Verified Reviews of Red Roof Plus+ Columbus Osu

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great rate and close to OSU where we needed to be for the week."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
While it meet our needs for the week with being a great rate and was located very close to OSU so we could be close if needed and allowed us to not make the two hours one way trip daily, this is not where we would chose to stay for luxury; I'm clearly not sure what the "plus" stands for in the title Red Roof Plus as there really was not anything plus about the room/hotel or check in. Our room reeked of stale cigarette smoke every time you turned on the AC. It was a very small room as well. But it was conveniently located and allowed us to be close to our loved one during a major surgery and recovery, that was very much appreciated. And I think it's only fair to add that our stay was during the COVID19 pandemic, while not during the shelter in place but still during changes and social distancing and mask wearing or perhaps the hotel would have been a little more inviting and different. thank you.

"Never Again"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Booked this hotel thinking it would be close to shuttle pick up. It was a 10 minute drive to shuttle pick up or an hour walk. Arrived at hotel and they tried to charge $200 more than the price I booked for. Floors in our room were dirty and bugs some how kept getting into the room. Called a full 24 hours before check out to request late check out and still had housekeeping knocking at 11:00 am telling us we had to check out.
