3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

A bit shabby. All outlets did not work, which made charging multiple devices difficult. View was to interior court with very bright light. Hard to sleep. Nice staff though and breakfast was sufficient.

Stayed here for two nights for a football game. Rooms were nice but hallways needed some modernizing. Good place to stay and watch a football game without a lot of frills. Lots of fast food restaurants in the area.

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is an interesting place, very old in some respects but in the midst of a nice renovation. One warning, there are not really any true "river view" rooms at this property. If you do have a back-facing room and you crane your neck way around to the right out the window, you... More

We found the hotel pretty easily with google maps. Noticed outside in the back parking lot an RV with table and chairs set up. Also noticed a bus near the front door with people waiting outside it to check in. Pulled in behind the bus and went in. While one clerk was taking care of the bus, another checked us... More

We stayed in town for 2 nights for a wedding. We arrived later Friday evening and were given an option of floors to choose from. We chose to stay on the first floor, which was undergoing some renovations. The baseboards were not on and there were holes in the walls going down the hallway. We got in the room and... More

The wife and I stayed here on our trip to Cincinnati. This hotel sits on the river but no view of it. The river is also the state line for Kentucky and Ohio.

I wouldn't recommend this place to couples trying to be romantic or families with kids but it was perfect for a Bachelorette or bachelor party!!!! The pool was kind of gross but after my sister cleaned it for an hour it was safe to stand in (but not to put your face in). The night time staff was great but... More
