We were visiting Oberlin College for family weekend to see our son, who is a freshman. My husband and I were traveling with our daughters, who are 14, 12 and 9. I chose this hotel based on proximity to Oberlin, indoor pool and reviews on Tripadvisor. We stayed in a 1 Bedroom Suite and were not disappointed in the spacious room.
Pro's: The front desk staff is very helpful in every way; the breakfast room is spacious, the hostess is friendly and extremely accommodating, the menu changes each morning and there is plenty to choose from including eggs, waffles, oatmeal and fresh fruit; there is ample parking; easy route to get to Oberlin College, fresh cookies and coffee offered in the lobby all day long; the beds and pillows are very comfortable; the suite was very spacious and the "kitchen area" was great; great black out drapes even on a completely sunny morning.
Cons: The hot tub in the pool area was at best warm, the towels at the pool as well as in the rooms are more like hand towels - needed at least 2 or 3 to properly dry off - this made us run out of towels VERY quickly; we are smoking averse and were in a non-smoking room, but the rooms adjacent to us were "smoking rooms" and therefore we could smell it in our hallway and room, which was unsettling.
Given that most of the accommodations in this area are bare bones, we will certainly stay here again during our son's college stay. I do think had we complained about the smoke smell or the towels, the staff would have tried to help us out. If you are traveling to this area for business or to visit family, I would recommend this as a place to comfortably stay.
