The front desk staff were great and helpful suggesting great places to eat. Cudos to them. The room was clean and everything in great working order. The rooms were slightly noisy since you could hear the people above you walking.

Everything was really nice and clean. The walls and floors seemed thin, but wasn't really a problem. The location was very good. The rate was pretty expensive, but I think that it was well worth it. Would definitely consider coming back.

Dear cdlorangecrest, We are so glad that you were "pleasantly surprised" about the hotel. Our staff works hard to ensure our guests have a great stay. Glad you experienced the second floor terrace. The terrace is our hidden oasis. We talk it up at check in, but our guests sometimes don't have the time to sit in the early morning or evening to relax. Your group was a great bunch to talk with. Thank you for staying with us. Hope to see you well before your 90th reunion.

this is my 4th stay at KSU Hotel and Conference Center--it's always been a great place to stay. Clean! Very friendly, efficient and pleasant staff. And it's right in the middle of everything. And parking is really easy even if it costs a little. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Good place to stay visiting Kent State University, friendly management, all new and rather good quality, big new garage not far away and a few nice restaurants on the side. Could be recommended for a short business trip, or University visit.

We have quite a few guests that visit us from Germany. Thank you for choosing the Kent State Hotel. Our hotel is convenient due to the fact that everything you need is within walking distance, great restaurants, unique retail shops, and the University itself. I have a Spring '23 trip to Muncheburg, Germany on my list so maybe we will meet again. But, we hope to see you sooner.

Excellent as always…staff service and room all great. This is the only place o stay when I travel to Kent to see my son. Everything is always neat and clean and the area is close to everything. We call walk less than 2 minutes for delicious food or dine right at the hotel.
