Whenever I have to go to the Cincinnati area, this is my hotel of choice. Convenient to expressways and always clean. The staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel. Great place for families.

Front desk staff was extremely friendly and rooms were perfect. Chevy was extremely welcoming and helpful. I would definitely visit this location in the future. The only downfall is that they do hold $50 for incidentals.

Thank you for the great review and very kind comments on Chevy - we love her too! I will personally recognize her in front of her peers:) The hold on incidental should fall off in a couple of days, please let me know if it does not. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld More

Great location with a lot of places to eat,visit etc easy access to everything including the freeway. Rooms need an update and the bathrooms as well. Breakfast is simple and fast with the same food selections like everyone else. Great coffee!

Our stay was to visit the Cincinnati Museum Center. This hotel, immediately across the Ohio River, provided friendly, efficient, clean and convenient lodging. We would recommend it to anyone who would like to be close to downtown Cinci, but would like to avoid high hotel rates.

This was our first time staying here. We have stayed at a couple of other hotels within walking distance with one progressively going downhill. The Hampton was a couple blocks further away than what we were accustomed too, but was not a problem. We had a room just off the elevator that was extremely noisy. The breakfast looked so so...

Will definitely return to this Hampton since it is central to many entertainment venues. It is priced a little better than Cincinnati hotels without sacrificing quality and value. Welcoming staff that obviously takes pride in their work.

I've stayed here several times for training. Staff is nice, rooms are quiet and clean, breakfast options are pretty good. There's a liquor store right next to the hotel that looks kind of sketchy, but I've not had any issues or felt unsafe at any point.,

Stayed here a few times over the last year. This brand name hotel usually has good quality. I had to call 3-4 times to have my running toilet repaired (always a thrill to listen too each night). The cleanliness was marginal. The location is good proximity to downtown but the surrounding area is pretty scary unsafe at night. No decent... More

Thank you for the feedback from your stay. I apologize for the very inconvenient running of the toilet in your room, I remember maintenance tried unsuccessfully to correct the problem and glad one night was deducted from your stay. Sincerley, Beth Wuestefeld More

We booked this hotel over the Labor Day weekend. Yes, it was a holiday weekend, and therefore, the hotel should have been better prepared for that than they were. Check in time is 3:00 pm, when we arrived were told there were no rooms available and we'd have to wait, and then they could not even give an approximate wait... More

This hotel is located next door to a liquor store and cigarette shop, both with bars across the windows. Several people hanging out at both locations. Hotel itself is run down. I would recommend families pass on this one!
