Stayed here in January with my son for a visit to KSU. Great location in downtown/Acorn Alley area near most restaurants and shops. Parking is in a city parking deck right next door for $10/day. The continental breakfast was beyond expectations. The young ladies at the front desk (both KSU students) were very friendly and helpful. There are other less expensive hotel choices in Kent but they are out near the Interstate and not in walking distance. With this hotel you get what you pay for. You could walk to the KSU campus but that is a little further. Our twin queen bed room was large, clean and comfortable. My son will be attending KSU in the Fall so we will be back, I am sure. I recommend.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed here for a week during my wife’s school reunion activities and were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. So much so that we were quite sad to leave after our week there. -the location is excellent with all you need within walking distance. Good coffee shop, excellent lunch and diner places -parking arrangements are really excellent (and safe) in a multi story across the street. It costs a flat $10/day and allows you unlimited entry and exit during this time -loading and unloading the car was easy with temporary parking outside the hotel and some of the best luggage carts I’ve used -breakfast is included in the hotel rate and is much more than the standard fare, with a good selection of hot and cold dishes available -hotel staff were excellent throughout particularly the front desk who helped us with many suggestions for the area -finally if you’re on the road for a longer period, there is an excellent washer/dryer on the second floor which we used a couple of times

I have never had a complimentary breakfast that was better! The number of choices, the cleanliness of the buffet area and service from Staff was above any other I have had. Thomas at the front desk was a pleasure to work with as well.

Not the normal “fun” visit but the hotel and staff were fantastic. VERY difficult circumstances for everyone in Kent but the hotel staff were amazing. They were all painfully aware of the impacts of the COVID-19 issue yet they kept the guest first. Really amazing hotel and I always recommend it.
