Reviewed May 16, 2008

I did read all the reviews and noticed that most were over a year old. My thought was perhaps they have taken notice and cleaned up the hotel a bit, and I would be surprised by make-over.
This hotel is in a great location, with shopping and restaurants nearby. The price is very good and has high speed internet that worked very well. The gym only has a treadmill, stair mach and bike. I could not get the treadmill to work. For a good exercise you could just run up and down the entrance of the building. If you are staying there in the winter and there is snow you may not make it up the driveway.
The room has new wallpaper (not the bathroom) everything worked well but the room just needs a better cleaning in corners, mirrors, floors and such. It appeared to just be a surface clean. No bugs found. I have stayed in the other hotels in this area such as Q-Inn and the Red Roof. I will probably return to one of them on my next visit.

My husband said if we were staying in the area more than 1 night, we would have had to checkout and go somewhere else! We also found the room to be dirty, musty. Breakfast area is poorly arranged with very limited seating -- waited 20 minutes in line to make our waffle due to college sports team at breakfast at the same time. I contacted the corporate office of Choice Hotels group, who turned my complaint back over to the property -- hard to believe that they sent back a letter saying all my concerns had been taken care of!

Room was very musty on arrival. Bed did not look changed but decided to stay after 9 hour drive. Woke up to go to bathroom and turned on light to find roaches crawling in sink. Cobwebs were hanging behind the door of room. Needless to say I sat up all night with lights on. Would never stay here again.

I have relatives in Akron and always stay here. This visit was awful. We checked out for 1 day to go to Southern Ohio and when we checked back in, the room had not been cleaned (they gave us the same room). Coffee grounds and coffee still in coffee pot from the previous day and there was still orange juice in the reefer from our continental breakfast. Hairs all over the bathroom. Even though they were our hairs, still yucky!!!! Housekeeping was nonexistent. The lady at the front desk was very helpful though.

We were in Akron for our son's athletic event. This was one of the host hotels offered. It was fine for this purpose, but nothing more. Wallpaper was peeling, several places in the room. Bathroom was basically clean but had rust spots and the plumbing made a loud noice sometimes after flushing the toilet. The continental breakfast was very basic. We chose to eat out the 2nd morning. Staff was courteous. This place is fine for a casual stay-over, not anything more than that tho.
