I'm stunned to see any positive reviews of this place! My mom and I stayed here for a very short visit (one night, just needed to get in and out quickly), and yet the short time we stayed here was horrible. We booked through hotwire and got a great price. The pics looked terrific, and we thought we were in... More

This hotel has great potential as a boutique hotel when renovations are done! With the abandoned buildings in downtown Dayton, I am not sure the location will provide for success. My poor rating is a result of lack of information when we checked. Our room was adequate accommodation with comfortable beds and nice linens. However, the hotel had suffered frozen... More

We booked this room weeks in advance. When we pulled up, three cars were blocking the entrance because the sign said, "Employees only beyond this point." One driver said, "There's usually an attendant on duty." After 10 minutes of waiting, I called the hotel on my cell and was told it was self park. I had to get out of... More

This hotel is probably better than the average current rank of about two stars. Well look around you in downtown Dayton, OH and put your expectations according the surroundings. Yes it is not Grand but it has big rooms as well as bathrooms (which have something like granite walls and counters), pretty good beds with nice pillows, free internet and... More

This was by far the dirtiest hotel I have stayed in. Everything was filthy and I cringed to even use the dirty light switch. I believe this is an extended stay hotel as well. There was a German Shepard in the room next to us and the front desk said the owner was a "long term guest". The area the... More

Despite what the other reviewers stated, this is truly a 4 star hotel in the making. Stay here and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. While they are currently renovating, as a recent guest myself these renovations went unnoticed. I had a pleasant, quiet stay which was the overall goal. I was in the area attending the Big Beers...

This hotel does need refurbishing and a really good cleaning. The rooms were worn looking. Water pressure in the shower was minimal. Bed was comfortable. Tv worked. Their website says they are refurbishing, but I could see not signs of it. The breakfast was very skimpy and not much of a choice. Coffee was bearable.

I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment in your stay with us. We are renovating many areas outside of the guest's view. Every room and every amenity will be completely changed over in the spring. Please come and see us when we are renovated so that you can experience the Dayton Grand in a new light. Thank you,...

Got a great rate through hotels.com at the last minute as I had an unexpected extended layover. My room was very clean and comfortable and offered a great view of downtown. The missing amenities didn't bother me, although a diet coke from a vending machine would have been great. In all not a bad experience, and because they don't have... More
