We stayed a weekend, in the middle of a renovation. I was pleasantly surprised at the new floor--carpet (tiles) only around the beds; the rest of the floor was imitation wood--something you could actually get -clean-! I wish all motels would move over to cleanable floors.

The new sink was pretty; the furniture fresh. Non-smoking with a $200 charge if you let someone smoke in your room--very nice; no smell at all.

The price jumps around according to what Ohio State is doing, but when they aren't doing too much, it's a very good value. We've stayed here four or five times; the people are friendly. It's not the Ritz, but it's got what I want.

We are stopping in Columbus on a road trip. We read about the Short North district and wanted to stay near by. This is hotel is very close to the very cool Short North district (5-10min walk). Hotel staff is super friendly and helpful. Hotel is incredibly clean, new fixtures and rooms, and well priced. Even has HBO, free wifi. Highly recommended.

As stated in other reviews, the location is outstanding if you are interacting with OSU in any way.
A simple version of the Red Roof with no frills. They are currently remodeling the rooms and I had the good fortune of getting one that was recently remodeled. It was obviously clean with a good twist IMO, hardwood floors and rugs. So much more sanitary in the long run. Nice choice in their remodeling.

When they are finished with renovations it will be a very good value as a 2 star property. At least for the next couple of years.

The staff was courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been remodeled.
