“Very Nice Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Visiting my daughter in Newport, KY - hotels were booking quickly - so we decided on this Hampton Inn. I read some very disturbing reviews of this hotel right before our stay and was really concerned. Turns out - this was a clean, friendly, comfortable hotel top to bottom. From the cordial desk staff to the housekeeping staff - everyone was friendly and happy to help us in any way. I'd stay there again when visiting!

Room Tip: Try for the 6th floor - it was quiet

The entire property really needs some cleaning and some refurbishment. Water stains around the window carpet stains in the room and hall. Curtains worn and dirty, dead insects in the window sill. I checked in for a week and left after the first night. Bed was hard and the a/c smelled musty and was loud enough to wake me several times and I sleep in lots of hotels just fine. The whole experience just felt grungy.

The room was very nice and bigger than expected. The addition of a mini fridge was wonderful for keeping drinks cold. We arrived late after a long drive, but were able to enjoy a time in the pool because of the midnight closing time. We had to get up early to get to the hospital for a scheduled surgery, and the staff was very happy to get us a "to-go" bag for breakfast. Wonderful perk! We have already told many of the hotel benefits! We'll be back!

Spent one night here this week. Great location to Cinncinnatti, the ball stadium, and the Newport River front shops. Motel clean,
People very friendly . Nice indoor pool for the kids, we were traveling with two grandchildren. Also very good breakfast in the morning.

Older Hampton Inn close to Cincinnati convenient location to both downtown and the Riverfront. Our room had a view of the river. But the highlight is the friendly staff. They were all so happy and welcoming it made the hotel seem nicer and our stay better!

Room Tip: Fifth floor or better on the back of the hotel should see the river

I stayed at this Hampton Inn, was scheduled for two nights but only stayed one. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and accommodating but the room was kinda blah. The sheets and towels were dingy, and the carpet in the rooms was old and didnt look too clean. For the price they asked for, it definitely wasnt worth it. If you need a place to crash for a night then it would be fine, but no longer than that. I think it was almost $200 because of the Macy's festival and I am hoping that isnt the normal price. If so then it may be worth it, but I wont be going back there.

Thank you for the feedback from your stay with us. I was very happy to hear our staff was accommodating and thank you for the kind comments. I am hopeful next year that we will replace carpet in guest rooms and spruce up the room.
