Pet Friendly, YES. Comfortable bed...really, I actually slept late. Clean, big room. The buffet breakfast is one of the best for road weary travelers. Love the high ceilings in the breakfast room, adds a bit of elegance.

Nice location. My husband prefers this location because it is right at an interstate 71, 74 and 75 exit. We also get free breakfast and seem to get good nights of restful sleep here. Probably will stay here again next year.

We got into town very late at night and checked in, out first room had been gone through by someone that came in the patio door. All the drawers were open, there was grass in the bed, spider webs in the corner above the bed and the room smelled like an ashtray. We got a new room, again the patio door was unlocked but it didn't seem as someone had gone through the room but there were dead bugs between the two beds, the mattresses are stuffed into large bags and the room again smells like an ashtray.. needless to say we left and got a room at Spring Hill suites uptown.. it was awesome. I wouldn't recommend anyone stay at this place..

This property is reasonably priced and is in a great location right off of I-74. It is a lot cheaper than staying in Downtown Cincinnati. Skyline Chili is located within walking distance of this hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

First, let me say that the lady at the front desk was very kind and accommodating! Our room was large with plenty of space, but in need of new carpet and wallpaper...very tired looking! My husband could get on the WiFi, but it wouldn't let me connect.

Dependable rooms with a good location to my local assignments. reception was friendly and efficient. Located close to the Cincinnati west airport. Easy breezy in and out with no stay issues. Highly recommend

When we checked into this hotel, the staff was friendly and helpful. When we went to our room, the hallway smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. I mentioned something to the person at the front desk and they seemed unconcerned about it. Thankfully, the smell was not in our room as well. When we made the reservation, we were assured that the hotel had a pool, but when we got there, they said it wasn't open for the season yet. That would have been nice to know sooner. At breakfast the next morning, the serving utensils were all clumped into a common holder rather than placed with each item. As someone with food allergies, this was very unsettling as it meant that any of the utensils could have been used for any of the items offered, practically ensuring cross-contamination. My kids grabbed a milk to use on their cereal only to find that it was frozen. The pancakes were only half cooked and the staff was slow to refill items as they were used up. Ironically, this was the only hotel I've seen where the kitchen staff had the audacity to put out a tip jar. Needless to say, we didn't contribute.

A pleasant hotel with friendly staff. We travel a lot with our small dog and enjoyed the ground-level walk-out sliding door. A couple picnic tables and charcoal grills overlooking the pool. It is not a new structure, but the room was clean and the A/C worked very well. Built on a hill, the first floor is actually a level down from the front desk.

We pre-paid through Leisure Group with Holiday Inn Rewards and were put in a room on the lower level - same level as the meeting rooms and breakfast buffet. That was OK, Although we had not requested it, the room was handicap accessible. The shower on the sliding pole would not stay in place for use in a reasonable manner. The maid service had not been too the room until after 3:00 p.m. They did not take any of the used towels, even those on the floor. The dust accumulated on the furniture. The tissue box was never re-filled. It was quiet however, and since there were busses of school children the first night, I imagine we were given this location so as not to be in the midst of the school trips.

Another great stay at this Holiday Inn Express Cincinnati West. Stayed two nights, no issues other than a bit of dusty surfaces. Left housekeeping a note about the dust, but they seemed to have forgot. (they did take the nice monetary tip, but didn't dust as asked) Oh well. Beds were very comfortable, bathroom clean, floor was not loud even though the hotel was packed. Breakfast was nice and hot and plenty. Very glad our "go-to" hotel in Cincinnati (for our purposes) is keeping up their great quality and friendliness.
