We stayed in the Dayton Grand while attending the Celtic Festival. It is currently being renovated so check-in was at a table on the 2nd floor. The only places that are currently air conditioned are the rooms so every place else was very hot. You start by parking in a dimly lit garage and go into a torn up entryway.... More

This hotel is being renovated. You have to walk up a flight of stairs to check in and have there two types of pastries and coffee only breakfast while over looking there grand entrance draped in plastic! The pool and exercise area are closed and their restaurants and bar area too. The first room we were in had a broken... More

First of all, I booked this hotel through a company "perks" site. On the perks site this hotel was listed as being "Dayton Doubletree" it was showing an $89 price and I of course snatched it up right away as that's a good deal for a good hotel chain. I arrive at the hotel and quickly find out that it... More

Do not be fooled by the nice pictures on the internet and the good reviews probably written by hotel employees, because there is no way that a reasonable person could find anything good about this place. First of all, the parking garage is extremely sketchy, especially at the time I arrived (12:00am). I was traveling with my 3-year old son... More

Sign on outside of hotel is broken, only says "hotel". Based on address I guessed it was "Dayton Grand Hotel". Hint number 1. Parking garage was dirty, poorly lit, and only had about 3 cars. Hint number 2. Walked into lobby, it was filthy, worn out, looked like it had been abandoned 20 years ago. Hint number 3. Young woman... More

This place gives you the best bang for the buck. Some of the other reviewers seem to expect a five star hotel for one star price. They want this place to be amazing for only $60 a night before taxes (that is what I paid for a recent weekday stay). I got a clean room that smelled fine, working ac... More

This hotel was a complete disappointment. The hotel in general was not maintained and seemed dirty. The room windows could not be locked. "Breakfast" consisted of a few store purchased pastries as well as coffee. When we asked the desk staff for water for the kids they said they couldn't give us any water!!!!! I guess all kids and adults... More

This place is awful. There is not one soda machine on the entire property. This is just an example of how bad it is. I'm not sure how they made the place look so nice in the pics. That photographer deserves a Pulitzer. The air-conditioning didn't work well, the room was old with no amenities although the front desk staff... More

we arrived at 11pm and drove into a scene from a horror movie, the hotel parking ramp. It is dimly lit and you can't see the up ramp. we creeped in, finally found it, the up ramp. we had to park on the top floor of what looked like a construction zone. After disembarking from the car, we tiredly rolled... More

We were visiting Dayton to attend Spring Football practice this past weekend. The Marriott Courtyard on campus was booked, so we picked this hotel instead. As we drove into the parking garage we knew we were in trouble. The garage looks like it was hit by a bomb and will crumble at any given moment. I told my husband that... More
