Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 178 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location We've stayed here twice while visiting Kent State. It will definitely be our go-to hotel when in the area. Rooms are nice and everyone is very friendly. June 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bathroom The bathroom was large enough to actually close the door. The vent fan worked and was quiet. The room was very warm, and took a long time to cool down. Would have been nice to walk into a cooler room. June 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will be back This location served us well as our visit required time in Akron and Kent. The staff was very friendly and the location was a clean pleasent place to stay. The internet service was a bit of a challenge to gain access. We will return to this location in the future. June 27, 2015
