“Great Option when Visiting University of Dayton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Although this hotel isn't listed on U Dayton's list of recommended hotels, I recommend it HIGHLY. Yes, it's about a 20 minute drive, but the hotel is in an area where there are many restaurants and the Dayton Mall. And it's a great new hotel!
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The common areas were clean, organized, and spacious. The free breakfast buffet had several hot items (eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits, cinnamon buns, make-your-own waffles), the usual cold items (yogurt, pastries, yogurt, cereal, etc), and juices, milk, coffee, and tea. The hostess was attentive and just wonderful.
Our room was well-appointed with two very comfy queen beds. The bathroom was spacious, the towels were thick and plush, and the soaps were fine. The work space was really nice, with a flexible desk on wheels, plenty of outlets, free wi-fi, and comfortable chair. There were plenty of drawers, closet space, and hangers for storage. The television was a nice new flat screen with plenty of channel options.
We didn't use the pool / hot tub, but it looked very nice. The fitness center was adequate but small. The business center in the lobby was open and functional, with two computers and a printer.
If and when we visit Dayton again, we would definitely stay here. Everything about this hotel was wonderful, new, clean, convenient, and spacious. No wonder it's the TripAdvisor #1 hotel in Dayton, OH.

Room Tip: No room really has a nice view, as the hotel is in the middle of a complex filled with surrounding b...

This hotel is quite new. Lobby & breakfast room are attractive. Front desk staff was efficient & friendly. We had a king room (not a suite). It was extremely clean & very well designed - everything in the room was clearly designed with travellers in mind! Comfortable loveseat in one corner.

The bathroom is quite large and also very well designed. I wish all hotel bathrooms looked this sparkling clean!

The room was very quiet - despite the fact that the hotel was quite full during our weekend stay with many families attending a soccer tournament.

Breakfast room was very crowded & could have used a bit more staff to keep tables cleaned & trash emptied & food area replenished & tidied up (after the many children). Food available was the typical - cold cereals, assorted breads, a few hot items.

Room Tip: Ask for room at end of the hall (ours was) for extra quiet.

The staff completed a quick check-in and was very friendly. Offered me a snack or drink out of the pantry for being a Platinum member. Got a great room. It had a separate bedroom from the living room, 2 flat screen (actual HD!) TVs, was quiet even though I was right by the elevator. Quietest elevators I've seen in a hotel.
Location is great too...right off the freeway and there are a ton of restaurants right around the property and on 725 in front of the hotel. You could even walk to 3-4 decent places like JA Alexanders, Chop House, Carvers and Champps.
Satisfactory amenities per usual for HIE. Property is very new and is kept very clean. No problems at all and I am looking forward to being here quite a bit (again tonight!) as I am in the area working with a client over the next month or so. Thanks guys.

We stopped in Dayton on the first leg of our trip to Florida. Referring back to Trip Advisor, we took their rating and stayed at the number one rated hotel, Holiday Inn Express South Dayton. It was NOT a mistake. This place was fabulous. New, clean and the staff were very courteous and helpful. If you arrive hungry don't fret. There are a number of good eating establishments within walking distance and even more a short drive away. Speaking of eating, leave room for breakfast! A great hot or cold breakfast is offered as part of the price. Check out the pancake machine! I just love that thing. Need WiFi, also included in the price. Very reasonably priced and just a short jaunt from I-75. We loved it so much that we stopped here again on the way back north and the night manager remembered us from the previous week and remembered and asked about our trip to Florida.

We live just north of Indianapolis, Indiana and decided last minute that we would like to take a overnight trip to the Dayton, Ohio area to go the Air Force Museum. Our daughter insists on having a pool to use when we choose a hotel, and my wife insists on having a hotel that offers breakfast with our stay. These were the only deciding factors for choosing a hotel!! Much to my surprise we were given much more than that. I have to admit that I searched for the best hotel in the Dayton area on Tripadvisor and this hotel was consistantly choosen number 1.

We left our house at 0500pm and drove two hours to the hotel to check in. When we arrived we were greated by Ashlee at the front desk. We paid the standard rate of 119.00 dollars for two queen beds and a non-smoking room. The price was a bit more than I wanted to pay, but it was well worth it. The hotel was extreamly clean and well maintained. I dont think this hotel is very old at all. I asked Ashlee at the front desk how far the Air Force Museum was and she told me about twenty minutes away. We went to our car to gather our luggage and when we came back in the hotel, I was greeted by Ashlee with directions to the Museum. "AWESOME customer service"!!!

Our room was on the third floor and as we entered I was absolutely blown away by the cleanliness. The room was very neat and modern. Great beds! The television was a great size flat screen mounted at the right height to lay in bed and view without any issues. In room fridge. for storage. The bathroom was very clean and looked brand new.
The pool and hot tub both worked well and were very clean with fresh towels to use. The breakfast was great.
Overall, this was a great experience and I am planning on returning in the next couple of months to visit the museum again. I will be staying at this hotel without a second thought. After heavy consideration. The 119.00 per night was well worth it.

Thank You for a great experience!! This is how a hotel is supposed to run!

Room Tip: Room 322 was NICE!

Make sure you have your GPS or you might miss the turn - it's not at a stoplight. Overall, great experience. Visiting univ of dayton, and obviously not right near campus, but a short 20 minute drive, no issue. Lobby & checkin is more of the european style. Large breakfast area. Breakfast is ok, but would prefer real eggs of some kind over the powered variety. Cinnamon rolls were tops. Room excellent - best i've seen anywhere. Beds even have personal LED reading lights, adjustable to your position. Plenty of outlets for charging anything. TV has *real* digital cable with lots of channels, not the crappy stuff that TWC usually tries to pass off. No DVD player. Everything was super-new, great condition, really clean. Chop House next door (didn't go there), 2 others within very short walk. Easy access to interstate. I have no issues recommending this property.
