overnight stay for event at convention center

Would recommend Thu, Oct 15, 2015
I stayed here for a business trip for an event held at the Columbus Convention Center. It wasn't too far from downtown, yet far enough to not pay downtown prices. Staff was very friendly. My room was clean and updated. I will be staying here again.

Overnight for Wife's hospital stay

Would recommend Sun, Sep 20, 2015
I stayed at this Red Roof Inn while my wife was at the James Cancer Center for an operation. The location was close which was good. No Pool / exercise room / free breakfast (there is a McDonalds across the street) I got set up for extremely late arrival, and was upgraded to a Plus room. when I asked for a first floor room because I can't walk up steps very well. I had a little trouble figuring out the air conditioning / heater, but I was too tired to ask for help. Ii would stop again

Disappointing

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 30, 2015
This is a very basic hotel. The first day they never cleaned our room and left the floor dirty. I has to ask for more coffee/sugar. No tea was offered. The front desk personnel was nice. Cleaning staff was terrible

Nice room

Would recommend Sat, Jun 13, 2015
I spent 4 nights in a King room with a microwave and mini-refrigerator. The room was very clean. I did not notice any bugs. The tv was a nice size flat screen. The cable was basic, but did have HBO. The staff was friendly. The hotel is within walking distance to fast-food and sit down restaraunts, as well as a grocery store. The hotel was close to the highway and Riverside Methodist Hospital. The hotel offers coffee, but no breakfast. There is no pool or fitness room.

Good price, good hotel

Would recommend Sat, Jan 17, 2015
First of all, the price is very good. The hotel is very clean and in a convenient location. It has as least two supermarkets and several restaurants around it. It only takes five minutes to walk there. Very close to the OSU campus, about 5 minutes by car. It's about 18-20 minutes driving from the airport. The front desk was very friendly. It also provided wifi.
