The worse hotel we have ever been

The beds did smell like urine, the whole room was filthy and did reek. the carpet was filthy and also the Microwave. In the bathroom shower was a used soap and their litter still there. It has not been cleaned at all. The AC was broken and blew out hot air at times. We didn't stay there and got back to our car and drove away and we will never go back to this Hotel

Horrible Place

Disgusting is the best way to describe it. Dirty everything. This is a $50/night motel.

Red Roof Inn stay

The hotel wasn't anything special, but it was accommodating enough. If I had any wishes, it would be for more parking places. I had a little difficulty when returning from business dinner both nights finding a parking place close to the door. For the price, it was fine though. The only deceiving part is, this is not really close to the fairgrounds, it is miles away on Interstate 71. I'm not sure why it says fairgrounds because it's not all that close.

Never again

This hotel by far was the dirtiest place I have ever stayed. Linens had stains (including the towels and wash clothes), torn wall paper, vomit in the parking lot. It was all a mess.

Roadtrip stay.

Decent hotel for the price. Close to a lot of restaurants and not too far from downtown Columbus.

Typical for Columbus, OH.

There was nothing wrong with this hotel, but there wasn't anything worth noting as special. Tube TV, so-so beds, flickering lights, stained bathtub. Water Pressure was good, which doesnt always happen at a Red Roof Inn type of Hotel. I happen to categorize the Red Roof Inn as more of a 2-star hotel like Super 8 or Motel 6, rather than a 3-star Hotel, like a Holiday Inn or Radisson. I feel robbed of the $70/night I paid to stay in this hotel.

Not what was expected

My son and I were in Columbus for a weekend. This hotel is not in a good location ( a bit frightening to be exact!) Not far from OSU which is where we were attending a couple of events and a great price, it sounded like a great place to stay. Not so much! The room smelled horrible and the air conditioner blew out warm air even when set on high cool. The front desk staff was nice and the room was clean (despite the stench...) All in all, I don't think this will be a place that we will stay again.
