We stayed at the Kirkwood Inn on April 21-April 23. After having a reservation at another hotel that was not up to par we called the Kirkwood to see if they had any rooms available. It was a busy weekend but they were able to get us a room. Upon checking you could tell this was a nice place to...

The Kirkwood is an old style motel without the dirt and mold usually found in the more established motels. Kirkwood is clean, the service is great and the grounds are unmatched. Nicely landscaped with walking paths and water features. Breakfast is included in an 200 year old restored house and is light years ahead of what you are used to...

I would highly recommend the Kirkwood Inn for anyone traveling in the southern Ohio area. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast was amazing and you couldn't get a better breakfast at a restaurant!! The breakfast was served in a separate historic farmhouse with a garden and fountain. We were on a...

Unique motel with a historic over two century old farm house where they serve a fabulous free breakfast in an antique filled and elegant setting! Motel rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Truly a hidden jem in the myriad of run of the mill chain hotels with mediocre breakfast buffets. The grounds feature a lovely garden and a walking path...

I found this place online and took a risk. What a find. Off the main path but close to everything. Staff was so friendly and nice. So appreciative that we stayed with them. Breakfast was great in a home on the property. A very nice change of pace. Not to mention the biscuits and gravy. WOW! Not crowded. Very quaint....

My husband and I decided to stay at Kirkwood Inn as a stay-cation. We got the Jacuzzi suite. The tub was very spacious and relaxing.The room was clean. Food was amazing. Staff was also very nice. Would love to stay again in the spring.

We used to live nearby but now live far away. It's nice coming back to the area to visit and staying here. During the summer it's pricey because of Kings Island but in the off season it's a super bargain. It's better than the chain hotels and less expensive. There's a historic house next door near the gazebo where they...
