Nice room, good price and friendly staff. Especially Melinda who was so nice and efficient. Very close to all OSU sport facilities and the academic campus. Ample parking. Easy access to route 315 and downtown.

This inn is very convenient to the Greater Columbus area. The OSU campus is within walking distance and downtown is ten minuets away. The rooms are very pleasant and extremely clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Pet friendly is a big plus.

We decided to stay here because of its close walking distance to Ohio Stadium, GO BUCKS!! It is a 20 - 30 minute walk for most people.

We stayed here for an Ohio State game. It was a $4 uber ride to Ohio stadium. It is walkable, but really, 4 dollars...why wouldn't you?? We were able to check in at 10 a.m which was awesome. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. We will back for Ohio State games in the future.

My husband and I spent the night of Sept. 8, 2015 at the Red Roof Plus at the Ohio University area. Check in was efficient and fast. Our room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. A packet in the refrigerator contained drinks, and snacks. The area was quiet and our stay was relaxing. We would stay there again.

Rooms were basic, but nicely kept. Newly renovated last year. We liked the wood floors. Great fire pit area for groups traveling together to meet. Near several restaurants and shops to purchase necessities. Great staff.
