We used the Best Western Monroe as a home base for three nights while doing some vacation activities in the Cincinatti/dayton area. It was convenient to both the Air Force Museum and Kings Island. It was a 30 minute drive on the interstate to the Air Force Museum and a 10 minute drive on a quiet back road to King Island. It is not a very large hotel.
We made advance reservations through the Best Western website, and when we arrived, the hotel was full, but our room was ready for us. That evening, they had polish sausage, rolls, cake, lemonade, and iced tea in the breakfast area. My husband made it is dinner!
The room was clean and cool when we checked in. We booked and received a two queen bed room. The beds were double sheeted, with four pillows per bed. There was a large fridge (no freezer compartment) and a microwave. There was a small coffee pot.
The bathroom was small, but made the best use of space. The shower was spacious, with a curved rod. The sink was set into the corner, and that provided more counter space, There were three sets of towels provided, but it was no trouble to ask for a fourth, and when I left a note for housekeeping, they continued to leave four sets of towels. Shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap were provided.
The children used the (outdoor) pool. It was clean and neat. Not a lot of seating, but this is not a resort hotel, so unless at the most busiest time, I can't see there being a problem getting a seat to watch the kids swim. Pool towels were available at the front desk.
They had a very large breakfast area with lots of hot options - egg patties, sausage patties, sausage gravy, hot biscuits, pancakes. Apple and orange juice. Coffee, decaf, hot water for the packets of tea, hot chocolate, and oatmeal. Assorted breads, bagels, muffins for toaster. Donuts and pastries. Milk, yogurt, hardboiled eggs and bananas. Assorted cold cereals.
There is a McDonalds next door and a gas station/mini market on the other side.
Overall, very nice hotel for the price and location.
