Pros: - Walkable to Kent State & close to restaurants - Rooms clean & quiet - Across the street from police station - Has indoor pool & hot tub - Free parking vouchers for garage - Bar was closed during Covid-19 but it looked cute - Free breakfast not an option due to Covid-19 but they had a small section out each morning with pre-packaged grab & go items. Cons: - Terrace could be pretty but no one took the time to clean it while we were there. Lights broken, cushions & tables VERY dirty. We watched as one worker (while on her phone) took 40 minutes (no lie) to water a few plants & change a trash can which by the way was so over-full & probably not changed in at least a week.

Dear Kristi0723, Unfortunately, we did drop the ball with our terrace on Saturday night/Sunday morning. We should have had someone taking care of this early Sunday morning. This issue has been addressed with our staff so it is not overlooked again. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We are happy that you found the other hotel amenities up to par, and most importantly, your room clean and quiet. We hope to see you again in the near future.
