Better than avg Red Roof

Nothing special or unique. But close to OSU and the hospital. Cheap. Not noisy. One level. Standard room was okay. Clean. A/C worked fine. TV was decent. King bed. Two choices of pillows present. Front desk staff very pleasant and helpful. Did have issue with internet, but was able to connect to the network so probably was my laptop? Internet was free. No surprises on bill. Easy registration, easy check out as well.

I come to Rock On The Range (now called Sonic Temple Fest) every year but this was my first time staying at this hotel. It was perfect! Perfect location, perfect staff, and very clean! I will definitely be back next year!

My girlfiend and I stayed here for several nights recently while visiting her children who live in Columbus. The hotel is not great, just okay. They claim a recent renovation and did make some updates, but someone needs to tell them that painting over the old fluorescent light fixtures in the rooms does not cut it. The AC was unpredictable, sometimes it would run heat, sometimes cold air, despite our never changing its settings. The TV remote was likewise unpredictable and worn out. Towels were thing and cheap. Basically, nothing impressed me. When my girlfriend arrived she found out that the elevator had broken down and was not expected to be repaired for quite some time. Now this was an issue for me as I was meeting her there at the end of a work trip where I was carrying about 150 lbs of luggage in total. Which I had to carry up to the third floor. Major pain in the . . . back. I wrote hte manager a letter and his only response was to say yes the elevator was broken and when I was ready to check out come get him and he would help me get my luggage down. Not much of a consideration for the hassle. (NOTE, I did not call him as we checked out on Saturday morning and I doubted he was there so I blew it off). Beause of hte elevator issue, housekeeping was also an issue. The first day they just stopped by and asked us if we needed anything and then never came back. The second day I asked them to clean and they did a so so job. After that it got better, but one could see that part of the issue was the time being spent getting supplies up to the thrid floor by hand. They were also dropping the linens over the balcony into a big in the parking lot, which they understandably missed about 1/2 the time. The final issue is that it seems that there are a number of rooms rented there to long time (Section 8????) local residents. And there were some loud arguments and "interesting" characters on several occasions over our 4 day stay. Overall, I'll spend a few dollars more next time and stay somewhere else.

I do a lot of sports coverage at Ohio State, and I have stayed at many hotels in the area but this one by far is the best for close proximity to where I do my coverage at. It is very nice, affordable, and the staff is outstanding. Everyone here is so friendly and accommodating right down to the maids who worked very hard to make sure you get everything you need and have a great stay.

It is so close to Ohio State you can You can walk there, including the football stadium the softball fields, and the field hockey field which is practically right across the street I stay here so much that everybody knows me and my puppy dog Brutus. Another good reason I like to stay here is it is very pet friendly and when I leave him in the room I do not have to worry about anything. There are plenty of restaurants close by with and walking and driving distance and if if you really like the buckeyes there is buckeye corner right next-door

This was the best stay experience that I have had there. The stuff was wonderful and the room was perfect can't wait to stay there again. The room was perfectly cleaned and the beds was the most comfortable I have ever slept on.
