“Still a great place to stay!!!!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Recently returned to Kent and stayed at the Hampton Inn. Clean and well maintained, with a renovated lobby and eating area. The best thing about staying here however, is the staff. The manager, Shelly, has a well trained, motivated and professionally competent staff. Really a pleasure doing business with this organization.

Room Tip: Room 330 is a bit bigger and very quiet.

Hotel was very nice, enjoyed the tuesday night pizza, was unexpected but enjoyable. Rooms were nice and quiet. I plan on staying again. Hotel was close to restaurants, and convience stores. Everything was a short distance from the hotel.

Enjoyable stay. Very clean. Breakfast was excellent with many hot selections. Staff was friendly. Bathroom was very large and well stocked with towels. Our group travelling together was able to utilize the breakfast area for a comfortable meeting area in the evening.

This was my first time to the Kent Area and what a great find with this Hampton Inn. The staff here is OUTSTANDING....and took care of everything we needed....they were all quick with suggestions of places to go in the area (the Flea Market was by FAR the best suggestion and one I highly recommend if you go to the area) It was nice to be greeted my name coming and going. I would like to give Kea high props and she was quick to take care of my Dad when we got back to the hotel after being out and my dad had fallen and scraped himself up....she showed genuine concern and was quick to get an old towel for him as he was afraid of messing up the pillowcases. This most assuredly will be a place I stay again in the future.

This was a fantastic stay all the way around....there was a little minor bump in the beginning...but true to the Hampton Way....the were quick to fix the problem as best as they could....it in no way put a dmper on my experience there. The staff is one of the far more caring groups...I didn't meet one that didn't smile...or welcome you as you walked in the door. I look forward to my next stay when I am in Kent. On a side note....be advised that the handicap accessible room ONLY have a double bed....not a king and no pull out. This can be difficult if traveling with an aide.

Overall, the facility was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to remember you the next day. The continental breakfast was less than desirable. The facility was full of parents with teens for a baseball tournament yet there was no significant noise.

Had a reservation, but when I arrived at 11:30pm was informed that "One room had to be taken out of service". I was then politely moved to a very nice hotel 5 minutes away - the Kent State University Hotel. Front desk staff, in particular evening manager, Kea, were very efficient and helpful -- and seemed sincere in their apologies. Since the room at the Kent State hotel was comp'd, i have absolutely no complaints as to how this was handled -- other than a pending request to get Hilton Honors credit for one night/one stay.

Of note: A couple that arrived as i was leaving was also walked to the Kent State University hotel. Hmm... perhaps the issue was that they were over-booked, rather than with rooms being taken out of service?

Room Tip: Arrive early enough in the evening to avoid the over-booking issue... or call ahead to confirm your...
