Hotel itself is nice but as others stated kinda outdated. The staff is very nice. If you expect a river view there is a river bank view as shown in one of the pictures I believe someone went back in Mar 2013. Other then that a clean hotel restaurants across the street. Waffle house and I believe a pizza place.

The hotel is very dated and is nothing like I’m used to when staying at the Holiday Inn Express hotel locations. My husband and I just needed somewhere close to the University of Cincinnati hospital to sleep and although this place provided just that, I would not stay there again. The cleanliness was overall lacking. There were hairs in the shower and just sporadically around the room. The key card also had a sticky substance all over it. The room was hot and humid even though it was in the 30s outside, we had to turn the AC on in order to be comfortable. The bed was ok, but again, not like what you get at Holiday Inn Express. You absolutely get what you pay for at this hotel.

I spent 2 nights here as part of a bus tour. Soon after our arrival they had a delicious buffet set up for us in a private room. Our luggage was taken to our rooms promptly & picked up when we were getting ready to leave. Everyone seemed to sleep well & commented on the comfortable beds. Our free breakfast was better than average with plenty of choices & items replaced in a timely manner.

We stayed at the Riverfront as an overnight rest stop. The room was clean and comfortable. We were very impressed by the genuine good natured and friendly hotel staff, particularly Tasha who was working in the dining-room during breakfast.

The rooms are clean, the hotel staff seems to be nice. This is a nice place? I have not had a chance to try the restaurant yet, but I've been told it is really good! You can't go wrong staying here! The only thing, if you pack food there's no microwave, but there's a refrigerator.
