I can't speak highly enough of this hotel! The front desk staff-John, Shay and Michael were the most helpful and kind people! They all did everything to make our stay enjoyable. The rate was affordable and the rooms were clean and updated. The staff were continuously refilling food for the continental breakfast. I will definitely stay at this hotel again... More

Was I Columbus for matsuri con. This was located just across the street from the convention center. The staff was super helpful and went above and beyond my expectations. The rooms look newly renovated. The sound proofing needed work, but was manageable. Overall very good for the price.

A friend of mine and myself were planning a 21st birthday bash celebration, and we wanted the works. Everything that we had had done our research on was pretty pricey. Needless to say that when we discovered Red Roof Inn, we weren't expecting much different than we'd seen to that point. We were taken back when we walked in to... More

Just a few short blocks away from the Convention Center, the Red Roof Inn met all of our needs. At first, I was a little confused by their parking arrangement (drop bags off and check in....then enther the parking area). It was a nicely appointed room and met all of our needs.

The room was nice, spacious, and the lay out was fine. I think the room was set up for a business person. That was okay because I had more counter space to put my stuff. I liked that it had free wifi. The bed was not great. My neck and back were sore when I woke up each morning. The... More
