This place is right outside the front gate of Wright Patterson AFB and it feels like it must have been part of the base at some point because it felt like Air Force billeting. The lobby is nice with a throwback feel to the Bob Hope era that it's named after. Once out of the lobby though, it felt like... More

1 1/2 stars if that. Reminded me of 1960s hotel and I think the beds are that old too. Toured 5 rooms to see which smell I could tolerate. Skipped the toxic frebreeze ones and mold and mildew and went with roach spray smelling one. This place needs updating. Every area. Not ADA compliant either. The customer service at front... More

We have been in planning with them for 2 yrs making this reunion happen. Check in went ok but we did have small issues that were worked through! The banquet went very well. Staff was great in making the banquet happen without a hitch. The sales staff was so important in making it happen!

I just spent three weeks in this hotel for work, and I would not recommend an extended stay. If you have to got WPAFB for a day or two, it is tolerable; however, three weeks was a bit much. This hotel is not worth the price. For the same government rate, I could have stayed at the Marriott Courtyard and... More

Visited WPAFB on D day, this is vey close to the Air Force museum. Looked a little dated, but... The room was clean, comfortable and the bedding was soft. No issues whatsoever. I was told the onsite bar and restaurant was closed due to a fire. I'd go there again.

Went to the HamFest in Dayton and waited until the last minute to make hotel reservations so we ended up here. The hotel was clean but dated. The air conditioner was old style with temperature settings of 1-10 and fan speeds of low, medium, high (or something similar) - never got the temperature close to right during our two night...

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
