For our 55th year reunion of the University of Detroit Aeronautical Engineer graduates, we chose Dayton (Wright Patterson AFB) as our location. One of our classmates lives in Dayton and set up the reunion. The Hope Hotel, next to WPAFB was inexpensive and convenient to the Air Force Museum which we all wanted to visit. The hotel is not elegant,...

We got lost finding this hotel, which is adjacent to an Air Force base, but the military check point staff were friendly and helpful in setting us back on the right track. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and bed was comfortable after a long day at Hamvention. We will gladly stay again next year!

I stayed here while at a course on the AF base. Being on/next to base is very convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant downstairs is good. The conference center area looks nice. But the rooms are just meh. I've stayed at worse DOD lodging and I've stayed at better. The rooms are clean but kind of dated....

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff goes above and beyond to help. The rooms are clean and the housekeeping crew is tops. The pub located in the hotel Packy's has some of the best food you can find in the area. The banquet that the hotel put on for our group was top shelf...

The Hope refers to Bob Hope, and I bet he would be concerned about conditions here. Today checked in and had maintenance here three times...once the key cards did not work, second, with no signal in TV, and third no dial tone on phone. Soap and shampoo in dispensers like you see in restrooms, and not in wrapped or sealed...

The Hope Hotel is a government ILPP-sponsored hotel and if you are traveling to Wright-Patt on taxpayer dime, chances are you will be staying here. Honestly, there is no reason you should willingly spend your own money here when literally every other hotel in the greater-Dayton area would be cheaper and of superior quality. If you are one of the...

The night we checked in, the two people working were very rude. The man was apparently new (which I found out later). He charged my bank card that I used to hold the reservation with instead of the one I gave him at check in, messing up my bank account, then he erased it in the computer, and acted like...

We, The Wright-Patt Enlisted Spouses Club, had our Spring Bazaar at the Hope Hotel on March 4th . We used one of their larger banquet rooms. It was set up and ready when we got there. Everything looked beautiful, clean and organized. The staff was amazing at meeting all of our needs.

There's nothing fancy about this place, and that's okay, but the room rate that they charge is hard to justify. Nicer hotels can be stayed at for a cheaper rate (trust me, we all checked). The WiFi is lacking, any time after 7pm, the speeds disappear to nothing to where you're better off going to Starbucks if you need to...
