“Pleasant stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

There were a couple of minor problems upon check-in, but Javier who works at the desk at night, was very helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and pleasant, and breakfast was very good. I travel to The Cincinnati are a few times per year, and would definitely stay here again.

There is nothing special about any Hampton Inn, as they are all maintained and operated to very high hotel standards. Kings Island was very clean, the room was spacious and comfortable. The hot breakfast is always rewarding in the morning as you can get a quick start to a long day's drive. Hotel staff are friendly and efficient. A coyote walked by the hotel in the early morning just as the sun was rising...he was looking for breakfast amongst the grasses. There are some pretty good restaurants nearby and the hotle has an extensive menu list for previewing.

Accomadations were nice, but what really got this place an excellent review was the front desk help. We arrived late at night with two children and as my wife was removing one of the kids from the car seat her wedding band slipped off. We quickly got the kids settled into bed and I returned to the car to look for the ring. I asked the front desk for a flashlight which they provided. I spent several minutes looking in the parking lot and in the car when one of the front desk workers came out with another flashlight to help me look for the ring. Within 10 minutes he found it in our lower storage area. I didnt ask him to help look for the ring, but I am sure glad he did. It was a great relief and the employee obviuosly when above and beyond his typical duties. Me and my wife are grateful for it. We will stay there again for sure.

We appreciate you taking the time to note your satisfaction with our service at the Hampton Inn Kings Island. We strive to go above and beyond our guests' expectations for a relaxing stay while away from home. I understand it was a frustrating experience to lose something of very important meaning and value. It was my pleasure to help you locate the lost wedding band. We look forward to your family's next future visit.

After leaving another hotel nearby due to dirty rooms, this was so nice to see a clean room with everthing so nicely laid out and comfortable. Great TV and quiet too. They keep up a decent breakfast too so enjoy it when you stay there! The people there were so friendly and helpful that you can't go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: Third floor in the back overlooks open space and was very quiet!

I should have believed the negative reviews. I stay at Hamptons frequently, but this property was a dud. Upon check-in, the front desk clerk said “I’m putting you in a really quite room” – since we had to change quickly and drive to another location for a fundraiser, we didn’t really notice too much negative about the room or the property as a whole. However, upon our return, we settled in for the evening – about 2:30 in the morning a group of at least four people continually walked up and down the exit stairs, slamming doors and continued to have a conversation in the hall until well after 4:00am. It almost seemed like these characters were part of a prostitution ring. Finally, someone down the hall opened the door and yelled for them to take it outside. Needless to say, we got very little sleep. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Not up to par with standard Hampton Inns.

We always appreciate hearing from our guests. I understand that the noise was an issue during your time with us. We strive to have additional overnight managers available during high traffic periods to assure the comfort and safety of our guests. I’ve taken your feedback to our Front Desk staff for review. I do hope the next time you return to the Mason, OH you consider staying with us again.

Thank you.

First morning we were there, someone with a master key unlocked & opened our DEADBOLTED door @ 8:30am, thank goodness we had the other lock on or they would have gotten in!! Took 3 attempts to even get through to the front desk! The GM apologized but the rest of our stay we blocked the door with chairs. The breakfast was unimpressive the 3 mornings we tried to eat, not enough seating available so we had to load our plates then haul them back up to our room. Upon check out the front desk clerk was VERY rude and refused to give me the refund of our money we were due because we paid in CASH! I asked if he could just credit it to my credit card and was told NO again, because we did not pay with a credit card, we paid CASH! Basically, we were just out our refund!! We have stayed at numerous Hilton properties and I would NEVER stay at this hotel again!! Also had the same parking problems as other reviewers. The room we had smelled musty and stale, and was a lot smaller than the "spacious" king size advertised on the website, definitely not worth the price we paid.

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. Please accept our sincere apology for your experience. We want you to know that the comments we receive from our guests are taken very seriously and your suggestions will help us to improve the safety of our hotel. We will speak with the housekeeper that opened your door and bring this situation to their attention.

Due to Hilton and hotel policies, we can only refund money in the same form of payment used to pay for the room. We are extremely sorry for the breakfast and parking. Our hotel is currently renovating and we understand this may be a huge inconvenience to you. But renovations are necesessary to better deliver quality services to all of our guests.

We again apologize for the inconveniences that you endured while here. I assure you that your next stay will be a pleasant one. Please contact our hotel directly and we will personally accomodate you.

Sincerely,
Ritesh Patel

We stayed on night on our trip to Kings Island. The room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator. We have never been disappointed with Hampton. The children used the pool. Breakfast the next morning was very nice. Booked directly with the hotel. We will def stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was at the end of the hall by an outside door on the first floor, rm 102. We heard the door...
