It is called "River Front" but there are not views of the river. $200 per night was double what it should have been. Music Festival in Cinci probably caused the rate hike but the condition of the hotel is the poorest I've seen for a Hampton. Noisy AC, water in the pool was milk colored, pictures on the elevator doors... More

Very comfortable hotel in Covington, KY just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati; very handy to The Queen City and very cost effective compared to hotels of comparable hostelries across the Ohio. Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, typical Hampton.

Not a bad Hampton. Comfy bed as expected. Breakfast was a beautiful spread, although there weren't enough seats to sit down to eat. So I took my breakfast to my car. Lots of families eating, with vacations I guess limited seating was expected. Would stay here again

We are frequent patrons of Hampton Inns and found our rooms to be adequate, beds comfortable, and breakfast up to par. The front desk personnel were not very helpful with our questions on how best to get to stadium. This property is not on the Riverfront so the name is misleading. It is located next to a liquor store, off... More

Thank you for the review of our hotel, I apologize if riverfront was misleading, we use it as a locator as we are located on the river. Many guest enjoy taking the trolley to the games for $1.00 as opposed to walking as that would be a good distance. I will also speak to the front desk to be more... More

Had a goo stay here for baseball games. Hotel room was clean and in good shape. We arrived before check in because going to game at 12:30, but staff was helpful and let us go ahead and check in since they had rooms ready. That was a plus for me. Didn't know if I would have time between doubleheader games.... More

Booked this hotel for one night in the weekend, it was completely fun. Breakfast area is a bit too small when there are a lot of guest. Room is nice with good bed. Service is OK. Bedroom is well equipped and clean.

Thank you for the great review from your stay with us. I agree, I would love to have a larger breakfast room - especially on sold out weekends between 9am and 10am :) Hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld More

It was very good clean and everything in range. Once checked in staff just disappeared. Blocked rooms for a conference and still was charged a high price. Over all it was great and well within the surroundings. Had my bike and with the rain they let us park under the over hanging.

I stay here on some business trips to Cincinnati. It is a little bit away from the downtown area. It is a nice 20 minute walk to downtown if you want to. Or you can catch one of the local trolleys with a short walk. The trolley is $1 to ride. The room and hotel were clean. The fitness center... More

This hotel advertises itself as a Cincinnati area hotel, in the downtown area. Don't fall for it! The hotel is nowhere near downtown. Likewise, it is nowhere near the entertainment district. The hotel is, however, closer to more liquor stores and tobacco outlets than I have seen in a while. To get to the entertainment district, you have to walk... More

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize you were disappointed with our location from downtown. We are less than a 10 minute drive across the bridge to downtown Cincinnati, many guests like the free parking and ease of getting back and forth. I understand liquor stores do not always make the best first impression. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld More

Okay room. Over priced but the all star game was in town so everything was over priced. Nice enough room. No food, no near by food. Bring change for the vending machine if hungry. Good beds, old air conditioning.
