The manager and staff here are very accommodating for special requests such as room in a quiet location (when available). The king room was very comfortable, very nice to put up one's feet on a nice soft chair at the end of a long day. Will stay again!

We attempted to book a block of rooms for an upcoming wedding. Our weekend is very busy, and it was difficult to find rooms. The Comfort Inn nearby was very accommodating, but they did not have enough rooms, so we had to split between two hotels. The booking manager (named Joseph) was very pushy on the phone with me and...

Stayed here for one night due to a hockey tournament. I will not return or recommend it to others. The staff is rude and NOT focused on the customer. The only exception was the breakfast hostess who was extra pleasant. The room was very outdated and was not clean. There were numerous stains. The sofa sleeper was disgusting. The sleeper... More

We come to Michigan to see family and every year we eventually realize that we are better off staying away from rather than with family.

No big surprises either way during our two night stay. Our king bed room had a love seat and fridge, a nice plus (not sure if that is an "upgraded" room...). Bedroom and bathroom were clean. My only critical room comment is the clothes hanger in the corner with no closet. Not a big deal, works just fine, but it... More
