Garfield Suites Hotel

Reviewed June 18, 2013

We knew this was not going to be the greatest hotel. All hotels in the downtown area were booked this weekend way in advance, so this is what we got. Although the hotel was dated and not the cleanest we thought we could make it work as we were just sleeping there.
First of all, all they had for suites were queen sized beds. And I am not sure they were even queens, they were old and no pillow top or any other comfortable mattress toppers. We climbed into bed and had to decide whether to keep the room extremely cold so that the air unit would run or listen to cars going over plates in the road that shook the room. Needless to say, we got no sleep at all!
After waking up bone tired, I asked for coffee at the front desk only to be told that the coffee shop opens at 8:00 a.m.? Really? Who opens that late! I was told to walk to Paneras, but got halfway there and wasn't feeling very safe at that hour.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is VERY dated. Not particularly clean. Stayed because it was convenient for a wedding we were attending. The price was good but as the saying goes you get what you pay for. Would rather spend a little more and get a clean place.

After an hectic checkin experience with lack of directions for curbside service we get to our room which is VERY dimly lit and dirty. I didn't want to lay anything on the floor or the bed because it seemed very unkempt. Bathroom was super small and and the curtain allowed lots of water to stream all over the floor. I wasnt impressed with the bedding, or the pillows. The room need major updates, with carpet, wall coverings, bedding, lamps and tvs which were all outdated.

Room Tip: Pick a different hotel.

We traveled to Cincinnati for a Huey Lewis concert at the Horse Shoe Casino and stayed at the Garfield. The room was a little dated but very clean and comfortable. As we were leaving on Monday morning we got to see the K-9 pest inspection crew coming in to do there weekly inspection. Just shows you how comitted the hotel is to keeping thing under control. I was impressed.

We decided to make a stop-over in cincinnati and take in a Reds game while on vacation . While the Garfield Suites weren't the nearest hotel to the ballpark it was in walking range of our 3yr old. The Hotel was great with plenty of room , clean and a comfy bed. Great staff and a reasonable rate. Parking is available but is hidden from view around back in a ramp.

specious room and location are the only two good things about this place. The furniture is worn out. There are dusts in the corner. Sink was dirty. There is no comforter, only bed cover. Internet is free but extremely slow or no signal at all.
The lobby has strong unpleasant smell. The stuff is unfriendly, and moreover, unprofessional. They discuss about people in front of customers.
I stayed on the 6th floor, facing the library accosting the street. Not hard to imagine, not much privacy there. The room doesn't have sheer curtain, so I had to shut the curtain completely, making the room very dark.
I will never stay here again.
