“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The hotel was very nice. The rooms were partially hardwood flooring and were very clean. The hotel provided a free shuttle to and from the airport. James working at the desk was always helpful and in a good mood. He provided some excellent recommendations for restaurants withing walking distance. I would definitely stay again.

Thank you for telling us about your stay and how much you liked our hardwood floors. Good to know you took advantage of our free airport shuttle services between 8 AM & 6 PM daily. James is going to appreciate your compliments on his service and knowledge of the area restaurants. We hope you will return soon and often. Thank you again!

Noisy- walls and doors are paper thin. Any time someone gets ice at the ice machine it wakes me up in the middle of the night. I can hear conversations going on in the hallway and in the next rooms without the person even yelling.

James is always a pleasure to say hi to at the front desk. Ruby is a great breakfast attendant!

The parking is really annoying- being across the street. The key cards work in and out but only about 60% of the time. It's a lottery, whether the card will work. If it doesn't, you have to repark your car and walk back across the busy street and get a new card, then walk BACK across the street and get back in your car to hope the new key card works. It's really annoying and there has to be a better way to handle this situation. Maybe have the "call" button go directly to the hotel front desk and they have a button to push to open the gate for outgoing cars.

But the front desk is very helpful and knows it happens a lot.

The location is stellar. It's within walking distance to several great restaurants. Love it!

Room Tip: Rooms by ice machine are REALLY noisy.

what a nice hotel! the staff were awesome, the rooms looked brand new. the continental breakfast was as described. great deal for the money! only drawback was the sirens going all night (fire station a few blocks away), the paper thin walls...i could hear the conversation in the next room, and they weren't shouting, and the lack of parking on property...i had to pay $10 for parking? overall the place was great.

Nice rooms, great location and great staff at front desk. Breakfast was very nice with special attention to details and a pleasant greeting by Ruby. free coffee available all day, very good value for a reasonable cost - and only 2 minutes from the convention center!

Comfortable, large, clean rooms, everything good appart from the rubbish breakfasts. Ruby the breakfast attendant is wonderful, very friendly and welcoming, and she deserves a raise, but there was no milk, no cereals, often no fruit (not her fault). Breakfast basically consisted of Sarah Lee muffins or bagels or oatmeal (without any milk!). Poor show.

She was a wonderful Continental Breakfast attendant. I looked forward to seeing her every morning. What a lady! Look for Ruby next time you stay :) The rooms were very, very nice for a Red Roof Inn. Parking was a bit of a hassle but it still was a very nice hotel with incredible customer service. But really I am just writing this review to thank Ruby the breakfast attendant. She is wonderful.

The rooms were big and well furnished. Beds were comfortable and the big flat screen TV was nice for watching football. I was disappointed they did not have roll away beds as there was plenty of room for one. Three of us only needed one room, but had to get 2 because of the lack of roll away beds. The hotel is conveniently located close to shopping, and restaurants and night life. The breakfast was pretty modest. Juice, coffee, instant oatmeal, and tons of pastries and bread. No protein at all.

Thank you for telling us about your stay. Good to know that you enjoyed your time here and found us to be conveniently located within walking distance of so many fine Columbus restaurants, night clubs and shopping. Many guests do like our flat panel TV's and the micro-fridges that are in all of our rooms. We hope to see you back here again soon.
