I have special dietary needs for breakfast and other times. There are no places to get groceries downtown. I saw the sales mgr. at a show and nade a request for something on the... More

First of all, the parking lot is across a 4 lane SIDE street. NOT a 4 lane busy high way. We stayed there March 24-March 26th 2015 during the NHL All Star weekend. We parked when we got there and didn't need our car at all until we left. We were able to walk to the convention center and the... More

Called the number for the tech and after trying different things for 15 minutes with no success then he put me on hold for another 30 minutes and never returned!!! Had to view a webinar that evening and ended up in the lobby to... More

We stay at the Red Roof Plus every time we visit downtown Columbus. This is not your typical Red Roof it is 7 stories high and is more upscale than the usual Red Roof. The location is very convenient to the convention center and Nationwide Arena. We typically visit while attending hockey games. The rooms are nice with a good... More

Recently I had an opportunity to stay at this Red Roof Inn while visiting family. What made this hotel stand out was not the facility but the staff. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The team member whom I had the most dealings with was Jerry. This lovely lady was so helpful, always with a smile on her face. Hopefully... More

My husband and I have stayed here before for a concert at the Nationwide Arena. It is really close to the arena, and there is some restaurants around the area. We stayed in a room last weekend, and between the hours of 11p and 3a, there were some very loud guests(the walls don't have enough insulation as is, but the... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay in our 7-story Red Roof Plus+. You must have spoken to Matthew who would have been working on the night you requested our security team for noisy neighbors. I am glad their action quickly took care of the problem. Guests often tell us how easy it is to... More

When I booked for a quick night in Columbus for the family for a NHL hockey game I was not expecting the quality when I found out the price. JJ and John were great. Red roof plus number 262. I will book with red roof plus again soon for the next game.

Let me start by saying it's been a very long day, and I am not in the best of moods arriving in Columbus at Red Roof 5 hours late (alternator died on the interstate outside of Louisville) and getting lost. The hotel is clean and well appointed and staff very pleasant. The staff is nice, but don't know how to... More

JJ and Jasmine were great at check in and all the staff with whom we interacted were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a great value. It's located near the Convention Center and the State House and is priced much more reasonably than other chains nearby. Parking is across the street but I consider that a minor inconvenience. I have... More
