I made a last minute reservation with my daughter for one night . When we arrived the room configuration we had reserved was sold out. I really appreciate JJ at the front desk who handled this so well. He went out of his way to make sure we were happy despite the last minute change. This could have been a... More

Our team appreciates your comments about your recent stay. J.J. especially wants me to thank you for the compliments you paid him regarding his customer service. Our room rates are a very good value and usually will be well below the other downtown hotels. Our $10.00 per night parking fee will also be far below what the other hotels are... More

I arrived in the middle of the night and Denny was more than a pleasure to deal with at check-in. My room was clean and spacious. It was a simple enough room for my sleeping requirements. They did charge me an additional $60, but a quick phone call cleared that up. It was nothing to overreact about. This hotel is... More

This red roof was very clean and they had a decent location. Only complaint was the parking, went to a late concert and parking was 10 bucks across the street, very confusing to first timers. Parking was overcrowded.

Thanks for your review following your stay at our Red Roof Plus+. My apologies for the $10.00 parking charge. You will find that our parking fee is far less than any of the other hotels in downtown Columbus.

Let me say, first of all, that this hotel is staffed by some of the nicest people you would want to meet and they have very nice matresses. Two really good things. On the other hand, the place is just plain dirty---black mold in the bathroom, filthy telephone, sticky elevator buttons, debris in the hallway. It is also LOUD. Doors... More

My stay was very good. I was here for a week for a conference. The hotel is in a great location, right across he street from the conference center and not too far from other attractions, restaurants, as well as the free Connector bus. The room was very nice. Staff here are excellent. Great affordable price as well.

Thank you so much for your favorable comments. Our location, in such a nice downtown district, is within easy walking distance to many, many venues. Whether for business or entertainment pleasure.

An affordable hotel very close to the convention center (2 minute walk if you go in the back entrance). The room is what you would expect from a budget hotel. But the service makes this place great.

We picked this hotel due to its location. It was a nice hotel. Rooms were clean and nice. And the hotel service was very good. It is in very close proximity to the convention center. Parking is across the street which was sort of strange and requires crossing a 4 lane road to get back and forth. Hotel staff was... More

If the floor hadn't had a sticky residue, the room would have been perfect. Powerful AC. Comfortable pillows. The shower was nice. I liked the key cards, they're the kind you just tap to the door and don't have to swipe. But the sticky floors...... Would not recommend
