Guest Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Face the wall Overall this is a good place to stay. Location is good, hotel seems well maintained and staff is well trained. The only drawback for me was that my room was facing a wall not four feet away from my window! I do not know if the building in back of the hotel was an after thought and added later but a few rooms on the 2nd floor face the wall of this building which may be meeting rooms or serve another purpose but definitely a part of the hotel. Not a very pleasant experience to face a wall especially when it is a nice day outside! I seriously doubt the hotel was full so I would think that these few rooms WITHOUT a view would be sold last, especially to a Platinum member, one of your road warriors! February 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A pleasant surprise We chose the Kent, Ohio location as a good option in relation to our travel plan. What we did not expect was the experience of discovery that came with our visit to a downtown area restaurant that your staff recommended. That was followed the next morning by a short driving tour of the history-laden campus of Kent State University All of this added up to another very enjoyable stay with Holiday Inn Express.
