Only one word can adequately describe this hotel: mediocre. Expect a clean room with cheap furnishings, bath soap that feels and smells like wet cardboard, a cheap and worn mattress, and a bedding thread count that should be measured in sandpaper grit. Top it all off with surly front desk staff who aren't outright disrespectful, but clearly look at the... More

I stayed here through the recent extreme cold temperatures. The staff were excellent, the hotel clean and well looked after. There were a few down points to my visit but none of them bad enough that would prevent me staying there again. Due to the time of the year the restaurant was closed for part of my visit which caused... More

I stayed two nights during a recent bridge tournament at the conference center. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. My only complaint was that the soap products seemed cheap and harsh. It is near the Air Force Museum, which should be on everyone's "must see" list. I will plan to... More

I stay here every summer for a 3 day convention at Wright State. The room is basic and there is not alot of amenities for kids such as no pool. But what i needed it for was great, a place to sleep. You are not far from a mall and places to eat (about 5-10 mins). The Airforce Museum isn't... More

We stayed 2 nights here and really enjoyed the employees attitudes. Within 4 miles of the Air Force Museum, which was the reason for our trip. If you haven't been to the museum and you appreciate military aviation, you need to go. The Hotel is a very clean facility, with a fun bar and a very reasonably priced restaurant in... More

The staff was friendly and professional. The room was clean. There were adequate amenities and free popcorn favors along with the coffee. Overall the hotel felt a little on the cheap side. The doors and walls seem thin compared to other hotels, and the they are still using actual metal lock and key systems. Not a bad hotel but we... More

We've stayed at the Hope once each summer for the past 5 or so years while we attend conventions at Wright State University's Nutter Center.

I was pleased with our stay at the Hope Hotel. I appreciated the helpful staff. The rooms were larger and the walls may have been thicker. I would stay there again if in the area. I really liked that we received actual keys for our room. Also, as is mostly standard in rooms, there was the safety catch to prevent... More
