“Another Homewood, Another Nice Stay”
Reviewed June 27, 2010

Spent two nights here. Nice place near a freeway. Breakfast was good, but variety was a step below other Homewood Suites. Room was very comfy, and a touch larger than average for Homewood. Kitchen area was clean and in good working order. Staff was fine. Most of the shopping and restaurants in the area are an exit or two in either direction from this hotel. Not far at all from King's Island which is one of the things we did while in the area. Maybe a 15 minute drive or so.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights while in the area for work. The hotel was pretty standard for Homewood Suites and I didn't find it as outdated as others stated.

There is absolutely nothing within walking distance, except businesses. The hotel is in an industrial/business park area. If you want to go to a restaurant or convenience store, you have to drive there (although there are plenty of options within about 5 minutes.)

Could be good for a family: I spoke with a family at the pool who were in the area for a visit to King's Island. It is about a 15-20 minute drive away. However, the hotel offers free dinner M-Th, and free breakfast. They have an outdoor pool and an outdoor basketball court. Could be a good idea for families traveling to the area!

I stayed at the Homewood suites and I found a used condom under the bed skirts, I called the front desk and had someone remove it. The next day I complained to the manager about how sickening that was to find. Shelly offered me a four month voucher although I lived out of town. Since I do not frequent there often the one free night voucher expired. When I called to redeem it I was told it would not be honored. Make sure you get your money back unless you live their it was not worth the headache. I even called the General Manager of the store and he never returned my call. So on top of the used condom that I found in my room the managers customer service is horrible.

I have stayed at many Homewood Suites and this one has a similar layout as many of them -- large studio and 1 bedroom suite rooms with nearly full kitchens. The 1 bedroom suites have the bedroom separated by a door. They also have a full breakfast in the morning, and light evening meals M-Th (we stayed on a Sunday and did not have the evening meal). Overall, it is a good property, although it is one of the older Homewoods I have stayed in and could probably use some renovation.

Pluses:
-Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
-Hotel was underbooked. They spontaneously upgraded us to a large 1 BR suite with fireplace, and I noticed that other occupied rooms were spaced out so that it felt as though we had the entire hotel to ourselves and never heard anyone in any of the other rooms.
- Huge room with lots of space. The living area had a door between it and a hallway that connected the bedroom and a bathroom. The bathroom had sinks both inside and outside of the bathroom itself.
- Fairly well-equipped on-site workout facility plus they have a contract for free passes to a nearby gym.
-The business center also appeared to be well-equipped.
-The room was clean.

Minuses:
The hotel is showing signs of age. The TVs are a bit dated, the soda machines were either absent or out of order, the hair dryer and stovetop were not working properly.

Breakfast had lots of selections typical of the Homewood, but the food was not prepared all that well, and the little fruit that was available was not in good shape.

It is located next to a major highway, and there was a little bit of highway noise in our room, which faced the highway. It was not bad, though.

The minuses were not a major issue for us, and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Reviewed August 1, 2008

We had just stayed in another Homewood Suites, which appeared brand new, the weekend before so our expectations were high.

We were generally disappointed as the property needs major upgrading and the cleanliness in the room left a bit to be desired(granted, we have a new toddler, so we probably notice things others would not).

It appears some attempts at upgrades have been made - both kitchen and bath had new granite countertops, but the bath needed regrouting and the dishwasher was ancient and did not work. Also, an older layout with different buildings where you needed to go outside and needed a key to get from the lobby building to the rooms.

Breakfast was very good and the staff was friendly. Don't understand why a family hotel only has ONE highchair available though. Very easy access to luggage carts came in handy and was appreciated.

Location is convenient in that it's right off I-275 but there is NOTHING walking distance to the hotel - which is near a concrete plant and an aspalt plant. A bit of traffic noise off I-275 at night.

I would probably not stay there again, unless I were desperate for the extra space and the refrigerator. There is a Hampton Inn right next to the Fair City Mall a couple exits down that looked new from the outside.

Stayed July 2008

This is one of the original seven Homewood Suites according to the front desk staff -- and it shows. There seems to have been some attempt to keep it up but it is definitely showing signs of its age (carpet is dated, dishwasher is original to construction in 1989, elevator buttons are broken, etc.) We had some cleaning issues (almonds on the floor in several places) and some maintenance items (cold water didn't run strong in the kitchen or bath), but the breakfast was good, staff was friendly if not very knowledgeable (desk attendant said there were no clean towels at the pool when in fact there were). The location is very convenient even though smack dab in the middle of an industrial area with no grocery or restaurants immediately close by, it's right off I-275 at the northernmost point and right in between I-75 and I-71.

  • Liked — Free, good breakfast and convenient to expressways
  • Disliked — Needs some maintenance work to keep quality up

I have stayed at several Homewood Suites and never had a bad experience. They have all been well maintained and outstanding. This one was below average, and it was not cheap. The rooms were outdated, there were sticky spots on the carpet, the ceiling had several various stains, the ceramic tile grout was dirty in the tub and the kitchen. The overall feel of the suite was dirty and out dated. My 12 year old son even noticed....
