Nice place to stay with an excellent staff. Great value for the price of the room. Located right next to a Walmart and plenty of restaurant options around the hotel. Its a little tricky to find as it sets in back behind a strip mall and off to the side of Walmart.

We were on a quick weekend trip to celebrate an anniversary of old friends in Akron. This motel was very comfortable and convenient to where we were going. The staff was friendly and the room was very clean. I would have given this motel a 5 but it dose need to renovate the bathroom, the tub was old and needs... More

I just reviewed four places that we stayed during a two week road trip. I gave each of them rave reviews except for this place. Where do we start? I was expecting this place to be decent, because apparently it was just recently a Comfort Inn. We booked two rooms here. Instead we stayed at a place that was worse... More

We have stayed here two consecutive nights the last four years. This year it changed from Comfort Inn to Econo Lodge. The gentleman on the phone who took my reservation was very efficient and helpful. Tues and Wed, June 28-29, we were very pleased with a quick check-in and the room. The steep driveway entrance has two lighted (green) artificial... More

Traveling through the area this was exactly what we wanted. Clean and comfortable room with a warm shower in the morning. Due to the number of smoking rooms the hallways do smell of smoke but our room and sheets did not at all. The breakfast was sparse but we woke late so it probably had more earlier. Check in and...

This little Econo Lodge is right beside a Wal-Mart Super Center, so if you need anything it's within walking distance. The rooms were clean, we were on the second floor which was all non smoking rooms. Water was HOT for showers :) Breakfast was just OK. Light N Fit yogurt, fast food egg rounds and sausage, Belgium waffles, syrup, bagels,... More

Not much parking, needed space for a pickup/trailer which was accommodated in the Walmart lot next door. Breakfast is a PLUS!!! Found the hotel via TripAdvisor and booked online via booking.com. Best thing was no-hassle checkin.

The size of the King Suite was very nice. It was very big at a reasonable price. It had a King Size Bed, a flat screen TV, a microwave, a table, two chairs, and a pull-out couch. However, the hot tub wasn't working.

This hotel charged only $4 more than the Red Roof down the road, and I got a lot more bang for my buck with a free hot breakfast, workout room, and whirlpool! Nice room, recent remodeling, and quiet guests made for a pleasant stay. I will stay here again when I come to Akron for business.

This was a nice motel. Rooms were nice. The breakfast had flavored make your own waffles. Very close to restaurants and right next to a Walmart. The only complaint I would have is the jets in the jacuzzu don't work very good at all. I would stay there again.
