The bed was comfortable, the front desk staff were friendly and engaging and the many classic car enthusiasts staying in the inn provided a great diversion. The towels could be bigger and better and the other supplies more plentiful, particularly at the unusually high price.

This was not a corporate property. They did not want to honor reservations from Cyber Monday (very good rates). It took quite a bit of fuss after a 9 hour drive to get this straightened out for my room and the other room reserved at the same rates. The room was fairly dirty and the bathroom smelled pretty bad.

Don't be that fool unless you like: lukewarm showers, dirty bathroom towels, construction dust, no public restroom, no secure internet, no ice, disconnected room phone (no receptacle to plug into), and dirty room. We stayed 30 minutes and booked it. Low price yes, but beyond minimal standards absolutely.

We booked our reservation at Red Roof Inn Columbus - Ohio State Fairgrounds primarily because it was the midpoint of our drive from Upstate New York to Nashville, Tennessee. The ease of access from I-71, recent property renovations, the favorable Trip Advisor rating, a Long John Silver's restaurant within a 1/2 mile, reasonable rates and the amenities that were featured...

The rooms were dirty when we checked in - . We were there for 4 days and had no hot water 95% of the time. Card keys did not work. Holes in the walls, lights burnt out, TVs were not working. Toilet paper not replaced.

I chose this hotel because of the location and price. And, I guess you get what you pay for. The facility is still being re-modeled. That wouldn't have been a problem except they did nothing to make up for the inconvenience. The staff, though efficient in checking us in, were not very friendly or welcoming. A recognition of what was... More

The place is clean and staff is warm. The internet connection is fast and stable. We stayed at this hotel before we moved our new apartment. The location is a little bit far from the downtown. The only cons is the sound of the fridge. They should buy new silent ones, we turned it off while sleeping.

The first floor of this Red Roof is still being finished (and as mentioned in other reviews), so still no ice machine, but our room had a mini-fridge and microwave. The re-furbished room had a flatscreen TV and wood-looking floors in the main area, with carpeting by the beds. Everything looked, and smelled, fresh and clean. Beds were comfortable. The... More

The hotel room was clean, but they were in the middle of updating the hotel when we stayed there (Oct. 2015). The lobby had a strange smell to it, but you couldn't smell it in the room. The staff was friendly, and even though at night the area the hotel was in didn't look too friendly, the next morning it... More
