It’s a great location. Close to the campus, restaurants, bars etc. the property is starting to need some maintenance—small things like caulking, replacement of bedding, etc. the walls are VERY thin. You can hear a lot of noise from other rooms and hallways. Overall it’s a great hotel. I hope that they address the small issues before they become big issues.

Dear Robin, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate the comments. As I write this, we are replacing the blankets and pillows in our rooms. We have upgraded our pillows and blankets. Hopefully our guests will notice. Please stop by the next time you are in the area.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for staying with us. You happened to be staying at the hotel during Wizarding Weekend at Kent. McKae was the front desk agent that you encountered. He went all out for the fest. We are glad you appreciated it. Hope to see you again.
