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

We were supposed to have a king size bed, but there was so much confusion at check in (new management, lost other people's reservations, they had to go somewhere else - lucky them!), we had a studio with a queen bed. The bathroom had not been cleaned, there was a used/dirty wash towel hanging from the shower rod, toilet was... More

Spacious. Amenities as an apartment- end of good items. Grounds are fair, parking is poor. Close to MSU why they charge so much. Rooms look neat but poorly kept up. Stained chairs. Dirty walls and doors. The pool was NOT maintained at all, in the middle of June...it is Was filthy and unsanitary. No care about even trying to clean... More

The room was covered in dog hair. The sheets were torn and dirty. Electrical outlets were broken with exposed wiring. The sink had no stopper. The toilet broke and backed up. Once we couldn't wait any longer for maintenance who never showed up to fix the toilet, we asked for our money back. Management said they were fully booked and... More

I spend a couple of days at this location last week. The room had everything from dishes to a dishwasher. All I had to do was bring in food and I was ready to rock. A full kitchen is important to me since I am on the road a lot and prefer to cook my own meals and save myself... More

One of our group members dounle-paid for the nights at Quality Inn. Catherine Morgan, at Gatehouse Suites promised she would reimburse us. It's been almost 5 months now and... More

Before you decide to give into their inflated $300-400 a night price for Commencement weekend, you should know the state of our hotel room this weekend, which is not worth the price we're paying now. My box spring on my bed is broken in half. Some of the outlets are hanging out of the wall exposing wires. Water is melting... More
