Room was clean. Clean comfy bed. Nice laminate wood flooring. Nice flat screen TV. Bathroom was small but clean. Toilet was wobbly. It was strange that there was no kind of sitting chair in the room just a desk chair. Lobby was no friils and kinda dingy. Carpet on stairs was dirty. Outside of hotel no up kept very well.... More

We had tickets to the Preseason Cleveland Cav's game at Ohio State University. Never been to Columbus before and we were only there for one night. The Red Roof Inn made us feel welcome and gave us all the information we need to find jeans for my son, find somewhere to eat that would be showing the Blue Jays game... More

Sleeping area was clean and updated, but the bathroom needed major updating. The floor was cracked. The towels were dirty/stained. Very hard to get your car to the back parking lot of you have a larger vehicle. I had to go down to get wi-fi code. I am glad my family did not come with me as I would not... More

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
