“Comfort and Service were excellent - best of the best Comfort Inns”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

Arrived late afternoon - no problem. Scheduled 2 days but had to extend to 3 days - no problem. Room service was very efficent and professional. Needed extra towels 1 day - no problem. Breakfast choices were all fresh and enjoyable. Mattress was comfortable and the water attraction was fun. Atruly enjoyable stay. Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: hotel sits back from the road and was very quiet.

Here's the good: clean, great water park for kids, free breakfast, microwave and refrigerator
in room, right off the highway, within 5 minutes of Kent State, plenty of restaurants nearby, free wireless internet, and the price. The negative, rooms are far from soundproof, heating/cooling unit noisy. Overall I would stay here if I was back in town and wasn't looking for frills. Price was the reason why I booked this hotel. I got exactly what I expected from this chain of hotel, maybe even a little more. Check AAA rates to save even more.

Immediately upon arriving in our room, we realized that there was a group of very ill behaved people above our room as well as next door. We contacted the front desk and requested a room change. We were assured that they would send someone to the room and handle the noisy groups and to call back in 20 minutes if things were not better. When we called back 30 minutes later, we found that no one was sent upstairs yet. To make a long story short, they visited the room above us twice and apparently called the police on the room next to us. All tolled, from 7pm to 11:30pm, we called the front desk at least 6 times reporting noise violations, requesting to be moved, and requesting our money back. Each time we were assured the problem would be resolved. In the morning, after being awakened by people jumping off the furniture again, my wife spoke to the manager on duty, Jennifer Collins. She was very unreceptive to our concerns. We will be spending the remainder of our stay elswhere.

We booked this hotel for 3 nights even though it was a little out of the way for us. Our grandchildren stayed with us, and the waterpark was a lifesaver!! It's not open for day passes as other larger waterparks, so crowding wasn't an issue. The little ones went on the frog waterslide over and over, as well as playing under the other water features. The lazy river wasn't used much - no tubes to use and no real streaming motion. There is one large waterslide. The hot tub was just the right temp. The continental breakfast the first morning included scrambled eggs and sausages, but the other two mornings just biscuits and gravy (and hard boiled eggs). The room was clean and the front desk helpful.

I went to KSU and when my parents came to visit, they would always stay at either the Hampton Inn or the Holiday Inn Express, but if this hotel had been open, this would have been the place.

I stayed with a couple of colleagues for an event on Saturday night, and we were very impressed with the hotel. We got a King suite that had a comfy king bed, and a full size pull out sofa bed, plenty of room for the three of us. There was a flat screen TV, and I would suggest to be on the back of the hotel as it might be quieter than on street side. The room was very nice and the price was VERY affordable! Great value with the free breakfast as well, which we didnt have, but nice to know it was there.

The pool area is amazing, slides, hot tub and is a warm 75 degrees year round and is a great comparison with the snow outside the window!!

The only gripe that I have is that the soundproofing in the hotel is mediocre at best. When you walk down the hall you can hear your own footsteps loudly and when anyone above or next to you walks or speaks loudly, they can totally HEAR you. A little odd that they didn't think about this but everything else is great.

My husband and I and a friend enjoyed our three day stay at this hotel. Rooms are large and well-appointed with comfortable beds and linens and flat screen wall-mounted TV's and a DVD player. Hotel is wired and wireless for internet. Nice sized desk, room is well lit, bathroom is a good size, large safe in closet etc. Breakfast area is large and well-maintained nice variety of food including waffles and scrambled eggs in addition to cereals, juices, fruit, pastries etc. Lobby is spacious, business center is located off the lobby. Didn't use the indoor pool but it's very large and attractive as is the seating area around the pool. Hotel is located close to Kent State University and the downtown section of Kent -- accessible to everything. Hotel is set back from the road that runs in front of the property so there is no traffic noise. Everyone was friendly -- desk clerks, maids, as well as the lady who maintained the breakfast area. Any requests were handled immediately -- ex. we needed a second luggage rack in our room -- desk clerk got one for us immediately -- very efficiently run hotel. We'd stay here again.
