I'm coming up for the Cardinals series this weekend and need a room. I plan on going to Belterra Casino Saturday before the game so any advice on that would be great as well. I'd prefer the motel to be closer to Cincy if possible, I just need something cheap, not real nice, just somewhere where I wont get robbed and can sleep comfortably. Thanks for the help.

Just bring your CSI crime kit with UV light.

I've been to Cincy about 20 times in the last decade for Reds game, and if you don't mind a ten minute drive, the hilton garden in florence is nice.

I came into this thread specifically to make this same joking suggestion. I work at a bar in Newport and Newport police officers do details there. I've heard some great stories about the Travel Lodge.

I recommend the Hyatt Place in Florence, KY. I got tired of paying too much for rooms in downtown Cincy. There really isn't anything to do downtown anyway, so you might as well stay in a nice, clean area just a short drive from the ballpark.

I've stayed at the Hyatt for the last three years and haven't had any complaints. Most recent visit was last weekend for the Cubs series.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, anybody have any experiences at the Belterra poker room?

Second this. Rooms are huge. The place is new.

Too bad El Rancho Rankin is defunct. :D

I've had really good luck in the downtown area and riverfront area using priceline. Almost always find something good in the 4 to 70 buck range.

Just get a room out in Kentucky. Chip will serve as your personal driver for the length of your stay.

I've used Hotwire to get rooms for Bengals and Reds games and Cincinnati Oktoberfest. I actually got cheaper rates for 3-4 star hotels in Downtown Cincinnati, usually the Hyatt Regency or the Millennium, sometimes the Holiday Inn Covington, than the rates at the dreaded Travellodge Newport. So I would definitely recommend Hotwire or Priceline and choosing "3 stars and above" as your search criteria.

Travel Lodge is the 4, right?

We stay at Embassy Suites across the river. It may at first glance appear a little pricey but if you factor in all the alcohol we drink during the two hour "Happy Hour" and the free Continental Breakfast you get in the morning it balances out.

$50/night and FREE parking! How do you pass this place up?;)

Hampton Inn in Covington is pretty cheap, has recently been remodeled, and has a South Bank shuttle stop right outside the entrance.

It has been the stay of choice for my son and me for every Reds game since I have so many Hilton Honors Points accumulated from my company travels.

For a while the shuttle stopped going to the Hampton Inn. Didn't know it started back up.

I've already said it, but again I'll recommend going the Hotwire/Priceline route. Can't beat a 3, 3 1/2 star hotel within walking distance of the ballpark and a shuttle ride/short cab trip to the Newport Hofbrauhaus for around $55-65 bucks. My experience booking straight through the hotels is that you're going to pay $79-99 bucks a night, plus all the local taxes and fees.

No worries, worse case scenario--it is about a $6-8 cab ride from GABP.

And we have a winner for the boys' weekend in Cincinnati next month for the Rockies series. :thumbup:
