Pierce of Deseret News called the pilot "bright, funny and witty" while drawing comparisons to the 1980s NBC sitcom The Golden Girls.[22] Philadelphia Inquirer writer Jonathan Storm deemed the series "funny and fresh" while noting that the actresses "appear to be having the time of their lives."[23] Television columinst Brian Lowry, writing for Variety, spoke positively about the series, lauding the actresses performance and the comedic material utilized. Lowry added that the series "feels as though it could have been on a network lineup 20 years ago, which is surprisingly better than that sounds."[24] Verne Gay, writing for Newsday, called the series "by-the-numbers sitcom with a couple of laughs, an inoffensive premise and four seasoned actresses who make the material much better than it is." Gay notably highlighted White's performance in the series, calling her timing "impeccable" and her "deadpan delivery flawless."[25] TV Guide columnist Matt Roush had a less positive view about the series, writing "I simply hope Hot in Cleveland can give us more than the lukewarm pilot promises. Ohio deserves better, and so do these fabulous ladies."[26]

The full season later went on receive positive reviews. Nick Hartel of DVD Talk deemed the season release as "Recommended". Praising the actresses performances and the mixture of "old sitcom shenanigans" with "a dose of the modern", Hartel called the series "a pleasant, well-acted, old-school sitcom" and "a series that those in need of a good laugh should check out."[27] DVD Verdict writer Brett Cullum deemed the series "giddy silly fun with a rock solid cast and a star who's almost ninety years old."[28] The staff at Us Weekly gave the season 3 and a half stars, writing that "Sitcom pros Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves clearly relish the chance to play rare TV characters -- clever, single middle-aged women -- in this sly series that just gets funnier."[29] Zap2it writer Jay Robbins, writing for Los Angeles Times, praised the lead actresses performances in the season and called White "today's ultimate secret weapon for media success."[30] Troy Patterson of Slate Magazine opined that "The only truly original thing about the show is that its humor feels pitched at an extremely strange audience: Its ideal viewer would seem to have developed all her expectations of what comedy is from watching traditional sitcoms and yet to have no memory of hearing these jokes the first 20 times around."[31]
