Stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel lobby was decorated for Christmas and looked very nice. Nick who checked us in was very friendly & answered all our questions. Room was very clean, bed comfortable, plenty of linens. Breakfast pretty good. Kudos to Casey & Diedre both of whom were also very friendly & helpful. Would definitely stay here again!!!!

Stayed here on 10/22/12 as part of a wedding party. Needless to say we were up late and did not have any problems with the staff. In fact, the roving security guys walking the halls late night were pretty friendly. Their staff in general were really friendly. Overall the room was clean and well kept, but our mini fridge was...

Checked in late at night, the woman working said she had worked there longer than anyone else and it showed in her speed and accuracy of service. She had us checked in fast, took care of our needs and had us on our way to bed in no time. We stay at a lot of places and have to say,... More

Easy located right off the highway, only about 20 minutes from the airport. You can walk to the centre of Cincinnati in about 15-20 minutes or you can also take the trolley that stops right across the hotel on which you can do a tour to the centre and to Newport. The hotel has a large parking lot, free of... More

Rooms were nice. Nothing special. Quick check in service. Perfect for my son and I to catch a Reds game. Drove a few blocks east, parked the car, walked across the Civil War era Bailey Bridge. Awesome view of the downtown and stadiums. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

We decided to stay here after such awful reviews of the Drawbridge Hotel. Were very happy with our decision. They put us on the executive level and the rooms were very clean. The hotel needs a bit of a facelift as it is one of the older hotels, but we had no complaints with the facility at all. We had... More

This is a below average Holiday Inn and definitly not worth the price. We found the bathroom smelled of urine, the shower curtian was dirty, the windows were old and worn out. While getting ready in the morning, the bathroom light burnt out and they told us that it would be 40 minutes before it could be fixed...they did let... More

My wife and I traveled here from Virginia to attend a wedding. The hotel is conveniently located just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, in Covington, KY. The hotel was obviously and older Holiday Inn but was nicely maintained and the staff was outstanding from check-in, to the lounge and restaurant and the catering. Our bartender Jess was great. She's... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend. We went to a Reds game (which I highly recommend) and the Bunbury music festival (also highly recommend). There is a shuttle from Covington to downtown Cincinnatti to Newport for $1 outside the hotel. The route is a bit confusing at first (one of the bus drivers told me I... More
