TripAdvisor Ratings

Great Experience
October 02, 2019

The hotel is conveniently located to anything you might need. The staff at the hotel's front desk were extremely helpful on several occasions. Room was clean/adequately stocked. Continental Breakfast was fine, although it could be open a little earlier than 7 a.m. but either way staff/selection were fine. Beds were comfy and an assortment of pillows. Only complaint was the AC unit was loud and the hotel did not have ear plugs. Would be a super perk if they at least sold them.

Great staff

The staff was extremely helpful, accommodating, and went above and beyond to meet my needs. Monica and Haley actually provided me with chapstick that the hotel didnt provide. They treated me like family! I really appreciated it!

Weekend getaway
September 02, 2019

We came to Columbus for the weekend to see a buckeye's game. First of a you had to park across the street from the hotel. I was not a fan of that. Hotel was okay, staff friendly, and the breakfast was what any hotel breakfast is. Had to call twice because the toilet wouldn't flush. Would probably look at staying somewhere else next time.

Spend a few more bucks

Generally I an not a complainer and I take no issues with a hotel that is a little worn as long as it is fresh and maintained. I was in town one night for business and this hotel was walking distance from our venue so that was great. There were a lot of places to eat close by as well so that was nice. My beds were made and the sheets seemed fresh but I don't think anything in the room had been wiped down in months. I am not talking about dust on a picture frame I am talking about sticky spilled food/beverages on the desk/table. The wooden parts of the floor were totally sticky so I was only imagining what the carpet was really like and the only time I took my shoes off was when my feet were on the bed. The staff was pleasant at the front desk but I wanted to laugh at the tip envelope that the cleaning staff left on the dirty desk with a note that said "please drop at front desk" with her name signed on it. The water pressure was warm and hot but the tv felt tiny and I cannot understand why the parking lot would be across the street with no crosswalk in sight. Over all I would stay again if there was no where else provided but given a choice for a very few dollars more I would be across the street at the Drury. Sorry Red Roof... this time you let us down, but at least you were pleasant.

Our Stay @ Red Roof PLUS+ Columbus Downtown-Convention Center 111 E Nationwide Blvd, Colu
August 23, 2019

My wife and I had to go to Columbus, Ohio to see an eye doctor and we stayed at the Red Roof Inn Plus in Downtown Columbus. We booked the room through for $ 132.18. For small town folks like us is a high amount of money. Here is a list of things we found unacceptable: 1. The sink didn’t hold water. 2. Light above bed was out. 3. The chair was wobbly. 4. Noisy air conditioner. 5. Blood spot on sheets. 6. No NBC on TV. 7. No channel guide. 8. Not enough electrical outlets. Had to unplug radio to use medical devices. 9. Toilet too low and no handrail. 10. Shower was hard to get into. 11. Had to pay $ 18.00 for parking on top of hotel bill. 12. They also charged me $ 10.00 on top of the $ 18.00 I paid for parking. 13. They charged me $ 1.61 for a safe in the room that I didn’t use. I recommend people use a different hotel when you come to Columbus, Ohio.
