3.3 Mediocre
Cons: Room was not what I expected for the price. Pool was small and dark. Cleaning staff not friendly in fact I got the impression they were bothered by us even being there. The hotel held extra money for incedentials which is annoying. They have removed all vending machines and now you have to go to the front desk and pay $3 for a candy bar. The dryer on our floor did not work. I could go in but why bother this will not change anything or result in any apologies. I will not stay in a holiday inn express ever again

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location, the kitchen staff was very polite and the cinnamon rolls were amazing!
Cons: Was given a key to an occupied room with people in there at the time we opened the door. Toilet was broken and never fixed. No apologies from front desk staff. Brought it to a different front desk staff 3 times and nothing was done about it. Spoke with the general manager at checkout and was told we would be given enough points for another stay at any IHG hotel. That didn’t happen. That’s where the liar is. Head of that particular hotel. What a joke . Worst customer service I’ve ever come across. For a GM to lie straight to our face. I’m disgusted with Holiday Inn Express. Sad excuse for a hotel

8.3 Excellent
Pros: I liked how close it was to King's Island and different places to get food. My grandkids loved going to Graeter's for some ice cream after they had a full day at King's Island. We have always loved staying at a Hilton hotel, and have for the past 30 years, give or take. It was a wonderful experience.
Cons: The rooms did not accommodate the number of people staying in the room. My granddaughter is a makeup artist and brings her entire makeup collection with her every time we travel, there was just not enough room for her and my grandson to spread out and do their thing. My husband also brings his work computer so he can stay ahead, he and my grandkids were butting heads on who would get the desk. It would just be easier if the room was big enough and there were enough towels to keep my family and me happy.

4.5 Okay
Pros: Honestly, the only thing I liked about this hotel was the location.
Cons: Dissapointed with this hotel. First I will start off with the room. It was dirty. The bed linens did not appear changed from the prior guest/guests. There were wrinkled impressions in the areas you would expect someone to be laying. The sheets were not crisp and clean appearing. The room was dusty. The mirror had stains on it. There was a screen/filter sticking partially out of the AC, that could not be pushed back in. Half of the channels on the TV did not work. One of the channels I like to use it the hotel channel explaining all the amenities. did not work. No instructions on how to get on wifi. Shampoo and conditioner bottles were used and half empty!! It really grossed me out to a point where I wanted to go to a different hotel and literally checked out one day early and forfeted a nights fee. Oh yeah, and half of the outlets in the room did not work. Housekeeping was so slow to get to my room when I needed towels, or more coffee, new bottles of shampoo. When I went out into the hall to ask one of them for some supplies, she had no idea what I was saying because she didn't speak English. It was a joke!! When someone finally came to my room it was a guy wearing a black shirt and pants. No name tag, just looked some person off of the street. No-one seemed legit in this facility. I will not be returning, and I would not recommend.

Pros: The hotel staff was excellent from check-in to check out. Excellent desk staff, excellent breakfast and breakfast staff. Rooms are clean and quiet. Pool area was convenient.

Cons: Bathrooms could stand to be redone, particularly the sink.

1.0 Poor
Cons: It was disgusting
6.3 Good
Cons: I called 3 times to confirm my rooms and requested all 3 times that I have early check in. When I got there my rooms weren’t ready. In a room equipped for 4 people, there were only 2 sets of towels. When I asked for more they didn’t have any. In one of the rooms, after being cleaned for us prior to check in, the refrigerator was full of food.....not sure how long it had been in there. The pool area was so hot you could not sit in there at all and there were no towel either to use.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel, employees, and cleaniness all great! We love the hot tub and indoor pool. That is why we usually stay there. The remodel is great. Great location everything is close by.
Cons: The problem was the beds are too high and mattress very hard. Whoever made the discussion about the height of the beds was not thinking about that it is difficult for children (getting in and out and falling out). Short people not being able to get up on the bed. Elderly people being able to get in and out. We would stay again. But I will make sure I bring the fold up stool that I had to buy while I was there, to get into bed.

3.0 Mediocre
Cons: They didn’t have an elevator. The tub was super dirty! There was a dirty towel in the room when I got in the second room, because the first room had a huge brown stain on the ceiling so I had them switch me room immediately. The staff was playing games on the phone and after they switched my room they locked me Out of my room...THEN the very next day did the same thing again! I will never stay here again. I will pay more next time. They also came in my room at 10am one day (I stayed for 3 days) and they said that it was check out time and I had another stay left.

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: That it was close and convenient to Kings island so it gave it gave us a place to lay down before we drove home
Cons: That the actual price at the hotel was a lot cheaper than using the app but they wouldn't adjust the price. Even though our room had new soap in it the empty soap wrapper from the previous customer was still on the floor so there is no way the floor was swept and there were spiders in the bed in my daughter's room so they were afraid to sleep.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Convenient location to Kings Island and various restaurants.
Cons: Building seems older. Room was small for family of three. The refrigerator and microwave is placed at an awkward place.
