If you are visiting OSU's campus or greater Columbus, stay here! Our king room was brand new, clean and well appointed. The staff was lovely; we asked about a place to eat dinner and they not only gave us a recommendation (Thurman Cafe) but they even picked up the front desk computer monitor to show us the video from the...

I recently visited Columbus, Ohio and stayed at the Red Roof Inn on OSU campus Olentangy Rd and Ackerman Rd. and was very pleased with the facilities. The place was very clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. Applebees and fast food across the street. I would stay there again anytime. I would recommend it to all.

This quote is what the manager told me the morning after I requested a room change in the middle of the night. Upon check out I asked him what was being done. He mentioned that a bed bug sniffing dog was coming and that "IF they found them, I would be comp'd that evening's stay on my card". I'm not... More

Very basic nothing fancy, but it suited our needs perfectly. Close to OSU campus. Clean. Could be a little quieter with insulation so thin you hear what goes on in room nextdoor, but we managed to sleep

My daughter and recently stayed here when she was visiting OSU. We have stayed in many hotels lately and this one did not impress me. I have paid about the same for much nicer places in other cities. The place was a little dark, worn and creepy. The location is good, and it's convenient to have a little shopping center... More
