Verified Reviews of Comfort Inn & Suites Kent University Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The first room we were out in was very dirty and smelled like molded clothes. We tried booking our stay online and when we went to check out it wouldn't let me so o got a text message that said to finish my reservation to call the number so I called they told me the original room I had wanted to book was sold out that I had to upgrade so I did and was assured this room was for two adults and four kids and would include the wrist bands When I got to the hotel I found out that the room was actually a smaller room intended for two people so only two wristbands were included and I had to pay $75 out of pocket for the other five wristbands in the hotel refused to do anything about it because they said it was a third party website that did the reservation but I was trying to reserve it on their site and that's the number that they gave me.

"Dirty rough around the edges."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Needs updating for sure. Floors were dirty in the hallways. Only one light in the room which I found super odd as I had to do office work and there wasn't a light at the table/desk. Really needs an update and more outlets!

"We Had Problems"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The pool and hot tub here are really nice. The first room we were in the blow dryer and plug in bathroom did not work. Which caused us to have to move rooms which they put us on a floor above the floor we were on which was inconvenient with all the stuff we had to move. Then the second room we got had an awful smell in it plus an elevator right near it which was loud thought the night. I don't know if I would stay here again.

"Nice Hotel, but Paper Thin Walls."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel was clean and the staff very friendly. However, you could hear people running up and down the halls on the 2nd floor and 3rd floor above which was noisy.
