Red Roof Inn PLUS+ Columbus - The Ohio State University

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was in a very good location for us to go back and forth to convention center. Very Accessible to highway 315. The room was a little small BUT we are hardly there. Mostly to sleep. I don't have any complain at all.

The outside of the building was not impressive at all. The rooms were surprisingly better than I expected. They are very basic, no frills, but clean. Well worth the price.

This hotel is walking distance to the Schottenstein Center. Thats the reason we stayed there. The guy at the front desk could've been friendlier when we checked in but oh well.

The room was clean sign said Newley remodeled don't know about that but was clean. People screaming and very loud traffic all night, maybe office side would have been better but the side next to the road was where they put us. DID NOT SLEEP ALL NIGHT walls must have been made of paper.

Strong wifi connection, clean room, with very practical workspace. I forgot to print slides before arriving and the staff was able to let me use the hotel print service to print my slides before I left.

With the price I paid, it's a great hotel at convenient location with grocery store and dining facilities within walking distance.

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.

WE HAD A OVERNIGHT STAY HERE FOR A FRIEND'S COMMENCEMENT. DIDN'T SPENT MUCH TIME IN THE ROOM. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR. NOTHING VERY GOOD OR VERY BAD. OK FOR AN OVERNIGHT STAY.

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

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

Little disappointed how high Red Roof raised prices for weekend!

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.

Can't beat the price for the location. Clean and comfortable.

We went to see a show for my birthday in Columbus and had such a pleasant and comfortable stay at the red roof inn plus!!

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.

Very clean and pleasant room. Staff was very friendly...convenient to OSU!

We came to visit family in Columbus for Thanksgiving. This was a great place to stay. Clean, updated room. Bed was a little hard. An in-room fridge would have been nice but overall a really nice place to stay!

Feels and smells every bit like a one star motel. The bathrooms are so tiny.

Good experience. I wish I would have been told there was no refrigerator and microwave. Had a lot of food go bad.

The hotel was very nice and the fire pit outside was great got to meet a lot of people
