Hotel is pretty rundown, but basically clean and comfortable mini fridge and microwave in rooms; non smoking rooms better quality than smoking rooms, albeit only on second floor. Friendly family run operation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK for the night"
The hotel is downtown and offers weekly rates. The upper floor is non smoking but the smoke from down stairs filters up and is smelt in the room, plus there were ashtrays on the balcony of our room filled with butts. If you need a bed for the night it is fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was relatively cheap, but should have been cheaper. The room was very basic, with trim peeling off the walls and outdated plumbing. The water did not get cold. There were some visible stains on the sheets and towels. The smoke detector in the hall was beeping all night. There were suspicious fees on the bill that were non-refundable. The […] hallways stank. The lobby window had a glass barrier. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice, inexpensive hotel"
I was nervous after all the poor reviews of this hotel, but it turned out to be a very nice place. Yes, dated. But very clean. And the hotel staff was very nice, as well. The room I was in had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The A/C worked well. The bed was a bit firm for my liking, but that is just personal preference. The weirdest thing, though, […] was that upon leaving on Labor day, the whole town (or so it seemed) was assembled and waiting for a parade. It would have been nice to be given an alternative "exit strategy," but I drove down the street anyway and got a few waves from the bystanders. Regardless, I would go back to this hotel.

"Only place available at time"
It could of been a little more friendly, if you wanted morning coffee you had to get dressed and drive down street for coffee there was nothing available in room or in lobby. Need to change that, would not have to drive down street just for coffee and than back to hotel to pack and get ready to depart.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for the price"
very clean and well maintained older hotel. i will likely stay here again in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was ok for one night stop. The rooms smelled funny, bed were comfy but not super clean. Area where the hotel was is in like an industrial park and the free wifi sucked not a very big signal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay in Mansfield, OH"
Clean room, friendly staff, but motel needs up-dating; few amenities;Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend stay for AMA races"
This is a fairly old motel, and shows it. They are doing some remodelingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice downtown hotel"
Nice hotel yet not much in the area for food or entertainmentGenuine Expedia guest review
This place is such a better deal than the Holiday Inn across the street. Bed was very comfortable and clean, but shower was small and in need of replacement. I would recommend overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was close to everything we needed."
It was worth the price we paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
not good, bed was broke downGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean, the bed comfortable. Check in/check out was easyThats all that I really care aboutGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Took one look at the place and did not stay. It was awful. Looked like people were living in some of the rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would Stay Again"
room was clean and comfortable, a/c was a little loud, staff gave excellent serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
"What we expected"
We have stayed here before and knew what to expect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older place but very nice for the money"
With the reviews before my family went I was a little worried, but we've stayed in a lot worse for a lot more money. It is a older place, but it had everything we needed for our stay. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap hotel, clean room, close to track"
The lobby and hallway were pretty stark and stinky as you might expect with a cheap hotel, but the room was clean and kept up with fresh paint and appliances.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Racing @ MidOhio"
Room was clean, had great ac, bed was typical hotel type. Overall, room was good value for money on a pro race weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Better than I expected as I drove up to the motel. The lobby has a high security, small area not seemly at all. However as I got to my room it was a pleasant surprise. It may have been plain but it was clean, the carpet was newish and the TV and A/C worked very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight for mid Ohio race"
Hotel is pretty run down, area is questionable. There are no restaurants nearby. Price was not great considering the condition of the hotel. You must leave $5 for key at check-in. Was very concerned about leaving motorcycle in lot. Ice machine broken. Party store attached, but over priced. Would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Did not like, bed was in bad shape doors look and feel like some one could kick right through them hallway stunk,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good except for hooker knocking at door looking for two menGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Price, not bad accomodations, however the smell is enough to run you out of the place. If it weren't for the smell, it would be a great deal. However, it smells like an overpowering odor of Khoury. It's enough to turn your stomach. I woke up mulitple times in the night just from the smell. Other than that, it wasn't that bad besides from the fact […] they said they only had 1 room left when we called to book a day prior to arrival. Then when we get there, we were literally the only car in the lot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"the merit inn Mansfield ohio"
It was very cozy and relaxing can't complain and the staff was greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Well...this was a hotel. The TV kept shutting itself off...there was no alarm clock, and the shower was like a dorm shower. I booked here because i was in town on business and didn't want to spend a lot...but the next night i stayed across the street at a much nicer hotel for only $5 more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"This hotel was downtown amid one way streets."
Hard to find. Would have never found it without GPS. Picture on Hotel.ocm was misleading and must have been taken years ago. Steep indoor stairs and no in room affinities. The heating system did not work properly or not at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definently stay here again."
Great value. Located in the Historical District...near the Mansfield Carousel. We came for my Mothers' Class Reunion (1942)...and a Family reunion in Bellville. We discovered so many improvements to downtown; my Mother was amazed. There was a mix-up in our Reservations (someone else w/same name chkd. in just before us) the mgt. made it RIGHT. She had […] to give us a first floor room (Smoking) because my 86 yr old Mother couldn't climb the stairs...the Mgt. cleaned our room so thoroughly you couldn't smell a hint of "smoke" on a Smoking Floor.(I'm a NON-smoker!) They were very accommodating to us. Also discovered the "best" Breakfast for under $4 @ Kruzinz' just up the street one block. It was a great experience. Wish the Theatre across the street offered a Play while we were there. One week too early! The Carousel was worth the ride ($2 for 3 Seniors). We look forward to next year for my Moms' 70th Class Reunion; we'll stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A bargain on race weekend."
I stayed at the Merit Inn so as to attend the Mid Ohio track for Rolex weekend. I found the location convenient to the track. The manager/owner was very courteous and eager to accommodate all my requests. The wi-fi worked well, had a fridge, and everything worked as it should. No complaints. I would stay again. Considering the room rate was a fraction […] of the "cookie cutter chains" pricing I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to a friend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for Race Weekend"
It was a very simple room but very convenient for a Race Weekend. Nice to have a balcony. Close to race track.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very satisfied with our stay at the Merit Inn. It was within walking distance to downtown Mansfield - found the carousel (which is just beautiful). Was convenient to Mid-Ohio and people were very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"merit hotel good location for car races"
hotel location is great for mid ohio car races... I would reccommend it for guys weekend... the wifes or girlfriends will not like the place in general.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A pleasanter stay than I expected"
From other reviews, I was concerned that this hotel might be a dive. I stayed here anyway, because the location was where I needed to be. I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the hotel is old, and it shows. But it's clean, quiet, and comfortable, and the staff were polite and friendly with me. And all for considerably less money than the other hotels in […] Mansfield. I would definitely stay at Merit Inn again if I needed to be in Mansfield. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the price"
Not the best but the lowest price I could find. They are fixong the hotel up but it needs quite a bit. Down town location is not the best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Merit Inn - Mansfield, OH"
All I am willing to say is you get what you pay for. The rest of the hotels in the area were charging twice what we paid for the Merit Inn, with good reason. Bathroom and shower doors that do not close, tv's that do not work, and balcony doors that are painted shut. Need I say more?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the money"
Appears run down but the room and bathroom are in good condition. The location is great and centrally located in Mansfield. Never had any problems with noise or the such. Would go back again for this price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Seemed to be an old hotel that they were keeping running. The place was simply a place so sleep. If you are looking for "nice". look else where. Oh yes, a $5.00 room key deposit??? Really!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not an Acccessible Hotel"
Although my reservation was not made directly through the Merit Inn, I thought I had booked a wheelchair accessible room. The proprietors were so kind and were invested in making my stay work, offering personal help. Unfortunately, this wasn't eneough, but they said they's convert a back room suite into an accessible room for future customers or my […] return stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Merit Inn in Mansfield, OH- a bargaining alternati"
I arrived early in 6 AM, the frontdesk allowed me to check-in my room at once. Remarkable service! The room condition is fair, you cannot ask for more with this price. The only drawback is the WiFi-connection inside the room. Only 3 spot is connectable with weak signal, behind the TV, in the bathroom, or at the room door. However, you'll get super smooth […] WiFi outside the room in the corridor. (You get socket in the corridor too, lol) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our recent stay in the place was not good.The door had a dead bolt but the key we had didn't work in the lock. Whene we got there a guy was outside looking at us as we were going in. This made us uneasy for the whole night. We couldn't wait to get out of there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Can't wait to go back"
From the moment I arrived at the Merit Inn I was made to feel like I was at home.OK,its not what you call posh,but for me it felt better than any hotel I have ever stayed at,talking of 3 and 4 Stars,give me the Merit any time.As I was staying for 2 weeks they put a Microwave in my room,but there is microwave also on the landing.I did find the shop on […] the ground floor very useful,it had every think one needs. Directly across the road is a coffee shop,come eating.open 24/7.."KRUZIN'S" I eat there on a few occasions,and would recommend it,very affordable,about $5 for breakfast ,and about $8 other meals,coffee $1 and they keep topping it up. Hey,Im hear to reccomend the Merit Inn,well if you dont mind not going posh,the Merit inn is the prefect place to stay. Internet connect,GREAT..No problems at all. The propriators are family people and really kind,and helpful. Oh one last thing,it says to pay for fridge in room and phone calls,well there is no charge for fridge and local calls are free. Hope you find this helpful Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The property is old. Don't pull up to it expecting luxury. But for a race weekend at Mid-Ohio, the value here really can't be beat. (I'm almost afraid to say so and give away a valuable secret!) The owners are extremely kind and friendly, and they addressed all of my concerns. There's an obvious pride of ownership here. The insides of the rooms haven't […] been updated in a long time, but everything was clean and we felt secure. The location was definitely convenient for our needs. We'll be happy to stay here again!

"Basic but seedy looking"
10/14/13 amyzengrace amman, jordan
Hotel looks rather rundown and seedy on exterior, but offers essential and basic services: clean room, a/c, decent tv, shower with hot running water. Also had mini-fridge and microwave in room. Comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff.
"just sleep in your car"
10/01/12 James F Mount Vernon, Ohio, United States
Horrible location. disgusting room. we found blood on our sheets. i would hate to see what that room looks like under a black light. there was a loose pit-bull in the parking lot killing rats and the owner of the place was feeding the thing. there was a strong chemical smell coming from a room down the hall which later turned out to be a man cooking meth who was arrested that day. also bring your own alarm clock there is not one in your room and if you ask for a wakeup call its a 2 dollar fee. outragous. if you have a family with you for the love of god don't bring them to the merit inn. your better off locking your windows and sleeping in you car
"Would highly recommend! Thanks! Will definitely be back when in town!"
08/27/11 Derek M Ashland, Ohio
The Merit Inn is a wonderful newly renovated family owned hotel. With a very friendly staff, clean rooms and facility made my stay from home a truly wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Also, the convenience store which had everything one needs when staying away from home was an added bonus. The Merit Inn is truly a “Home Away from Home.” Thank – You!
"Stay somewhere else"

Room was crappy, found body hair in the bed. Price was good. Within walking distance. Title of this review says it all.
"you get what you pay for"
07/05/10 treeshaker des moines
Nice location right downtown Mansfield. Small rooms, nice operator, but very noisy including fights in the parking lot late at night. They have permanent or weeklong guests and it is rougher around the edges than we normally choose. We had our bikes and were there for the B&O Richland County trail. Nice trail and "Fork and Fingers Mexican restaurant was good. We are both heavy sleepers and didn't have any problems but the Holiday Inn across the street looked pretty nice. $Less than $50.00 per night was the good part.
