I had one of the most satisfying stays for a complete price worth spent. I kept bragging to people I knew about what amazing customer service my partner and I received that I just had to write a review. The hotel was clean, convenient in toiletries, and most accommodating in breakfast. Did I mention the location with your own parking...

Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. JJ and Grant at the front desk helped us check in and with finding places to eat. There was a good selection for breakfast and when the hard boiled eggs ran out, the staff went and retrieved more right away.

One of the cleanest and most comfortable hotel rooms that I've ever stayed in. Staff was very friendly and helpful with questions, and also found my purse for me when I accidentally lost it. Special shout-out to J.J. and Stephanie! Thanks for all of your help, I really appreciate it!

We spent two nights while discovering Columbus with our kids. Tarisa checked us in and was very helpful ensuring that our room met our needs. After being in our room for a bit, we realized it was going to be more relaxing if we put one of the kids in a separate bed. J.J. was very helpful by promptly bringing...

I arrived to Columbus earlier than what I thought. The front disk guys Andrew & JJ helped me checking in earlier. They made my experience with red roof excellent. I totally recommend staying here if you are looking for a good location and great hospitality.

I stayed at the downtown Red Roof Inn Plus for a convention recently. I was actually very impressed. Nice rooms, comfy beds, hair dryers, etc. The doors are all inside and the parking was right across the street which is a deal for Downtown Columbus. We even had in and out privileges. On the last day of my conference, they...

Let me start by saying the staff was very friendly and tried to do their best with what they had to work with. I think some of these previous reviews were suspicious, and I will leave it at that. The rooms were not the cleanest. I was in several co-workers rooms this night and they were all the same. They...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Red Roof Inn. I was there for the Arnold Classic and this hotel couldn't be any more convenient.

The room was not worth the price. We had to pay for parking that is across the street. The rooms are not sound proof.
