5 day stay

Stayed 5 nights. Lucky for me I didn't need to spend time there other than showering and sleeping. Budget friendly for sure. You get what you pay for.

Nice room decent price

This hotel motel was one of the better ones I have stayed at over my travels. The only complaint I have is that the sink did not drain at all. I ended up leaving a horrible mess in the sink just before we left and feel awful for not being able to clean it up for the housekeeping staff.

Fire alarm is loud. Shame we had to wait for the fire company to silence the alarm.

Sorry for your inconvenience, But it is against the law for any employees or manager to touch the alarm system. only fire department can touch it.

Days Inn stay in Kent, OH

Pros: Staff was very kind. And went out of their way to help look for a blue tooth ear piece when we initially thought we had lost it.
Cons: New firm mattresses. New carpet. Professionally clean out the venting system in the AC unit. Upgrade TV to a high-definition model.
Location: Felt like a generally safe location in the sleepy town of Kent, Ohio. Nothing really to do around us. Not too many shops or restaurants.
The first room we were given smelled musty and when the AC was turned on the smell of stale cigarette smoke filled the room. Thus, I asked for a new room. The staff was very kind and did place us in another room. The cigarette smoke was not in the AC unit in the new room, which was better. However, the room still had a musty smell to it. Especially when we left for a few hours only to return. The carpets need to be replaced or cleaned at the least. The mattresses on both beds were very soft and far too mushy. Believe me, I tried to sleep in both beds on varying nights of our stay and was very uncomfortable.

Really nice place- BEST BED comfort ever!

Pros: Decor, comfort, convenience, price, offer of breakfast
Cons: breakfast
Location: convenient to interstate travel. I've stopped here twice in as many weeks.
The rooms are nicely re-done and the bed is actually the most comfortable I've ever slept on. I plan to ask what mattress they use so i can buy one for myself. The staff was friendly and helpful, though i wish the included breakfast had more. Perhaps Waffles or boiled eggs. I really liked the decor in our room!

Decent price for decent quality.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, nice staff, good location, micowave in room, cable tv, clean!
Cons: slightly noisy, no iron/ironing board in room
When I travel, all I really look for in a place to stay is the location and the cleanliness. The Days Inn Kent is really conveniently located next to I-76 and just 10 minutes down the road from Kent State University, so you're not far from wherever you need to be. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The only two negative points I can think of are that the room did not have an iron and ironing board which would have thrown off my morning routine a little had it not been for the fact that I had a sweater to throw on over my wrinkled shirt (the front desk may have those things, but I didn't ask), and the walls are somewhat thin so you can REALLY hear the water running through the pipes in the wall if the person in the room next to you is running their sink or shower. I was trying to watch a movie before going to bed and the person in the room next to me was apparently taking a shower...the sound was so loud that I had to pause the movie and wait for them to be done before I could resume watching since I couldn't hear anything in my room besides their water running. But, aside from that, pretty decent place for a pretty decent price. If for some reason you ever find yourself in Kent needing a place to stay, the Days Inn is a good choice.

The staff was very friendly

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Had no problems. We stayed two nights and were very comfortable. Close to highway. We were not bothered by noise and we felt safe. We would definitely stay here again.

Convenient to Kent State U.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I found this to be a good quality hotel for an affordable price. It was close to the university, quiet and clean. The beds were comfortable and I had no problem sleeping through the night, which I often do at hotels.
