Good location close to the fairgrounds. Easy access from I 71. Property looks ok from outside. This hotel was probably nice years ago but lack of up keep is evident. The carpet inside our room had patches replaced. Carpet was worn and frayed. The room was clean but the sink in the bathroom had many stains making it appear dirty.... More

It was a good stay for a con my friends and I went to during the winter. Booking.com messed up my booking of this hotel, but the front desk lady helped me figure out what was going on by calling the booking.com help center. Turns out they listed my booking under my guest's name instead of mine. I was very... More

This hotel is under renovation. It is pet-friendly; I hope they keep it that way when they're done. We were placed in a pre-renovation room. We asked the front desk people for a recommendation for dinner, and were guided to Cumin, an Indian restaurant that turned out to be one of our all-time favorites. I think Mr. Patel thought at...

Booked this hotel on line as a cheap and late quick stop but it is not a pleasant place to stay or linger. As other reviewers have commented there is a dreadful stale smoke smell that pervades the reception area and the carpet leading up to the first floor seemed to be very dirty. The impression is one of a... More

On my recent business trip to Columbus, Ohio I had to leave the Days Inn Columbus North for security and noise reasons (unsafe and R&R too loud to sleep - see my review) and ended up across the street at Red Roof Inn Columbus - Ohio State Fairgrounds at Exit 117 off of Interstate 71 and off US-161 (Dublin Granville...

I booked this hotel thinking I was getting a good price for a decent hotel room for one night! I was actually getting a decent price for a BED BUG INFESTED hotel room!

We take these types of matters very seriously and we made sure this was not our location. Sachin General... More

Hotel was right at highway exit - great. Check in was OK. Hotel obviously older and construction is going on. Room was definitely old. Needs updates, new flooring, etc. Stepped on carpet tacks going into bathroom. Bath definitely needs an update. Wallpaper was hanging off the walls. Went to breakfast room Sunday AM. Nothing left. It was close to 10:00... More

Horrible experience. Pillow case and bed spread have burnt holes in them. Water stains all over the ceiling. Hotel wreaks of second hand smoke. No coffee maker or iron in my room like I paid for. Bed was wrinkled and looked like it had been through hell and back. Highly unsatisfied with their professionalism with handling my complaint and concerns.... More

After a long day of driving to Columbus I was left with no choice but to go cheap and quick. Well I guess some lessons are hard learned. The rooms are cheap, but the price should be way lower for what you get. Tiny, unclean, rundown rooms. Every sheet on my bed had a cigarette burn and at least one... More
