My room was worn out and broken. Everything other than the rooms (restaurant, fitness center, etc) were closed for remodeling. Here are some highlights: Old and beat up furniture, ancient TV, heat didn't work, worn carpet, luggage carts so dirty I wouldn't even use them, worn sheets, lobby coolers offered a few bottled waters and no snacks for sale and...

The room was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The staff was courteous . However, the phone in the room did not work at all and the television was very less than adequate. It was a standard definition old TV. The remote didn't even work. I called the front desk and they sent someone up with a bag of old remotes.... More

I was in town for work. I stayed at this hotel for just about 3 months. My room was very spacious and the housekeeping staff always went above and beyond. All front desk staff, including management members, went out of their way to make me feel at home. They made excellent restaurant recommendations and always treated me well. I will... More

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

I am very disappointed to read that you had an unpleasant stay. We are working diligently during renovations to make every guest experience a good one. Our guest rooms are clean, but not up to date. We are sorry for any inconvenience that you may have experienced. Unfortunately, while we are renovating there is little we can do about 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...
