Stayed here last week. The hotel was old but that's something that begins to be fixed over time. Beds are comfortable!! My problems is with the staff. The staff at this hotel is rude and disrespectful. Even the male manager isn't very pleasant. You would think that as a manager, he would "lead by example" clearly not in this case.... More

We only spent a night in this hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by two friendly receptionists who checked us in quickly and provided us with information about the area and how to get about. Rooms were really lovely and spacious with 2 double beds, sofa, table and fair sized bathroom. Once out the hotel we got a little... More

While the hotel is a bit older, the room was very nice. We had a one-room suite and were happy with the space. The hotel has been well maintained and is clean. It's also in a good location for visiting the Aquarium and downtown Cincy. There is shuttle (we didn't use it), but I thought it was a nice touch.

My favorite part about this hotel was the restaurant. We only ate at it for breakfast, but the lady who worked the breakfast shift was wonderful!

I would like to say I enjoyed my stay and come here frequently. I especially enjoyed the bartender Beverly. She was knowledgable of the area and was friendly and professional.... The room was clean. The noise was not as bad as you would think being right next to the highway. I will definitely stay here again.

This hotel was very nice. It is about a 10 minute bus ride from downtown Cincinnati. The bus only costs $1 each way, which makes it very easy to go into downtown Cincinnati to eat, or there are several good restaurants and bars in Covington that the front desk staff suggested.
