I've stayed several times in this hotel. Each time I have noticed a chemical smell in the rooms. The hotel itself appears to be clean as well as the rooms but the smell is not very pleasant. Popcorn ceiling falling down, large wallpaper patch job where they used too much glue and its all over. Breakfast there is sub par... More

Not sure where to begin. We stopped in the middle of the night on a last minute trip and just needed some sleep. Kind an odd half way house type feel. I felt like we were in a bad horror/thriller type flick that took place in a cheap hotel abandoned in the 70's. Not sure how this place is up... More

We found a fresh blood stain on the cover. We ask for a new cover and that had stains on it too. She said they were washed. The lady the desk told us she only changed the sheets and bed once a week. I would never go back to this hotel.

I had a hard time locating an affordable hotel in the Kings Island area. The Wave hotel popped up. The description and photos looked okay and we were only going to stay one night so I booked a room. My heart sank when we arrived - it was so bad!! I went to check in and the lady at the... More

The room was clean and orderly, water pressure lacked something to be desired and the room had too few outlets. The overnight staff was friendly but the day staff was a bit grumpy. Not the best I've stayed in but definitely not the worst.

We was traveling home and needed to stop for the night. I looked at the pics of the hotel online. It looked really nice. After we checked in and went to our room it was awful!!!

We liked this motel and would stay here again if we are in the area. We arrived a bit early for the check-in time but the front desk clerk very nicely gave us another room for our convenience. The front desk clerk was very friendly and anxious to make our stay enjoyable. Our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable.... More

The hotel had 3 stars on priceline, which had a Marriott only at 2.5 stars, so I thought it had to be good. Price was really cheap so seemed like a steal. Until we pulled in. It was no where near a 2 star. I seriously thought they had to pay someone off to give them 3 stars. Seemed like... More
