We nicknamed this hotel ‘Dis’Comfort Inn. Filthy stained carpet. Stained bed linens. AC was in room versions seemingly recirculating dirty blasts of cold air. Unable to open windows to get fresh air. Pillows and bed uncomfortable. Water pressure low. Hard pass on ever staying here again.

Close to Kent State University

Pros: Spacious room, but restroom door hits your knees when you are "on the throne" and someone from your family enters to use sink.
Cons: Bell announcing the arrival of the elevator should be DISABLED! It really disturbed our sleep ALL NIGHT LONG!
Location: Close proximity to KSU campus and the highway.
We were staying overnight prior to the Destination Kent State event for incoming freshman students and their families. Beds were a little soft, but the room was spacious with high ceilings. We arrived too late and left too early to take advantage of the pool or other amenities. We were given a room across the hall from the elevator and since we arrived late at night, all we wanted to do was shower and get some sleep before our event. The bell on the elevator announcing its arrival disturbed our sleep ALL NIGHT LONG and should be DISABLED to give guests the chance to rest!! When we discovered that we had forgotten our toothpaste, we checked multiple times at the front desk to get a complimentary tube, but no one was "manning" the front desk--only a sign saying that they were assisting another guest and would return shortly. After multiple attempts, we gave up and did without as we had to get to campus on time. The complimentary hot breakfast offered a nice variety of foods and was acceptable.

Very nice and clean...just a bit pricey.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Nice hotel, very clean. Parking is abit tight but close. Didn't try out pool but everyone looked to be enjoying it. Breakfast ended at 9 am one morning so be careful! We missed it and needed it for timesaving as we were there for baseball tournaments. Have stayed twice this year and would stay again.

Hotel was a disappointment.

The room was average especially when you consider the price paid for the room. The staff was not very helpful or friendly when I had an issue with my stay. Would not stay here again.
