Stayed here for one night on a Reward stay. Judging from previous reviews this place appears to be turning a corner, since during our stay the hotel was in the middle of a huge renovation. The property still shows its age, but seems well thought-out and is remarkably clean. The hotel is in a great location, right next door to a Dunkin Donuts, and the parking lot is well-lit.
Check-in was friendly, with free cookies, coffee and Dunkin Donuts in the lobby. We booked a two-bed suite, and it was HUGE for a Quality Inn suite! It's basically two rooms connected by french doors and also has two bathrooms. Our suite was clean, the carpet and furniture seemed new, and the beds were comfy. However the rooms seemed sparsley furnished for their size. If we had small kids this place would have been perfect - they'd have tons of room to play. The bathrooms were the only bad spot - they were tiny and the fixtures were old. Additionally the cordless phone in the living room and one lamp didn't work. The room was also super-quiet. Despite the renovation going on, we didn't hear any noise at all. The air conditioners were also quiet. The room featured your standard Quality Inn amenities, plus a refrigerator and microwave.
Breakfast was well thought-out. The breakfast area was large, with additional seating in an outdoor courtyard when the weather is nice. It was your standard continental (with more free Dunkin Donuts), but also featured lots of pre-packaged grab & go items (muffins, Nutri Grain bars, etc). Given their proximity to the Cincinnati airport, this is great if you're running late for your flight.
I was going to give this place a much better review except that the hot water went out during the night and the staff was unable to get it fixed before we checked out. But honestly, what hotel doesn't have plumbing problems from time to time? Just bad timing that it happened during our stay.
Once the renovation is complete, I think this place will be worth a visit. In the meantime, get a suite, or insist on a room in the same section of the building as the lobby, as the "back building" is getting the most renovation.
