Got their and told the female associate at the counter that I have 2 dogs and their a pet friendly motel. The next day I woke up with the blinds open and house keeping saw me and don’t once knock or ask to be let in to change towels, only did they enter when I went to go get lunch they went into my room and my dogs ran out. When I came back they blamed me and said that I didn’t tell them that I had 2 dogs. Mind you the day before I got here I called and made sure 100% that thy allow dogs and they called the hotel to see and they said that was fine. Only to be a problem and blame me that I didn’t tell them which is bs. Will NOT be coming back again and giving them my money.

Niiiiiice experience

I come from China and have stayed Red Roof for nearly 2 months.I really appreciate for the helpful service they provided for me!The all staff in this motel are sooooo warm-hearted!I appreciate everyone who works in the Red Roof.I am so grateful for the room service and the front desk.Last week, my roommate lost her package.However, we all didn't know how to contact with customer service(Poor English hahahaha).It's Ryan,a clerk at the front desk,help my roommate to call the customer service and logistics company.With his help,my roommate solved her problem.In addition,Maggie,Kristen and Francis also help us a lot.We just like a family=)

The service staff of the hotel is superb

I live in Room 325. Since I am from China, my spoken English is not very good, and I often encounter some problems. Every time I find the front desk to help, the front desk is very enthusiastic! Especially Ryan. Recently, my package was not delivered for some reason. I didn't understand the manual service. I asked RYAN for help. He patiently helped me to make a number of manual service calls, help me find out the reasons, tell me not to worry, I am really touched in a foreign country! Thank you, thank you RYAN, I took up his working time for almost 20 minutes, but his attitude is super good!

Decent enough

We spent two nights at the Red Roof+ while visiting Columbus. The hotel is close to the University, but a bit of a way from the town centre. We used Uber to get to the bars we wanted to visit. We could not get into the room until the stated time, although we were able to leave some luggage at the front desk. The front desk staff were not the most friendly, and seemed put out when we needed anything. There is no breakfast, but coffee is available in the lobby. The clerk seemed a bit put out when I told her that the dispenser of vanilla creamer was several months past its expiry date. The room itself was comfortable enough. We had rooms on the ground floor, and parked our car in front. The rooms had coffee. No fridge in the room, though. We cooled beer using water and ice in the sink. The hotel was fine. I would consider staying again.

Pretty nice!

If you need a fridge or microwave...nice comfy beds...stay here. A little noisy on the backside by the road. Has a coffee pot for fresh coffee and managers were very nice. Coffee in the office. Also has and elevator if you don't want to take the stairs.
