Easy access from freeway. Easy to get to Campus and downtown. Very clean and extremely friendly staff. A little pricey. Loud family of kids above us constant running. I am sure this is not a usual problem though. Easy to use Internet with good connection,

Holds were placed on my credit card for 5 nights even though I was only staying 1 night. I did not realize this until I returned home the next day and checked my credit card account online. I called the hotel and asked them to release the extra 4 nights of holds on my credit card and Stephanie refused. Not... More

I don't normally visit a Hampton Inn, but this was the host hotel for a football game I was attending. There wasn't anything really wrong here, just the room was not as eye-catching as others I've stayed in. It was dark and dreary, especially with that hulking dark wardrobe in the corner. The room was clean, the bed was comfy... More

I enjoyed my one night stay here while in the Kent area. I was on a road trip and planned to visit the historical attractions at Kent State U. the next morning and this hotel was close by. The room was clean and comfortable despite renovations going on elsewhere in the hotel at the time. The pool was nice and... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Hampton many times and have always had a good stay. This time was far from the norm. After a very long drive we where both tired, we where looking forward to a relaxing evening in the pool. When we arrived at the hotel we walked into a youth birthday party in the... More

This is my second time staying at this particular Hampton. Front desk employee was extremely friendly and welcoming! I was traveling with my 5 month old grandson. I called ahead to see if at least one of our rooms could be ready for an early check in. I was so pleasantly surprised that BOTH of our rooms were ready and... More

I have stayed at this location at least 10 separate times. The rooms have always been very clean, and all linens perfect. Very comfortable beds, and pillows. Typically stay on the first floor each time, and it has always been very quite.

Clean ample rooms, fresh smelling, NO PETS allowed. Great breakfast buffett, friendly staff and not just the front desk personnel, excellent costumer service, Manager on duty was especially helpful when we needed a room for the trip back home and couldnot see where it was on a tiny phone screen

Our room was given to another guest so we were put into a subpar room on the ground level. This Hampton Inn is way below the standard Hampton Inn. Not clean and seems like a converted Super 8! Would not stay here again!

Very easy access from the highway. The lobby was clean, staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was very newly remodeled an clean. We would defiantly recommend this Hampton. Plus, the points and money option was a great way to keep the cost down.
