My wife and I checked in on a brutally cold night. The check in was fast & friendly but when I tried our key it didn't work.

We were happy to get in the room and see it was clean and comfy. We ate across the street at Raising Canes Chicken. There is also an Applebees. We were very surprised at the quiet rooms. Being in a college area we expected noise. Pet friendly is also a plus. Our fur baby was happy there also.

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...

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
