We stayed at this hotel on a previous trip and enjoyed our stay. This stay was also wonderful . The evening as well as the day desk attendants were friendly and offered several good dining suggestions. The hotel is located right off the highway; we didn't have any problems traveling to the site. The room was clean and, unlike many... More

We had a great experience at this hotel and were surprised at how charming and clean the rooms are. The staff was polite and helpful. Although we did not use it, the fire pit is a great feature that sets this hotel apart. Perfect place to hang after the football game. Highly recommend this hotel.

After 4 yrs of our daughter attending OSU I finally had opportunity to stay at this hotel. I will admit I had made a reservation at the Marriott but when our plans had us arriving a day earlier I found I wasn't able to add that night to my Marriott reservation.

This Red Roof Plus at Ohio State is in a great location. What drew me here was the location, and the reviews from other travelers sounded good.

For the price compared to the surrounding area offerings, this is a home run. Excellent location with nearby grocery, food, entertainment. Can't get any closer to the university. Room was clean. Staff was super friendly. It's a no frills kind of place, but was perfect for what we needed (a place to crash close to campus). One negative. People kept... More

I booked this hotel due to it's proximity to campus and recent reviews from other travelers. The hotel has recently remodeled rooms which are very nice. The bed was comfortable, the wood floors are great and the furnishings are up to date. Having a microwave, refrigerator and a single cup coffee maker in the room was an added plus since... More

Nice, very clean place to sleep. Room was comfortable and efficient, though smaller then we are used to. Very quiet. Outside grounds had a sitting area and fire pit. Front desk clerk was patient and helpful. Restaurants within walking distance. Good place, recently remodeled- would recommend.

Room was on the small side but everything looked updated. It was clean, shower good, towels average and had a safe in the room. Don't normally like outside doors in this style of inn but it was OK and quiet. Staff was friendly and Taxi service was prompt when called. Location was great and an easy walk back from concert.
