My family and I arrived at this hotel to check in. Staff at front desk was extremely helpful and gave us tons of information. We arrived at our room and unloaded our car. Outside looked so-so, but I try not to judge my looks alone. Individual buildings with several rooms. Had a hard time locating our room. Once we finally... More

This is the nastiest hotel that I have ever stayed in. The family room carpet was badly stained. The outside was covered with trash and cobwebs. The room itself had cobwebs in the windows. Unexpected visitors like a roach and mouse. You could see the mattresses because the comforters were too small. Overall...unacceptable. Do not do it

Pro - Allowed us to check-in early, Shuttle to KI, a room large enough for family of 5. Cons - the property is VERY dated. the doors to the rooms were very hard to open due to the age of them, the toilet was difficult to flush due to outdated plumbing. If we pulled too hard on the door while... More

We arrived to badly stained carpets, nasty smell, mold on the walls, and the shower was stained and moldy! Not a nice place to stay at all. Made us feel dirty and the front desk staff didn't seem to care!

I honestly don't think this property has been updated since they filmed the episode of The Brady Bunch here. Rooms all outdated with carpet fresh smell in the carpet. Not very clean. The bonus to this property is the playground and the pools (outdoor and indoor) and the fact that it is very close to Kings Island.

We stayed here June 29 - 30, 2014.There is no way Kings Island should attach their name to such a nasty hotel. We travel a lot. This is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed at!!! The front staff was rude. The cleaning staff was down right strange. Breakfast was gross. No chain on the door. Deadbolt didn't... More

We walked into our room and it instantly gave us a funk. The toilet was not clean at all and the bed had black hairs all over it. We didn't stay there and ended up going to best Western where theyou actually clean their rooms. Thank goodness the night manager at Kings island resort gave us our money back. NEVER... More

When they tell you that the rooms have not been updated,they fail to tell you that they haven't been cleaned in 20 years either! Are they aware that fitted sheets have been invented and are available at a local superstore? Shower shoes are a necessity. I could go on, but I don't have all night.
