The room was more than I expected, more the $100 plus value, with modern lobby. The staff was pleasant albeit a tad preoccupied elsewhere when I was checking in, and out. My only complaint, well three actually: the shower walls still had shampoo suds in the upper corner (one that got by housekeeping), the cold water smelled like sulpher -...

Over many years we used to stay here occasionally during family visits to Akron when it was still a Comfort Inn (but we mostly stayed at the Quality Inn down the road). Since it was turned into an Econo Lodge earlier this year, the price has been reduced, the service improved, and the rooms have been upgraded / renovated. Plus,...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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.
