A friend and I spent a Friday night here and it was better than we expected. Everything was clean and in working order. We had a room with two double beds, which each had their own area separated by the bathroom. The room also included a mini fridge, microwave, and second sink in the kitchenette area. The morning breakfast was... More

I have already reserved for my extended stay coming up this spring. Super friendly and accommodating front desk and manager. Nice clean rooms with nice sized area for micro/fridge/coffee, and small sink between the little living room area and the bedroom. Very nice clean bathrooms with lots of fluffy towels, shampoo, and other toiletries. Living room area has loveseat sofa... More

My wife and I do not normally stay at this type of lodging but based on reviews and pricing we decided to take a risk and go for it. Our check in was straight forward. When entering our room, we discovered that we had been given an upgrade to a suite without asking! Even though you could tell that there... More

We stayed at this hotel because we had an early flight from Grand Rapids and they had a reasonable rate that included free parking and a shuttle to the GR airport. We had 2 queen beds, each in their own area with a bathroom between them. There was also a microwave and a small refrigerator. The shuttle operates any time... More

We needed a reasonably priced hotel for a quick visit to Grand Rapids. We arrived to find a clean hotel that accepts pets. Our room had two rooms separated by an area that held a small refrigerator and microwave. Each room has a television and a queen bed. The decor is a little dated. Breakfast was the usual fare of...

This is a pretty nice hotel for the average traveler. We are not however the average traveler. Due to my wife's stroke, the most important requirement for a motel room is a roll in shower...that is a shower which does not require a step up and into a tub. We booked through the Choice Hotels web site and they advertised... More

My wife and I stayed at this property on the 19th of Oct for one night. We booked on Priceline and got a good price. The property was clean and inviting inside and out. The check in process was simple and quick. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a two room suite with TV's in both rooms... More

Room smells strongly of smoke. Sheets and curtains are stained. TV does not work. Afraid of what the continental breakfast may be :-( They do seem to be in the midst of remodeling. Wifi works. There are 2 Tvs in room, one for each bed area, but only one works. There is a large rusty stain on the curtains and... More

As a budget minded traveler when not on vacation, I have stayed at quite a few Econo Lodge's in several different states and this one is BY FAR the best one I have been to. I think that perhaps this used to be an Embassy Suites or something? The rate was low though, in line with the other Econo Lodge... More
