“Worth the price, nice area of the Arena District, charge for parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2010

Booked a night for a show at the Basement and the OSU game the next day. Room was newly remodeled and clean. Bathroom a little small, but a fridge and microwave was available in the room. There was an unexpected charge to park your car not mentioned when we booked the room. But, they allowed us to stay in the lot for the OSU game the following day. The only complaint was the continental breakfast. It is poor, coffee was not available, just a few muffins and hard bagels. The lady attending to the area was rude and mean. People working the front desk were very attentive. Free Wifi a nice add to the evening.

The room was large,clean,quiet and comfortable. Was good location for the football game at OSU. Go Bucks! Parking lot was part of the lot connected with the Convention Center. Spaces were very small. There was a 10.00 charge for parking and we were later told we could have parked in the Convention Center area for another dollar. Not much for breakfast. Muffins,tea,coffee and juice. I would stay here again. I'm just saying,be prepared. Everyone was pleasant it was clean,and there were NO BEDBUGS! I looked everywhere.

I stayed at the Red Roof in Nationwide Arena for a few days in September 2010. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the rooms were nice. Parking was across the street on Nationwide Blvd. and $10 a day. It was fine although a bit inconvenient to try and dodge cars to get back to the hotel (although I understand that parking in downtown is difficult). The continental breakfast was more of a grab and go with juice, muffins, danishes and bagels. There is also flavored coffee available all day in the lobby which was nice to come back to. Overall a pretty nice stay especially for the price in downtown Columbus.

We were downtown for a convention so the location was perfect and the value was great! We were within a few minutes walking distance from our meeting.The staff was friendly, helpful, and courteous at check in. We had convenient parking at a reasonable rate. The rooms felt clean -- I was surprised to see laminate flooring in the room which felt so much crisper and cleaner than some hotels with their dirty feeling and smelling carpet. (There was a carpet that the bed sat on so you had something warm to put your feet on when you got up in the morning). The continental breakfast was adequate. My only complaint is that the bed was firm and I am used to a softer pillow-top mattress at home, therefore I had problems sleeping.

I originally chose this hotel because it was $60-$80 dollars cheaper then hotels almost directly across the street. I am so happy I did because not only was the price better but the rooms were fantastic! This hotel completely changed my opinion on Red Roof Inns. Not that I had a bad opinion but always viewed them as your average weekend hotel for a business trip....gets the job done but nothing to brag about. Well, I was so happy with my lodging at this facility that I am writing my first review ever....(and I travel about once a month or more) The front desk staff was the BEST service I have had and the rooms were surprisingly contemporary, spacious and new. I was very happy about the cleanliness and aesthetics. I was even happier about the free wifi, microwave and refrigerator. As a fitness professional this was huge as I like to pack healthy snacks, meals, etc,. and had the perk to do so. I had stayed at Ritz Carltons and Renaissance's within the past 6 weeks and they didn't even provide the fridge, microwave and free wifi amenities. If you couldn't already tell I would definitely recommend this hotel and was extremely happy with the hotel I had chosen.

I stayed at the downtown Columbus Red Roof Inn last weekend, and was very pleased with the quality of the room (especially the bedding), the free continental breakfast, and the great value. Everything was immaculate, some niceties were provided with the room, and the staff was very professional. My only criticism; the coffee provided in the room could be better quality.
