    Really huge and really sad
    This place is HUGE.... Great pool area. But that's all I can write about. Just making someplace the biggest doesn't make it any good. The negative reviews are right. I wouldn't come here unless there is a pride Fest. The bad: steam room is large, but doesn't steam up to well and very dingy. It made from cement that is poorly crafted to feel like a cave. Then there is huge uncomfortable rock beds for guys to lay on. Strange design. Upstairs has a huge floor of rooms... But that's it. Kinda boring. I went three times on my visit, never really saw any of them open. Upstairs is a big open room where guys could mingle... But there wasn't much to brag about. However, that's were you hang when your looking for a dude. I really don't recommend this place.

    Definitely An Experience You Do Not Want To Miss
    The facilities are very impressive. The entire complex is an immense labyrinth the goes on and on. The outdoor pool is heated, the roof top beach has a nice skyline view of Cleveland, and all the inside facilities feel clean, not spotless but definitely very clean. The attached gym has a great selection of current equipment in good working condition. I did not have a drink at the bar but it looked okay though the bartender was not friendly. The pricing is very reasonable for what you get. My one day membership and standard room was $32.00 all together. I did not see any of the hotel parts but heard good things about them from a regular. The indoor attractions such as the pools, saunas, lounges and movie room well exceeded my expectations. The dungeons and glory hole areas were nice but more standard fair. The steam room was huge and had a primal cave man design, which i liked. However the steam room did have puddles. The standard rooms on the second floor were good, but they did not have lockers in them you instead use a locker at the front desk. The also had a large wooden bench with a pillow and sheets but not a mattress or cushion. The first floor upgraded rooms had nice beds with real sheets and duvets with a bedside stand and chair. There was plenty of room for 4-6 people if you do not mind being close. The crowd was the typical for most bathhouses that I have been to: about 10% of the guys were college age, 25% were very attractive, 40% were good looking or better and the remaining 60% were older, not in shape and less than okay looking. I had a pushiness/trailing problem with a very small portion of the older guys (2 in my case), which has never happened to me before before at other bathhouses, as soon as I was vocally loud about it in a crowded area it stopped though. A couple local regulars I talked to said Saturday nights and the Monday specials are the busiest times. I was there on a Friday night and there were probably 60-75 guys there. The location is 2600 Hamilton Ave, Yelp had another address listed that I went to first. It is in a sketchy part of the city so walk swiftly. The path was mainly just abandoned roads when I was walking there at 11:00pm. Note that you must go through the parking lot entrance to get to the entrance to the spa I walked around the building for a while trying to figure out how to get in worried that it was closed. The staff, aside from the cleaning staff who were very congenial, were not rude but they were not polite either. They were just monotonous and not well trained. No greetings when I came in or left for the night and the minor difference between not asking â
