This hotel, by an order of magnitude, is the worst Red Roof Inn I have ever seen. Everything was broken. The toilet seat, the flush mechanism, the faucet on the sink, the coffee maker, both of the two treadmills in the "fitness center," the lock on the outside door. Even the ice bucket leaked! Everything was dingy and in need of maintenance: the walls, the air conditioner, the pipes. And yet even with AAA discount the cost was over $100.

It serves its pupose!!

First I made my reservation for this Red Roof Inn and then, I read all the scathing reviews. They worried me enough that I almost changed my reservation. But I didn't. My wife, daughter and I made the treck up to C-bus to take in the state fair and Columbus Zoo. Knowing we were going to be dropping fair amounts of cash at both venues I didn't want to drop a lot of cash on our hotel. You know this hotel serves it purpose. We only needed to have a place to sleep overnight. It's not in superior shape. It doesn't have a swimming pool and it's not the cleanest place on earth. But you know what, it cost us $52 to stay there. You get what you pay for. If you are looking for all those great amenities. A lobby to hang around in and smoozle with your buds. A swimming pool to babysit your kids. A continental breakfast that rivals IHOP. A USA Toady newspaper slid under your door in the middle of the night. A place that has those "Right Kind of People" hanging around. Then you should pay the $128 a night and stay at that hotel. If your wanting to spend as little as possible on your night's stay. Then don't judge it with that $128 a night perception. You know why? Wait for It! "IT IS WHAT IT IS!" We had a good stay. Yes the room is a little worn. The bathrooms could use some updating. The floor could be vacuumed a little better. BUT, the beds slept great. They had no bugs. The television was up to date and had a great picture and the continental breakfast offered served its purpose. We didn't have to pay to eat breakfast at the Columbus Zoo or Mc Donalds. If we were up in C-bus again and needed a "COST CONSCIOUS" place to stay, we would stay there again.

Mediocre!

Nothing fancy, just a typical motel, room was just okay. Good for an overnight’s sleep after a long drive, especially when you are on a road trip. Friendly staff, WiFi was a bit slow, free self parking.

Worst hotel I have stayed in yet!

We picked this hotel due to cheap prices, but it is NOT worth it! Our first room had no lock on bathroom door, alarm clock was missing. In-laws' room phone and iron were missing (ironing board was there). There were 2 towels in each room reserved for 4 adults, when we asked for more they didn't have any right then.....in a hotel. When we were leaving the next morning I realized that the door did not lock, so our stuff would be accessible to anyone who walked by and tried the door. Told guy at front desk, he said they would take care of it later in the day (no apology or attempt at good customer service). I slowly explained that we needed to leave and I would not be leaving stuff in a room that didn't lock (duh). He said someone would be right up. After 20 minutes I went back, again no attempt at good service, but he did offer us another room, again later in the day after they were cleaned. We moved everything to our in-laws' room and left for a few hours. When we got back we went to the front desk, expecting him to have everything ready (I didn't really expect that of course) waited another 10 minutes finally got a room key, and haven't had any problems since then.
