The staff was very nice and courteous. Everything needed was in the room and convenient. Location was great for me only had to drive about a mile away from my conference.

I stayed at this hotel in a room with my sister when we visited the area for my brother's graduation from OSU. The location of the hotel is great but that was basically the only positive. I wasn't expecting the hotel to be fancy but I was expecting it to be clean and I was disappointed. Upon entering our room for the first time my sister found a dirty men's sock on the floor. Needless to say, I assume this means the carpet was not vacuumed between guests and it doesn't seem the housekeeping staff was very thorough. When I pulled back my blankets to get in bed I also found a tiny little worm wiggling around in my sheets. That's right, there was A WORM IN MY BED! I even took a video of it with my cell phone because I was in such disbelief. It was disgusting.

The next day when the housekeeping staff cleaned our room they left the comforters crumpled up on the floor rather than put them back on the beds when they made them and they must have let a gigantic fly in because we had to get rid of one upon returning to the room. At least there were no worms in my bed the second night (that I saw).

Overall I would say this hotel is conveniently located but absolutely disgusting.

I work at the University and at the time, I was driving an hour back and forth for work. During a snowstorm, I was able to stay at OSU Red Roof Inn on short notice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean. Excellant stay.

I have never stayed at a Red Roof Inn before, but I found this one to be comparable (and smaller) than other 2 star motels like Sleep Inn, Days Inn. The lobby is sparsely furnished, with a GREAT coffee/cappuccino machine. The staff were pleasant and professional. The doors to the rooms are located outside, motel-style. The neighborhood seemed safe though even though it says on the inside of the door to lock both deadbolt and regular locks. When I walked in, I was surprised by how small the room was. I got the room with the one King size bed. If you want something bigger, I would suggest requesting 2 Double beds since there was no way 2 doubles could fit into my room. The water pressure was on the milder side and the bathroom light was linked to the loud fan so you couldn't turn on one without the other.

It was HOT the entire night since the automatic radiator was on and it kept on making clinking noises throughout the night. I had to turn on the A/C even though it was 20 degrees outside..such a waste of energy. I didn't notice that the bed was extraordinarily comfortable but the sheets were clean with a thin blanket (not down).

I was surprised also to find a 20% tax on my bill, from county to state to city tax. I would not stay here for leisure. Red Roof Inn was simple and did its job but did not have any of the extra amenities or comfort that a higher starred hotel would have. Be aware of what you pay for!

I stay fairly frequently at this hotel since my son is attending OSU. Usually I am there when there is a game or school event and the hotel is booked full. Even under the strain of a full house it's a pleasant experience; but it was even more so when the hotel was not full.
Front desk is very helpful, rooms comfortable and you can't beat the price or location to OSU.
