I want to begin this review stating that I am originally from Dayton, OH. When I returned and stayed in this hotel I was quite sad in the state the downtown area has become. Good: The price! I travel quite a bit, so being in the downtown area with this price was outstanding! The view from our window was great!... More

We recently used this hotel when we were married and had many out of town guests coming in. Although they are set for a renovation, the rooms were clean and not outdated. Staff was very friendly and helpful in getting needed items to guests, giving directions, and answering all our questions! The rooms were clean and they were very accommodating... More

Go somewhere else. The photos of this hotel are beautiful, but I promise that these pictures did not come from this hotel. We searched the entire place to find the angle that could've produced them to no avail. Some of the staff were ok, some downright rude and apathetic. They have no amenities, including working AC.

We were there in early June for the UD Reunion weekend. This hotel is just kind of old. Almost all the amenities were closed for remodeling, but I didn't see any work actually being done. The rooms were OK, but the furniture was old. Basically, it's an OK place, but nothing special. Some other reviews were very negative, but overall... More

We have stayed here for the last 3 years when in Dayton for Hamvention, there is a definite lack of maintenance and direction for the hotel. The bar and restaurant are boarded up, the pool is drained and being used for furniture storage, the elevators are a scary ride, along with other minor maintenance issues that need attention. We were... More
