Staybridge Suites in Stow Ohio Review for Families with Children

Staybridge Suites in Stow Ohio Review

If you’re looking for a spacious family suite in the suburbs of Akron, we’ve found your match.  The Staybridge Suites in Stow Ohio review discusses the suite, amenities, and complimentary meals.

Every Staybridge Suites that I’ve stayed at provides snacks, drinks, and plenty of amenities.  The entire space has an upscale home away from home vibe- it feels less like an extended stay motel and more like an apartment.

The Staybridge Suites Stow has a fitness room, pool, hot tub, and a small store with (very pricey!) non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.

If you’re looking for a restaurant on the hotel grounds itself, you’ll be disappointed.  There is no on-property sit-down restaurant or room service here.  However, you can head down the road and pick up some burgers and hot dogs and grill in the area outside.

Options like grilling and an in-room kitchen are ideal for us, as with our son’s autism, we often avoid sit down restaurants.  We love stocking familiar foods in our fridge and prepare them in the room.  Our family usually ends the day with swimming, which is an excellent sensory activity for our whole family.

While the decor is mainly brown tones, the design is fresh and in good condition.  The lobby feels welcoming, and the staff is friendly.

The Staybridge Suites in Stow Ohio is a valuable hotel for larger families looking to stay in one suite together.  We have found that it is excellent for families of children with autism or sensory needs.  It also is appropriate for those traveling for business and looking for a full kitchen.

Staybridge Suites One Bedroom Suite (with King bed)

There are several types of suites: studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedroom suites.  They come in configurations with two beds or one king bed.

When you walk into the suite, the kitchen is immediately visible.  The kitchen comes with a full-size refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, and dishwasher.  There are pyrex containers, large utensils, silverware, plates, bowls, and cups.

Across the way is a large desk with room to spread out your work.  I love Staybridge Suites when I need to work.  There is plenty of room for a laptop, and the Wi-Fi connection is decent and free.Staybridge Suites Stow Ohio Review Desk

The living area features a sofa that turns into a double bed and oversized television.  There is plenty of additional seating.  I often drag one of the living room lamps over to the desk for lighting.  Unfortunately, the rooms lack a view- the windows look out over the parking lot.Staybridge Suites in Stow Ohio review sofa bed, living room, television, tv

The sleeping quarters are separated from the living room with double doors and feature a spacious king bed.  However, there is no  privacy from children (or in-laws) on the sofa.  Unfortunately, the bathroom is located directly off of the bedroom.  If you’d prefer to avoid walking through the bedroom to use a restroom, I would suggest getting a two-bedroom suite.Staybridge Suites in Stow Ohio review king bed, king suite, one bedroom

The bathroom features a tub with a showerhead that is perfect for families with small children.  There is always plenty of towels.  For our family of six, this is indispensable!

Outside the bathroom, you will find a one-person sink.  Allowing a grown-up to shower in a locked bathroom is excellent for a large family bustling around and getting ready in the morning.

The Staybridge Suites is a hotel that is the perfect, little home away from home.  We have stayed here multiple times and always encountered friendly staff at check-in.  You can choose between a studio, one or two-bedrooms.  The one-bedroom (with king bed) is the suite featured in this article.

Staybridge Suites Amenities

Whether you have a picky child or kiddo with special needs like autism, we love the convenience of having a variety of food choices.  Staybridge Suites provides tons of amenities, wrapped up into the cost of each night’s stay.

We have always found the evening appetizers to be relaxing.  Unfortunately, the reception is only available on weekdays, and the food varies each day.  Many of the appetizer options can double as dinner.  In the past, we have enjoyed baked potato bar, salad bar, and chili.  They also offer a few bottles of wine or a couple of domestic draft beers, depending on the time that you go.

Each morning brings a breakfast feast.  There are four different kinds of cereal with milk.  Also, there is a continental bar with yogurt, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, and cottage cheese.  Finally, if you’re looking for hot entrées, the Staybridge Suites provides a variety of breakfast items.  There are two hot entrées in chafing dishes: egg, bacon or sausage, breakfast burritos.  If you’re into gluten, there is a waffle maker, toast, and bagels, oatmeal with toppings.  As if that is not enough, we enjoyed coffee, juice, soda.

Unfortunately, the pool was shockingly cold.  However, there is also a large hot tub. The fitness center has enough cardio machines and weights to squeeze in a workout.

We always enjoy our stay at the Staybridge Suites in Stow, Ohio.  It is relatively close to Akron City hospital, the University of Akron,  family-friendly vineyards, Blossom Music Center, and Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
