No real issues, typical Hampton inn, good service and clean, but you can tell it has had some wear and tear and is in need of a serious overall-very much fits into the rust belt feel of the region. Room was also a little louder than I was used to for a Hampton inn. Lobby area. Looked like it was... More

Lots of noisy construction workers (blaring heavy metal right until 11PM), towel cubes full of dust, smelly rooms with poor a/c units. Only Hilton product in area for HHonors members though... Close to hwy, which is convenient too.

This hotel is not in a fancy location, but it is updated, clean, quiet, and safe. Reasonable price, good complimentary breakfast, good shower, friendly staff members. Gas stations and restaurants within driving distance. Close to I-76 and close to other hotels.

Outstanding hotel and a value right outside of Akron O. Rooms, Hallways and public areas are clean and welcoming. Staff is extremely helpful. This is my second stay and it definately took the edge off of being on the road. Front Desk and Breakfast Staff are great. While this is not the Waldorf Astoria, I can tell you that the... More

Everything was very nice. Hotel personnel were very pleasant and professional. We were in town for a family wedding. We were able to check in early. Location was convenient to travel route church and reception.

The hotel was extremely clean! The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful! I like staying at Hampton Inns because of the quality of service. The breakfast selection was better than most hotels. Great job Hampton Inn! We will definitely be back if we are in the area!
