Came to Dayton on a business trip. The rooms are nice, pretty standard, but the staff is excellent. They are so accommodating and so friendly. The rooms are also very clean. I will definitely stay here again.

The hotel is by far the best in town! The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful with good variety. Every part of the hotel was neat and clean.

This appeared to be a newer hotel. We had trouble getting the tv to work but the front desk staff was prompt in reacting to the problem & resolved the issue. Beds & pillows were comfy. Room was clean & quiet. Breakfast was tasty with a nice selection.

We stayed here one night on our return back though Dayton. The rooms were big enough to allow for a roll away bed and not have it in the way of doors or other stuff. The beds were comfortable.

The hotel is nice and rooms are clean. However, there's a moldy smell on the hallways, the bed is too short (I'm 5'1 and my feel we're hanging off the bed), and if you are in the first or second floor you can hear everything those in rooms above you are doing.

Quaint hotel, plush rooms. Helpful staff! Good location. No room service and no way to satisfy late night hunger pangs! Great wifi speed. Fitness room could be better though. Scrumptious breakfast - especially the sausages would be worthy of any top class restaurant in Germany or Switzerland!
