It is a little confusing when you do a search on your GPS but this hotel used to be a Best Western Hotel. They had signs advising of renovations in progress but I did not see any. My room was very clean. Pillows were fair and could be replaced. Breakfast was good. Seating area is ok. Front desk staff were... More

I could not believe that I paid 139 per night for a room that was dirty. There was hair all in the shower, even on top of the shower wall! The toilet paper holder was falling off the wall, the shower curtain rod was the same, so the curtain constantly fell into the middle, causing water to get everywhere in... More

There was black mold in the shower, tape on the shower head, and a terrible musty smell. Run for the hills! This place was disgusting. It was way over priced for what we got. Our soccer team was booked for a tournament and all greatly disappointed.

We arrived at this hotel to signs of "Pardon our dust - renovations in progress" and immediately cringed. This has happened to us in the past and it usually means the hotel is filthy. Not so here! This hotel was surprisingly very clean, quite comfortable, and located in a very nice area. The front desk staff was very helpful to... More

I've stayed at this location before when it was owned by another chain. Clarion just took it over a month or so before we stayed here. They had painted all the rooms so they are a little brighter and fresher. I think they've updated some of the furniture, not sure about that. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows... More

We have stayed at this hotel for 4 years and we will not be back. We requested a mini fridge which was an available amenity but my husband had to go and get ti bring to our room because it was only the young girl desk clerk in the whole hotel. Then while at the pool, which is nice there... More

I stopped at this hotel last night and ways impressed. The weather had turned bad so this was an unexpected stop and not a vacation. The rooms were clean and bright. Large screen TV. Staff was personable and polite. They even knew i the morning when I was leaving that 94west was backed up and helped me reroute! Last as... More

This is an older hotel, and it shows. Beds were comfortable, but rooms were dark and drab. Fitness center is a joke. Staff were helpful. Best part is location - very convenient just off I-94 highway, with restaurants nearby.

I have stayed at this hotel several times when visiting Kalamazoo. The staff has always been nice, the rooms clean and the breakfast decent. I have found this to be a comfortable room for the money. I visit Kalamazoo a fair amount, since my son lives in the area. I have tried other hotels in the area and found this... More
