This is an ok place that we picked for it's closeness to the University. It is easy to find and was right off the highway. The room was updated and had a flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge. It appeared clean but it did have a smell, kind of musty. The best part of the room were the beds. They...

Check in was easy and the front desk worker was pleasant. The rooms are easily accessed by either stairs or an elevator. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. They offer WI-fi and it actually worked, unlike many other hotels we have stayed at recently. This is not a luxury hotel, but for the price it covers everything...

This inn is very convenient to the Greater Columbus area. The OSU campus is within walking distance and downtown is ten minuets away. The rooms are very pleasant and extremely clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Pet friendly is a big plus.

We stayed here for an Ohio State game. It was a $4 uber ride to Ohio stadium. It is walkable, but really, 4 dollars...why wouldn't you?? We were able to check in at 10 a.m which was awesome. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. We will back for Ohio State games in the future.

My husband and I spent the night of Sept. 8, 2015 at the Red Roof Plus at the Ohio University area. Check in was efficient and fast. Our room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. A packet in the refrigerator contained drinks, and snacks. The area was quiet and our stay was relaxing. We would stay there again.
