This hotel was clean, affordable and had nice suites. Kitchenettes were nice, but I didn't use it because I was just there one night. The check in person was very nice. It took some time to figure out the TV, which required some jury-rigging. But for the price, I lived with it.

We had a Very enjoyable stay. It was very clean, quiet and very spacious accommodations, much like a small apartment. We would definitely stay there again and we highly recommend this place. People were very accommodating.

We were in E Lansing for the MSU School of Law graduation. Our reservations were changed due to maintenance problems and there our adventure begins. We reserved three rooms but when we checked in we only had one studio available. AJ at the front desk tried to help by calling the manager about another room and another person who may... More

We stayed for only one night while we were visiting Michigan State. It was pretty grungy - nothing seemed very clean. Hotel room layout was good with a little kitchen, but we didn't need that. Worst part is that they have a nonsecure wifi and I stupidly left my computer on all night, connected to it. Woke up in the... More

I arrived and the lobby was empy. After waiting an hour in a empty hotel lobby I got in my car and called Expedia to attempt to get a refund. To move me to another hotel Expedia had to call the hotel to verify that there was no answer. At this time the staff returned and I went into the... More

Place was dirty and grungy, lobby has a security lock door like a bank teller, sure sign you are in a bad area, never again. The bathroom floor looked like it had not been cleaned in a year, no thanks

I've stayed at the Gatehouse Suites numerous times throughout the years. The suites are apartment-style, with full kitchen and big bedrooms. The rooms have always been clean, and it is in a very quiet area of East Lansing--however, it has close access to many restaurants, the interstate, and main campus. Plenty of safe and well-lit parking. The hotel staff are... More

Lights that don't work, broken shower curtain, and dirty bathroom floors, we're the highlights of our stay. And the lobby was so dirty that we dared not eat the free continental breakfast. The place is over all falling apart. Save yoursel the stress and stay somewhere else.

We stayed here a little out of nostalgia. It is next door to our old apartment complex, and we have stayed here during other visits to E. Lansing in the past. We were visiting MSU with our high school kids who are checking out the school, so we wanted something close to campus. It is quite near-by for people looking... More
