This is a very nice, business-like, conveniently located hotel a few steps away from campus, right snack in the middle of downtown Kent. The rooms are big, and the breakfast buffet is good. Great service. Parking nearby. The drawbacks: lousy soundproofing. Windows don't open; and, there isn't any fan in the bathrooms. As a result, there is very little a... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. A lot to enjoy not only at the hotel but the entire area. Easy walking to many restaurants, bars shops ect.....we did not get a chance to see as much as we wanted. Already planning another weekend here before the end of the year. Clean and very comfortable!

The front staff greeted me joyfully after having directed me via phone to their parking garage. Teddy is an exceptional staff member. After I had unpacked everything in my lovely room, I saw that there was only a shower and I prefer tub baths. I asked if they had rooms with a tub and Teddy arranged for me to move... More

We stayed here a couple of nights while in town for a function at Kent State. The hotel is modern and well kept. My room was extremely spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. The facility has a nice bar/restaurant area and complimentary continental-style breakfast. Location couldn't be better - adjacent to campus and near several nice restaurants. Service was very good...

I wish I had known there was a handicapped bathroom when I placed my reservation online. Since we could not arrive until approximately 8:00 PM and then had to leave by 11;00 am the next day we felt that some extra time could have been taken into consideration since I have a TPN and needed a shot. We did not... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay with this hotel. All service people were so very pleasant and helpful. The atmosphere was easy going and the ambiance most comfortable.

Traveling a lot for family and business, was very pleasantly surprised at the high quality and location of this facility. Very comfy beds with large rooms and bathroom Unfortunately the breakfast was above Luke warm oatmeal, hard boiled eggs and a toaster I think I had in college to service 40 people. Upgrade this aspect and you get 5/5
