This place is a dump. I hit my foot on a piece of metal sticking out from under the bed. Had to switch rooms twice. Place is dirty!!! Never stay here. Had to request sheets & covers for pull out couch after they knew we were using it.

We read the reviews before checked in this hotel. Lower our expectation to minimum. The TV, telephone and microwave were for decoration only, they were not functioning. No hot water in the shower. The pressure of water flow was low. On the positive side, the bed was comfort, a/c and wifi worked well. Hair dryer, iron and refrigerstor worked fine.... More

I should have known from the minute I pulled up that this was not going to be good. The front door was locked and you had to pull into the valet area which was dirty and had plywood over some of the windows that was knocked out of the entrance way. Had to immediately climb a set of steps to... More

I am absolutely disgusted with Dayton Grand Hotel. The manager Nichole Perez was not even available and had a new hire named Bonnie running the hotel for the weekend. My boyfriend and I booked the hotel for the weekend days in advanced. We arrived and check in. The front desk agent Bonnie, gave us directions to the elevator. We walk... More

I booked through a discount travel site. Pictures say it all. The front doors were locked and had a sign on them directing you to enter from the doors in the parking garage. The parking garage entrance looked like it was getting renovated a while ago, but then abandoned. Same with the front desk area. It was dark and dingy... More

The hotel is disgusting and terrible. It should be shut down for multiple health code violations. We walked in and walked out 5 minutes later. The receptionist seemed to be used to people doing that and cancelled our reservation at no charge.

I travel across the country and this is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The fumes in the room were unbearable. We had to switch rooms twice to find a room we could breathe in. My wife is pregnant and I had two young kids and simply did not feel safe. The rooms were extremely dirty,... More

The room itself was quite nice and spacious. It was a very comfortable stay with the exception that finding our way through the lobby and to the makeshift check-in desk was an experience, because most of the stairs are covered with plastic bags. It's very centrally located in Dayton which is helpful if you want to go to the nearby... More
