Having seen some of the negative reviews, I wanted to be sure to note that we had a tremendous experience with the resort. The sales manager for events, Barb, was absolutely first class, pleasant, and conscientious. And while the resort is clearly old and needing some upgrades, our rooms were clean and we were very comfortable. The resort is neither... More

Kings Island Resort was definitely not what my family expected! We were very much looking forward to taking our children here for a long weekend summer vacation. Having not been there in over 20 years, I was expecting the resort to look as clean and nice as it did in the photos that were shown on their website. Unfortunately, that... More

This place was disgusting. Other than the bedbugs it was dirty, there were stains all over the floor, a few of the lamps didn't work. The office staff was very rude and unpleasant. Do yourself the favor and avoid this place.

This is not a great place to stay. We arrived on a cold and snowy night and were one of about 6 guests in the whole place. The rooms were not clean or updated. We had a mini fridge but no microwave. The pool was nice and big but was very cold if you were sitting in a chair. The... More

Horrible experience, the whole place after you get past the lobby is run down and gross. As other reviews stated, carpet was funky, walls stained, tv from and lamp shades from 1985. The dresser was missing half the handles, patio door was like the sword and the stone(inoperable). Then to top it off I found a bed bug, yes a... More

We had a large group and were given four rooms. Reservations were mixed up and it took over 30 minutes to get our keys. My sister went into her room and someone else's luggage was there. They gave her keys to an already occupied room. The rooms were dirty with stains and previous occupants clothes laying on the floor. Beds... More

I've past up this hotel many times before and I could kick myself for not doing so this time. First off I'm not even posting photos because I'm still embarrassed I even stayed there. My room had the worst carpet I've EVER encountered in a hotel. Stains like you wouldn't believe! Old style 27" TV, mini fridge, stone slab beds... More

Yes, it's right across the street from kings island, but that it's the only high point of this hotel. The rooms are filthy. The beds are horrible and there was a damp musky smell in the whole hotel. I wouldn't let my kids take t their shoes of in the room and made them sleep in their clothes because I... More

We checked in late Thursday night October 17, 2013. Our first room had horrible stained carpet, looked like the carpet wasn't vacuumed, the room smelled of mildew, and the there was no toilet paper. We complained to the front desk, and they moved us to a new room. The second room had wood floors but still was not clean. There... More

DON'T stay here. It was the worst experience of my life.They put us in a room away from the main part,I have seen truck stop bathrooms cleaner than the room. The sheets were dirty and mold on box springs. My 16 yr old grandson wouldn't even sit down while I called the desk. So they move us to a room... More
