My family stayed here Thursday until Friday. It was neat and clean! Also, in walking distance to many places. Our youngest Son players football at LaSalle and he now has his third championship ring! #54

After having such a bad experience with Motel 6, I had to find a place that allowed pets. Red Roof Inn was the answer! It's clean, cozy and well-lit. The property is on a busy intersection but it is completely fenced and there is enough grassy area for my big Labs to get a little early morning exercise and have... More

Pam was more than accommodating. Our first OSU game ever. We arrived early on game day and Pam went out of her way to get us settled in for the game. Room 119 was great, too. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Walking distance from Ohio State University campus. We were able to check in very early, the rooms were clean but small. Not much floor space. Overall I would stay again. Good for 2 person stay in standard king room

For an overnight before joining up with family it had everything we needed. They took good care of the cellphone I left on the nightstand, calling my home phone and had it wrapped up for me when I returned that afternoon. I will probably be back next time I visit my daughter, a student at Ohio State.

As reflected by the price, the hotel is extremely no-frills. You pay for the room and that's all you get. The basic room has no extra amenities at all, and you can upgrade to get hair dryer, coffeemaker, fridge, etc. I was there for 5 nights and the room got a little dirty, but housekeeping only did the smallest tasks...

I booked a room here at the last minute so I could attend a nearby technology conference. I'm used to staying at the Columbus Convention Center hotels, so I was a little apprehensive about "stepping down" to a Red Roof. My concerns were basically unwarranted. As others have noted, the room was freshly renovated, and I really like the decor.... More

The rooms had been upgraded. The site has a LARGE area to walk pets, has a pet waste station and an outside fire pit. Very user friendly!! It's fenced in for the most part and is easily accessible. The on-site team members (Pam & Vanessa) were very friendly.
