Nice Hotel
Reviewed 2 days ago

This is a very nice hotel close to everything in Kent. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only downfall of this place was the breakfast (which, to be fair, was free). The selection was okay, however, the baked goods were dry and tasted old and like freezer burn. My husband’s first juice glass had lipstick on the rim and the plate I took from the stack had dried on food all over it. So not super appetizing. Everything else about the place was very good. I would stay here again.

Last time staying here

Have been here less than 24 hours & are counting down the remaining hours while listening to the awful room A/C unit vibrating. Every time I walk by the dresser, I push the drawers shut only to have them slide back open on their own within a couple minutes. Had to unplug the lamp beside the chair in order to plug in my phone charger as there were no available plugs near the bed. Can hear every toilet in the adjoining rooms...absolutely no soundproofing. I can’t be in the same hotel as all the people that gave this place four or five stars.

great as always

The hotel is always clean and staff is very friendly, beds are comfy and spacious. Our experience with the restaurant was not good this trip but, is normally very good. Waitress messed up my order and really didn't seem to care. Not the norm for this hotel! Don't let this stop you from staying here could've been just a bad day for her.

Beautiful Place

Our visit to Kent OH was fabulous. Kent State University Hotel & Conference Center was wonderful. Very modern and clean. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the staff was very friendly. The town itself is so cool! I'd move there in a heartbeat :)
