Beds we not comfortable at all; very subpar. Hotel is located in an area where it is bordered by LOTS of liquor and tobacco stores. Walking to the trolley stop is fine during the day, but I would not do it at night with my family.

This hotel is in need of a remodel. Our room was a sad, dark place obviously missing furniture, needing new carpet and had a broken fridge. Luckily we only stayed one night while in transit. The staff is nice but can't make up for a less than adequate product for the price! The hotel is also in a tough neighborhood.

Situated very conveniently by a handful of liquor stores. Why do we need to pay extra for decent internet? It's 2016. If I'm paying so much or a "nicer" hotel I would greatly enjoy not having to shell out more for decent internet.

Thw hotel and area were recommended. A little more pricey but it was an overall wonderful stay. Wish we could have stayed longer and used all of the extras, like the pool. Have nice extras, like buying aquarium and zoo tickets ahead, or even booking with the room, which saves a little extra.

It was okay. I think it could be a bit cleaner. The room it self was very average. It seemed to be missing furniture or a lamp. Also the TV had to be unplugged and plugged back in to work. Staff smoked too much. Entering and exiting the side location they were right by the door smoking. The parking lot... More

The rooms were tired and not clean. There is no snack shop - not to worry, you can throw a stone in any direction and hit a liquor store. If there is a river walk I didn't see it and am not sure I would feel safe. Nothing easily assessable by foot or by car.

Beautiful room view, staff professional (Darren) :-) & friendly. Clean rooms. Carpeting and furnishing just a tad dated. Can't wait for the scheduled remodeling. Then it will be even more awesome than it was. Recommend.

I've stayed at many Hampton Inns. This is not one of their best. Location is convienient to sports stadiums and waterfront if you have a car, but there is nothing within walking distance, and the immediate area is not the best. Room was average but clean.

Thank you for the review from your stay, I was sorry to hear you did not enjoy the location or our breakfast. There is a very nice little German village within walking distance called Mainstrasse Village, I apologize if we didn't do a good job of relaying this information. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld More

We typically stay at Hampton Inn's because they change the bed covers between every guest. The rooms are predictable, the wi-fi is free, and the breakfast buffet is hot and good. We asked for some restaurant recommendations at the front desk and they were very helpful recommending a short walk to downtown Covington. There were quite a few restaurants we... More

The hotel was clean and staff was polite. The pool was acceptable for a family. The breakfast was ok but my least favorite of the stay. The surrounding area is a little rundown but easy highway access and very close to downtown Cincinnati
