Stayed here for a few days before a Cincinnati Bengals game. Although this is across the river from the stadium, that really isn't a problem and the prices were better than near the stadium/city. The room is a mini-suite but had everything we needed including free wi-fi. Also the typical Choice Hotels free breakfast every morning. This is also very... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night for an overnight getaway to Newport. We arrived around 1:00, which was early and before the posted check in time at 4:00. The lobby was packed! There was a bus parked outside so I think most of the people in the lobby were with the bus. There was only one person checking everyone... More

It took us over 45 minutes to check in to this hotel at 4:45pm. The room was paid in full at the time of booking, and there was only one person ahead of me in line. The checkin chaos was unacceptable. The hotel was having some kind of housekeeping crisis, other guest said they have been waiting in the lobby... More

If you're looking for a hotel that is close to Downtown Cincy or Newport on the Levee, this is the place to go. The rooms don't blow you away, but are adequately clean and comfortable. The vending is reliable on the 2nd floor (good snack selection). I actually preferred it to the breakfast that was served. Stay here if you... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights during our recent Cincinnati/No. Kentucky visit. The hotel had everything we wanted at a great price, especially since I'm a Choice Privileges member and prepaid for the room. We attended three Reds games so the hotel location was perfect. The trolley stopped right outside the hotel and dropped us off beside Great... More

Held a meeting here this week and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. The meeting room was large, faced the riverfront and perfectly suited our needs. Sleeping rooms were also large, well appointed, with extra comfy beds. Trolley ride to several stops around greater Cincinnati for a mere $1.00. I'll definitely be back!
