Nice and affordable with friendly helpful staff!! James was especially helpful! Will stay with them again. We went for the Jazz and Ribs Fest and it was about a 20 minute walk, not a bad distance at all.

Location is convenient. Surround by restaurants. Room is clean. But furniture is old and the mattress is saggy. Staff is friendly and helpful though. Need to pay for parking. It's about 11 minutes away from OSU pool.

The location of this Red Roof was ideal for going to the conference centre and the arena. The rooms were adequate the beds could use some up grading. The staff were great even when they were run off their feet it was an extremely busy weekend for the hotel.

Needed a room quickly and did not want to spend a lot. Wanted something in the downtown area.Got the reservation through Hotels.com. The place was really nice. Nothing close to what you would expect of a Red Rood Inn. They obviously purchased an existing multi-story hotel and renovated it. They did a nice job. Room was comfortable and well equipped....
