Thank you for sharing your experience at the Red Roof Plus @ OSU. We are happy that your room was clean and that your stay turned out to be fine.

My father was up for surgery in local hospital. Provided a comfortable stay for the week. No frills motel. Daily made service. I felt safe here. Close to local eating establishments. Not much convenience services other that free coffee. A good choice if your on a budget.

The location is walkable for a Buckeye football or basketball game (about 25 minutes for football and less for basketball). Make sure you get assurance you can keep your car parked in their lot if you are not staying night of the game. We stayed the night before the game and were checking out before the noon game and the...

We stayed at this hotel on a previous trip and enjoyed our stay. This stay was also wonderful . The evening as well as the day desk attendants were friendly and offered several good dining suggestions. The hotel is located right off the highway; we didn't have any problems traveling to the site. The room was clean and, unlike many...

We had a great experience at this hotel and were surprised at how charming and clean the rooms are. The staff was polite and helpful. Although we did not use it, the fire pit is a great feature that sets this hotel apart. Perfect place to hang after the football game. Highly recommend this hotel.
