First, the positives: the staff were great! JJ and MOnica at the desk. The location is fabulous, even though the parking is a bit inconvenient. You DO get to pull up in front to unload and check in, but you park across a busy street, with no pedestrian access, really. But I have to say, I had to have them...

The room is newer, clean, spacious and has all you need. Also, it makes you question what you used to think about red roof inn but in a good way. After a long day of travel and work, my reservation was screwed up with expedia. Upon hearing about my day and experience, the staff (JJ and Andrew ), more than...

This is a good place to stay during the Arnold. We have stayed here two years in row and it has been great. It is just across the street from the Greater Columbus Convention Centre and is within walking distance of many restaurants. We would definitely stay here again. The staff was friendly and so helpful.

We also came to C-bus for Rock on the Range. Check in was easy. The gentleman at the desk went up to our room to double check it before we went in. Our room was not far from the elevator, but far enough that we didn't hear it. We had a big, comfy, king bed and a good sized TV....

First time in Columbus, and could not have found a better place to stay. Close to everything, and great staff, including Tarişa and Haley at the front desk. Thanks for all your help. Free daily breakfast is a bonus as well.

Service at this Red Roof was excellent. Front Desk attendant JJ was really lovely, gave us water (very welcome after a 9 hour drive) and checked us in efficiently. The room itself was a little weird -- the beds were fine, bathroom was ok (nothing fancy but we didn't expect that) but there was a big empty space in the...

We reserved a suite for a volleyball tournament at the Convention Center. The room was clean, but kind of strange: the King bed was in a separate room, but there was a glass door to separate the space, so there was no privacy. My teenage kids slept on the pull-out couch, and they said it was very uncomfortable, so I...
