This was my second time staying at the Best Western Plus Dayton South. My family will likely continue to come back whenever we visit friends and family because of the reasonable price, convenient location, clean rooms (with refrigerator), friendly staff, and the pool.
It's mostly about having all the things we expect a hotel room to have. The beds are firm but comfortable enough. All the table lamps have electrical outlets on their bases, which makes charging all our electronic devices a breeze. The AC works as one would expect it to work, and isn't exceptionally loud. The front desk has anything a guest might have forgotten (in our case, a toothbrush). The wifi is free. The continental breakfast is one of the better ones I've enjoyed, complete with a waffle iron, coffee and juice and milk, fixings for breakfast sandwiches, cold cereals, pastries, fruit, etc.
That's not to say there aren't negative points -- luckily, though, they're not dealbreakers. For example, the pool is dated and in need of minor cosmetic repairs, and it's sometimes dirty and slippery in spots. It's also not obvious where to get beach towels (although, if there are beach towels, I suspect the front desk would have them), so we just brought our room towels. When we got back to our room and needed to hang dry our swimsuits, we discovered that the curved shower curtain rods, while nice for increasing perceived size of the shower, made drip-drying our wet things problematic, since the drips fell outside the tub area. There was also not a retractable clothesline in the shower that I could find.
One of the double beds in our room was on a jerry-rigged frame, with wooden boards sticking out several inches from the bed. (I chose that bed and let my young son have the other bed.)
Also -- almost not worth mentioning -- the "Guest Choice" coffee that comes in the room for use with the in-room coffeemaker is much weaker than I would have preferred. Next time I won't bother with the one-cup coffeemaker, and I'll just wait to get my coffee downstairs.
As I said, though, the negative points are minor and certainly not a reason for us to seek out a different hotel next year. The Best Western Plus Dayton South is our go-to when we visit family on the south side of Dayton. less
