Christie Kennedy-Barnett

The suites were very clean and comfortable The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful The evening reception hours were an added bonus, although we only arrived in time for about 15 minutes worth it was enjoyed

Their breakfast options were quite plentiful and again the staff was very helpfulOverall our stay was wonderful and should we be in the area again for another tournament, we would definitely stay again

Steven Tracy

Had a great stay here over the weekend Staff was friendly and helpful They have a great complimentary breakfast and the dinner options are better than going out to eat

The only minor problem I faced was that there was only a plug on one side of the bed in our king suite But the room was still great Will definitely be booking my stay here from now on

Khristopher Bibey

Great place to stay for the night The rooms are very clean, there is a workout room and pool available, social hour is pretty cool with free snacks, the breakfast buffet is actually quite good and the lady who makes the omelettes is very nice, and they provided lots of amenities like soap and coffee/teaOnly complaint would be there was some broken glass in the hallway that was still there the day after we made a complaint and there was a little bit too much noise coming from upstairs when we were trying to sleep

But those are relatively minor Everything else was clean and this was a nice place to stay

Gayle was amazing and the house is beyond beautiful I had originally booked Grace’s Room which would have been plenty for me traveling on my own, but the Master Suite was available and as Gayle was showing me around the place, I decided to upgrade It was far more room than I needed but I loved every bit of it

The art deco bathroom, the sitting areas, the closet space! I fell in love with the house and the grounds, as well as Gayle’s friendliness and welcoming manner Plus a great breakfast, too! Will definitely stay here again

Anna’s Sweet Sugar Shack

I just stayed at the O’Neil mansion in Akron, she bought this home in 1990 and converted it into a bed and breakfast The home was built in 1922 and it was a gift from William O’Neil to his wife Grace Mr

O’Neil was the one who started General Tire The mansion has 4 guest rooms, all on the second floor, on the first floor is the library (which has a secret movable bookshelve where a prohibition bar was hidden), the breakfast room, the dining room, living room and the garden room as well as the kitchen The third floor is where the owner Gayle lives, she runs this place all by herself, changes all the linens, cooks breakfast, cleans, does laundry and everything else all on her own! The house has so much neat history, and she loves to tell you about it It was absolutely stunning We stayed in the family suite which had 3 bedrooms and a living room, as well as a bathroom plus another half bath I highly recommend this stunning bed and breakfast if you are going to be in the area, and it’s worth the trip if you are further away!

Mark S.

O’Neil House B&B was a wonderful stopover for me on a drive from NYC to Chicago The house is well maintained and well appointed Gayle Johnson, the owner/innkeeper was welcoming, personable, and full of information re the history of the property

The grounds are beautiful as well, and make a stunning backdrop I had a superb breakfast prepared by Gayle that was the perfect endng to a really enjoyable stay

AmAnda Fuzz

I’ve worked In hospitality for over 22 years and I can’t express how much I can appreciate good, Clean service from a hotel! This location exceeded my expectations The room was stocked, clean and comfortable The front desk girl was great and such a perfect location

Breakfast was not great, but it’s not anywhere that I’ve been in the past few years I can’t wait to return

J O’Brien

This hotel looks very nice And the front desk ladies were very kind Even though the room was very nice, it was not cleaned very well

The floor was not vacuumed well, the mirror was extremely streaky, the nightstands were very dusty, the head board had visible streaks and hand prints, as well as the closet door around the handles Also, the shower door did not have a rubber strip at the bottom, so a lot of water ran out onto floor with every shower The worst was the bed Didn’t seem like the sheets or comforter was clean And the pillows felt very flat We brought our issues to the front desk and the lady said they would have it completely cleaned, the “whole shot” as she put it She added 5000 points to my account, but that didn’t do anything When we returned to the room, the bedding was replaced and towels were replenished And that’s it No “whole shot” was done at all This was a shame, because it was a nice room But to know it wasn’t cleaned properly it just disgusting The whole room should have been FULLY cleaned after we let them know of the issues Disappointed in the customer service

Jeffery Addison

4 night stay from July 7-11 Huge issues with cleanliness Found blood stains in the bedding

House keeping did not switch out towels/bedding nightly, probably as a cost measure For the price, not very good value considering Breakfast options were severely underwhelming They literally had a waffle iron that was unplugged and set in a corner Hotel management promised us points for the gross experience, never materialized We will not be returning

Ashley Lucas

Very disappointed The staff was not friendly, the guy at the desk was rude when I asked about the $50 fee that was charged to my card that I was unaware of when booking [Front desk never said anything and it was my first time staying here]

The beds were so hard, I didn’t sleep the 2 nights I stayed It felt like I was sleeping on a wooden board The couch was more comfortable than the bed and thats where I slept The lights were so dim we couldn’t see much to get ready There was no soap in the bathroom when arriving, so I had to go down to the front and ask No bags in the trash cans The TV in the living room of the suite wouldn’t pick up reception for the channels, only one channel worked and wasn’t fuzzy Drinks were over priced and the vending machines were only ice machines For what we paid for the room, I could have went somewhere actually enjoyable We won’t be back

Dawn T

The ONLY thing that saved this rating is the location and the staff The hotel is in DESPERATE need of renovation It’s very brown

Very 90s The microwave in our room looked like one of the first microwaves ever made The beds were uncomfortable, but the view was amazing There’s even a special deck that overlooks the falls that is just for guests I’m glad we stayed here, but wouldn’t return unless they decided to upgrade But this place was super busy, so chances are, they won’t be updating any time soon It definitely was not worth the price paid, in my opinion

Jack Moyle

The staff at the Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls was amazing! The hotel itself was great, and the location is top notch While eating at the restaurant, you get a great view Cuyahoga River – it feels like you are on top of the waterfalls The proximity to restaurants and shops is first class

There are multiple shops within a quarter-mile of the hotel Highly recommend

Stephen Chiles

Always a nice hotel, but this time we planned a staycation with heavy pool time and we were surprised to see so little poolside furniture available Large gaps across the pool deck made lounges a rare commodityThe pool is very popular with guests so I can imagine we weren’t the only ones who were disappointed

Only one table umbrella for the whole pool area was also a missHope to see some improvement We’d love to come back


We reserved a DELUXE Double room that was so small we (2 small woman) had to put one of our suitcases on the refrigerator in order to walk around the room We chose this hotel because the weather was snowy/windy and cold and the Website indicated a restaurant, Beau Grill, in the Hotel WELL! The Beau Grill is NOT OPEN 7 days a week and was CLOSED on Monday so we had to travel out in bad weather to get Dinner!! I would NOT recommend this Hotel if you are expecting a HILTON Hotel experience

it was closer to Hotel 6


The hotel itself was nice, but I was upset that almost all the electric vehicle parking spots were occupied by ICE vehicles This was one of the main reasons why I picked this hotel, to charge during the night, and luckily I was able to take the last spot In the future I’d like to see better monitoring of these electric vehicle spots for EV’s, rather than internal combustion engine vehicles, and an increased number of J-1772 chargers potentially in the back corner of the hotel to avoid ICE vehicles parking in them

Brittany Humes

Staff was friendly Pool was honestly gross We booked this place to let our kiddos swim for spring break and there was hair all in the pool

It looked like it had not been cleaned in a long time There was also clumps of hair around the pool on the floorOur room had a pull out couch and came with no sheets or blankets for it None on it and nothing in the closet in the room The room only came with two bath towels so we had to ask for more- not a huge deal, but inconvenient nonetheless The end tables, lamps, and TV stands were all so dusty- again, looked like it hadn’t been properly cleaned in awhile The toilet paper roll was stamped with like a seal but the amount of paper on the roll was about 4 squares- why not put a brand new roll on when its that low?Just a lot of things that were extremely disappointing- we won’t be back Susan at the front desk was wonderful

Laurie Appelbaum

We stayed at the Cambria from July 13th -16th The staff at this hotel is one of the best I have ever come across and I traveled 20 years prior to retiring! Very professional and very nice Our room was very clean and the location was good

Two things that I feel the hotel could do to improve: The mattress on the bed was very old It was saggy and very soft It was the kind of mattress that sags in the middle when you roll over The furniture in the room is due for an update It was well worn

Abby barnard

I had to stay here for work It was horrible The photos shows a chair in my room, absolutely disgusting

There was dried blood (I assume) on the door walls in the bathroom My room was super hot without giving me the option to turn the air on In the photo you see I had it on 65 but felt like 72 That was the lowest it would go My blow dryer was broken and I ended up almost being late for work waiting for a new one The breakfast that they charge $10 for has half of what normally is free at any other hotel This hotel is close to my work office and was booked for me, but not a clean or well working place at all

Tracy at the front desk was so welcoming, friendly and outgoing Bill, a server in the food/bar area was very nice, informative about the area as we checked in The day we left we had breakfast and he was our server and still friendly and helpful

We would definitely stay again! Also, would recommend to anyone heading to Akron! The convenience/location was fabulous, as we saw a show at the Goodyear Theatre and the hotel was in walking distance!

Ken Becker

Every time I stay at a Hilton, there is something wrong in the room This time was no exception The drawers in the dresser all stuck

They would not open nor close without a fight Also, a previous guest left a takeout box with food in the dresser I had to dispose of thatThe service and dinner food were not great, either I ordered my steak medium and it came well done The waitress forgot things and was a bit rudeThe other people were nice The fitness center is nice The hotel has a pool and a hot tub That’s good I’m going to look for alternative hotels going forward

Wendi Stevenson

This was the absolute best Hilton we have visit! It was quiet, clean, extremely convenient, and the customer service was wonderful! The pool area was clean with plenty of towels We are at the restaurant which was reasonably priced with sizeable portions All in all I would definitely recommend this Hilton and will not stay anywhere else when I am in the area

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was terrific The experience was delightful Medina is not a long drive from Cleveland

The amenities were great The service was excellentOur room was fabulous and clean While it would be nice to have our beds made daily again instead of when we leave, there was plenty of linen at our disposalThe bathrooms were clean as well My mother and I slept like monarchs Thank you, Holiday Inn Express Medina, for a beautiful stay

Madison Vidman

I had to travel in from pretty far out of state for an urgent family matter It was easy to book, the staff was friendly and extremely accommodating, the rooms were extremely quiet, the blackout shades were great, and the breakfast was really a life saver! Cannot express how grateful I am to how well things went at this Hotel, my stay there really helped alleviate a lot of stress

molly mitchell

We had originally scheduled a stay here for one night and due to unforseen circumstances we ended up staying 8 nights 99% of the staff were AMAZING The staff, all the women who worked during the day, housekeeping, breakfast area everyone, were wonderful

They were so helpful and their customer service was outstanding All except one gentleman who worked the desk in the morning For reasons unknown This one gentleman continually gave me a hard time about my service dog He insisted that I use the side or back door Not only did that not make sense seeing as how the elevator is by the front door and going in the side meant walking my service dog half way across the hotel to get to the elevator, handicap parking is at the front which also meant walking halfway around the building(sidewalks were covered in ice)but the entire rest of the staff knew that they were having problems with the card access,half the time it did not work Another member of the staff, a younger guy who worked at night told us that they were aware of the problem but unfortunately there maintenance man had been injuredAs a traveling tradesmen my husband spends 45 weeks a year in hotels many of which are IHG brand(holiday inn express is his go too) and he made mention more than once that the staff at this particular Holiday Inn express were great What was an extremely difficult time for my family (This was not a work related stay nor a vacation)was made quite a bit easier thanks to The staffThank you to everyone who went above and beyond to made things easier It was/is greatly appreciated

The rooms are a little small but they are awesome The staff is great and very friendly and helpful The restaurant has a very nice menu which I am happy since I didn’t have to drive anywhere the day closed confit egg rolls were good

And I enjoyed the Unami salmon The only bad thing is that service was too fast and rushed Would like to see them to slow down My main course came out about 5 minutes after I got my egg rollsThe hotel room is very nice bed is very comfortable

Sarah Binder

I didn’t even get to stay here because it’s their “policy” that the owner of the card used has to be present when checking in My boyfriend bought me a room while I’m here alone for an AA conference Not only was this extremely inconvenient (had to cancel his reservation/lots of other hotels completely booked), the manager lady who I dealt with was very rude and unprofessional

She was rude to the employee there that was clearly brand new, and rude to me Room was overpriced anyways Guess I’ll never get the experience!

Andre Popov

Finally! A nice, modern hotel in downtown! No more staying out in Fairlawn/Montrose among all the strip malls Way overdue in downtown AkronThe hotel is clean, comfortable, and designed well while incorporating the history of the landmark building

Staff were also great – typical of the Marriott experience

Samantha Bonar

Downtown Akron’s Courtyard Marriott is the absolute best To start, Sheryl in management was amazing to work with So helpful and polite in helping me block rooms for our guests

We had a ton of rooms reserved for our big day and everything went so smoothly Hotel staff were very helpful with handing out welcome bags Location was excellent My guests raved about the Speakeasy, outdoor patio, and proximity to Akron staple Luigi’s Very clean rooms We stayed in a suite and it was the best hotel we have ever stayed in Use this hotel for your Akron wedding or a weekend getaway So glad we did!!

Shane Randall

Cool location with Food and drinking options walking distance Rooms were top notch stand up shower could easily accommodate 2 people or even 3 if that’s your thing Breakfast cost is extra but decent menue

Staff is friendly Parking is a 3 out of 5 but you shouldn’t have issues finding it just prepare to walk a little bit Overall I would stay again considering the options if I work close by again

Stephanie Bohnak

This hotel is beautiful It is a wow factor I am originally from the Akron area and am a graduate student in NW Ohio

For an academic conference, several of us came down and stayed at this location I heard nothing but praise among my fellow scholars and I must agree with them The rooms are up to date, clean, and beautiful Each room seems to have everything you could ever need and the bed was incredibly comfortable The Northside Speakeasy which is located in the hotel has wonderful cocktails and attentive staff They pull out all the stops for their guests and I highly recommend the Grasshopper if you like chocolate and mint My significant other joined me and had a lavender cocktail that was amazing! The hotel is located close to Lock15 where several scholars went for dinner as well as Luigi’s which is an Akron staple! I would highly recommend this hotel for business and couples!

Do not stay in this hotel! Find somewhere else to go! Don’t be deceived it looks nice on the outside and around the common areas but that is where it stops Our room looked like someone destroyed it and they didn’t put anyone in there for months Spider webs were everywhere, I had to kill 5 spiders that were dangling from the ceiling

I went to put my little girls to bed on the pull out couch and it had the nastiest bed stains all over it The water pressure in the room was very low The king mattress in the master bedroom was stained (The only reason I saw this one was because the sheets were too small and pulled off in the night) After all of this the best thing we could get was 75 dollars off of 1 night and we stayed there for 2 Chester is the manager and obviously doesn’t care about his accountability for the cleanliness of the hotel or how the guests feel I went down to ask for towels since we were provided 2 for a 2 night stay, and I could only get 1 more because they didn’t have more washed! There are plenty of hotels in the area! Do yourself a favor and pick somewhere else!

Betsy Eggers

I booked two King Suite rooms for my family of 6 The hotel was clean and comfortable Every interaction we had with staff was positive, professional, and courteous

The pool was great! If we are in this area again we will once again choose this hotel We were there for two mornings, and both mornings the breakfast options were great with a few different changes in the hot items each day Thank you for a wonderful weekend stay!

Pankaj R

We stayed at this hotel for a few days in June, 2022 It looks like it has been through a remodel/renovation and most of hotel’s area looks modern and inviting The hot breakfast is what you would typically expect and the staff working the breakfast seemed energetic and friendly

However, I am not sure who designed the rooms We stayed in a studio suite ending in 20 It was during a warm spell and the AC had to run Unfortunately, it blasts straight on to the bed The vent is large and not flexible so there is no way to prevent the cold blast from hitting you directly The bathroom was nice but the shower door leaked water onto the floors Apparently, this seems to be an occurrence with at least a few roomsSo, while the hotel is nice, I’m not sure I would pick it again if we were in the area

This was our first stay at a Hyatt brand hotel and we stayed for 5 days We will definitely be staying at more Hyatt hotels in the future This particular hotel set the bar high

The room was very comfortable and very clean Everything was working The hotel was well staffed in both number and quality Everyone we encountered, including the cleaning staff was outgoing, knowledgeable and extremely friendly The breakfast had a nice variety of food and was always well stocked and clean Jon was very customer oriented, well versed in the local attractions and was happy to see everyone in the morning, setting the day off to a nice start Jon echoed the overall culture of the hotel, really making everyone feel at home As an extra bonus, the pool and workout room were fully functioning and clean The pool was the right temperature And the treadmills had fun, interactive workouts Thank you for making our Ohio trip enjoyable

I am very upset with Hyatt Canton place We had reservations for 5 rooms that were made on the website 3 weeks later I get an email saying they had been canceled with absolutely no reason

I called and found out the hotel had overbooked because someone did not block off rooms for a festival in town So they just canceled all the latest bookings We were booked with confirmation #s for a holiday weekend and they basically left us scrambling to find rooms The prices also had gone way up They also accused me of trying to use gov rate? If I’m a government employee I’m allowed to use that rate This has definitely left me very upset with Hyatt I have never in all my years of travel had a hotel just cancel without trying to relocate to another hotel or offer a free night for your troubles especially when they screwed up I was told there was a glitch in there system Manager Matt was very uncaring about the situation When I asked for the corporate phone # he told me to find it myself The negative reviews keep coming for this hotel Please read the reviews before booking here

I stayed at this hotel and I was impressed with the professionalism of the staff, the ladies there were very friendly, well groomed, and overall they seemed to love their job and take great pride in it! The room was amazing, spotless! I did my usual floor check with a wet towel and it was clean enough to eat off of, although I don’t recommend it but OMG the place was so beautifully decorated! The lobby was just as beautiful I didn’t find anything wrong except the dry muffins at breakfast Other than that it’s the perfect hotel!!

A small hotel but CLEAN and staffed with friendly people willing to go the extra mile to meet requests The complimentary breakfast had a huge variety between hot and cold options, including sausage gravy and biscuits (delicious!) unexpected but very much appreciated I was not anticipating this kind of quality service and comfort for an economically priced hotel – happily surprised and didn’t spend a fortune

Shout out to Amber and Mychalene especially for their fantastic hospitality!

We recently went back to visit Akron, Ohio for a funeral and stayed at the Hampton Inn on Springside Drive The General Manager Jamie Baker was wonderful to work with and made our stay more enjoyable She truly went above and beyond and was very pleasant

Also, we liked the breakfast room, there were a lot of good food choices and it was very freshThank you Jamie for being such a professional and so accomodating!

Not impressed for the price point They have construction on going, no pool, no weight room but that did not effect our stay The room was overpriced in my opinion

The AC/Heater had no wall mounted thermostat, so I was half expecting Tom Bodett to jump out and turn the light on for us The water was not hot enough for a decent shower I did not stand in the shower and waste time, but it was barely luke warm bordering on cold by the 2 minute mark That did however wake me up Breakfast is always expected to be iffy, but the selection was sparce For over a buck fifty we expected a little more At least the waffles, maybe my expectations are too high The bed was firm and that is ok for some, and I am not dinging them for that When I requested an extra blanket from the front desk, the customer service worker looked at me like I had two heads I am fairly certain they were as shocked that I asked, as I was that they do not but give you one, when asked Hell, most of the hotels have them in the rooms either a closet or dresser drawer The room was clean, the staff was nice, and it was quite for the most part Again, the cost for what is offered is my main complaint

Our room was spacious and quite comfortable The towels were lush Carrie, the hostess, is knowledgeable and really wants to make sure you enjoy your stay

She left a sweet treat on our bed and welcomed us to enjoy coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the living room There were games and books available Carrie had great suggestions for dining and shopping The breakfast was excellent and we were even treated to some leftover muffins I haven’t stayed in a bed and breakfast in many years and was initially nervous to book – however, our stay was great and I would strongly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Canton area It is also very convenient to the McKinley Memorial and Library and the Football Hall of Fame

Carrie was an excellent host The hospitality was out of this world I had to be checked out super early due to my work schedule and she accommodated breakfast for myself and my coworker

She was so gracious about it and the food was heavenly Highly recommend staying here It’s a 7 minute drive to the football hall of fame and you can get anywhere very quickly

Ashleigh Porter

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! The hosts were very kind and knowledgeable about the area The entire house and our room and bathroom were very clean and cozy Every amenity and detail was thought of and provided by the hosts

We were very comfortable throughout our stay Breakfast was absolutely delicious!! It’s a great, very well run B&B and I would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a place near Canton!
