Really liked the location being so close to Kent State University and the downtown area. Brought a potential new freshman for fall 2022 to tour the campus. The hotel had a nice home feel to the place.

Best place to stay in Kent. While the hotel isn’t a design wonder, it’s a really solid place. Was clean, quiet snd a delight to stay in. Staff was so nice and helpful always. The breakfast while Nothing special is a nice touch. I never saw the restaurant open, but it seems like every place in Ohio when I was there was closed or suffered from staffing issues. Great location and where you must stay when at kent!

very Pleased with stay. Stayed multiple times so far and nothing below par each stay. Individual and family stay has been reserved. Individually and family stays have been pleasing and meet expectations.
