Lots of Problems

I booked this hotel to attend the NCAA tournament and stayed 3 nights. The first night our room was not cleaned by early evening so we decided not to have it done. The next day they did not change the sheets on the bed and we had to request to have them changed. It took over 45 minutes to have a blow dryer delivered to our room and the room was hot (fan wouldn't blow cool air). The pool was closed the entire time and the elevators both broke down by the last day, so we had to carry our luggage down 12 flights. The garage attached to the hotel had no elevator or stairs so had to walk up/down the ramps to get to our car. The staff was very nice given what they had to put up with (constant complaints!).

Great downtown location. However, needs updating!

This hotel was close to the convention ctr. However, the pool was closed for the weekend which is the main reason choosing this downtown hotel. The whole place just needs a facelift. The rooms still had the old box tv which the picture would "jump" or get lines through the screen. I had to pay $3.99 for a Disney show my kids watch at home. They did give me the show for free since I complained the pool was closed. I turned the fan in my room off, but wanted to turn it back on the middle of night and it wouldn't turn on at all. The knob was broke off. The toliet paper holder fell off while getting toliet paper. Just needs some TLC all over! The front desk were very nice and I didn't complain because they were overrun with compliants the weekend of my stay.

The Happy Hotel (Reference to muppet movie)

Normally I am pretty easy going when it comes from Hotels but this falls way below even the inexpensive chains. The worst problem was parking. There is a nine story garage attached to the hotel that does not have enough spaces for the guest and does not have a elevator. You have to be in good physical shape to walk up to the ninth level of the parking garage. There was no valet parking. The second problem was the towels. Took a shower in the morning, dried of and put the wet towels on the floor to be replaced. That night we wanted to take a shower and found the towels were wet because they did not replace the towels. They just folded them up and put them back. When questioned the front desk about that they said they replace the towels every other day. There is no sign that says that and all hotels replace towels that are left on the floor. Next Problem was the heat. The outside temperature was over 40 degrees and the heater did not give enough heat to keep the room wrong. Next problem was they gave me the key to a guest room that was already occupied. They changed my room to an unoccupied room. Other minor problems.... 1. Did not have a shower cap or a blow dryer in the room. Had to ask for it. 2. Had to ask for more toilet paper 3. Did not replace the paper cups in the room after they were used. 4. Did not replace the shampoo in the room after it was used. 5. The free breakfast was at the low end of acceptability compared with other hotels in the same price range. 6. Did not have a suitcase stand that most hotels have. Good things (I was room 607) There was two rooms and they were both quite large. You could probably stick 20 teenagers in there if they would sleep on the floor.

what a let down!

What a let down! The hotel is located in a very run down area. There is really nothing in the area. We had a difficult time finding a place to eat and settled for a Subway which was even limited because the ovens were broke. The hotel may have been nice back in the 80's but it is showing signs of disrepair. The pool area was closed. The bathroom is very small, no exhaust fan, no guide to area restaurants. The windows were so dirty you couldn't even see out them, and they didn't shut and latch. It seemed like the internet made this place look high end but in reality it wasn't worth the money or the inconvenience.

Dayton Grand Hotel

The staff is very attentive and helpful. Very accommodating. The rooms are clean but the hotel shows its age. Breakfast is served but no lunch nor dinner is available at the hotel. At night, outside the hotel, darkness brings a little angst when one sees the nightfolk about. The hotel warns that it is not responsible for your safety in the parking garage. The parking garage has an insufficient number of parking spaces. Still,if you are working downtown, or close by, the hotel is an acceptable place to stay; I had a great response from various staff members and wish them well in their efforts to improve the hotel and its offerings. Overall, It was a more positive experience rather than a negative one.

This hotel is tired

Not bad for the price I paid. I couldn't get the temp in the room to get below 80 degrees. Had to wake up in the middle of the night and try to rig up something so the little cool air that was coming out of the AC to be pointed towards the bed.

Good for price

Location was within walking distance of the club. Room was very big, but with two small double bed (sleeping 4 adults) and very small bathroom. Needs some updates, but was nice to a night sleep and price

it was convenient and needs quite a bit of work

hotel was convenient, but has not been brought up to usual hotel standards for the price that they are charging. the air conditioning and heating system is non-functional, the pool has been closed indefinitely, the elevator sounds like it is going to break down. redeeming qualities were the staff was friendly, attentive, and tried to be as helpful as possible. the houskeeping service was very good, clean. breakfast was average but had good condiments, real butter, 2 flavors of cream cheese, fresh fruit, etc.
