My girlfriend and I were driving from Kings Island in Mason OH to Virginia and stopped here after a long day at Kings Island. We also stayed here last year during a similar trip and enjoyed this hotel immensely.
We arrived late around 9 and checked out following day at 11:45, were allowed to stay after check out time which was nice. Check in and out was easy and staff was friendly. At check out, Deejay was working the desk and when I asked about late check out, he said it should be okay, but he would check, although he is the manager, so I thought that was strange...
This hotel is super modern, love the building outside, and the lobby is awesome as well. It is obvious the owners take great pride in the property, everything looks immaculate.
I read other reviews and the negative 1 star is a bit overboard, as this hotel is really nice compared to most in price range.
We had a king room second floor # 212 and it was nice, but view of pool building roof wasn't great. The a/c unit worked very well and was quiet. Flat screen was nice and the decor in room is perfect. Loved the lamps with plugs in the base, all of the furniture was in great condition and looked new. Loved the style of the rooms and bathroom was also immaculately clean.
The bed was comfortable and the pillows were nice and large we both had a great sleep!
Breakfast is very good as well, but the poor woman on our stay, was so overwhelmed trying to keep up with the high demand. Again the manager was standing behind desk and could have provided a quick hand to breakfast attendant, who was scrambling to refill food, empty trash, fill coffee, etc. They ran out of cinnamon buns about 10 minutes before breakfast ended disappointing guests as well as my self. They also only had chobani yogurt which I am not a big fan of. The scrambled eggs were okay but not a big fan. The sausage was also just okay and spicy. I love how they have so many different condiments for everything and even flavored coffee creamer! The selection of food is plentiful (when it is actually all filled). It was a Friday morning and perhaps another breakfast attendant could be beneficial for guest satisfaction.
It appeared to be pretty busy and parking can become somewhat limited! Not surprising, this hotel is quite popular!
There aren't many restaurants near hotel but if you hop on highway and go to next chilicothe exit, there are a ton of different eateries as we found out! I believe it is N Bridge Street.
If I ever pass thru the area again, I would gladly stay at this hotel again, although it is unfortunate that to each side of hotel entrance is either an empty abandoned Shell Gas Station and a old abandoned restaurant. Something awesome is across the street though, a DRIVE THRU convenience store! I am from Rhode Island and haven't seen one before. It was pretty awesome! I'd recommend this hotel as it is a great place to spend a night!
