We were able to get a great rate on a King Size non-smoking room. I didn't realize it, but the whole hotel was non-smoking! It truly was.......not like some non-smoking rooms we've been in... More

We spent one night at this motel as we had to report to the OSU Hospital very early for morning surgery and didn't want to worry about a two hour drive to the city. We chose the Red Roof Plus+ because of the location and the accessible king room. As advertised, the room was newly remodeled. It was super clean.... More

I stay here at least 4 times a year when I have treatments at OSU. Pam has always been very accommodating, making sure that I get a HC room even if it requires some adjusting. Great service, rooms are always clean. The Best!
