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

We had a group of 40 stay here for WGI World Championships. The location was good for what we needed and the staff was very accommodating for our rehearsal needs as well as solving issues quickly. Parking was available but you had to know where to find it. Hotel is really beautiful historically but rooms are not all updated. Would... More

The room has stained walls, the wall paper was peeling apart, our blanket looked like someone spilled red koolaid all over it, where the minifridge used to be it was missing, all vending machines and ice machines were either empty or missing, the staff was very rude, and parking if youre elderly or handicapped is near impossible because there are...
