This was an okay hotel. The name is misleading because it's actually 7 miles (via highway) from the fairgrounds. One of the front desk clerks was very friendly and helpful, and the cleaning staff was very friendly. The room was nothing special, not really worth the money since there was no breakfast included and we had to request an iron...

Close to Polaris for shopping. Five miles to fairgrounds and expo center. Staff is always friendly Clean rooms. Free coffee and tea. Also exercise room. Right off of 71 and close to 270. The bedding is good. There is not too much more I can write about it

After an exhausting day my hubby and I went to the hotel. We were immediately greeted by an older gentleman with a very nasty attitude at the desk.We were upset enough that had it not been so late we would have left! The rooms were decent. The service was ridiculous!

Overall I was happy with my stay. This is an older hotel that has undergone renovations. The beds are comfortable and clean. You could smell that it had been cleaned when you walk in. The bathroom needs updated: stains on the bathtub wall, cracked tilted areas, no fan, and the shower lacked pressure. It also took a while for the...

I was pretty sceptical staying here since it was a Red Roof Inn and I try to stay away from them. We were coming to Columbus for our friends engagement on NYE and honestly, I was in shock of how nice our room was and it was cheap. The only thing that I had to complain about was the shower...

My son and I had stayed at this property in December 2014 and were disappointed as it was clearly a Red Roof that had been something else. But we decided to give it another shot this year as the website said renovated rooms. Indeed the rooms had been renovated with the laminate flooring, paint, televisions, desks, etc. It was a...

Our rooms were spotless and hot water for 6 showers in a row was fine. Staff was Ok but didn't seem concerned that someone was pulling on our doors late at night. (Not "vibration" from room doors nearby.) With this in mind, I would stay here again and would caution others to be very mindful of your surroundings.

Going to a cheaper hotel I knew not to expect greatness but I did expect at least a clean room. There was a dry but dirty wash cloth hung up in the shower, no toilet paper, mold in the shower & on the shower curtain, and stains on the sheets. Definitely not an aesthetically pleasing place.

I should have known better to book a room at this place. But based on the reviews, I took a chance. The outside of this hotel was decent. Once I walked into the lobby, it smelled like it was old and dank. As I walked thru the hallway to get to my room, there were several holes in the walls....

Room was clean. Clean comfy bed. Nice laminate wood flooring. Nice flat screen TV. Bathroom was small but clean. Toilet was wobbly. It was strange that there was no kind of sitting chair in the room just a desk chair. Lobby was no friils and kinda dingy. Carpet on stairs was dirty. Outside of hotel no up kept very well....
