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 The comforter is very outdated and one that you don't want touching your skin.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.

I would have to agree with another reviewer. What an example of Fraud, waste and abuse of government funds when putting up military service members, contractors and other DoD. We stayed a miserably long week. The mattress was worse than sleeping in our vehicle, which if it wasn't horrible weather, we were tempted. Sheets only got changed one time even... More

I have to say I was not impressed with this hotel. Having stayed there for three weeks was a total waste of time and money. This hotel is totally ripping off the government by charging less than other more established hotels in the area. There were numerous problems with this hotel ranging from ants in the room to having paper... More

I would rate this hotel as average. It is a little run down but still kept very clean. It is comfortable enough and will meet basic needs, but lacks some amenities you might otherwise expect. PROS: -Right outside the gate of WPAFB -Very close (drive-able) to shopping malls/food -Decent sized rooms with refrigerator/microwave/tv (60+ channels)/free wifi (good connection) -Hotel Restaurant...

We have stayed here a few times in order to go to the National Air Force Museum. Wonderful place to take children to. We also shop at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base since we are retired military. The hotel is next to the base & a few miles from the museum.
