"Inexpensive room rate seemed attractive, but..."
We were in town for a family event and didn't want to burden family members with trying to find somewhere to sleep. So, we opted to take a room in a local hotel. We chose the Red Roof Plus because it indicated it was newly remodeled and the rates were very reasonable. However, we only lasted one night (of the planned four) because the bed was god awful hard. I know that hotel beds are typically stiff, but this was like sleeping on a brick. Otherwise, the staff was very accommodating and nice. The room itself was well appointed and clean.

"CLEAN AND COMFY!"
I was super happy with the location of the hotel, the outside did not do the inside justice. The room is very up to date with mini fridge and microwave, great channels on TV. My favorite part of all is the cleanliness since that is the most important factor to me in choosing a hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

"Don't stay here."
I have stayed at this hotel 4 different times in 2014. Every 3 months I travel to Columbus to see a Dr. at OSU concerning my cancer treatment. On my most recent trip to Columbus, my flight from Dallas was cancelled because of weather in Columbus (airport was shutdown). When Hotel.com called Red Roof to cancel and get me a refund, they said they wouldn't give me a refund even though they knew the weather caused multiple issues in Columbus including the airport being closed. I called the Manager the next day. He (Mr. H) admitted the hotel wasn't full that night but he still wouldn't give me a refund because he had to hold the room. Upon asking him that "holding" my room didn't cost Red Roof any money since there were multiple open rooms that night, he said he wouldn't change his decision. I don't think any hotel or hotel manager should take advantage of a customer because of uncontrollable circumstances. Red Roof should have a more reasonable policy when know weather issues cause people to miss their reservation.

"Gave this place 1 more chance."
I have stayed here about 5 times. I said I would not go back because it was dirty the time before last. I gave it one more try but it will be my last. The floors and bathtub were dirty. Not enough towels for 2 people. I did not complain as it seems like it did no good the last time. The cleaning staff was rude. I was walking out carrying suitcases and one woman barged in front of me and stopped. I said excuse me (nicely) and when I turned my back I heard them mocking me. Not a well run hotel. Stay some place else.

"Suprisingly nice"
Last minute decision to head to Columbus left us with few options at a reasonable price. Pulling up to the hotel I thought we might have made a bad choice but once speaking with the extremely friendly and helpful staff and seeing the small but very clean room I was very surprised. Also we had two dogs along with us which the hotel gave us no problems about no extra fee. Overall very happy with it and would probably stay again to save a few bucks and be able to bring my dogs along.

"Unsanitary"
Have stayed here a few times. Liked it until my last stay.The toilet was filthy in the first room they gave me. Changed rooms. Next room toilet and bathroom floor was filthy. Just finished a 6 hour ride and was not up for finding a new place. Cleaned the bathroom myself good enough to use it and kept my shoes on the whole time. Did not use the shower, too gross. Told desk in the morning and filled out complaint card. Never heard a word, never going back. Unsanitary!

"Skeptical Mom"
We were going to an OSU game. With the price and location I wasn't expecting much. I was blown away by how nice the room was, how nice the staff was, and felt surprisingly safe even with my infant in toe! You can WALK to the game, there are also lots of places to eat in the plaza that bumps up against it. The parking lot was as bright as day. Skeptical Moms - this isn't a case of get what you pay for! Just as nice as the more expensive places! Will be staying here again!

"Ohio State visit"
Perfect for campus visit. Very easy to get to campus from the motel. Restaurants and grocery store across the street. Beds were very comfortable. A bit of weather stripping around the door may help keep some of the outside noise out during the evening but area was quiet by 10:00 pm. The only not so good part was the nonslip mat in the shower. It was discolored. Part of it flipped over and there was mold under it. The room was clean other than that.

"Great deal! Highly recommended!"
The room exceeded my expectations as far as decor and look. Hardwood floors, nice linen, marble countertop, very mod layout with the desk, and a flat screen TV too! Only minuses were the temp control (because the doors aren't enclosed in a hallway and lead to the parking lot, it gets very cold and even with the heat on max the room was chill), and they could have swept up some dust bunnies here and there. Overall a big surprise, pretty comfortable, and an excellent location with shops, restaurants, fast food, and The Ohio State University right at your door.

"Nice motel close to Value City Arena."
We chose this Red Roof because it was close to Value City Arena. The staff was great; helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The room was very clean, the bed very comfortable; the shower had plenty of hot water! If there was a downside, the rooms are small but for just an overnight it was great. We would recommend this Red Roof to our friends if they need something close to the Arena and areas close by.

"My first stay at Red Roof"
Immediately after my check-in at 6pm, when I arrived to the room a cleaning lady was there with the TV on. She left in a minute, then what I found was the toilet bowl (outside...) VERY, shockingly, dirty. Also room vacuuming had not been done at all. I called the front desk and they sent another lady fairly quickly, to fix the problem. They don't provide "Don't disturb" sign on the door. You should expect a loud knock at the door in the morning. Otherwise there was no problem.

It was a pretty good location. We didn't feel unsafe and there weren't any kind of problems.

"DIdn't feel safe!"
I woke up at 1:30am to no power in my room. Had to walk all the way down to office to get help. On the way back I had a man follow me in his car. The man then decided to park and continued starring at me. The was he was acting and looking at me I became very frightened, thankfully I was able to get close enough to my room. Once he saw I was at my room he pulled his car up literally in front of door and continued starring at me with his driver side door slightly opened. I let the front office know as there was only one woman, alone watching the grounds and I was concerned for her as well. They do not have security watching the grounds. Also, you are not inside a building., all doors face to parking lot. I will never stay there again for that reason. I will say that my room was clean and felt up to date. There are no frills or thrills. Housekeeping staff was very friendly! My only real issue is the lack of security and having one woman watching the entire place alone. They need to have security as the surrounding neighborhood is not that great either.

I needed lodging for one night prior to anticipated procedure at OSU for my husband. I wanted some place to sleep and shower. Everything was neat and clean; fitted my needs perfectly, especially the rate. Not knowing if there would be an extended stay for my husband, I had to check out. I came back in the evening after making another last minute request for a room for one night. I found the handicapped room to be suited for my needs. Once again my requirements were satisfied.

We had no trouble with the room. We had a first floor room just outside the office and right by the parking lot and our car. That was very convenient. My only issue was the carpeting should be steam cleaned every once in awhile. My socks were black from walking on the carpet. But everything else was very clean. We ordered dinner from a Dominos online and was pleased with the service.

The hotel is not fancy. BUT it is newly renovated, our room was clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable, we had a mini fridge/microwave, the AC worked, the shower stayed hot and had great pressure, there was a flat screen TV with as many channels as we needed, housekeeping came to our room and made the bed/cleaned.

This is a no-frills motel with rooms much nicer than the outside appearance of the building suggests. It isn't quite walking distance to OSU, but it is a quick drive to the heart of campus. The motel is close to restaurants and basic shopping, and seems suited to families who just need a clean comfortable place to sleep.
