TripAdvisor Ratings

In town for one night
December 22, 2019

The hotel is well located in the downtown area, within walking distance of many attractions. The rates are far better than any other hotel I found in the same general area. The parking rate is $10 per day (in a dedicated lot across two streets), which is very reasonable compared to other (admittedly more luxurious) hotels in the area. The rooms are of adequate size and have a reasonable number of amenities compared to similarly priced rooms. The room had both a fridge and microwave-the fridge was a little loud at times...this didn't cause me to lose any sleep, but it might bother other guests. The pillows and mattress could have been better-this didn't bother me but might bother some other guests. The free breakfast is reasonably good. Overall the best option in this section of town, I will very likely stay here again the next time I am in the area. The bathroom is a little cramped, and our shower head didn't work that well. The staff were courteous and helpful

A must for Convention Center visitors
December 13, 2019

I spent a week in Columbus for a trade show at the convention center which is located across the street from the hotel. I was surprised at the low rate for such a prime location to the convention center. Hotel was very clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Parking is $10 per night with in and out privileges. This is a bargain as parking nearby at local lots is much more. Breakfast was a little disappointing however with a limited selection. No complaints though. I would surely stay here again.

Walking Distance to Nationwide Center
November 18, 2019

Nice room, mattress was dated and lumpy, staff was pleasant and offered advice/ recommendations, breakfast was typical for a continental setup. Parking was offsite in a parking area for customers only. Hotel was clean and well maintained. Overall a nice quick get away place close to all things downtown.

Lumpy mattress, no heat adjustment,
November 12, 2019

Although decently clean & no odors, This hotel was quite disappointing because it carries the name Hilton and had a Lumpy mattress, no heat adjustment that worked, False advertising on the breakfast because it was not free even for a Hilton honors member. For all of this on a Thursday night I had to pay $180. That’s extremely overpriced for what I received. When I did the Hilton review I was offered no compensation Of any kind as a Hilton honors member. I will never stay at this place again!

Not so Good
October 31, 2019

Wow, I have not had a hotel impact my travel in recent memory. I travel quite a bit for work, not in the Midwest though. Check in was ok, JJ at the desk appeared to be the most competent staff member at the hotel. The woman working night shift who's name I did not catch was good too. Now the bad. Elevators make a lot of scraping sounds and are frightful to ride as a result. My room was fine fridge, etc, but an awful smell (mold) emanating from the sink and shower drain area. I have a bad sense of smell so this was pretty strong and pretty awful. Quite lot of focus on a tip envelope in the room. I used tissue to plug the overflow hole in the sink which knocked down the smell quite a bit. Staff was working on rooms and had my door blocked about 430pm at check in. First morning, I left no tip for 'Brandi'. I was in a rush. Room was overtly, minimally maintained. Blankets up in the bed, no other actions in the room. I figured they must be insulted if you don't tip. So, I got ones, left a tip 2nd day. Also, this day, someone cleaned the origin of the mold smells, probably because they noted I plugged the overflow to block the smell. 3rd day, came back midday to find the do not disturb tag on my door, which was in my room when I left at 7am. I pulled the tag and spoke briefly with a room cleaner, like'yep that's my room' as I departed. Came back at 5pm, room skipped 100% for cleaning. Lucky I don't use a lot of towels. This hotel is actually in ok physical shape. The staff, cleaners, need tips to clean your room. Clean the site. I offended them terribly by not doing so, I guess, first day. I had no bad, demeaning, or other negative words with the staff. I'm quiet. Cleanliness and condition of the moment indicate they have some sort of staffing issues. They were spraying odor killer in the lobby 2x as I was coming and going. They kind of sprayed me! Sweet cherry or vanilla or something like that....not a fav. First and last Red Roof experience. The hotels were full in the area for my conference, so it was the only option. Not the hotels fault, but rough characters roam the street in this area. Panhandlers and 'noticers' who call out what your doing, wearing or carrying so you know they are observing. Fun. 1 star rates the performance of the staff, cleanliness, etc, not the grade/caliber of hotel. The front desk got the 2 stars. This is a 2 star hotel by class/grade, services offered. The low rating represents how it is being run.
