Hampton Inn Akron-South

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel seems to be new in the last couple of years. The rooms are small relative to other Hamptons I've stayed in. My associate arrived at his room around 9:00PM and it had not been cleaned (beds unmade, trash cans full, TV on). He was given another room, but the TV was left on in that one as well. Weird, but not the end of the world. Bed was very comfortable. However, the soundproofing was nonexistent. For example, I sneezed - not a loud sneeze - and the guy in the room next door said "Bless you!" I could hear his phone conversations throughout the evening. He was speaking in a regular volume. While the staff, particularly the breakfast staff, was extremely nice, I wouldn't stay here solely due to the soundproofing issue.

This is my second time here in 6 months. The hotel is what you would topically expect from a Hampton hotel. Everything is clean, the breakfast is standard, and the personnel is courteous. I recommend it if you are in the area.

Everything was nice and clean and the staff was professional and courteous. The room was updated and nicely decorated. The complimentary breakfast had a nice variety to choose from. I enjoyed my brief stay.

This hotel was very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was very good with a nice selection. The only problem we had was attaching to the complimentary Wi-Fi. Only one device was able to and there were many steps.

Room is clean and comfortable. Staffs are heartwarming and complimentary breakfast is convenient and with good quality. It's located next to the highway, very easy access. Will definitely recommend it to others.

Would like a better rate at this location for Veterans like I get at other Hampton Inns and Holiday Inns This should be standard I have traveled for 48 years I will continue to use chain motels when I travel It would be nice to have a directory to use to look up to plan my travel If you would just send them to members once a year

Found that we needed reservations near Derby Downs as my grandson was competing in the 80th Anniversary of the International race in Akron,Ohio. Became a Hilton's Honors Friends and Family member and made the reservations in the Hampton Inn that I thought was in the correct area. As it turned out, I was wrong. The staff member in the Streetsboro Hampton was very understanding and helped me figure out the I needed to be at the South Akron Hampton, and luckily, rooms were available.

Very clean, nice new hotel. Shopping and plenty of good restaurants close by. The staff was very helpful and knew the area quite well. If I'm ever in the area again I would definitely go out of my way to stay at this hotel.

This hotel provides excellent care! The staff are all caring and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is wonderful and if you need anything, all you need to do is ask! The staff is so good that the guests feel comfortable enough to talk together as if they are at home with friends! The Hampton Inn Akron South truly cares about the guests!

We stayed here to be close to family for an anniversary get together and all-in-all it is a good value for the money. The food was similar to other Hampton Inns we have stayed in the past. They do have a particularly large lobby area for hanging out and there was always plenty of seats for breakfast--not always true at other hotels that offer free breakfast. The pool was also nice ( no hot tub, but the pool water was warm). The 'except' was something I have never experienced in a hotel before: we arrived quite late and in getting ready for bed, I noticed the sink drain was quite slow... So slow that if you let the water run for more than 15 seconds, there would still be water in the sink in 5 minutes. It was pretty gross after you brush your teeth. So the next morning I reported it to the front desk, and they said they would let housekeeping or maintenance know. Now, I think at least ONE member of housekeeping had to know--how do you clean a sink while only running the water for a few seconds? In any case, it was not fixed for the 3 nights we stayed there, so that when we arrived home, I felt an odd relief when going to brush my teeth in our normal, functioning sink. I did not go back to the front desk each morning to ask about it; everything else about our room was fine, we just got used to quickly turning the water off when doing anything in that sink. I just don't really see what excuse there would be-- I think housekeeping should have made sure it was fixed, even before we stayed there they should have known; it doesn't take an engineer to throw Drano down the drain. Whether weekend or holiday they should have had staff to fix this.
