This place was a great location to be able to walk to the Michigan State campus however I would rate it as just average. We paid about $200 a night and no housekeeping was done. I guess I usually just expect that especially when paying that amount.

My wife and I needed to be in East Lansing in early October for a last minute family matter and unfortunately it coincided with a MSU home football game. All our usual hotels were booked (at the more reliable brand hotels) and we were left with having to book a "penthouse suite" for $360 per night on the weekend. Let... More

Booked three rooms for football weekend. Our tv didn't work, WIFI didn't work, no housekeeping on weekends. Had coffee one morning but since no one comes to clean, had to go to office for coffee. Tracked in leaves from trees all around, so rooms all had leaves all over the floors and not even a broom to sweep them up.... More

I stayed in what looked to be a great room. Come to find out the box spring was broken and the staff new about it. They told us they would replace it in the morning and took us until we went and complained again to receive it. When they came to fix it we realized the mattress was completely soiled... More

We stayed in the Penthouse 2, I was amazed by how much room there was. We really appreciated that the kids had their own bedroom, and bathroom on an entirely different floor. Staff was very friendly and helpful, room was clean, pretty landscaping and view of the river. Great location, 1/2 mile from the East dorms at Michigan State. Some... More

My partner and I stayed here as we were moving him into East Lansing for a new job. It was a great place to land -- not fancy, and could use a little buffing (and the landscaping could use some attention, but the staff was very helpful. Walking distance from a number of restaurants and pubs, and very convenient to... More

The suite was awesome - everything we needed and having the extra room to move around in was great. Bed was good - on the firm side for sure. Room smelled good, was clean and updated. We were there the Thurs/Fri nights leading up to MSU fall move in. The hotel was quiet and the staff was very nice. House... More

The property is a mess. Trash and debri every where. The first room we were checked into, smelled like mold and mildew. The second room wasn't much better but we had no where else to go because all rooms in the area were booked for the fall move in at MSU. The house keeping staff doesn't work on Sunday so... More

This was basically a former Residence Inn not far from the Michigan State University campus. It was not bad for the money and clean. It was basically a suite type room typical of a Residence Inn. This was during the summer so it was not particular basis except for some foreign student who appeared to be visiting the campus. The... More
