Hotel was very clean and up-to-date! Very nice atmosphere. Rooms/Beds were very comfy and cozy! Good value for the price. I would definitely stay again in the future, as well as recommend this hotel to family and friends!

I’ve stayed at this location several times and it has always been an excellent choice. Would not stay at another hotel in Akron. The employees are amazing very friendly and very helpful. Thank you for a great experience as usual

Stayed one night on the third floor when traveling cross country. Friendly staff, comfortable room. Walkable to restaurants and a large shopping mall across the street. The water here is extremely soft so took some effort to rinse off and get shampoo out of my hair. This was also the case while washing hands. Nothing can be done and no complant, just be aware to use less of everything. Can not comment on breakfast as did not partake.

Rooms and lobby were clean. Front desk friendly. Housekeeping a bit moody as we had 5 rooms and not all of the cleaned correctly for our second night stay - but they were all clean when we arrived. The biggest issue is that even though the complimentary breakfast is to go until 10, the breakfast staff decided at 9:15 to stop restocking it. She was pretty rude about us asking for something even as simple as milk. I would recommend this hotel- but plan to eat breakfast early or be prepared to spend $ to eat breakfast elsewhere. I would stay here again.

We had a choice to stay up in Fairlawn versus this location south of Akron. We are glad we stayed here and avoided the busy Fairlawn area and the bonus of a very nice hotel. Great staff during our stay and pleasant room.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a wedding we attended in Akron. We could tell the hotel had recently been renovated because everything looked new. The room (regular room-king bed) was in excellent condition. The mattress and the pillows were comfortable. The fitness center had all new equipment, with individual tv's on the cardio equipment along with a larger tv for the entire room. The look and feel made for a great workout atmosphere for a hotel fitness center. The complimentary breakfast in the morning had a great selection of food with plenty of tables and chairs throughout the area. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I ever get back to the Akron area.

Arrived late, no airport shuttle. Our mistake was not checking Uber first since there was a $25 taxi pick-up fee at the airport so the 5 mile taxi was $45. Great breakfast and customer service. Uber back to the airport was $11.

Hallway carpeting looks like it should be in a whorehouse. TV and phone did not work. Hotel was so loud overnight they had to call police to kick people out. Will never stay here again- ever. Stay somewhere else!

We have stayed at several Hamptons around the Midwest and south and I would rate this hotel as the best. Excellent service, cleanliness, and the best breakfast to date. We will definitely stay again when in Akron.

We have chosen this hotel each time we visit our grandson at the U of Akron. It has always been a pleasant experience. It is convenient to the university and has plenty of restaurants, shopping and a church near by.
