Kings Island is more summer camp than Resort. No fitted sheet on the bed, dirty carpets, mildew smell everywhere and really poor housekeeping. The rooms are severely outdated with old, boxy TVs, rickety furniture and ugly decor. It's an easy choice if you're going to the Cincinnati Open tennis event because of the shuttle, but you'll regret staying here just... More

Location. Location. Location. These are the only 3 things this motel has going for it. Luckily for me (and for you) there are many other hotel options in the vicinity. The only good thing I can say about this place is that the shuttle drivers were very friendly and shared valuable information. I have never stayed in a more filthy... More

Drive miles away if necessary as this place is a dump. Nothing was ad advertised. Horrible experience. Supposed to have upgraded linen package. Actually had no mattress pad and flat queen sheets on a king bed. No bath mat or hand towels, no coffee maker, no ironing board (which were stated amenities) and furnishings are old and worn. Entire property... More

We checked in and a few minutes later checked out. Stains on floor, bugs flying around, dirty bed spread with burn holes, smelled awful. And the icing on the cake was the fact that the lock on the door between the two rooms wouldn't even lock. I've stayed in cheaper hotels that were nicer than this.

We first stayed at Kings Island Resort in July and we got lucky that time with a very decent room in Building C. This last stay (checked out yesterday) was totally horrible. There were red stains all over the carpet and what looked like mold on the carpet in front of the refrigerator. Our sheets were not fitted to the... More

We were supposed to spend 3 nights, but left after 2 Our general feeling is that this place was not... More

My family stayed here in August 2014. We picked this hotel because it allowed 5 of us to stay in one room at a very reasonable price since we only planned on sleeping in the room we thought one room would be fine. We planned on spending most our time at the amusement park. The room was run down,carpets stained,... More

After a long travel with 3 hungry kids we arrived at the resort. We checked in. We hoped the outside condition of the buildings didn't match the interior. Well, we were wrong. We were assigned to Bldg G room 353. It looked really bad. Big black stains all over the carpet. The door didn't close. The water wouldn't go down... More

The front desk area looks nice and we'll kept...but the actual guest rooms are a different story. There are bugs in the bed, garbage in the hallways, a funky mildew smell lingers throughout, and the carpets have huge stains. Seriously gross.
