“Nice area; roomy space”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed here because we couldn't find a booking closer to the Lawrenceburg casinos. The space was quite roomy, and the area was clean. Nice breakfast, and there's a large, new-ish shopping center just a hop and skip down the street.

The only downside was the bed itself. It was rather hard, wiggly, and sort of caved in a bit in the middle. But it wasn't a deal breaker. We did smell smoke a bit. We're not smokers, but faint smoke smells don't offend us, so that wasn't a big issue. We stayed on the main floor, so if occasional cig smell offends you, you might want to choose the upper floors.

A pleasant stay; if Lawrenceburg is booked, we'd gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor if you want to make sure there's no wafting smoke odor.

Jaxrabbit,
Thank you for the review comments. Our staff does a terrific job pampering our guests and keeping the hotel safe and clean. We cater to many people at the Holiday Inn Express Cincinnati West, including those that smoke and those with pets. Its not easy trying to keep the smell of smoke isolated, however we will do a better job.

We recently purchased new mattresses for an entire floor, come give them a second try.

What will it take to make us your choice hotel when visiting the Casinos? When the Horseshoe Casino opens in late 2012, please give us a call.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Sincerely,
General Manager

Stayed here for four nights while visiting family. The desk, housekeeping and breakfast staffs were excellent. They had a very good variety of breakfast items in the very large breakfast area, with tv and fireplace. The room was very nicely appointed and very clean. They have a flat screen TV, large desk and two phones and a choice of soft or firm pillows. All furniture, bedding and drapes were excellent. The separate vanity area is large and very nice. This hotel is about 1-2 years old and still looks new. We would definitely stay here again and our daughter and son-in-law had another room and this was their second time to stay at this location.

Very clean. Very friendly. Up to date. The best breakfast area in a free-breakfast hotel that I've seen in a long time. Nice selection including eggs, sausage, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal and an automatic pancake (not waffles) maker - I never saw one of those before. About 20 tables in a huge airy room with a 2 story fireplace and big wondows, all kept stocked and clean by a friendly lady named Donna.

I am a the student pastor at a church in the Indianapolis area and I brought about 40 students to this hotel for our yearly ski trip. This was our first time staying at the hotel and I was a bit curious as to how the hotel would be and how the hotel staff would respond to that many teenagers. :) We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean, well-kept and beautiful and the staff was very helpful and courteous, even when we ate most of their food in the breakfast area. The breakfast area attendant was especially kind and helpful to us, though I can't recall her name exactly. The Great Room (breakfast area) was very spacious and beautiful and my students had a great time hanging out there in the evenings. All in all, we had an amazing time on our trip and we are planning on making this hotel a part of our ski trip each year from now on. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. Thanks Holiday Inn Express Cincy.

My husband and I had occasion to stay here for one night in August 2011. That was a good experience, so I booked for two nights when I was again visiting friends and family over Thanksgiving. I wasn't disappointed. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, and had a small microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, and additional outlets in the lamp bases for charging electronics -- loved that! It was very quiet and the bed most comfortable -- I slept like a baby. As others have mentioned, the breakfast room is lovely, and the breakfast itself more extensive than most in that you can get hot items -- eggs, waffles and pancakes are available in addition to the usual cereal, bagels, muffins, etc. I would give it a 5 except that I recall from summer that the pool deck was in need of repair from the hillside shifting. Is it a lavish resort -- no, but for the price, it is an exceptional, restful, pleasant place to stay. I'll do so again on my next trip "back home"!

Stayed here over a weekend for the location. Stay didn't get off to a great start when front desk clerk made me wait while she took other phone calls and did paper work.......I was the only one standing there, waiting to check in, while my family stood to the side with all our luggage. Room is not as nice as it appears in hotel photos and there is definitely a smoky smell to the entire place. Room only had 3 sets of towels for a Double Queen. Beds were uncomfortable and there was a shortage of parking spots.

Only positive was that it was quiet (despite the full parking lot) on a Saturday night and the breakfast had a good variety as well as a friendly staff person who was constantly refilling items and cleaning up spills.

Nice location, and we had a great time except for the rush of smoke from the front doors to our room. We specifically requested a non-smoking room (we hate smoke smells). We're in the room relaxing and all of a sudden we get this strong odor of cigarette smoke. I went to the front desk to ask what gives, and he said that there was a big work crew staying over and they all gathered outside the front door to smoke. When the sliding doors open, a rush of air comes in carrying the smoke down the front hall and around the corner to our room, which had a half-inch gap under the door. Bad enough that this is the design ... we ended up putting towels in front of the opening to block it. Shouldn't have to do that.

Room Tip: If you want to avoid smoke traveling via the floor from the front entrance, avoid the 2nd (main) flo...
