Jamey is Awesome

Friendly staff, inconsiderate guests
November 11, 2018

Repeat guest of 5+ years. Affordable accommodations, located close to downtown attractions. Friendly and accommodating front desk staff. Parking across the street is reasonable at only $10/night compared to other nearby overnight hotel parking options. One elevator still out of order like other guests noted. Breakfast options are limited, but free. King bed in #612 not comfortable, pillows were completely flat, but clean sheets, towels & shower/sink free of hair or grime were a plus. We used to love staying here, but since the renovations a few years ago, the hotel has paper thin walls and turned too noisy for our liking. Returned home from a miserable stay last night 11/9/18, where a youth group from the Dayton area literally ran up and down the halls, laughing and screaming, banged on doors/repeatedly slammed doors, and stomped all over on the 6th floor from 11pm-3am without any regard for other guests. I would have called the front desk to complain, but the room phone was covered in a sticky substance I wasn’t willing to touch. You win some, you lose some. Most stays have been fine here, but If the hotel is busy, your stay may be impacted by the commotion due to loud hallway noise. It isn’t the hotel’s fault for rude or disrespectful adults not watching their middle school kids, but keep in mind that you can hear everything happening outside your door all night. The hot pink sign on main entrance that states to be quiet when exiting the elevator because guests are sleeping should have been a red flag upon our arrival.

Losing Sleep
November 10, 2018

Warning! This hotel does not have onsite parking. You have to pay $10 a night to park across the street (four lanes of traffic). The location is great. It’s on the outskirts of downtown Columbus and a fifteen minute drive to all of the shopping at Easton and Polaris. The rooms were decent but nothing fancy. You can tell that they had been recently updated but there is something still out of date. The tv was super small for the room but the beds were clean and comfortable. The noise was out of control. I can understand that staying in a hotel, you’re going to have to deal with noises but we were put next to a group with several small children and a dog. The children were screaming and the dog was barking for most of the evening. Even after we called the front desk. They offered to move us instead of them but it was late in the evening and we didn’t want to have to collect our belongings and move. There was a large group of teens and they were running up and down the hallways, slamming doors and just being obnoxious very late into the morning. So add to that a very loud clicking noise coming from somewhere in the room and a refrigerator that was made for a very difficult nights sleep. So as we took our tired selves down to the continental breakfast we found that the large group of kids cleared out the entire breakfast and there was one very stressed out attendant trying to clean up and get more food. She was very lovely and apologetic and did end up bringing more food quickly. The breakfast area look as if it hosted 30 toddlers. Spilled coffee all over the floor, food everywhere. Then a group of people walked into the breakfast area without socks and shoes. They were told they had to be in socks and shoes but all of them were just in their socks. And then they were joined by someone with a dog. The breakfast area was a mess and having feet and dogs didn’t make it any better. I don’t think they were prepared for the amount of people staying. I feel like for what I paid, I didn’t get my money’s worth but maybe it was poor timing. If you stay, get the top floor not near the elevator.

Friendly Staff

This was my 2nd time to stay at this facility. The hotel is conveniently located near the Convention Center. The room was clean and all of the staff I encountered were very friendly. Jamey was extremely outgoing and made sure the breakfast area was well stocked and that you were able to find things. Nice job Red Roof Plus !!!

Nice hotel for the price.
November 07, 2018

Nice room. Nice staff. Jamey at the breakfast station was very nice and helpful. The only complaint was the parking. You were required to pay for parking and it was across two streets. Not a big big except for when its nighttime. Overall, I would return.
