“Discrimination”
Reviewed June 4, 2010

I contacted this hotel about its accomodations for same-sex partners, hoping to talk with them to make sure that they were okay with us visiting, and inquiring as to whether they thought this would be an issue, as I am familiar with the area and it is somewhat conservative. I got no response via e-mail. I sent a follow-up e-mail to the same address. I got no response. I sent a THIRD e-mail under a different name just asking about general room availability with no mention of my partner, and received a response that night indicating they had availability, would like to have me stay, and please confirm the dates. Needless to say, I won't be staying at this place.

We often stay at the Kirkwood to visit family and nearby events. The service is ALWAYS excellent. A breakfast is provided in a historic home that adds to the pleasure of the stay. We recommend this hotel whenever you are in southeast ohio - especially in Lebanon or Mason!

I found the Kirkwood Inn online and it saved us at least $100 for 2 nights. Good location for Kings Island, Lebanon & Cincinnati shopping, and Springboro dinner theatre. It provides friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms & grounds, and lovely breakfast in an interesting, historic building.

Wonderful independent inn/motel/B&B. Very clean, minutes from King's Island, lovely grounds and gardens (that's right, gardens!), friendly people, and a breakfast buffet in a charming historical house to boot! The rooms are standard motel layout, but charming, fresh and clean. What a difference being a only a couple of miles away from the park; quiet without a peep of highway noise. The breakfast is simple, but includes fruits, cereals, fresh muffins and breakfast breads, fresh biscuits, as well as a couple of hot entrees such as eggs, a meat or two, pancakes etc. and surprisingly decent coffee (yes, I'm a coffee snob). I called a couple of months before our trip and they put together a package for three nights, including two days of park tickets and parking passes, at a terrific price. Unless it's been updated, the Inn's website does not do it justice. If you are headed to King's Island (great park by the way!) do yourself a favor an call the Kirkwood Inn.

We didn't get to go to the Kirkwood Inn. We had to cancel our trip. Their cancellation policy has a 48 hour notification clause. I notified them by email 72 hours in advance of our first stay date. I guess I should have used the telephone.
