Love the online check in process the day before arrival and being able to select my room through a virtual map! Staff was friendly at arrival and departure. Clean hotel and location was great! Bed and pillows were very comfortable!

We stay in the hotel room we have to go to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The location and the complimentary breakfast every morning is fabulous. This hotel is clean, the staff is very friendly and the rooms were clean.

I thought I reserved a room on the Cincinnati riverfront in the downtown area as the name implies. I was surprised to see that this hotel is not in Cincinnati, not on the riverfront (although fairly close), and only very loosely in the downtown area. I confess that I failed to notice that the actual location of this place (in... More

Please do not stay in this hotel, it is by far the dirtiest hotel you would ever stay in, it's trashy, the rug is filthy and the bedding is all ripped. There was a party in the room across from us and they were physically fighting and the hotel staff did nothing.

Location is near a liquor store and cigarette store in a shady part of town so not exactly family friendly. Lobby was small and the room was clean. The AC unit was temperamental with having to adjust it throughout the night. It would cycle on and off very loudly so not easy to sleep through it. Breakfast was good and... More

We had an appointment at the Cincinnati childrens hospital and stayed at this hotel. It was a 10 minute drive to the hospital. The hotel was clean. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We swam in the indoor pool which was very nice and they had plenty of clean towels. The breakfast was very tasty and the kitchen area... More

This hotel needs to be closer to $80/night, not $130+! This is not Hilton/Hampton quality. The key cards and digital door locks barely worked. The room was plain with normal curtains and bedding and there is little to no view of the river. When I called down about getting some coffee (since our room was not stalked with coffee) I... More

The rooms where ok, smaller than expected. Main reason we staied was the pool and view. Pool was ok, just seemed the heater was working, and the view, their was none. We where on the 4th floor (only 6) and there was a huge concret wall. We couldn't see much.

Thank you for the review from your stay. We keep the pool at 84 degrees per our Health Department regulations, which does feel cooler than body temp of 96, I apologize we are not able to make warmer. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld More

Room and Linens were crisp and clean. Hotel was busy but still quiet, even on the first floor. Staff was helpful. Continental breakfast appeared adequate even though we didn't eat. Location was convenient to interstates and downtowns.

The disappointment with this Hampton Inn began when we realized that "Riverfront" is in the name, but the river in question is not even visible amidst the generally industrial-feeling neighborhood and the highway interchanges. The main attraction of the location is "Mainstrasse," a faux German village about 5 blocks away (walkable, but the streets are not pedestrian-friendly). We ended up... More
