The good: Relatively clean, convenient to Blue Ash and Montgomery. Good water pressure in the shower. Bed is relatively comfortable. Free WiFi that is fast enough to stream video. A five-minute drive to the lovely Sharon Woods Park.
The meh: 19-inch tube TV with fuzzy reception. Fridge is tiny and set too cold. 'Fully equipped kitchen' means no dish soap, tiny bowls, no sharp knives, no oven or toaster oven, a pathetic stovetop from the 1970s, and a terrible selection of plastic glasses. No fitness center. No amenities to speak of except bar soap.
The bad: Blood-stained sheets. Four coat hangers upon check-in. Sketchy clientele that appears to enjoy smoking in non-smoking rooms to perfume the hallways in their entirety. Unhelpful desk clerks ("oh, you forwarded mail here? Probably won't show up for at least three weeks").
I thought this would be a place for business travelers needing to visit Blue Ash/Cincinnati for more than just a few nights. Instead it appears to be a place where folks down on their luck are staying indefinitely. Which is more depressing for them, certainly, but also depressing for me.More
