Just don't waste your time. There are plenty of other perfectly fine hotels in Dayton to bother with this one as long as it in under the current (August 2017) GM, Tina Gill I believe was her name. The staff is poorly trained and both the GM and staff treat all guest as if they are...for lack of a better way to put it...trash. The hotel evidently has issues in the past and was a locale that seedy locals hung out. It has now been remodeled and at first glance it looks lovely!!! That's where the positive starts. Extremely high $200 deposit for a 3 night stay. BROKEN/Unlocked Backdoor that's open 24/7 to the public. A front desk that's never manned. The key machine was broken while we were there so you could have 1 key and if that messed up they had to let you in and out of your room. Cleaning was -just ok- but the sheets were too small for the old worn out mattresses. The GM is rude and unprofessional and it shows in her staff. Don't. Waste. Your. Money. Choice Hotels customer relations will listen but they can't do anything and don't really care because they are individually owned. Disappointed all around. STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!
We arrived to find the hotel door security system had malfunctioned and key cards were not working. The staff already had plans in motion to escort guests to their rooms and relock the doors after the guests depart the rooms on errands or to check out. One lady was running laps to take care of the guests as rooms were being checked in, checked out or unattended. She was committed to take care of everyone. Great attitude from all the staff. Good breakfast. Parking is well lit. The room was clean, and well stocked. Good for a family or business traveler on a thinner budget. Lots of restaurants on Miller road with plenty of delicious choices.
On our stay the master key card reader went out so the clerk had to let everyone in their rooms - both coming and going. The evening clerk there when we checked in was very nice and quite up for the challenge the evening hours would bring when every one was busy out at dinner and such - she was very good. The room was comfortable - some updates - it was clean - The location is on restaurant alley and local to gas stations, Sam's Club - Walmart - Goodwill and many other smaller stops - right off the interstate very convenient. This is a $50 hotel / convenience plays a factor - but 2 star - to upgrade go to the Hampton or Marriott -
My sons baseball team needed a night by night hotel due to a crazy tournament schedule. They were accommodating as far as that went. When we first pulled in you could see the place needed some TLC. It looks old and run down. As I said, you get what you pay for. First, there were no keys so you had to ask to be let in your room every time. What an inconvenience!!! The rooms were not sound proof so you could hear everything(again it's old). The rooms themselves were just OK. Beds seemed clean which is the most important. Staff was not very friendly. The manager, Tina, was very rude. Breakfast was til 9am. She literally took food out of a child's hand at 8:58 and said breakfast was over. Really?!! Let's just say this was my one and only time staying at a Comfort Inn.
Comfort Inns are usually quite good. It can as quite a surprise then when we walked into this motel and immediately encountered a very musty smell. The receptionist asked if we had a reservation and then said,"Well, if I have anything it won't be on first floor." We asked if there was an elevator and again a surprise-"No." Based on this "reception" we chose to go elsewhere.
Walking into the room we noticed the smoke alarm was tightly covered with a Walmart sack. Room had a strange/minty odor ...maybe to cover smoke smell? Safety latch on the door BROKEN IN TWO and screws coming out of the wall. Our room 117 faced the entrance of the busy motel next door noisy. Plastic cup left in the shower. Furnished shampoo bottle was half empty. Opened food left in the refrigerator. Both beds saggy in the middle. Fitted sheet too small and came of in the night. YUCK. Even though we had the TV volume turned up all the way, we had to sit on the foot end of the bed to hear it. We had a long drive, long day or would have left.
We normally stay in Comfort Inn / Quality Inns and expect about the same level of quality from one city to the next. We didn't think it was a huge gamble to stay at this one, which had a lower than average rate for the area, but I guess you get what you pay for. First, when we arrived, we were told the hotel was overbooked. The clerk did not seem overly concerned or apologetic about this, but she did find us an alternative room. We had booked a room with two queen beds, but the clerk offered us a room with a king bed and a pull-out sofa. That sofa was broken, so we had to be moved to another room. The air conditioning in the new room was not working well, but we were too tired to complain and were not hopeful there would be another option. That said, we slept well and had no further interruptions once we got settled in. It would have been nice to be offered a discount due to them providing us with a different room than what we paid for. The rooms themselves were just so-so, and there was a funky smell when we first went in. Breakfast options very limited. I have stayed in other Comfort Inns and usually have a great experience, so this was disappointing.
Building felt dingy and old, with a funky smell, but we were just passing thru after a long drive that day after a business conferencel.... areas on the wall had been repaired and just the patch repainted (and the paint was a different color than the rest of the wall....gave a feeling of lack of interest to detail). The second floor only had an entrance on the each side, so if you're in the middle, then you have to walk a bit (no problem, unless you are carrying luggage.).. Rooms felt tiny and dark, even though it had a refrigerator behind a door in cabinet and a microwave. Beds were a bit lumpy..but we were so tired after a long drive, it didn't matter. Breakfast left much to be desired, prepackaged danish/muffins, you prepare waffle iron, funky egg 'discs', juices, coffee, 3 or 4 choices of bland dry cereal and packets of oatmeal. Accommodations we ok for just one night sleep after getting in after 8 PM.... best thing about the motel? The Cracker Barrel next door!
We stayed in room 127. The room was very clean and bed was extremely comfortable! We were concerned Bout the stay because there are so many negative comments on here. But because the price was cheaper than most places we could find, it had a hot breakfast and we were only going to be there to sleep, We decided to stay. The room does show some signs of wear but it was just cosmetic. The staff was nice and cordial and accommodating. A lot of times you get what you expect and we did just that. Had a very nice stay. Thank you!
Our stay was June 11. We booked 2 months ago, nobody said anything about construction. When I saw that in lobby, I raised the issue of lower rates, since I could've booked online currently for less. He refused to grant me any, and rewarded me instead with a small bag of chips. Next morning I went to the lobby, and asked where I could read and work my computer. He had one light on in the breakfast nook, so I had to go there. Finding anything on TV was a joke; guide only gave 3-letters for each station, no "info" and a terrible Cisco remote that we not user-friendly. We had to turn the light on constantly to do anything. Just doing a sequential move up the channels was tough--several large gaps in the numbering. It's several miles away from I-75, too. This is not the place, folks!
