Everytime that I have been in Coulumbus for the past nine years, I have always stayed here. Whether I am here for a weekend with the boys, shopping, a meeting, or some type of show or concert, I usually always pick The Red Roof Plus, because of it's location and walking distance to most of the events going on downtown. Location can not be beat. It is super nice for a Red Roof. It has been very clean and the staff is always friendly. Parking can be purchased just across the street, although the lot can get full pretty fast sometimes. If it is full, you can park in the attached, for pay, lot, but I have always encountered some type of hassle from the attendant at that lot when I tell them that i paid for paking at the hotel. It can be embarassing,but the past few times I have not had a problem, mostly do to the fact of the new meters that you pay and swipe cards with. Although during prime time events through the year, the lot fills up fast, and could have more spaces for guests, It's not the hotels fault. I do plan on returning everytime that I am in Columbus, and I am always satisfied with this hotel.

Worst Hotel I have stayed in
July 09, 2018

My husband and I stayed there for a business trip June 29-July1. I have an entire list of items to address so I will start with the room. The room was really outdated, we were given a room with two full-size beds, the mattresses were horribly uncomfortable and every time I or my husband went to move we just about fell off the side of the bed from the poor quality of the mattress. There were no extra little toiletries like usual hotels, the tub in the shower was so narrow and not flat in such a way that my husband and I almost fell several times when taking showers, it was a balancing act and I could not relax due to having to make sure I had good footing to not fall. If you dropped the soap, good luck picking it up as you just about have to hold on to the walls and slowly bend over to grab it. The room was really dark and dingy and the floors were some kind of half carpet half weird vinyl/tile looking surface. The TV worked but the universal remote for it was not good, you had to keep pressing buttons and pointing at the tv to get it to do anything which was really frustrating. They served complimentary continental breakfast which was ok but slim choices. Then there is the parking. We had to park across the street in a gated parking lot for $10 per day which was full often at night and walk all the way across the street to even get into the hotel. I know it is downtown but there needs to be some kind of solution. There was a parking lot right next door but no one was allowed to use it. The people there seemed nice but I will never stay at another Red Roof in again! I was not impressed at all!

Family Fun
July 05, 2018

I was in Columbus to make a surprise visit with family. We chose the Red Roof Inn because it was very inexpensive for our one day trip. We had a great time with family. Because of the downtown location of the hotel, we were able to take a ride up High Street and seen how much the OSU area has changed over the many years. We even took a stroll on the River Walk while listening to music at the Food Fest. I have to say a special thanks to Stephanie S. and Demetrius. Great service!!!!!!!!

Great location
July 01, 2018

My friend and I were in town for a concert. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The location is perfect and the price is great. We were able to walk to dinner and the concert venue easily. The room was minimal, but we were only there one night and that's all we needed. It was nice and clean and we would stay again. Thanks!

Would not stay here again
June 25, 2018

The location of this hotel is great, but I don’t think I would stay there again. The staff seemed to be very disorganized and it showed in many aspects of our stay. Upon arrival for check in, there was no place to park, even temporarily. We had to “trespass” park in an adjoining lot to check in. There was a long line at the check in desk. It took over 20 minutes to get to the desk with two clerks working. One of the two clerks took nearly 15 minutes with one guest checking in. We were given keys to our room and parked our vehicle in the only available parking – across the street in a lot costing $10 per day. Luckily, I got the very last parking space available in the designated Red Roof Inn area. What other guests behind me in line did, I don’t know. We went to our room to find a wheelchair accessible room with a roll-in shower, which is not what we reserved. The bed had been made, but obviously the room hadn’t been cleaned. There were food crumbs on the un-swept tile floor, spilled juice in the bottom of the refrigerator and an opened Kroger cheese and cracker tray on the kitchenette counter. In the bathroom, opened soap and shampoo containers were on the uncleaned counter. We were on our way back to the front desk to request another room when the housekeeping staff approached us in the hallway. “Did they put you in that room? That room isn’t clean. I didn’t release that room yet.” She had us move our things into a new room she had just cleaned and went with us to the front desk to change our pass keys. Problem solved, but this never should have happened. The next morning at continental breakfast, the space was not well prepped and was disorganized. I had to ask for napkins as there were none out. The container of fresh fruit had no serving utensils or dishes. Plastic knives were available at one service area, but not the other. The muffins were on a large plastic tray half covered with plastic wrap with no tongs to pick them up. There was a case box of hard boiled eggs in plastic bags sitting unrefrigerated on the counter the entire time we were in the breakfast area. Obviously forgotten by the server. The coffee was good, but everything else was not. The next morning we drove to a local diner for breakfast. A convenient location can’t make up for the other obvious failings of this hotel. I would not stay there again and would not recommend.
