The hotel is outdated and very dirty. We found trash behind the beds and they have a stench of cigarette smoke. Please just pay extra to go somewhere else because when you complain they do nothing at all! Worst hotel ever next to a amazing amusement park. By the way whatever you do don't eat at the breakfast buffet it... More

We've stayed with our baseball team 3 times at the Kings Island resort and always had a good experience. The one year the indoor pool was closed while being renovated, but the outdoor pool, basketball court and volleyball court served its purpose. The problem with the resort is that the rooms are in desperate need of updating. One of our... More

When visiting Kings Island, we are just looking for a place to rest our heads. This may not be the classiest resort but it meets our needs. We were only in the room to sleep but we enjoyed our stay. Staff was very professional and friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and they have amenities if you want or... More

The walkways to the room from the parking lots were grown over with bushes leaving a narrow path to maneuver through with your bags. The trash cans outside the entrance doors near our room stunk so bad that we had to hold our breath as we hurried to get our key out to unlock the door. The hallways had a... More

I don't think I have ever stayed in a dirtier hotel. It smelled moldy and damp. The toilet had urine and hairs on it. The carpet was filthy and stained. The beds did not have fitted sheets on the bottom, so after tossing and turning a bit in the very uncomfortable beds, we were laying on the bare mattresses. That... More
