This hotel is located just off the interstate. There is a large Walmart right next to it and a number of surrounding restaurants in walking distance. The room was adequate and clean. The pillows were fairly flat but it was fine for one night. All the rooms open to the outside. The entire property was labeled as smoke free but...

Price was great and the room was clean and comfortable. Our expectations for budget stays are always just the basics, and this met what we were looking for. Nice staff, too. I will say it's the smallest room I ever stayed in, but we were only here for one night to sleep so it wasn't a problem.

Very convenient, economical two night stay. Very spacious and clean. Enjoyed the greeting from front desk and loved being beside a Walmart. Great comfortable king size bed. Very welcoming. The only draw back was the noise from other guests. We heard conversations from the family next to us and some couple arguing in the middle of the night. The benefits...

My family and I had a late flight and need a nice place to lay over until the morning. The place was clean, and nice looking inside. Loved the flooring. Only thing I felt it needed was a coffee machine in the room. But, never fear! There was coffee provided at the front desk. Coffee to Go!!!

Tess was, the sweetest young lady. Very kind to us. We had to live here for two weeks, till our home, was ready. The rooms are very clean and well cared for. They do not charge extra for animals as we had two, with us. Thank you, Tess at Akron South for making our stay more like home.

This hotel is OK. The rooms are somewhat small and it seems like there should be a fridge in every room. I'm pretty sure my girlfriend and I were the only ones on the whole property not smoking weed. The smell is pervasive. The shower is somewhat annoying in that you only have two choices on water temp: ice pellets...
