Very quite unique hotel. Everything was perfect except there should be an interior hallway connecting exterior rooms to the pool. Otherwise all was very good.

Stayed at this hotel when attending a conference at MSU. The hotel was very out of date and service wasn't great. The worst part is when I woke up with several bug bites on my arms and face.
