3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The bed and pillows were quite comfortable, which was a pleasant surprise. The bathroom needs updating. The shower and curtain looked like it was from the 1970's. The location is a few minutes away from downtown Grand Rapids and its attractions. We did not eat at the restaurant but we did enjoy the bar/lounge.

Decent sized indoor pool. Staff seemed to be wanting to please the customer. Hot tub and sauna were nice. Our room was nice. It has an adjustable firmness bed, refrigerator, flat screen TV and microwave. The downfall was that there was no free breakfast and there were a couple hairs in our bathtub and towel when we got there. The... More

I stayed at this hotel with a group. I booked separately using my AAA xard. So glad I did. The rest of our group paid more and had a worse experience. My nonsmoking room smelled like cigarettes. The remote on the sleep number bed didn't work, leaving me with a rock yo sleep on. The Free wifi was nonexistent. I... More

We had to stay here as a last-minute stay and the price was ridiculously high for the quality. We paid $180 + $50 incidental fees that are billed immediately and refunded later. Our room had a very dysfunctional AC unit. It cooled our room to about 75 degrees which was tolerable but you'd expect more from a hotel in this... More

This hotel is most definitely a bottom of the list hotels. Very, very old, dated, doubt if has ever been upgraded or at least not in last 25-30 years. Any hotel at the most common going rate of ~$125+ should be updated at a minimum. And we were with a team/group rate of $135+ taxes. A complete rip-off. I can... More

This hotel has a lot of little perks that make it special. For example, when we checked in, there were chocolate chip cookies at the front desk. There is also a free shuttle for hotel guests to downtown Grand Rapids which runs every couple of hours. There is a small arcade with a few video games, a free comedy show... More

Fun hotel, the room was clean and the view is awesome! I rarely get the chance to stay at a hotel so this was a treat. Great thanks to the staff for helping me out! The live band in the bar was a lot of fun too. The building is old and could use a little renovation but I like... More

Although this hotel may be a little older than some others in the area, it is very clean and well kept. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and its $5 uber ride from downtown. The rooms are clean with their own fridge and also come with a very comfortable Sleep Comfort mattress with adjustable settings. Would definitely... More
