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... More

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.

Easy access from freeway. Easy to get to Campus and downtown. Very clean and extremely friendly staff. A little pricey. Loud family of kids above us constant running. I am sure this is not a usual problem though. Easy to use Internet with good connection,

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... More

I have stayed at this location at least 10 separate times. The rooms have always been very clean, and all linens perfect. Very comfortable beds, and pillows. Typically stay on the first floor each time, and it has always been very quite.
