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 have been staying at this hotel for 5 years. This was the last time! The hotel had a fecal/sewer smell and we were given an air freshener but no solution to the problem. There was pink and black mold in the bathroom on the walls and mold on the plastic shower curtain (which I asked to be replaced but... More

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

I can’t stress how horrible this experience was for me. To start off with I only live about 1.5 hours away however I had a very important meeting for which I wanted to ensure I was well rested. I decided to come to East Lansing the night before for this specific purpose. I was checked into my room by Molly,... More

Very nice clean hotel. Everything in good working order. Room locks secure traveling alone and felt safe. I ended up with a second floor room as I checked in late so I needed to walk up steps to my room so if you have difficulty walking reserve a ground floor room ahead of time. There is a kitchenette fully appointed... More

We stayed at this hotel a few years ago and were extremely pleased. Now, the furniture is scratched up, there was no iron (but there was an ironing board), not enough serving ware for our family of four, and no log in the fireplace. There was one major problem - not enough hot water. One person, maybe two could get... More

We came up from my brothers wedding and stayed in a suite. We flew in from Texas so it was nice to spread everything out in the room. We paid about $80 a night and were told at check in that you needed to request housekeeping on the weekends for a tidy. When we travel we hardly ever need it,... More

Room was very large with a full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave and electric stove. Shower was nice but toilet didn't flush well. Took 3 flushes. Fireplace was useless. Told on check-in that there wasn't any wood. Fireplace allowed huge cold air drafts which caused heat to run constantly. Lots of space, dishes, wine glasses, coffee maker. That was nice.
