The place was clean smelled clean. Service was good. For a last minute reservation Check in was easy. If they only had breakfast that would have been great. The beds were very comfortable. I called the front desk for extra pillows and they brought them up to my room within 10 min. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at this Red Roof Inn for 13 nights while my husband was being treated at OSU Hospital. The front desk employees were friendly and helpful. The room smelled nice, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean. The WiFi worked, and there was a widescreen TV. The location was great - I could easily walk to... More

Lots to like in this remodeled property in a great location near OSU and shopping. They forgot to clean my room one day...Hmmm. Also I told them at check-in I would not be using the safe,but was charged any way. I was told this would be straighten out at check out which turned into a hassle.

Always so grossed out at the thought of bugs and other people's 'dirt' in any place I sleep. But here, our room was very clean. There were no traces of bugs of any sort, and everything looked fresh. It is centrally located to stores and restaurants. Great place to stop on our long journey! - It is near the Ohio... More

I couldn't have asked for a more courteous staff. Pam took great care of me, and was able to work with me and my family's situation. Wonderful service Pam!! I would definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend this location.

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!
