This motel is very basic. Low cost (50 dollars) gets you a bed, a tiny bathroom, a slow wifi connection, and an 80's carpet. The room was actually very clean, and the bed was huge and comfortable. Pets are allowed, as I did see a few. Pillows are awful, bring your own. VERY loud street noise, bring ear plugs. In-room... More

First room the lock wouldn't work the front desk said oh we'll have to manually let you in every... More

In staying at the Econo Lodge Kent, l must say that the Staff was very Professional yet, Neighborly. I even was allowed a Small Pet. My stay was really pleasant and l have already booked a reservation for January 2015 based on the previous service. I would definitely recommend it to Family and Friends.

Absolutely the worst hotel we have ever had the displeasure of staying at. DO NOT STAY HERE unless you enjoy disgusting long black hairs left on your shower walls, toilets that do not stop running all night, showers that do not drain, a non-smoking room that reeks of musty smoke, a pathetic breakfast (didn't even offer regular coffee) or having...

I booked this hotel through Orbitz and paid a fairly hefty price for it. The hotel was fairly easy to find as it is located right off the highway but there were a lot of other hotels we could have chosen and wished we had rather than booking online. The parking lot was very small and a car had backed... More

I get away for a weekend once a year. I was excited when I found this hotel. It had smoking rooms with hot tubs in it and a heated pool. PFFTT...The "hot tub" was a small bath tub with WEAK jets. If you turn the water too hot it sets off the fire alarm. Not sure if that's what happened... More

First is NOT the hotel that is pictured! There is NO awning on it.We had a emergency that held us up from checking in until late, late, late into the night. We had reserved the room a couple days before. The company we reserved through (choicehotels.com) sent them the wrong information so we did not get the double room we... More

I don't know what hotel some of these people providing reviews were staying at??? Of course this isn't the Ritz Carlton but it is a great place to stay and is surprisingly nice. Front desk staff was nice, breakfast was simple and the pool was great. The room was clean, simple, and believe me we have stayed at some real... More

Was spending a couple of days visiting the Kent State area and didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a room. Have to admit that I was very concerned when I drove in as the outside of the building did not look too good. However, the interior was a pleasant surprise. The check-in was easy and the... More
