We stayed here for more than a week and first the good things (we had a superior room): - a mini-fridge. Perfect if you have food intolerances and need to store your own food. - close to Kroger (again, convenient if you have food intolerances) - the room was pretty good except for some things (more on that later). -...

I went to Columbus to attend the Country Living Fair and visit my son at OSU. The location was perfect. Because I was travelling alone, I was nervous at first because it was a MOTEL---the door to the rooms open to the outside, not a hotel hallway. When Ryan checked me in on Friday night, he was nice enough to... More

I experienced two problems during my stay that were not resolved. I noticed the tub faucet dripping and complained about it after the first night. Two nights later, nothing had been done to resolve that problem. Then upon checkout, the front desk refused to provide a receipt for my stay. These experiences demonstrate poor service from every department.

The room was clean and had a disinfectant smell. It was a very narrow room with two beds, a mini frig and a microwave. We parked in front of our door which was nice.It is a three story motel with all outside doors. We were asked for money by a woman as soon as we got out of our car.... More

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Red Roof Plus @ OSU. We are happy that your room was clean and that your stay turned out to be fine. During the OSU games, all hotels around the campus area usually increase their rates because of the proximity to the stadium. On your next trip to the area, we hoped... More

My father was up for surgery in local hospital. Provided a comfortable stay for the week. No frills motel. Daily made service. I felt safe here. Close to local eating establishments. Not much convenience services other that free coffee. A good choice if your on a budget.

The location is walkable for a Buckeye football or basketball game (about 25 minutes for football and less for basketball). Make sure you get assurance you can keep your car parked in their lot if you are not staying night of the game.
