Holes in sheet on bed. No a/c in room had to move to another room. No sense of pride on keeping the place up. Trash in parking lot. Worried about leaving car for the night. Hid everything in the trunk.

The new rooms are really nice. I love the wood floors. Had no problem going barefoot in the room...can't say that I felt comfortable doing that in some other places I've stayed. Beds were comfortable. Shower was hot with good pressure. But the biggest perk is that I didn't hear a peep from outside or other rooms. Would stay again.

Having stayed at the downtown Columbus Convention Center RedRoof Plus+ property without incident, I decided to try the OSU Plus+ property July 2014. My stay was absolutely horrific, an utter fail, indicating to me that the Plus+ designation means little more than nice floor finishes: - They wouldn't honor their RediCard because I booked through Delta - Earwig crawling over...

If you are looking for a place that is close to everything this is it. I had my dog with me and was in town because he needed to go to Ohio State Vet which it is very close to. They had the best property for a dog. Lots of grass and trees with 3/4 of the place fence in.... More

It's what you'd expect, you pay for the location. I don't think there's a breakfast. It's worth staying at if you need to be in the area. You can probably save money by staying here, but I mean, don't honeymoon here or anything.

We stayed a weekend, in the middle of a renovation. I was pleasantly surprised at the new floor--carpet (tiles) only around the beds; the rest of the floor was imitation wood--something you could actually get -clean-! I wish all motels would move over to cleanable floors. The new sink was pretty; the furniture fresh. Non-smoking with a $200 charge if... More

As stated in other reviews, the location is outstanding if you are interacting with OSU in any way. A simple version of the Red Roof with no frills. They are currently remodeling the rooms and I had the good fortune of getting one that was recently remodeled. It was obviously clean with a good twist IMO, hardwood floors and rugs.... More
