Historical Traveler Reviews Terrace Hotel Cincinnati

Not bad at all...good value

from

Booked this hotel on hotwire for $75 with taxes and fees. We were going to a Reds game and wanted a place to stay downtown. Valet parking was full so we parked in a garage that was down a short alley to the hotel. Nine bucks to park overnight. Went in, went to 8th floor to check in. Check in was quick and staff was courteous.

When we got to the room it was somewhat small with two European double beds which appear smaller than our American double beds. My wife and I had been hoping for a King but didn't ask at check in. We were put on the 15th floor. Room was old but clean. Bathroom was also looking a bit old but it was clean.

Left hotel, went to Reds game and dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery. Wasn't bad. After the game, returned to hotel. We were tired so went to bed soon after returning.

Next morning they had a continental breakfast but we didn't get up early enough for that. I took a shower. Good water pressure and water temp. Also, room had a good temp, never adjusted AC. All in all, a great stay for the price.

As we were leaving our elevator stopped on the 9th floor. The people getting on complained they got no sleep the night before due to noise on their floor. Apparently they were supposed to stay more nights but decided against it because of their terrible stay.

If you're a 20-30 something I think you'll be happy with this hotel. This is the hotwire 3 star hotel in the downtown/riverfront area. Will save you approximately $30 by booking on hotwire.

Nice, but noisy.

from

We stayed two days mid-week to attend a Reds baseball game and the Cincinnati Opera. The hotel is very convenient to both. A short walk to the ballpark. A short auto ride to the Opera. There are also many fine restaurants within walking distance.

The rooms seem to be newly redone. The beds were comfortable. The hotel staff was very courteous, though a minor problem communicating with housekeeping added an hour delay to our traveling companion's check in. They do provide a Continental breakfast which is enough to get you on your way.

The biggest problem is sound-proofing. The rooms have very thin walls. The conversations of anyone in the hallway or in the neigboring rooms to either side felt as if they were in our room. So, if someone next door decides to stay up late talking, as one of our neighbors did, you are kept awake until they decide to go to sleep. And, if they decide to get up early, then you do too!

Overall, if you can sleep through the noise, the location and price make this a very viable option when looking to stay in downtown Cincinnati.

Not so great. Room was dirty. Closet door was broken.

from

Room was dirty. I found half eaten remains of a chicken wing on the window sill... Need I say more?

Bedbugs!!!

from

This hotel is disgusting. We got terrible bedbug bites and welts all over our bodies. We were not alone either. There was a group of people talking at the elevator trying to determine how they received so many bites when they had not even been outside. We all stayed on the same floor and we all came to the conclusion that we all had bedbug bites. The manager did comp our room but what about taking care of all those nasty bedbugs? It appeared to us that he was not shocked by the situation.

Just OK... Nothing Special

from

I would actually give this hotel 2 1/2 stars instead of 2, but that wasn't a choice.

First the good things about the Terrace Hotel: Pleasant staff, nice lobby, reasonably clean room (pretty worn furnishings, though), comfortable bed, convenient location (for our visit anyway), bar in lobby looked nice.

Now the problems:

1. Our toilet never flushed properly. We would have to flush 2 or 3 times. Our friends who stayed in the room next to ours had no problems with their toilet, though.

2. Our room was across from the elevators, and the elevators were UNBELIEVABLY loud. I've stayed in hotels where I was close to the elevators before, and sometimes there's a lot of noise, and sometimes there's not much at all. These elevators beat all I've ever seen. It sounded like a wind tunnel every time. There are 4 elevators, so you can imagine how often we heard that loud noise. Definitely request a room far away from the elevators if you stay here.

3. The parking is $20 per night. We thought we were getting a good room deal at $89 per night, but then you add parking and it's not all that great. Maybe that's the going rate for downtown hotels... I don't know. I was just very surprised to hear that when we got there, because we didn't know about ahead of time.

There is a continental breakfast from 6-9am daily, but we didn't find out about it until our second night there. I went down at 9:30 just to see if it was still open, and it was, but it was picked over. There had been cereal, fruit, danishes, muffins, juices, tea, and coffee.

There was nothing really great, and nothing really awful about this hotel. It is going to be renovated soon into a "hotel & residence," so the information in our room said. That's probably a good thing, because the room furnishings are in need of replacing. I don't think I would stay there again, though. Just overall, I wasn't crazy about it.

It Has a Great Location

from

At one time you can tell that this hotel was probably beautiful. But now it is a bit rundown and is in need of some repair and upkeep. The best part of this hotel is the location! We went for a concert and decided to make it an extended weekend. From the hotel we were in walking distance of great restaurants, bars, and shopping...You could even walk to the stadium(s) if you were up to it. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful, but the maid service could be better. If you are on a budget and know that you just need a place to sleep and bathe this is a perfect hotel.

Quiet, Comfortable and Customer Friendly

from

I booked the Terrace Hotel prior to reading the reviews posted. I was a little concerned, but when we arrived I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel lobby was very clean and the front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. The room was an average room, but was clean and comfortable. In fact, the bed was more comfortable than ones I have had in more expensive hotels. We happened to speak with the sales manager that evening and she told us that the hotel was originally going to be closed, but new owners have decided to make some changes and update the common areas and the rooms. I thought the price we paid ($89.00 + taxes - AAA rate) was great for a downtown hotel.

I will definitely rebook this hotel on my next visit to Cincy.

Stay away ROACHES in Room

from

Checked into this dump went to room filthy, ugly,rundown, When i checked bathroom saw very large roach in tub. That was enough checked out went somewhere else Stay at your own risk no kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Worst hotel ever

from

Nothing but problems. Air conditioner broken and I was told "open the window". It is hard to do when you have a 2 year old who might climb out the window and fall 16 stories. We were told that the A/C system is old it takes about "24 hours" to cool off. PLEASE AVOID THIS HOTEL. Room is also dirty. One step above a roach motel. I am surprised you don't have the option to pay by the hour!!!!! Are there any worse ratings than "Terrible"?

Very Nice--Don't believe the whiners and fakers

from

This hotel is very nice. It is centrally located and inexpensive. We paid $40 per night on priceline and it was worth every penny. No, it is not a 4 star hotel and everything is not perfect. BUT, they beds and the rooms were clean, secure, and well appointed. The only negatives were that the pillows were not the most comfortable and the shower could have been hotter.

All things considered this place is a STEAL. To all you whiners posting bad things about this place--stop thinking you are going to get the HILTON at a Motel 6 price. If you want a 4 star hotel, PAY for a 4 star hotel. If the city is more important than your hotel room and you want a great base to explore the Cincy/Covington area, by all means, stay here. You won't regret it, and neither will your pocketbook.

We roll into double-sin city smooth as silk on new pavement welcomed by 100 foot Jesus and escorted on each flank by travelling salesmen, phones lazily dangling from their ears. There must be more of them because every exit offers an assortment of mid-scale inns and motels, sprouting mushroom-like along the edges of the interstate and fed by an even bigger assortment of fast food outlets, some with signs reaching into the sky, taller than ...

... told the church was going to Sunday and gave them no options, except to choose to stay home. Many did as there was no internet to search at that time. Some have yet to find us, as there are still many that haven't given up the truth they learned. Those who find us find the same message they heard years ago.

Having just returned from one of my favorite meals to possibly one of the worse hotels I've ever stayed in, I figured it was time for an update.

Having spent a few weeks in Atlanta it was time for a move, it looked at one point that move would be to Mcbee, South Carolina, a place which has four streets, one shop and an office. Why the office is there I do not know, having been there a few years back the aim was to bypass the little town and head into the big time.
