog"
Perfect place for an overnight stay with family dog in tow. We stayed in a ground floor king room with convenient access to green space and our vehicle. I would absolutely stay here again. Thanks!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we were not there long just a place to sleep. It was great to have Applebees and McDonalds within walking distance. The water pressure in shower was great and hot. Don't usually find that in hotels. Over all, a good place to rest your head after a long day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Schottenstein Center"
We stayed here because we were on a budget and needed a quick overnight stay close to the Schottenstein Center where we were attending a concert. You can tell this place has seen its share of crazy guests. One of the rooms down the hall from us was open and the guests were passed out on the bed and the room smelled horrible, a mixture of cigarettes […] and beer. Our non-smoking room was ok in the way of cleanliness, but I would only recommend the Red Roof for a quick overnight stay. Anything over a night I would suggest spending more money and staying at a higher quality hotel in the same area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for short trip"
Good, clean, nice for a short term. Easy for transportationGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed in a room that had two full sized beds and both had big stains on the sheets. Our next room smelled terrible. I will not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was very pleasant and our room was very clean. My stay was very pleasant. The only drawback was that there was not a continental breakfast offered. Muffins and fruit would have been nice. There were places conviently located near the hotel to eat at, but sometimes when your in a hurry, or don't want to leave the hotel yet, it is nice […] to have onsite and nutritional food options.

"Red Rof Inn Ackerman - Great Deal!!"
Ive stayed there numerous times and for the money it is a great place. Good location and great amenities across the street, Applebees, McDs, Kroger and others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great one night stop over"
Room was very clean, comfortable temperature when we arrived, and spacious enough to relax. It was confidently located next to restruants and shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Run down in great location"
We requested a nonsmoking room and while that's what the sign in the room said, the room smelled of smoke. The room was run down and was clean. I was glad it was only a one night stay due to the smell of the room. I would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the best..."
The room was not the best, the carpet needed to be cleaned, the bathroom was less than desirable. The towels were dingy, the tub was dirty, and the water took FOREVER to go out of the tub.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to campus"
could use some cosmetic upgrades/maintenance, you have to request hair dryers, staff could use a little more tidiness in their appearances (shirts unbuttoned, untucked, wrinkled), coffee area at check in was very messy but the following morning it was clean and tidyGenuine Expedia guest review
Free WiFi, ample cable channels (but NO Golf Channel), great office/desk area. But the room needed more lighting, it was a touch dark.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was not very clean, and quite worn and tired. There were hairs on the counter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
EVERYING THING WAS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice and comfortable stay"
it was a really comfortable stay ... i knew of the hotel when i lived and attended OSU. the location was perfect. and the management staff were excited. the housekeeping staff was wonderful as well. i would recommend this hotel and i would stay here again! the surrounding area had everything needed; food, entertainment and cocktails!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Red Roof -OSU"
Did not book this hotel expecting to be staying in a Hilton. Great rate. Hotel was fairly close to High Street and Short North. Room didn't have hair dryer or iron/ironing board which was surprising. Comforters had burn holes in them, even though it was a smoke free room. Staff was friendly. If your looking for somewhere to just sleep off a night at […] the Cantina, this is your place. Could have been MUCH MUCH worse. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
For the price it was pretty good. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean, but old looking. It was near the University and to downtown. Restaurants and shopping close by. We just needed a place to sleep so we were not planning on hanging out there. The downside was the office clerk originally gave us a room that was not clean so we had to switch […] rooms. There was a lot of garbage outside, so they do not keep up with the appearances on the outside of the hotel. The hotel is located in a heavy traffic area. There were not enough towels in the bathroom for a one night stay for 2 people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great room for the price"
Front desk clerks were friendly, courteous, helpful and kind. Room was clean and AC ran great. Lots and lots of hot water. If you're looking for a no frills clean room close to The Ohio State U campus, this hotel is hard to beat. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the money"
Good price for the room wasn't too bad just could have done better with cleaning. Hair in bathtub when I entered and little crumbs on the floor by the bed kinda ruined it .. Service at front desk was good fast and friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean commuter motel."
Easy in and easy out. The room was booked on internet and everything was how it was supposed to be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not so great experience"
We were staying at the hotel because a family member was in the OSU hospital. We were given a rate for the room for the entire stay from Expedia. The hotel staff decided to jack the room rate up to more than double the rate we had confirmed with Expedia. The reason, the Who was in town for a concert. We left for another hotel after some pretty rude […] comments from the hotel staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel, close to activities."

"Close to many things"
Hotel is basic and reasonably priced. It's right next to restaurants and a Kroger (grocery store). Also close to Ohio State and Crew Stadium. Nothing special about it, but nothing horrible either.Genuine Expedia guest review
very nice staff, applebees & mcdonalds right next doorGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were looking for an inexpensive place to crash for one night that was close to OSU campus. The location was perfect. My only real quibble was the mattress. Terrible. It was worn out and very tired.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very clean room for a no-frills hotel. But we stayed on a Saturday night and our TV was snowy, and there was no one around to fix, or even look into, it. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
