Perfect place to stay after a long day of activities and driving during our road trip. The good reviews helped us pick this place and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and the hotel was nice and clean and had a Panera Bread right down the street for those of you who also slept through breakfast.

The staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with a refrigerator and coffee pot. The kids absolutely loved the evening ice cream hour! We enjoyed relaxing and swimming at the pretty pool in the evenings after a busy day. The breakfast area was kept clean and had a great variety of breakfast options for everyone... More

We recently stayed here we originally booked 7/13/15-7/21/15 . However I realized that we would be wanting to use the beaches more than originally intended the staff & General Manager George Sandona went way above and beyond to help us make our vacation as we had hoped for. First off the staff was truly friendly and welcoming. The hotel is... More

The hotel pool was clean, had towels available, and was open until 10:00PM. Breakfast is free and consists... More

Dear Kalamazoo, Thank you very much for staying with us! You made a good choice with the presidential suite - everyone had the opportunity to sleep late and the early riser could move around at his leisure. We enjoyed having you stay with us and look forward to your next trip. Happy Travels! George Sandona, General Manager More

Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Staff were very friendly and took care of our needs. Loved the ice cream hour for the kids. The only problem I had with this hotel is the suites are not large. It was a little difficult having play time with small children.
