Recent guest reviews

Overall it was a very nice place to stay, I have to suggestions one for breakfast to be longer than 9 o'clock at least until 10. And that housekeeping kind of comes the same time each day.

Hotel was in convenient location. Staff friendly. Breakfast bar excellent. Missed not having a pool.

It's rated as a 2 star, much lower in my opinion. *** Amenities: The lights between the 2 beds did not work, tried a bulb from a working lamp, no go. All electrical receptacles were worn out, giving a loose connection. The plug for my cell phone charger kept falling out of the various receptacles. Our room had some obvious electrical problems. Breakfast included eggs that appeared to be small yellow pancakes. I don't know if they were from a carton & fried on site or if they came frozen & were then heated in a microwave. In any event, they obviously were not satisfactory (very high vacuum). *** Location: On the north side of the Walmart parking lot. There is a very steep incline that you must get up to enter the hotel parking lot. It must be a real treat during the winter, it's not easy in the summer. *** Room Cleanliness is average. *** Room Comfort: The wife & I had 2 beds to choose from and ended up trying both. Neither bed was satisfactory, we both ended up with back aches in the morning.. *** Staff: The staff was polite, however, at the end of our stay, the person at the front desk could not figure out how to check us out. Apparently, the prepaid online reservation was causing problems or confusion for the staff. *** Value: For the remainder of our trip, the wife & I stayed in very nice 3 star hotels, some of the 2 stars are obviously over rated. We do not recommend this hotel. Pay the extra money for a much better experience. ***

decent sleep n shower, close to CAK airport, clean, comfortable bedding

I've stayed here five times in the past few years when I've had to make business trips to Barberton. There are lots of options in this area, but the Comfort Inn has a homey feel that has kept me coming back. Nothing fancy, but this place has everything I need while on a business trip: clean rooms, Internet access, coffee and good breakfast bar, and great location for getting to the Interstate. The staff is wonderfully welcoming and helpful.

The non-smoking rooms on the 2nd floor are much nicer than the smoking rooms on the third.

Noisy at late night

The hotel was in need of remodeling. The key cards for the room doors did not work very well. We will be staying at a different hotel on our next trip to Akron.

Overall it was ok, but I wasnt impressed with the staff there, especially the front desk. She was quite unprofessional. I also found a nice looking roach in the morning. That was great to wake up to! Ok for a one night stay, but could do better.

The overall stay was ok, the bed was comfty. But the room was not well kept. The TV kept going out, the sitting chair was TAPED together, the bathroom door did not shut or lock, and the coffee maker was missing the top and there was a lot of dust, so we didnt use it. I think we will choose another hotel if we go back to Ohio again.

I like the way I was greated when I walked in and the employees where very nice.

My wife and I had a pleasant stay with king size bed, micro frig and microwave. Spacious bathroom, many pillows, towels and control of room temprature.
