Location? Fair - out-of-downtown high prices and reachable by freeway but nothing to distinguish the location. The Inn? - "somewhat renovated" would be my call - it's got some newer paint, etc. but it show it's true use is during football season (it's almost as if the place was in an induced-coma suffering from the effects of the past and looking forward to next season). Staff? - I've see more competent and courteous (no one really discourteous but not going out of their way with a smile, either). Price - TOO expensive for what you get. Can't recommend it for anyone but a Buckeye.

Good for overnight stop. We stayed in a standard King room. Very clean, compact, organized room. The bed was good but the pillows hard and flat...front desk told me to tell them next time and they would switch them. Good for overnight stay for two people. There is an upgrade to a larger room aviailable. The room is accessible only from the outside (no interior hallway). There is an elevator to the second level. There is no breakfast but you can 10% off at Applebee's across the road. There is also a strip mall across the street. The area seemed safe with lots of green space. Got a good price on Expedia.

Room Tip: Choose second floor room to avoid headlights. There is an elevator.

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.

I stayed at the Red Roof Plus+ twice within the past couple of weeks while in Columbus.The first time I had a "superior" room and everything was fine. Great staff attention to my needs, from the front desk people to housekeeping.
On my next visit, I'd come to appreciate the great location, free parking and the overall value and visitor experience.The first visit paled relative to the second.The front desk staff, Ryan in particular, did everything imaginable to ensure a positive satisfaction review from me. They came to my room to show me how the heating controls worked to making sure that my "premium" room upgrade package was properly supplied with snacks ranging from bottles of water and juice to microwave popcorn and various trail mixes. It didn't phase them to make several trips back to the front desk to make certain I had everything possible to assure a satisfying visit. Thanks to Ryan and others, I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Kudos to the management and front desk staff for going above and beyond my expectations!
