The pool was closed, there was no breakfast. Staff was rude when questioned about the accommodations that were listed yet not available. The rooms were less than satisfactory… hard beds. Peeling and cracked paint.

The room was clean and worked out great as I was only in town for the evening. I was disappointed with the shower the next morning as it was only Luke warm and with not much pressure. Overall good for the price.

I would stay again

Pros: convenient to Kent University where I was visiting my son
Cons: I couldn't figure out how to take a bath. There was no way to plug up the drain, which was disappointinting
Location: excellent.
The front desk person Ashley is amazing. I was having trouble setting up my wifi, so brought my computer to the front desk, and she set me up in between handling the customers and other staff that approached her with grace and efficiency.

Econo Lodge - Kent, OH

Pros: cheap
Cons: Noisy
The common areas need LOTS of work; dirty door handles, carpeting, peeling paint. At first glance the room looked GREAT, but on closer inspection it was just okay. Yes, it has been newly remodeled, but the plaster around the air conditioning unit was cracked and the paint was peeling; there was black crud in the shower. Will not stay here again.

I was impressed

This is the only hotel in the area with a refridge and microwave. The room was clean. The bathroom is a little old, but clean. If highway noise bothers you, stay in the back of the hotel. The breakfast was nice and fresh with muffins, danishes, bananas, waffles.
