I was here with some friends after we were driving home and got stranded because of a rainstorm. This was the only place in town that had a room available. We walked in and it was very outdated, but we figured we could deal with that. When we went to bed we found a blood stain on the comforter, a... More

You use to be able to park here for 5.00 per day, although it's still advertised as such when we arrived on a tight schedule it's now $7.00 per day. The hilton one block away is $4.99 a day so I suggest you go there, the manager didn't honor the advertised price she claimed it's her new summer rates. No... More

We stayed 5/24/14. The room was clean (no bedbugs) and the staff was very personable. The room had a large patch on the ceiling from a previous water leak. The ceiling above the shower in the bathroom was aweful. The sofa cushion had a hole in it, so I ashed my husband to flip it over. The other side of... More

This is by far the worse hotel stay I have ever had in my entire life. Considering I stay in hotels on average 90 days out of the year for work and have stayed in hotels all across the World that is saying something. When I come to Grand Rapids I usually stay at the Hilton. Unforgettably this weekend due... More

My husband and I were very pleased with this hotel overall. The bed was comfortable (especially the pillows...I wanted to sneak one into my suitcase :) ). The audio on the TV seemed a bit off...seemed like it would occasionally get loud. We got a room with a jacuzzi tub and it was perfect except for the drain. The knob... More

We arrived late from a full day of travel, and they allowed us to take a late check-out the following day, so that we would be able to get some rest. Every staff member we came in contact with was friendly and helpful!

The location is great! There are a ton of restaurants very close to choose from. The rooms are clean. Beds are comfortable. The only complaint I really have is the front desk staff could have been a little bit more friendly. Other then that, it was a nice stay.

Our room had a toilet which needed the flapper control replaced since it falls off the drain allowing water to escape and the toilet to run. The shower had a curtain and curved rod which was not firmly attached to the wall so the curtain kept "falling' to the center because the curved rod sloped down! the wash cloth "rod"... More

I have stayed at this location several times when in town working. Since I travel alone, having a place to stay where I feel safe is very important. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It was great to have a free "hot" breakfast every morning and dinner during the week and fresh coffee or tea 24/7. It is... More
