We called around and chose this hotel because it was close to the university and had a reasonable price. The staff was helpful and so nice. Our room was spacious, big enough to accommodate four people. The beds were comfy as were the sheets. We enjoyed our stay.

On Friday, June 29th, the Columbus area was hit with extremely severe thunderstorms and winds up to 85 miles an hour. Power was knocked out to numerous areas for as long as eight to ten days. I came to the hotel after 10:30 that night when I got home from work and saw that the power was off. Dana was all alone at the desk that night and dozens of customers were needing a place to stay. She never lost her temper with anybody at all. She gave me a room that night because she figured out that I had walked several miles to find a place to stay for the weekend. I can't drive and the buses had stopped for the night. She was absolutely wonderful to me, giving me somebody else's room when that person had not shown up for their reservation. Dana deserves to have the best recogniton that the company can give her. A week later, when my power still hadn't come back I had to come and stay for one more night and Dana was there to do her best to help me out. Thanks for being there fro me when I really had a serious need.

Room Tip: Take your room keys with you when you leave.

I arrived at an inconvenient hour, but was welcomed and treated graciously by Caitlin. When she heard me cough from asthma, she made sure I was in a room not even next to a smoking room. Motel grounds clean and well kept. Location very convenient to OSU. Bed plain and firm but new looking. Not perfect, but extremely good value for the Priceline price I paid, and they acted glad to have me for a customer even with the discount.

Stayed when attending a concert at the Schottenstein Center and the location was perfect. We walked over to Applebee's for lunch and walked to the concert. Hotel was clean and we had no issues.

I've stayed at the Red Roof Inn, OSU location, many times in the past and returned again this week. The price can't be beat for the location. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The hotel is minutes from OSU. There are probably a hundred restaurants within a 10 minute drive. Shopping is close by. A grocery store is within a 1/4 mile. McDs, Applebees's and best of all Raisin Cane's is just beyond the parking lot. When you just need a place to sleep at night, after a full day at OSU or sightseeing or shopping, this place is perfect. This is not a four star hotel and does not pretend to be. Clean, convenient and priced right.

Room Tip: First floor can be noisy during football season.

Caitlin Foster and Mike Rutherford treated our party just like we were family. They filled our every request, met all our needs, and made our state boys basketball championship week-end a wonderful experience. We will stay here again next year and many years to follow. Dana Riley also helped to make our stay a pleasant one.

Room Tip: Any room at this facility is excellent.
