TripAdvisor Ratings

great location for doing a college visit
June 29, 2019

First thing I would say is that the location is unbeatable for doing a college visit. It literally is across the street from the athletic part of campus. Parking was easy and always a parking spot. The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. for my son and I the room was quite comfortable and served its purpose. there was not breakfast which was ok with us as we left pretty early. the area felt safe and would recommend to other in the future.

Surprisingly nice but a bit pricey too
June 27, 2019

I cannot recall the last time I stay at a Red Roof but my expectations were not super high even though I booked a "premier" room. I do have to say I was impressed but the cost was a bit ridiculous. I was there for a concert and that room was not worth $170. Even with the free drinks and snacks for booking premium. The snack included a bag of microwave popcorn that I did try to pop but the microwave was so loud and making odd noises that I cancelled it 30 seconds in. It was probably fine but made me uncomfortable. Room was clean and bed/pillows were of decent quality, though bed was a little firm. Staff was okay, not overly friendly but not rude either. Premium rooms were oddly on the first and second floors right next to the lobby area. Ended up being good as the elevator was broken and I have very heavy luggage. Vending machines were also both marked out of order and they do sell snacks in the lobby, but the lobby isn't open 24/7. There are many places you can walk to within a few minutes for food, so not the end of the world. Still a little annoying. A few small things would make this better, like separate shampoo and conditioner in the rooms. HVAC worked well but was a little loud. Didn't notice much outside noise though and curtains worked as well as most hotels in keeping out light. It's a convenient location if you have an event at the Schottenstein as walking there is super easy but I wouldn't pay that much for just an average stay.

We traveled to Columbus on business and family, just stayed one night, and this will be the ONLY time we will stay at this hotel! Room was clean, TV kept going out, black screen while watching , remote didn't work half the time . The next day we realized we had left a bag of our laundry and called asking if found, told they would check and get back with us, they asked for our phone number and would call. NO call and not for the other 2 times I called asking same question, total every other day (3 times called) no one ever called back! If they threw them out, all they had to say was " we're sorry it has been disposed of" I would have understood, but to keep telling me they would call, at least one call, would have been fine, but to keep getting the run around. I was even willing to drive back the 2 hours to get it! We will NOT be recommending this Red Roof Plus+ to anyone nor will we ever stay here again!

Better than avg Red Roof
June 06, 2019

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.

Sonic Fest

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!
