We were participating in a very busy coaster event at King's Island around thousands of people all day. A friend and several others recommended The Shaker Inn in Lebanon Ohio.

We went to Lebanon for the weekend. The Shaker Inn was clean and the owner was wonderful. The location was perfect for us. We definitely will stay again next time we are in town. If you are looking for clean reasonable place to lay your head for the night , this is the place.

We stayed one night at this family-owned motel. Check-in was smooth with the desk person being very nice. The motel is conveniently located & is in a nice, safe area. Our room was clean & passed my bed-check inspection. I recommend this motel & will stay here again. The rate makes it hard to beat!

Whenever I travel I prefer to eat at local restaurants and stay at locally owned hotels. This motel was clean, convenient, and a joy to find. The WIFI connection was the best I have had and I was in the very end unit. A very pleasant experience and it was only .2 miles from my family.

We stayed here to go to Kings Island for the day. It was a nice stop, pretty impressed with cleanliness and closeness to KI! The bed wasn't to bad, maybe add a memory foam on top. Would return and maybe check out next visit.

We read great reviews of this motel in advance of decision to stay there. It was good for our kids to see this type of "motor lodge" in comparison to usual box motel/hotel chains.
