Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TimT53 Needs updating
The overall stay was fine, but the hotel elevators are in need of maintenance. Sometime the elevator doors won't open and other times they close too quickly. The rooms need a simple upgrade to provide more plug-ins for all the new devices that need charging. Many hotels now have plugs on the lamps, but our room did not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Murphy6 Great place to stay.
My wife, son and I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Riverfront, Covington. The hotel is quiet and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The manager Gus spoke with us personally and made sure things were to our satisfaction. I would stay here again and recommend to everyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VitoF Great Stay
From the time we entered the hotel till the time we left, we were treated like we were the only ones in the hotel. Everyone was so helpful and courteous. We went for a Reds baseball game and the shuttle picks you up at the front door and drops you off after the game. The breakfast buffet was reasonably priced.
Overall, A Fabulous Stay

Got in late, but they had our 2 rooms for us. This was a lady weekend doing the World's Longest Yard Sale on Rt,127 690 miles of vendors. So we wanted a clean room and it was. Sorry we had no time for the pool, it looked nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MDR56 Pleasant staff - old property
This property is staffed by caring people, but the facility is very dated. The AC in our room rattled throughout the night and parking lot lights shown through the curtains. It is very convenient to a variety of featured locations, and it is reasonably priced compared to other nearby properties. The immediate area is pretty sketchy, but we felt safe on the property. There is a convenient city shuttle service for stadium activities and the aquarium.

Great place to stay to attend Reds games. An easy shuttle for a dollar to the game. Hotel staff was friendly and responsive. Bar was very nice and beer was inexpensive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NYNJTNOH Sounds better on paper
Pulled in to Covington ready to check in to the Hotel. Across the road is a McDonald's so decided to pull in for a bite. The homeless panhandlers were out in full force. Not the best location, and my wife feared for her life. So beware of the neighborhood.
As for the room, the staff were clinical in their approach, not rude but not friendly. Gave me the key and told us where to park and get to the room. The next morning at checkout, was told I had had a phone call, but there was no indication that we had a call, nor did the phone ring. Not sure who's call I missed.
Linens were clean, but when you look at the pillowcases, they are marked FIRM or SOFT. Problem was, all were soft.
Finally, the hotel is near a freight train track and, by the sound of the engines, a rail yard. Yes, you will hear the trains at night.
For those who are confused about the differences between Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express when it comes to breakfast, only the Express has the free breakfast. The buffet was standard, although the eggs and home fries were cold. Took someone about 5 minutes to come in to the dining area to recognize she actually had customers (and there were about 4 families waiting for service).

A terrible experience. I had a $250 pair of sunglases disappear out of my room. The assistant GM was supposed to get back to me after they completed their "investigation" I never heard anything. Anytime I went to ask him where the investigation stood he was never in the office. He did call me once to tell me they did a key audit, but I was never contacted again. I gave up and went to Dicks and bought a new pair. Very disappointed.
Also, I was in town for 10 days and they never vaccuumed the room.

Great location if going to a Reds or Bengals game. Trolly to Cincinnati is only a $1 per person and less than a block away from HI or take a 25 minute walk to the stadium. Only complaints are the rooms are a little outdated and a $10 per person charge for breakfast.

The noise was horrendous. Between the truck noise from the interstate, fireworks from a nearby stadium, and the window air-cons I would say that the decibel-level was close to that of a rock concert, except no rhythm. This hotel is overpriced for what you get. As a platinum member I was disappointed

Hotel is in a great location to access all points of Cincinnati and Newport area. Also very close to Riverbend concert venue. We had a junior suite and the room was clean, ready for our early arrival and the mini fridge and microwave were nice to have for our stay. Didn't try the lounge but menu looked good and the whole hotel overall was very clean.

My boyfriend and I stayed here after a concert at the Great American Ballpark. I'm so glad we chose this place. The staff was awesome and the bed was super comfortable. I usually don't write reviews but they deserve it!

In regards my stay at Holiday inn cincinnati river-front, I did not have any problem during it, but I expected to find a newer hotel. I found some facilities old and I think the hotel needs a refurshment. Hotel staff was great. The price-quality rate was also not as expected.

While we were there for only one night the room was very clean, quite and comfortable sleeping. It was also close to many things by taking the tram/bus which was inexpensive. We would definitely stay there again.

WE had a weekend stay here, the hotel was clean, the staff at the front desk were polite and helpful. The location was good, as you are close the aquarium and downtown area, we were 5 miles form the zoo and about 25 minutes from Kings Island. If we ever make it back to the area I would stay here again.
