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. In 2014 it seems like internet fast enough to load nbcnews.com would be pretty standard. However it turns out thats not the case. A lot of the hotels appear to go SUPER... More

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. Was very disappointed that the "comp" item in the morning was coffee. There are no near by restaurants to go breakfast, short of the four star restaurant($$$$) that is connected... More

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. One of the main reasons I decided to stay here was how close this hotel is to Michigan State's campus, made my stay very... More

I found this to be a very pleasant place to stay. I had business with the Michigan Chamber of Commerce (about four miles away) and liked the quiet location and nicely-appointed small suite. Mine had a double bed and an easy chair as well as a desk. It also had a full-size fridge, two burners, and a microwave. I didn't... More

Not a swanky hotel but it was quite good! I was welcomed by a very friendly staff member. My check in was smooth and easy. My room was similar to a small studio w/ stove, fridge, and cabinets included. Very clean and quiet. Great scenery (golf course view). Minuets away from MSU.
