Breakfast was very good. The person in charge of the breakfast service didn't excellent job. The room was nice. Was not happy that the pool was closed between 10 PM and 9 AM prohibiting my use of it. If they are going to have it it should be open.

Second time staying at this hotel. Rooms have be updated and are very nice. Still working on outside of hotel. Parking is not the best at this time. Also hotel is in between two not so great of hotels which hurts this one. Need maybe some kind of wall or something to hide the other ones. Breakfast really need to be improve.

Shelly, Mark, everyone at this location were Fantastic! It was a 100% full, busy graduation never would have known. Professional, friendly, helpful staff. Love this Hampton Inn!

Spent one night here and was as expected in a Hampton . This is one reason why we like to stay with this line of hotels. Quiet and staff very friendly. Breakfast good. Remodel done recently and very nice. Air conditioning worked great. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel is almost impossible to find as it is squeezed between 2 other hotels and not on the main road. The other entrance was tricky as you were not sure if you were going in or back on to the highway. More signage is needed.. Whoever picked this location to build it must have gotten a great deal on the land...

We stay at this location every time we are passing through this area. Always have been pleased with the accommodations. The complimentary breakfast is very good. Everything is very nice for the value.

Even though we are only passing through, we always stay here whenever possible. Quality accommodations, excellent location, good price. What more could one want? The only caveat is you will need to go into town for lunch and dinner. We found it worthwhile, though, with many good options to choose from within a 5 mile radius.

Stayed at this particular Hampton Inn while traveling for a friends baby shower. Check in was fast and friendly and they were very happy to give us a noon check out instead of the 11am check out time. Room was immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast was typical breakfast for Hampton. Each employee I came in contact with was friendly and quick with a smile! I will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I were driving through and decided to stay here for the night. I was astonished by how clean the rooms were! I didn't expect much with it being by the interstate but I was pleasantly surprised. This hotel was cleaner than the ones I stay at on a normal basis.

The staff and inside of the hotel were wonderful. The exterior is under construction so don't be put off by that. Once you're thru the doors it's a pleasant surprise. The front desk staff was so accommodating and helpful. I went to get a cup of water on my way out and the desk staff offered me a cold bottle so I could take it with me. I thought that was so thoughtful! Also, the breakfast staff was attentive and friendly.

Not a good value, housekeeping a joke, feet stuck to the carpet, ice machine didn't work, poor linen service, noisy, breakfast area too small for amount of guests, cereal and toaster items stale and hot breakfasts were greasy rubber. Definitely did not live up to the Hampton Inn reputation.

We totally recommend this hotel for any family looking to rest and enjoy a great nights sleep! Wonderful staff & breakfast when you are ready to begin your next day on the road! The warm welcome at the front desk along with a refreshing dip in the enclosed pool will make you want to stop often; if not return! We say just give them a try & you will like it!

This is our 4 th year staying at Hampton Inn and the hotel and staff added to our enjoyment. I have attended about 62 of our 100 family reunions and stayed at various hotels. This by far is the best and Tiffany Lee of sales made sure my family's stay was comfortable and added to our event. A big thanks to Tiffany and the staff at Kent Hampton Inn

Stayed here on July 21, 2016 as a mid way point on our way to Indiana. We payed with cash so we had to put down a deposit. The front staff was accomodating and professional. They offered free water and cookies in the lobby. At night, they bought about 15 pizza's for guests to eat. Never seen that before. Nice. Room was very clean, with microwave and refrigerator. Obviously, this hotel is not owned by the Patels!

We have stayed at this Hampton Inn in the past and we always found the rooms to be very clean, but slightly outdated. We were pleasantly surprised to see that rooms have all been renovated and updated! You cannot beat the quality of this hotel and the great rates!! Staff are always very welcoming and helpful. Continental breakfast was delicious. Can't wait to make a return trip!

I don't know if this hotel would be good for multiple days, but it was fine for overnight. Used HHonors App to check in ahead of time. When I arrived, I showed my ID, answered a few questions, my keys were already prepared and I was on my way. Fastest check-in ever. Room was nice. Updated features, but the showerhead dial for pulsing was broken. Bathroom counter was small but the bathroom had a wonderful cubby system for your toiletries and towels.

Our room was given to another guest so we were put into a subpar room on the ground level. This Hampton Inn is way below the standard Hampton Inn. Not clean and seems like a converted Super 8! Would not stay here again!

My wife and I have stayed at the Hampton many times and have always had a good stay. This time was far from the norm. After a very long drive we where both tired, we where looking forward to a relaxing evening in the pool. When we arrived at the hotel we walked into a youth birthday party in the lobby, balloons all over the floor, McDonald's happy meal boxes scattered everywhere with young children screaming and running allover unsupervised. We felt really out of place and not welcomed. Its like... Read more

I enjoyed my one night stay here while in the Kent area. I was on a road trip and planned to visit the historical attractions at Kent State U. the next morning and this hotel was close by. The room was clean and comfortable despite renovations going on elsewhere in the hotel at the time. The pool was nice and the included breakfast was good. Staff was nice.

I don't normally visit a Hampton Inn, but this was the host hotel for a football game I was attending. There wasn't anything really wrong here, just the room was not as eye-catching as others I've stayed in. It was dark and dreary, especially with that hulking dark wardrobe in the corner. The room was clean, the bed was comfy and the property is about 10 minutes away from Kent State. Customer service was A-1!

Holds were placed on my credit card for 5 nights even though I was only staying 1 night. I did not realize this until I returned home the next day and checked my credit card account online. I called the hotel and asked them to release the extra 4 nights of holds on my credit card and Stephanie refused. Not a major problem for me but ridiculous service so be careful if you have limited credit.

We have stayed at the Hampton Inn at Kent, OH several times. Both of our sons attend Kent State and the Hampton has always been a great place to stay. It is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, it is easy access to the interstate and for the price, you can't beat it.

We stayed here during a peak time (Kent graduation) so there were not really bargains to be had, but the rooms were very nice. Beds were super comfy and room decor updated and tasteful. Breakfast was plentiful with adequate choices. The breakfast eating area was small for the amount of guests trying to eat when we did. Desk help was friendly. Parking was adequate. Swimming was refreshing and a nice change of pace. Coffee and hot tea and cocoa available always. Would stay again.

We have been on a few road trips this year and almost always stay at Hampton Inns or Holiday Inn Expresses. Up until this specific Hampton Inn we were thrilled and our expectations were met and beyond. When we called for reservations at the Hampton Inn in Kent, Ohio we specifically asked for a quiet room not near the elevator and hopefully on the 1st floor. Upon arrival, same person checking us in that we spoke to on phone, we were given the last room down the 1st floor hall where the vendin... Read more

A very nice representation of the brand. It's an older property, but has had some nice upgrades. Victoria at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming, and the room was clean and had some nice carpeting and a redone bathroom. Plenty of outlets, comfy bed, though a little on the darker side with the older style lighting units and wooden wall unit. A decent price for the area, and not too far from the highway or restaurants. They also had a nice manager reception the night I was there with... Read more

Stayed here on my way to another town. Close to the interstate and noise was apparent. Rooms are a bit dated but still clean. Service was good - typical of Hampton Inns. Few restaurant choices near here that are decent. Overall, just 'ok'.
