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....

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.

This hotel is the closest in walking distance to Ohio Stadium for game days, when everything on campus is packed. I had a Premium King room, which was clean and comfortable. Pam at the front desk is always helpful in making reservations and with checkout for these Ohio State football games.

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...

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.
