Great overall experience. Check in was fast and efficient and friendly. Room was clean, comfortable and fairly recently updated. Mattresses are firm. Check out was fast, efficient and friendly. Hotel is across the street from numerous places to eat. American, Afghan, Mexican, Chinese and Japanese are all available, which is cool. Would not hesitate to stay here again if needed.

The sign out front said new rooms which seemed promising since Red Roofs are an aging chain. As expected, the room was smaller with an outside entrance, basic two part bath and less closet/storage space. But...

Red Roof Inn is in a good location for Ohio State University and Riverside Hospital. There are several places nearby to eat. (some within walking distance) The rooms were clean and appeared to be recently renovated. They do not have a continental breakfast, but there was a coffee pot in the room. Other rooms had microwaves and small refrigerators. Parking...

Stayed three nights in late February and chose the motel for easy access to the med center. Very clean and beds were comfortable. Small room and tiny bathroom but sufficient for our needs since we did not use the room except for sleeping. Pam was pleasant. There is an elevator and it was fairly quiet for being on such busy...
