“Not that super”
Reviewed August 25, 2008

We needed a hotel in the Cincinnati area and didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for just an overnight and also didn't want in a questionable neighborhood. After much research via TripAdvisor, I chose the Super 8 in Mason (near King's Island). There were some negative comments and I must agree, it wasn't a place I would ever book again.

The check-in was effecient and the room was conveniently located on the ground floor, as per our request. However, the bathroom smelled like mildew and there was no refrigerator or microwave.

The breakfast the next morning while being described as "Super 8's SuperStart Breakfast" was lacking in the items usually found at Super 8's. There were only cereals, rolls and bread, beverages, and a small amount of fruit.

On the plus side, the outside pool was wonderful. We greatly enjoyed a swim after a day of traveling.

I did follow my instincts and check out the cleanliness of the room before staying for the night. It was an average room, no frills at all. But ended up being ok for the night for my group traveling to Kings Island for the day. We did get some noisy neighbors and there were no extra pillows available. Other than that it was a decent place to rest for the night. Be careful of third party booking on this one. They do stick to the no refund thing since they did not handle the transaction. So this might save you some heartache in the end if you did choose not to stay here afterall. This place really could use some remodeling. Just to freshen up things.

Upon check-in, they gave a key to a room that was SUPPOSED to be for us. It had never been cleaned from previous guests, dirty towels all over, beds unmade etc... They sent us to another room that was gross as well. The room was so hot and musty upon entering, they had the HEATER on in August. There was dust on the tables, tv, everything, as if no one had stayed in that room in a few months. The smell was terrible- musty, mildewy, sweaty smell. The window had mold/mildew around the frame. The bathroom was very nasty. Hair in the tub and on the floor, dirt all over the floor, no tissues, 1/3 roll of toilet paper, USED amenities (shampoo, mouthwash etc.) the seals were broken and bottles half empty. The towels smell like mildew, there was no way I would use them and have that smell linger in my hair. The carpeting was gross, needed shampooed or better yet replaced. when we went back to front desk yet again, we were two back in line. The first person was on a tyrant about his room condition and got a refund. The second person was requesting clean towels and linens be brought to her families room. When it was finally our turn, I decided I didn't want to stay there after all because of the filth. They kept trying to charge me $100 for a one night stay even though we hadn't stayed, until I asked for the phone number to corporate and let them know I would be making the call while standing in their lobby. They then sent me on my merry way and we went acroos the street to Hampton Inn. It was so nice and CLEAN there!!!!

We stayed here for one night while we were on our vacation to Kings Island. Our room was a King bed and a pull out sofa. When we opened our door it smelled VERY musty and just yuck but my husband said its only for a night so we stayed. Paid over $100 dollars for this stinky room! The next night we stayed in Sharonville just a few miles south at a Country Inn & Suites and it was cheaper and we had a suite and a beautiful clean room. I'd stay away from this place. Way too overpriced for what you get. Sharonville has many hotels that are very nice.

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights for a family trip to Kings Island. rooms were right next to each other, which is what we ask for. Front desk employees were exceptional. Rooms were clean (nothing fancy) just your basic two double beds. Bathroom were nice and clean. Pool was clean and warm and pool area was nice. Breakfast was basic, cereal, danish, toast, juice, milk, coffee. Over all good value and the location is great for kings island trip. Pleanty of resturants close.

We needed a room between Nashville and Cleveland and I looked at the AAA book. Only $44.99, clean, comfortable and included breakfast. Just the basics which is all that we needed.
