“Fabulous! I got more than what I paid for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2011

I didn't have alot of extra money so we had to go with a more economically priced hotel. I couldn't believe how nice the people were that worked there! If we had any needs what so ever we just asked and with in a few minutes we had someone at our door! I expected to have to run around or call a few times at least wait a 1/2 hour but that was not the case at all. I was very pleased and the family that was with me (who are hard to please) were very pleased as well. I will be going there again next year! Loved the price and the service, beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean and the hotel was near everything. Also when we had to cut our trip a day early we got a prompt refund and a great attitude from the clerk she didn't make me feel bad at all ....Wonderful experiance for some really exhausted people!

I liked that the Red Roof Inn was close to Ohio State and that it was inexpensive. However, the hotel is close to two major roads so the traffic noise was loud in the room. The alarm clock in the room didn't work. The girl at the front desk was friendly, but couldn't tell me where my room was located, so I needed to drive around the hotel to find it.

I had a wonderful stay while visiting this Red Roof. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the property and the surrounding area. They gave us tips on streets to avoid due to the Basketball Championship Games that were being held in town that weekend. The front desk agent even called to make sure our room was to our liking. The room was very clean and the bed was comfy.

I am confident that I will seek out a Red Roof for all my travels.

Stayed here while taking my mother for a 2nd opinion @ Ohio State , Room was clean, bed was comfy, staff were polite and helpful. Great restaurant across the road Cafe Kabul I believe great gryos and rice. Overall for the money you cant beat this place plus they give a hospital discount. Clean and safe.

We stayed here due to the closeness of the Shottenstien Center/concert. We really wanted to be able to walk to the concert, which we were able to, but the front desk was very sketchy on even how to get there where there was a sidewalk. Most everyone staying there this night had the same plan, it was for the Justin Bieber concert, so I would have expected them to even have maybe a small map for people. We did finally get some correct directions from the manager I believe, but it was much longer walk than the route we took home(by chance). The hotel is very old and marginally clean. Beds were not very comfortable and only one ice machine was working for the whole hotel, so if you didn't catch it at the right time, you just didn't get any ice. No frig's in room. Doubt I would stay here again.

We were in town for the Justin Bieber concert and wanted to stay close to the concert. As soon as we opened the door the smell would almost suffocate you, the carpet looked dirty, the whole place just gave me the creeps. Definitely a waste of $97
