“Clean but dated, good service but not comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

The hotel is near the interstate I-75 and this is good and bad... The good: it's conveniently located and easy to find. The bad: too close to the highway, very noisy, hard to sleep.

The receptionist was polite and helpful, the hotel is a bit dated but appears to be renovated. It is clean and appears safe. The rooms are small and the bathroom is quite diminutive. On the plus side, they offer free WIFI and there is a small refrigerator in the room as well as a coffee maker. However, there is no outlet to plug the coffee maker except in the bathroom. That is a big fail as the counter in the bathroom is way too small even for your toiletries, let alone the coffee maker...

We got a king size bed and only the next day we found out that all the kings are in the side facing the expressway and are very noisy. I mean *really* noisy. The highway noise is very disturbing and goes on 24hrs... We turned on the -extremely loud- heat/AC unit to drown out out the sounds of traffic. It's easier to ignore the continuous noise of the AC than the intermittent noise of the cars and trucks... I suggest getting a room facing away from the highway if you are to have any hope of resting.

They did have a microwave available in the breakfast area to use any time. The free breakfast was only so-so. The eggs were inedible. Tasted awful, the sausage was marginally better. I did enjoy the English muffing and the instant oatmeal.

The hotel is OK if you don't expect much... It is clean, but not comfortable.

Room Tip: Get a room facing away from the noisy highway.

The hotel was older, but looked like it was remodeled recently. The room was a decent price, clean, and staff was friendly. Nothing reallystood out, but no issues either. We were on the first floor and the room faced the interstate, so we were concerned about noise. However, the rooms were rather quiet.

Checking in was slow, but eventually another person came out of the back to help us.

The hotel was very nicely decorated. It was quiet and clean. Free parking. The hotel is located right beside the Coco-Key indoor water park and also very convenient to the interstate.

The free breakfast the next morning was very good. We checked in late, so our checkout time was 1:00 (don't know if it is 1:00 for everyone), which suited our late sleepers very well.

The pool was open, but we didn't check it out. We have stayed overnight in Cincinnati on several occasions, but we've never stayed at this location. We would gladly return. The only negative I can think of is the two double beds weren't quite big enough for two adults used to sleeping in a king bed!

I usually stay at this hotel , however overall my last experience was very bad.

I left some belongings in my room and have called up multiple times with no definitive answer or followup on them.

Every time i call up and they tell me to give me my number and never call back.

I wish there was some governance over the operations staff

Room Tip: avoid rooms at the back as they are facing the highway and there is a lot of noise

Perfect for a quick budget business overnight. Property is well appointed, very clean and convenient to I-75 and points north to Dayton and south to Cincinnati. Staff were welcoming and efficient.

The room was well-appointed, the bed comfortable and linens clean and crisp. The bath was small but surprisingly well done.

Free in-room wireless and free breakfast at 6AM

What more could you ask for at $89.00/night?

Room Tip: get a room not facing the freeway. Check for alternative routes if your traveling south for business...

The staff here is wonderful, the hotel is nice and clean and updated and I really enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was great (and included in the cost) and everything about our room was wonderful. Thank you so much, Patsy and company, for the wonderful stay!
