The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Large rooms with impeccable service. The bathroom fan needs to be replaced due to noise. The area outside the hotel is nicely organized with chairs for smokers which is refreshing to see in the USA. The bar served a decent breakfast and good food for dinner

We were there for a conference and only used the Conference Center and did not stay in the hotel. The staff were very friendly but they have not been trained in hospitality service. After clearing the tables they scraped and sorted the dirty plates in the pubic hallway, right outside of the ballroom. Also, during dinner on Saturday night they... More

The staff are very professional, the building is solid and the floors and sheets are clean, so, at the most basic, you'll never feel unsafe or unsanitary. However, there's very little beyond this I can say for the hotel. It's not easy to find, as you have to turn in toward one of the gates to Wright Patterson AFB, but... More

I enjoyed my four night stay here. The hotel rooms are nice and the staff are all friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on site and the food is good. The location was a bit hard to find at first. The website gives an address of Building 823, Area A, Gate 12A. I went into gate 12A and took... More

The place was clean and comfortable even though it is dated. Staff was friendly. Good get away for business focused meetings. Bob Hope would be happy with the Air Force theme with all the pictures and mementos.

Absolutely horrible. Room is very unwelcoming, and extremely dated. Bed feels like a board with fabric on it, and about 30 years old. The comforter is very outdated and one that you don't want touching your skin. Sitting chair in room is so worn you can nearly see the frame, the rest of the fabric is hard after years and... More

Lots of reviews slamming this property, but if you go in with clear expectations, you shouldn't be disappointed. It is only about $89 per night and it is an older property. Clean, secure but worn a bit. Key locks have been replaced with electronic ones. I didn't really like that there was no bar soap......only pump dispensers mounted to the... More

Customer for over 10 years and one of the main attractions is the bar in the room. Hopefully, visiting again this year and many years to come. The staff is very kind, professional and accommodating. Very close to the Nutter Center, Shopping and Restaurants surrounding the hotel as well as one in the hotel.

This is a decent place to stay if you are on a budget, but for a few dollars more per night you can stay at nicer hotels in the area. Pros: Proximity to Area A of WPAFB and the restaurant is good for breakfast. Cons: Dated property...feels like a time warp to 1980's.
