I cannot say enough positive things about my experience over a two day and evening stay here. We had tickets to a show near campus. This hotel is about a 10 to 15 minute drive from a lot of major arenas and venues [and a short walk to Nationwide and convention center]. Customer service was top notch. Checking in was surprisingly a breeze. I did not expect such an easy process with it being so congested downtown. We paid for the parking as it's right across the street. Room was a delight as it was a corner room with huge windows and a ton of natural light. Very very quiet from any street noise or traffic. Beds were super comfy. Towels were clean and plush. Water was nice and warm. I'm so glad I stayed here! We go to a lot of hockey games and this is a perfect little gem I've just found!

I spent the evening of Monday, November 20th here. After being denied at another Red Roof in Columbus because I had more than one dog (miniature dachshunds) even though I’m a rewards member and stay at many Red Roof Inn’s, I decided to try this one after having driven all day and it was getting late. The room was clean and comfortable but the best part of my stay was the front desk lady named Monica. She could tell I was flustered when there was an issue with my card. It was no single thing that she did but she was calm, friendly and hospitable. If her GM is reading this, you have a real asset in this lady. Thank you again for a pleasant stay.
