We have stayed in this hotel several times. We get the 2 bedroom suite. It has a nice living room and is very large family friendly. Our children love the pool and hot tub.
Our family of 8 stayed 3 nights at the Homewood Suites in Florence, KY when we visited the nearby Creation Museum. We booked a 2 bedroom suite, which had a furnished kitchen (fridge, microwave, sink, stove, dishes, utensils, dishwasher, etc--no oven in our room), a small table with 3 chairs, and a living room with easy chair, pull-out sleeper sofa, and TV. The bedrooms were on either side of the living room, both separated by doors. Both bedrooms were very big and had their own TVs (3 total). One had a king size bed (LOTS of extra room to fit a pack n play and luggage) and a full bathroom with the sink separate from the tub and toilet. The other bedroom had 2 queen beds, a big closet, and plenty of extra room for luggage, a pack n play, and room to spare! This room had another full bathroom with the large sink area separate from the tub and toilet. Our large family did not feel cramped at all, which can be unusual in hotel rooms!
The kitchen was on the small side and the table was not nearly big enough to seat 8, but that was not a problem for us because breakfast AND dinner (M-Th) were included! We used the kitchen to prepare our lunches for the day, and it was nice to have a full-size fridge and freezer to store our cold items. The breakfast and dinner had enough variety that everyone (even small and picky ones) could find something to eat, though if you needed to, there is a Walmart right around the corner where you could buy something to prepare in your kitchen. There is also a large square table in the buffet area that seats 8, a very rare find! I would recommend you arrive early enough to eat, because they did run out of some food items a couple of times. The food area was very busy and even though there was a table large enough to accommodate us, we had to split up among different tables a few times because it was occupied. Free drinks (wine and beer) were also available during dinner, which I have never seen before.
The pool and hot tub were a great way to relax after 2 days touring the Creation Museum, which was a 10-15 minute drive from the hotel. I also used the business center briefly which is centrally located between the pool and buffet area. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and when we arrived around 8pm on a Sunday night after a long day of driving with our 6 kids, one of the staff baked a fresh batch of cookies for them! I have already recommended this hotel to several friends, and will definitely stay there again when we are back in the area.

We stayed at this hotel during our spring break trip to NKY/Cincinnati. It was the perfect home base. We all fit into one 2-BR suite, with room to spare. Breakfast and dinner were included, as long as you got back to the hotel before 7, which we did just to save $ on dinner every night! The food at every meal was great, there was enough variety to satisfy even our pickiest eaters! We swam in the indoor pool every night which was the perfect way to burn off the extra energy before bedtime. The room was immaculate, service was wonderful, the employees gracious and courteous. Homewood Suites has won a customer for life. I definitely recommend them to any family. With a rate of $139 a night including two meals a day for a family with five kids, you absolutely can't beat it!!
