“Great hotel. Over priced without a discount. Amazing bed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We got a r e a l l y good deal on this hotel otherwise, we would not have stayed there. The regular rate is over priced. The hotel was just fine though! The bed was so ridiculously comfortable!! The front desk staff was helpful and cheery. The decor was a little outdated but no big deal! I only wished the breakfast in the morning had something other than carbs (bagels, waffles, cereal, muffins, toast) like yogurt! But you can't beat what we paid, I would absolutely stay again. The bed alone was worth it! :)

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

One website erroneously lists this as a 4 star. A 3 star is more appropriate. When we scheduled our Christian school volleyball team, we were told they did not just have a continental breakfast, but a full breakfast buffet. Not true. Continental + waffles. Also, we could feel the springs in the beds after a while making us wake up tired.
The main reason for our average rating is that even though our group of volleyball girls were very quiet and polite while staying in the hotel, we were harassed with warnings that were unfounded. One time our girls were at the elevators and they received a warning because they were talking too loud. This was at 9 pm mind you. Then at 9:30, we were called because we kept slamming doors and running down the halls? No, we were all in our rooms. Again at 10 am? No not us. We had 4 games the next day and really need our sleep, so the continual unwarranted warnings were annoying. What were they warning us about anyway? Were they going to make us leave for being too quiet? Doors, however, are very hard to close and do need slamming unless you want to sleep with the door open. Because we were a group, they put our rooms at the security cameras, so they were no doubt watching our every move which is fine, but we were not doing anything obnoxious or out of order to deserve the obsessive warnings we received.

Room Tip: Staff is very aggressive against a traveling sports team or youth group.

We booked this hotel blind for a great price and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were all very nice, and the room we were given was clean and very comfortable. Our room and hallway did not smell of smoke at all (We were told that our room was not previously a smoking room, but some were, as the hotel recently converted to totally non-smoking.) and was extremely quiet. The beds were very comfortable, and the breakfast offered was as expected. Overall, it was a great place to crash during our weekend in Cincinnati. It's also not far from the best zoo I've ever been to!

Over the last 2 years have had the pleasure of staying at LivINN Sharonville on a Weekly and 1 or 2 day stay. You can not beat the price and value in my opinion. You are 15 to 30 minutes from a number of destinations in Ohio , Kentucky and Indiana. It is not brand new but the Management and Staff have been wonderful towards me and from what I have observed they do that to all the time. In a highly competitive industry and in a tough economy for the money you just can not beat LivINN. I have had some issues and questions and the Staff addressed them promptly and you get a feeling that they care about their guests. That makes them 5 Star in my opinion.

I had the opportunity to stay in the hotel. The front desk staff was very accomodating. Very clean absolutely NO Issues. Not many hotels are "Biker Friendly" they were. There were at least 100+ of us.

We went up for a softball tournament and had read the other reviews about bed bugs and were a little concerned. We called the hotel and the health dept and were told that the other incidents weren't confirmed or were isolated so against our better judgment we decided to go ahead and stay there. I checked our room before we took our stuff up and didn't find any evidence of them. We woke up the first morning and my husband caught one that was crawling on his chest. I took it down to the front desk, and was given a new room. Went to check it out and when I opened the door, I saw someones stuff still in there, it was still occupied. Went back down to the front desk and was given a key to another room. Went to check it out, opened the door, and there stood another lady who had just gotten out of the shower! I was as horrified and embarrassed as she was, I'm sure! So we were given ANOTHER room, and because they were out of rooms with double beds, we had to take one with a king bed, my daughter had to sleep in the bed with us and my son had to sleep on a twin sized blow up bed. They did comp our room, but it was a complete nightmare. I do have to add that the front desk clerk was very sympathetic and was doing the best she could. Other issues included no hot water for 2 days and the breakfast was barely edible unless you get the cereal.

Great place,great location,great staff too.Booked this place on tracelocity.com for only $42 including tax :-) .Ideal location for Cincinnati and Kentucky which are about a 10 minute drive south and in the other direction 10 minutes away is Jungle Jim's in Fairfield.Breakfast was the usual continental thing,waffles,toast,cereals,muffins,pastries,fruit juice and coffee etc...
Only complaint (but a small one at that) is that the wifi signal in our room wasn't great and often was lost... But then you're not coming here to mess around on the Internet so it wasn't worth complaining about.Lots and lots of places nearby or a short drive away to go eat.We came here to go to Jungle Jim's,have a quick ride into Kentucky and to visit Cincinnati Zoo..will come here again
