I am a contractor bringing a crew up there from 75 mi away 9/08/2015 to start addressing some of these issues. We will be refurbishing the rooms, starting Tuesday. This is a large establishment and I have contracted... More

Half of this hotel is used as a halfway house for prisoners so not advised for the general public. It is very centrally located but probably the worst hotel in Grand Rapids. Rooms are dirty, there was a prostitute in the room next door and the hotel is literally falling down.

For starters, the night attendant put his hands on me. Very unprofessional and against the law. You don't touch strangers when you are talking to them. It escalated from there to problems with the Internet and ended with cold water when I tried to take a shower. I spoke to them. They refused to return my money. They twisted everything... More

We were visiting my in laws coming in from across the state. We stayed in a room with a King bed and a pullout couch. In the room there was a large fridge (big enough for a few days worth of food) and beautiful wood floors. My husband, daughter and I had a pleasant experience. We treated ourselves to the... More

We got a room here for this past weekend... Wish we would have never... When we checked in right away it was messy and looked as if it hardly got cleaned from the last guest. The toilet was clogged and had cigarette butts floating in it, would not flush unless the handle was held down until the flush was complete.... More

I have stayed in some real clunkers of hotels but this one takes the cake. I got two rooms and both rooms were messed up. One room the bed wasn't fully made and there were stains all over the sheets. The other room didn't have functional lights on one wall. I go to the front desk and ask if I... More

I spent the night here on Saturday if anyone is interested. Other then waking up to the cops arriving to break up a domestic dispute in the room next door at 3am, a man thinking I was a prostitute and trying to hire me (which I found slightly flattering, kind of like the little thrill I get when a bar...
