I stayed for three nights. The staff was friendly. The room was descent. I really liked the pillows and comforter. The bed was comfortable. The towels had a weird smell like they weren't washed with soap and the toilet paper was cheap.

Pleasant and attentive staff. Very clean. Nice breakfast, though would prefer more fruit. Easy off and on interstate. Quiet room, comfortable bed for a good night's sleep. Definitely recommend to anyone.

We stayed here to attend a concert nearby on 12/3/16. We were pleasantly surprised with how nice this hotel is. Nice rooms, comfy beds and pillows. The breakfast was good, and the staff was very friendly and professional. The walls do seem to be a little thin, as we could hear people coming in late at night. We could also...

Stayed here on my way to another town. Close to the interstate and noise was apparent. Rooms are a bit dated but still clean. Service was good - typical of Hampton Inns. Few restaurant choices near here that are decent. Overall, just 'ok'.

Very nice room and bathroom, comfortable bed, and welcoming service. Everything looked very clean. Complimentary breakfast was fine. The only complaint is that walls are very thin. Would be back with no doubts.

Beautiful area of the country. Hotel appearance in all aspects above par. The hotel met expectations in every category. I spent a considerable amount of time in my room for my one night stay and felt very comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Akron Hampton.

Very nice hotel. I had no complaints. Nice rooms, staff and common areas. We have stayed there in the past while visiting our daughter at Kent State. We have never had any problems. Good location for getting on and off major highway. No security worries. Close to gas and food as direct line to school.

Always have a great experience staying here. Clean facility. The rooms are kept nice and clean. I believe they just refurbished them several years ago. Continental breakfast not the best but if you can't find something to eat that's on you. Staff always friendly and helpful.

Great location for folks visiting Kent State University. Close to campus, easy to find and newly renovated. The hotel is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced. Friendly staff and the usual Hampton amenities.

10 minutes from Kent State campus and beautiful downtown Kent. Kent has multiple places to eat in their downtown. The Hampton staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good. Rooms were clean and well kept. Next Ball State soccer match vs. Kent, we will be there.

“When you have a clean, smoke-free hotel, you should not have to worry about getting a particular room in order to have a "good room". As far as I'm concerned, all rooms are good.”
