I was blown away! Expected little and got a huge surprise in the size of the room, updated with new flooring and furniture. Very good price! Super friendly staff and a decent continental breakfast but not very big so get there early. Comfy bed but pillows were kinda small and too firm to my liking. Walking distance to the convention...

Room had hardwood floors with carpets, a spacious desk, and a comfortable bed. The only thing I wish was a little bigger was the bathroom. It was a little small for my personal tastes. Can't complain about that too much for the price, though. Staff was friendly and allowed my friend and I to have a late check out at... More

My family are hockey nuts. My husband and I meet are son at this hotel, this half way between our homes. Our favorite team is the Pittsburgh Penguins and they were in town to play the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Nationwide Arena. Our room was on the 5th floor and had two double bed, it was so big that... More

The room is nice enough, very quiet and close to the Nationwide Arena and LC pavilion and lots of restaurants. The bed and pillow was uncomfortable but the most annoying thing was that parking was across the street and costs 10$ a day. If it was advertised that parking was across the street I would've stayed else were, just keep... More

Great property. Convenient to downtown. Nice rooms. Friendly staff. Parking across the street is #10/day and handy. Great downtown value. Beware of the $1.50 a day plus tax "safe fee". It is voluntary and they will remove it -- but only at check out. It is not disclosed at the time of reservation when the rate is quoted. An annoyance... More

Stayed here on a business trip and was blown away by the friendliness of the staff!

The room was well appointed and very comfortable. The nicest Red Roof Inn I've ever been in. I stay at Red Roof when riding my motorcycle as they are inexpensive and usually decent but this one is much more, well, upscale. The breakfast was just a shade over dry continental but a bagel and coffee got me through. Great towels,... More
