This was a surprise stay, as I found myself desperately needing a short nap during an 8 hour stopover in Columbus. Because of the State Fair, hotel rooms were at a premium and it was only through the dedicated efforts of an amazing volunteer at the Port Columbus Airport that we found a hotel at a reasonable price point and...

Thank you, Hazel and Pam, for your efficiency and kindness. You made my stay at your motel a pleasure. You are true professionals, handling everyone efficiently and courteously. This property has been updated nicely, as have most, if not all, of the Red Roofs. The rooms are clean and have good amenities.

First impression is important. Clean and modern reception and rooms. Friendly staff. I rate my hotels by the bathtubs and it was spotless! Beds are cozy, enough pillows and lots of outlets! Clean smell and very modern contemporary look! Def, staying here again!

This hotel's right on the border of the Ohio State University campus, and maybe a mile's walk from the Stadium, if that's what you're interested in. The southern parts of the campus are still quite some distance though. The rooms are pleasant, if a bit basic, and my coffee cups weren't replaced overnight, but in general it was a good... More

Thank you for the review of our property. We are very excited about the "new" Red Roof Plus. We are the 2nd closet hotel to the "Shoe". The walk is about 15 minutes. The next time your in Columbus, try our Premium Rooms, you will be impressed. More

I stayed in a Standard King room. Beautiful wood flooring; spotless bathroom and vanity space; plush, fresh bedding. Based on the parking lot, I gather the hotel was busy, but I heard no one on either side, nor above. The television remote wasn't very responsive. I thought it was batteries, but the front desk gave me a new remote and... More

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
