A colleague and I each rented one of the lodges since we wanted to stay close to the Bing Cancer Center for a training course. We were both very pleased with the spaciousness of the lodges and the overall cleanliness (had some concern about that when I read some of the other reviews). The bathroom was huge with the sink...

Third room they did not approve with security so we walked to the room in -10 degree weather carrying our stuff! And had to drive back to front desk to get... More

This is about our fifth stay here. We are here almost twice a year. Location and amenities are still excellent, but the windows need washing, the wooden blinds are very dusty and the carpet, particularly under the bed, needs a shampoo. I hope the cabins will get the attention they need soon.

We spent 10 days at Big Red's Lodge this month, visiting family and friends. The location is perfect, the bungalows are wonderful, nicely furnished and the wooded setting is inspiring. We go to Columbus every summer and while this was our first time at Big Red's, we're already planning to stay there same time, next year!

We stayed here for a weekend on business. Wow. What an excellent option near the medical centers and Ohio State! On check in, they provided access to the heart center gym and coupons for snacks in the cafe. The rooms are actually 1/2 of new, adorable bungalows in a private wooded area. It was very quiet, serene and lovely. The... More

Nice cottages, but there is only a microwave and coffee pot in the kitchen area. Two burners or a small oven would be wonderful. Very comfortable sitting area with gas fireplace, but in the colder months, cottage never got toasty warm. Great access to walking paths and to the fantastic McConnell Center with its outstanding fitness facilities. For the price,... More

Big Red's Lodges offered more than we could have imagined. In our suite there was a mini fridge, sink, coffeepot, and microwave in the large foyer/living room. This area also contained a gas operated fireplace and couch. Large, spacious bathrooms made for a lavish experience and the bedroom was large and bed comfy. ONLY complaint is that the pillows are...

it was a very good size one bedroom cottage. They were successful to give some cozy invitational feeling from the form of cottage to fireplace and big bedrooms, I liked this cabin. The bed by itself was good , but the pillows were not comfortable at all. somekind of synthetic material that I could not find comfort. They gave me... More
