We spent the last night of our vacation at the Hampton in Dry Ridge on our way home.
First, I will agree with the previous reviewer (assuming the manager is the same person a year or so later) that the manager was great from check-in to check-out (yes she was there at 6:00 PM and also (or still) there at 7:00 the next morning.
She was very helpful, even assisting when our “keys” did not unlock the door from the parking lot (Was this a sign?).
The room was somewhat comfortable and clean, but it did show signs it needed some maintenance. First, the door to the room did not fit square in the opening. Not a real problem, but did require extra effort to ensure it was locked.
The bigger problem was the bathroom. The door would not close unless you lifted it up by the door handles as it scraped the floor. The tub felt like it was going to collapse while you were standing in it. Finally, I have never encountered a shower where you had to pull down on the bath faucet (very tricky while the water is running) to engage the showerhead.
Other then these minor and easily fixable problems, the facilities were fine. I must say though, for our entire six night trip we only stayed at Hilton properties (Hamptons and a Homewood) and this one was the only one with any major problems.
