Southgate Hotel
Ranked #10 of 14 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed July 16, 2014

The oil/gas industry has apparently created a boon for hotels in the Cambridge Ohio area and thus many are fully booked. After finding several hotels in the area booked, we decided to take a chance on this place. The lobby looked fine but the hallways and rooms were a disappointment. Fortunately everything looked clean and there were no objectionable odors so we decided we'd stay. Everything (TV, Internet, etc) seems to be working satisfactorily. So we'd rate this place as being acceptable, but its at the bottom end of what we find acceptable. And it's not particularly cheap. Price is about average, maybe a bit higher, than we'd expect to pay so we would not call this a great value.

We stayed overnight at this hotel to attend a wedding in Cambridge. The hotel staff was very helpful, check-in and check-out process were simple and straightforward. There is plenty of parking in the area and best of all it's pet friendly. Very satisfied with the stay.

After miles of hotels that wanted over $150 for a two bed room, the price of $103 was quite reasonable. Our room was CLEAN. Bedding was good quality for the price. This room was just as good as any of the big name chains we had stayed at during this trip. While they don't offer a breakfast they do offer coupons to the Denny's across the street and there is a McD's almost in the same lot.

The hotel was beautiful. The rooms were clean. The staff was OK. It was quiet. The price was much higher than I usually spend but rooms were at a premium that night. They offer no discounts (AARP, military, etc) that most places do. I would probably stay again if nothing else was available but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Over $100 for a dump. Full of construction trucks hid behind the building even on a Friday night. Mold in bathroom. Smells and had trouble breathing. Noise at 3 am and doors slamming at 5 am. Bed has no support, tv very small and no breckfast. Worst deal we have had in 10 years.

Room Tip: Don't stay there, drive onnnnn

I did not sleep well for fear of what may crawl on me. they brag about being American Owned, but if this is what American owned gets you, I don't want it. $95 for stink. NO WAY!!!

Now way, not again! I would rather sleep in my car. We drove till almost midnight and no other hotels were available. they charged us $95 for a room and it stunk really bad. I do not know what that smell was and I don't want to know. I told my wife to just get in bed and don't turn the lights on. The sheets felt gross too. We are not the first to complain about smell.
