I Pricelined a one night stay for a trip to visit MSU. The hotel is, still, undergoing renovations and the remodeling of the rooms on the first floor was evident but not bothersome. The front desk staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. We were given a studio suite on the 3rd floor and were SO pleasantly... More

From the outside the hotel isn't much to look at, the lobby is very plain and semi-unappealing. The room however was clean, quiet, very nicely decorated and spacious. The staff at check in and check out were pleasant, polite, and prompt (what more could I have asked of them). Sometimes it's just nice to be surprised... :-) Would recommend this... More

My mother and I stayed while visiting relatives in East Lansing...We enjoyed our stay, our room was super nice, we had plenty of room, I'm assuming ours was one of the newly done ones.

We were a little worried about staying here based on others' reviews but crossed our fingers for a remodeled room. We got one! We stayed in room 106. We were impressed with the spaciousness and decor of the suite. A separate bedroom with at least a full sized bed, we couldn't really tell if it was queen or not but... More

Once they upgrade their rooms this summer this will be a great hotel for families or for those staying for a longer time. The rooms have full kitchens which is really nice but unfortunately they are currently in terrible condition.

I dont know when I decided to be the one to rate all of these hotels on their internet connection and technical support but here we are again.

Very strange property. Its in the middle of nowhere but easy access to the highway. Front desk guy was nice. Young man who was courteous. But the rooms are worn. The forest green carpet stained. The smell of old carpet and grease lingered. The "kitchen" part looked out of the 70's. Couldn't be that old but so dated looking. Bath... More

Stayed for business(MI Horse Expo). Eric was very nice about letting us check in early. He gave us info on the area restaurants that delivered and a food delivery service.

Stayed here on personal business, surprisingly was a very clean hotel except for a few carpet stains on the rug in my room. Includes basic necessities and a pull out couch which was not very comfortable.
