5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Our stay was wonderful. Love having a microwave and refrigerator. Clean...modernized rooms.
Reasonable!!! Very affordable. Daytime Desk attendants very very nice. All employees greated you. Breakfast room was nice. Small but nice.....they worked hard to keep it clean and presentable. and stocked. This Redroof was first class for the money!!!!

Very nice room. Clean, neat and ready for us when we arrived. The continental breakfast could have had a few more options but was certainly adequate and the staff was very courteous and friendly. Overall it was a very pleasant stay

Thank you very much for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay. We are glad you found our new style rooms to be clean and comfortable. Every room in our hotel has the same nice amenities: free Wi-Fi connection, flat screen TV, micro-fridge, coffemaker, iron & ironing board, hair dryer and in-room safe. We are also one of the very few downtown hotels that operates a free airport shuttle service. The service is limited to 8 AM to 6 PM daily. Thank you again for your review. Please come back and visit us as often as possible. We love our repeat guests!

This is a very simple clean and pleasant hotel. Our room was plain but clean and .had a microwave and refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. The entire staff was friendly and helpful: I arrived at 1 in the morning and the night desk attendant sent a security person to walk me back from the parking lot, a much appreciated gesture in a strange city. Ruby worked constantly to keep the breakfast bar clean and stocked. She greeted everyone with a cheerful smile and made sure we were all comfortable and felt welcome.

Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay. Ruby is often commended for her attention to detail and friendly customer service on our free continental breakfast each morning from 7 AM to 10 AM. I will let our security officer know that you appreciated the personal escort you were given from the parking lot. We have security staffing each night of the week. The microwave and refrigerator that you mentioned are in every one of our rooms. Thank you again for your comments. Please return and visit us again soon.

Just stayed at the Red Roof Inn in Columbus, IN. Our room was very nice: new wood floors, flat screen TV, new furniture, bedding, etc. It was very clean. Also, there's a small continental breakfast. For $50, this hotel exceeded our expectations!

Thank your for describing your stay in our newer style renovated rooms. Good to know you enjoyed our new rooms. I don't know if you had a chance to use our recently upgraded & free Wi-Fi service or our complimentary airport shuttle between the hours of 8 AM to 6 PM. Please considering staying with us again if you are returning to Columbus. We appreciate your business and your comments.

Ruby, the hostess at the continental breakfast, gave everyone a great start to the day. She is so efficient and keeps everything so clean and organized. Her beautiful smile makes you ready to start your day with a smile on your own face. She is exceptional.

Room Tip: Wish they had rooms with two queen beds instead of just full size.

JJ checked me in did a wonderful job. A very pleasant fellow. Bonita the housekeeper did an excellent job cleaning the room. She must of worked hard by how great it looked! Called down to ask for a late check out and Tim seemed to be clueless on how the hotel operates. Ken the maintenance man is awesome. Haley was great @ check out as well. Joy seemed to stare a lot giving an unwelcoming feeling with the expression on her face. All in all this hotel is in a wonderful location and the rooms are all up to date and look pretty sharp. I'm just happy I didn't need parking, its $10 but hey at least I understand it's downtown in the state capital.

Thank you for commenting about your stay with us. Nice to know you liked our newly remodeled rooms with the hardwood floors, flat panel TVs, micro fridges and free Wi-Fi connection. Sorry about the $10.00 parking charge. You will find it to be the lowest charge of the any downtown hotels in our area. JJ, Bonita, Ken and Haley will be very appreciative of being named in your review. Thank you again for your review and for your business.

My daughter and I stayed for one night. The staff was helpful and friendly. The place was clean but very dark. The room looked like a highway motel room and smelled a bit musty. The bathroom was very tiny. The parking was a complete joke and the charges for the safe idiotic. It would be a good roadside motel but not at these prices.

Thank you for telling us about your recent stay with your daughter. We are glad you found our staff to be friendly and helpful. Nice to know that your room was clean, even if not as lighted as you would have liked. Please accept my apologies for the parking situation and for the in-room safe charges. We hope you will stay with us again in the future.
