Verified Reviews of Kent State University Hotel & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I will be back again! Beautiful and clean hotel!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel was beautiful and clean. The layout was up to date. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. I appreciated the salt water pool and hot tub and went into them both days I was there. Not too many hotels have an operating pool anymore and this was literally refreshing. The second floor terrace was so nice to sit and enjoy the the summer night together. Overall I give this hotel two thumbs up.
