We stayed at the Best Western Ogle Haus Inn on a "free night" reward basis. We weren't there for long, but there are a few things you should know if you stay there.
First, the hotel is older but nice. It is in a quiet neighborhood and set back from the road a little. The Switzerland County HS, middle school, and elementary school are across the street, so I suppose it would be noisier had we been there on a school day.
The back of the hotel overlooks the Ohio River. Fantastic view! Make sure you ask for a second floor room with a river view (unfortunately, we didn't know about it and so we got a first floor parking lot view!)
In fact, our room was probably the worst location of the entire hotel. I guess you get what you pay for, but even so...the lobby door, a hallway intersection, the vending/ice machines and a maintenance closet were all right outside our doorway. Soundproofing is NOT at all this hotel's strong suit!
The free wi-fi was a major draw for us, but it was terribly weak--a real disappointment. My husband got it to work for a fair amount of time, but I couldn't get on at all. I suppose more than one connection would have overwhelmed it anyway.
Not that I blame management, but we were also there during a weekend when the hotel was rented out for someone's wedding.The rehearsal dinner was held there during our stay, and a lot of excited children and adults were apparently congregating at the aforementioned vending machines until well after 11 pm. I'm not sure I'd have booked the room knowing that we were going to be so close to the festivities. In hindsight, I should have at least changed rooms--my fault for not speaking up, I guess.
Didn't use the pool or weight room, but they looked nice. There is also a deck off of the dining area (continental breakfast was fairly good) and the river view is once again gorgeous.
