The best word to describe this hotel is Ewwww! Dirty, musty and just a dump. Starting with the parking lot which is broken up pavement and full of pot holes you could lose a truck in. Carpet throughput the hotel is stained and I'm sure that is where the smell was coming from. They advertise wifi but we couldn't connect...

Hey everybody! What a horrible experience we had tonight! Just trying to take my girl to a Jacuzzi suite for some relaxation. What happened follows: There was not a single hotel/motel room within 50 miles of Akron, Ohio, EXCEPT AT THE QUALITY INN ON GILCHRIST ROAD IN AKRON, OHIO (NOW CALLED THE EXECUTIVE INN although with the same owner as...

what a nightmare. SO scary. No other cars in the parking lot. It was like the ghetto Shining. Me & my parents have been staying here since the 90's while it was still a Best Western. It was never perfect, and that's ok. It was only a mile from our other families residences. The room was musty and not clean....

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was better than a lot of 2 star hotels. Free newspaper, internet on some floors. The coffee in the room was weak but it was easy to get more at the front desk. Checkin and Checkout very easy. Bed was comfy and the heater worked fine. If you want non-smoking, be...

We stayed here for the Football Hall Of Fame game. Everywhere else was booked. And to top it off, the hotel doubled the rates for the saturday stay. First impression: The parking lot looked like it was just jack hammered. Lobby smelled of sewage. Hallway to our room smelled of sewage. Stayed in room 330. It was supposed to be...

We have stayed here a few times but last night will be the very last time. First, most of the reviews are accurate. It is an older motel, not always the cleanest but you get what you pay for. The only thing I will disagree with is the area is not a bad part of town. The motel and the...

Non smoking room is a joke. The first room we entered stunk so bad we couldn't enter. The second one was better but still stunk. My hubby had to hurry to be in a wedding. We were left there. The hall ways stink but the elevator is the worst. The swimming had garbage in it. The air conditioning did not...
