Me and my wife stayed in the paradise theme suite For our 14th wedding anniversary and, honestly, we couldn't have been more pleased. Yes the hotel is looking a little dated, but from what I understand from the GM, a major renovation will be started in the fall. We've been coming here for years and generally are pleased every time.... More

I knew when booking this hotel it wouldn't be the Taj Mahal. In fact, it was so inexpensive I was a bit (more than a bit actually) worried. I was very pleasantly surprised. We stayed for 2 nights to be near Cincinnati. The hotel was very convenient to the city. Our room was well worn but clean. The staff was... More

If you expect to stay at a place with courteous respectful and friendly staff this is not the place for you. We booked three non pool side rooms 2 of the three rooms were ok for the money. But one room the toilet overflowed and the air conditioner would not cool the room. We went to the front desk and... More

During that 10 minutes, we found out treeshouse could sleep fewer than the website said. It says 6 but we could only fit 3. We had 2 adults and 2 teens so we couldn't fit, so we went and asked for roll out bed or air mattress. They don't have anything for that. After that fiasco, we were in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Wildwood Inn. We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. As for the Treehouse Suite, it is by far our most popular Theme Suite. And I have verified that the Wildwood Inn website clearly states that the Treehouse has a maximum capacity of 4 people. We do allow... More

This little place was cool! We stayed in the Canyon Room and it was nice. Kids loved it. Bed was very comfy, good size hot tub, large shower, mini-fridge. But a few lights didn't work. The place could use some TLC. For the price of one night they should be able to afford it. Same for the pool area and... More

The rooms are in serious need of updating. The hallway leading to our room had black mold growing on the ceiling. Our room smelled musty and the bed was so hard we might as well have slept on the floor...but the floor was so nasty we never took our shoes off. If we could have gotten a refund we would... More

The hotel is a little out dated and rough around the edges. Very nice staff. Very friendly. Rooms were clean. Pool is nice actually fairly deep. Good place for reasonable rates when working with family budget. Has nice free breakfast everyday.

This place will make you hate your life as long as you stay there. The rooms all reek of smoke (even if the room says non smoking) and all the management will do is spray an awful orange spray that only makes the smell worse when it fades and trust me, it will fade. When you turn the heat on,... More

We found this place after a terrible experience at another hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The pool was awesome with a hot tub with a waterfall. I love the entire decor around the pool. The room was big enough for my family, but we did not spend much time there as we went straight to the pool and inside jungle... More
