Red Roof Double Bills
September 05, 2018

Beware Booked via Travelocity and both Red Roof and Travelocity billed me. Proved via credit card statement. You think either one will credit me back? Not helpful at all. Travelocity emails every few days and claims to be working on it.

Good hotel
September 03, 2018

The hotel was easy to access, clean nice room...quiet. We had a nice up to date room... great shower... drains worked well.. nice TV with guide for channels. Nice breakfast included with stay.. The hotel is priced well for being in downtown columbus and close to short north. If anything, the front desk process of checking in and out takes a long time..and reservationists seem to get confused in the process.

Great visit

We had at great time visiting matsuri con and relaxing at the hotel. It was very comfortable and Jamey Galloway was very awesome in the morning handling breakfast. She is so kind and funny. 10/10 would like to stay at this hotel again

Excellent night!

What a beautiful experience! We had a terrible night before we arrived at the Red Roof Plus. Someone had body-slammed our door at the Motel 6, trying to break in. We left there and the amazing Alex who worked the front desk at Red Roof Plus upgraded us to a premium room so we could be close to him in the lobby. We were so shook up upon arrival. Alex escorted us to our room. The room was lovely, so clean, beautiful and well-appointed. There was a premium box in the refrigerator with snacks, juice and water. The towels are thick and fluffy, the beds so comfortable with a selection of soft and firm pillows, and everything was pristinely clean. We are so grateful and will come here every time we stay in Columbus. Thank you for taking such good care of us Alex and Red Roof Plus.

Good enough

Nothing fancy, that’s for sure. But the room was newer and clean, and comfortable if a little snug. I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time in the room, but it was just fine for an inexpensive place to crash for the night.
