“Good Value enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

For a one night stay this super 8 was conveniently located of the highway, good parking especially if you are towing a trailer, camper or boat...freindly staff, coffee in the room was welcome, and the continentakl breakfast was much appreciated.
Price was lower than other hotel/motels in area, so if you need to sleep for the night and get going the next day..this place is perfect.

I stayed for four nights and back home several days later I had lots of itchy bedbug bites on legs and arms. Couldnt feel the bites when they happened but that's common my doctor says. This motel had bedbugs reported last August, and i should have avoided the place. May have to fumigate my house if I brought the bugs back. .

Hotel is a bit tired, but then you get what you pay for, and this is a Super 8, not the Bellagio!
Was clean and comfortable, and I didnt see any bed bugs or evidence of them.

Nice friendly guy on the reception desk in the evening, and the breakfast in the morning was good too.
Great location, just down the road from banks/restaurants and interstate.
Would stay again.

First floor bugs in the bed!! Don't know if they were bed bugs but I was bitten!! The first floor smells like a basement. The box spring and mattress had a covering on them. That's a sign of bugs. Don't stay there.

My husband thought it would be a good idea to stay here since we were leaving to go home at 7am. I hate germs and this was the WORST place for me to stay! The bathroom was disgusting with mold around the tub, the room smelled like mildew and I didn't sleep all night from being uncomfortable and the smell! I had my shirt over my nose the entire time to keep from barfing!! They should turn their light off, remodel and use some plug ins! I will NEVER stay here again! I will gladly spend $100 to stay at the Comfort Inn and Suites across the street for a few hours or sleep in my car!

After reading the reviews, I thought this would be a decent hotel. So wrong, the room I had on the 2nd floor had bed bugs. Small insects had bitten me and when I inspected closer you could see little insects against the white sheets. When I sat on the other double bed looking for another hotel I noticed red insects crawling on the comforter. I switched rooms that night to a king bed from 2 double beds and it seemed a little better. I mentioned to the hotel clerk that there were bugs in the room and he mentioned "we don't usually get them". The problem I had in the new room, the phone did not work and it took over an hour and the problem was still not resolved. No management staff was available. At that point I checked out and went to Days Inn which was better.

The continental breakfast is not desirable and it didn't look fresh. They had Eggo waffles, cereal and powered juice (the juice was the only item I had and could not even stomach it.)

Note: I would have switched hotels that night but after a long drive of 7 plus hours and it was 1am when I noticed these problems. It was easier to switch rooms at the time than hotels...next time I would just switch hotels.

I take workshops at Kent State at least twice a year, and I always stay here. It isn't fancy, but it is clean, has free internet, free coffee and a minimalist breakfast, and it is convenient to both Kent and the Interstate. Each room has a refrigerator and a microwave. This isn't luxury, but compared to the other choices nearby- it is the best for the money. I usually spend 40 or 50 dollars a night. Since I just need a place to sleep and shower. This works great. Hampton Inn is lovely with lots of amenities and so is Holiday Inn Express, but they both cost double what this costs. I am going in two weeks, and here is where I'll stay.
