"Just needed somewhere to sleep"
Nice room but small. It was a good place to stay for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to OSU Medical Center"
It was a pretty good location. We didn't feel unsafe and there weren't any kind of problems. I liked that it was only a few minutes to get to OSU Medical Center and that it was next to a shopping plaza. Eat at Café Kabul if you get a chance. Also the people working there were really nice and I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to OSU Wexner Medical Center"
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. Personnel very friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking Distance to The Shoe"
Stayed in this hotel for an OSU football game. The location is convenient to Lane Ave, the Schottenstein Center, Woody Hayes Facility, Wexner Center etc...There is an Applebee's, Kroger, McD's, and a few other little places right there. 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. For the price, I was very satisfied and would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was updated and clean. No breakfast included with room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal for a basic motel"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very impressed with this Red Roof Inn"
Close to the OSU campus, which was convenient for us. Our room looked recently updated. I don't stay at too many Red Roof Inns because they are usually kind of low end. We stayed at this one because the location was convenient, and it was only one night. I was very surprised. Easily the nicest one I've ever been to. I have no complaints whatsoever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but awful, rude service!"
I booked three rooms for my family during my business trip in the area and the receptionist was the most rude, unwelcoming hotel receptionists I have ever encountered! I understood that check in time is 3 pm , and we got there around 2ish. We just had a 5 hours drive and my baby threw up in the car. I kindly asked if it's possible for us to check in […] to at least one room so we can clean up. The receptionist did not try to accommodate us at all, and all she did was, lie to our faces, saying that no rooms were available yet due to cleaning. Their check out time is super early (11 am) and it's 2 pm, not even one single room's cleaned yet? Thank you very much. That would be the last time I booked with this franchise.

"Fine for a night"
Very close to OSU. In fact, the football team was practicing right across the street. Many restaurants within walking distance. Hair on the pillows (I'm bald). In the morning checkout the receptionist was too busy in the back to come out so I had to tell out, "I'm leaving the key on the desk and leaving." She yelled back, "OK!" I'd stay there aga […] in Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Paint smell wAs really over bearing at first. And there was a dog hair in our bed. Other than that, the staff was very nice, you couldn't here anything outside the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you are an Ohio State fan, this is where the Wolverines should stay. This hotel probably gets a lot of bookings because of its proximity to The Ohio State University. It's next to a shopping center where there are restaurants and grocery store, so there is a lot of traffic. The room has wood floors, and consequently they aren't vacuumed enough. I […] couldn't believe the dirt that came off my feet in the shower. On a plus side, it is convenient to several sports venues on campus, including the Jack Nicklaus Museum, which everyone should visit because it tells the true story of Ohio State's greatest athlete and one of our nation's greatest sportsmen.

We stayed here on our 2nd night in Columbus after a terrible experience at another hotel on the 1st night. The rooms were CLEAN and newly remodeled with a very modern feel. The shower was nice, and wifi was provided. The front desk service was polite, friendly and fast. The room we had, with a king-sized bed, was a little small but we were only sleeping […] there one night so it worked for us. The neighborhood was safe from what we could tell. There was no noise from the roads nearby. Would definitely stay here again!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to the Columbus Crew Stadium"
Much nicer than our original hotel, Day's Inn by the airport. Nice and clean, and the neighbor hood was much safer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The clerk was friendly but gave us the key to the wrong room. Then the room was nice and bed was great, but the shower was so disgusting that my daughter wore her shoes in it to take a shower. We came for a college visit so the location was just right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay at OSU"
Hazel and Pam at the desk are so friendly and welcoming. The room is clean,and the floors!! Laminate! What a great idea! The towels are huge and smell great. We will stay here again on our next trip back to OSU. LOVE Buckeye store right next door and the convenience to Kroger and restaurants within walking distance. Great value too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel, hard to get to."
We were disappointed that the hotel choose to close half the parking lot while still having a pretty full house. It was already late when we got there due to traffic from Red, White, and Boom. When we did get to the weird back entrance to the hotel, there were cones blocking the entrance and then we had to back around the hotel to find a spot. Seemed […] like a bad weekend to repace the lot! Everything else was nice about the hotel and we would probably go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worked for what we needed"
We needed a place to stay close to OSU campus for daughter's college orientation at a reasonable/inexpensive price. Hotel was close and comfortable and relatively inexpensive. It could have been a little cleaner for our tastes (several hairs in bathroom, on floor and in tub) but, in my mind, it wasn't outrageous and some of those little things are unavoidable […] as perfection is an unattainable and unreasonable expectation, especially at this price.

"Walking Distance to the Schott"
I stayed here 4 years ago, and the place was rather seedy. It's been completely remodeled since then, and they did a very nice job. It's an old building with outside entrances to the rooms, which may bother some, but the room was clean, comfortable, and pretty. If you're attending an event at the Schottenstein Center, it's a 15 minute walk away. No […] parking or traffic hassles. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and Reasonably Priced"
This hotel was clean and reasonably priced for my one night stay during my daughter's college orientation. Nothing fancy, but it was what I expected. The hotel staff was friendly when I checked in and out. No problems with the room or staff at all. Near shopping and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel, very close to OSU"
We stayed in one of the recently renovated rooms (June 2014). It was OK for the price. Pros: Great location near OSU. Nice beds, clean room, responsive staff. Cons: Slow internet, very weak wi-fi signal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly, accommodating front desk. Hotel is being renovated and it looks great, modern touches. Paint smell in our room was very strong, couldn't open windows for fresh air. Love the wood floors, flat screen tvs. Compact space, very small bathroom, sink in area open to the room. Comfortable beds, good night's sleep after walking campus all day […] despite very loud air conditioner. Convenient location for OSU visit and a place to sleep and shower. No breakfast included, but restaurants, grocery, gas all across the parking lot. Coffee in room and in lobby kept hubby happy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bad performance from Hotels.com"
I booked the 2 Queen bed room for 4 people to stay. My best guess is that Hotels dot com did not communicate the type of room or other info to hotel. When I walked into my room with a 2 month old, after a 5 hour tiring drive, with me I found it to be a king bed. I had to go down again to change the room.The hotel staff told me that she gave me the room […] that was on my reservation. I have a clear email from hotels dot com showing a two queen bed room.

"Close to Ohio State University"
Bathroom was disgusting...we had to wipe it down with antiseptic wipes we brought with us. Floor had not been vacuumed recently...we found items on the floor (such as bobby pins, etc.). Maid did not replenish all used items day to day (we stayed 3 days) e.g. ice bucket plastic liner was never replaced, tissue package was not replaced, etc. Construction […] for renovation was going on during the day in the unit above us...we were never told of plans for this noise and inconvenience when we booked months earlier. We found loose hairs in the sheets the first night we stayed (gross!). Definitely not worth the inflated price we paid for OSU graduation weekend! On a positive note, the lady at the desk running the place was very pleasant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would not stay there again"
When booking hotel I was unaware of construction going on and was constantly woken up early in the morning by drilling going on above us. Because the hotel was non refundable, we were stuck staying there. When booking the hotel we were not given any warning of any maintenance that was going on. Ended up checking out early because we couldn't get any […] sleep in the morning. It would have been nice to know this was going on so that I could have picked a better destination that ensured us a good nights sleep. Would not recommend to anyone.

"Worst hotel experience ever!"
This was absolutely the single worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. First off, we arrived around check in time, 3 p.m. Before we were even greeted we were told that no rooms were clean yet and we could not check in until 5. We left and did not end up getting back to the hotel until 6 p.m. We were again told that no rooms were clean yet. We waited […] along with several other groups of people for 30 minutesnor so until the manager came in and wrote down 2 room numbers along with "5 minutes" on a piece of paper and hands it to the lobby lady. He does not say a word, no apology, nothing. We finally get checked in amd when we get up to our room the door is open and they are still cleaning amd installing a phone. We go out for the evening and come back to sleep. In the morning around 9 am, we are just getting up, getting ready. There are 4 girls ill inform you off. All of a sudden the bald manager from the day before just opens our door! He sees us, then closes the door and then knocks. My friend opens the door and he says "oh I just wanted you to know I worked here." Which who cares?! You cant just walk into peoples rooms! When I go to check out he is in the lobby. Again he doesnt speak. no apology or offer of any sort of compensation for the awful experience. Do not stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Don't expect your typical Red Roof Experience"
The stay was so-so. Beds are a bit too soft, the weather was unseasonably warm and the A/C was mediocre and the amenities are few. We were a bit dismayed when our toilet backed up (still not sure why) and we called for someone to fix it and they brought us a plunger to do it ourselves. It didn't work, so we got to change rooms. I booked a standard which […] has no fridge or microwave. I was upgraded after the toilet incident and the new room had a bit better mattresses, a fridge and a microwave but no blow dryer. But...all in all, it was just a short walk to the stadium, it's close by groceries, restaurants and the highway so can't complain too loudly. It's all about the football!

"Ohio State Visit"
Came to Columbus for an admitted student visit for my son. The hotel is less than a mile from campus or anywhere on campus you would want to go to. A few fast food restaurants in close walking distance. Room was fine. Beds comfortable. After the shirtless hillbillies in the two rooms adjacent to us went into their rooms for the night about 10:15PM and […] quieted down, everything was fine for my one night. Would use this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
