Our group was all checked into the wrong rooms. Once we got that fixed it was pretty good. Breakfast could've been a lot better considering it was a hot breakfast. Staff were great after everything was figured out with the rooms.

We had a great stay. We're surprised at all the negative comments. We were in Kalamazoo because of a funeral. The employee Megan, who checked us in, was courteous, kind, and personable. The rooms were standard, clean, with comfortable beds and pillows. The swimming pool was heated and large, which the kids loved. The hot tub was large and wonderful.... More

Checked in 2 days ago for the week. The hotel is under construction and that's fine. The staff appears to be under construction as well, not cool! Never pay in advance again for the entire week! This is what's coming out of the sink. Wow, my towels are stained! No refund, they just blamed it on the city.

Stayed for two days. At check-in, no staff member in sight. Waited several minutes and considered using the hotel phone to call the front desk! Room was beautiful until we sat in the bathroom and noticed the black mold in the shower...eew! Management is currently renovating the front area, so breakfast service was moved to an upstairs conference room. No... More

For reasons I couldn't begin to guess, Priceline included in this hotel in its 2 1/2 star listings. As you know, when you booked through Priceline, you do not get to choose the place you stay. This hotel is rated at 2 1/2 stars, which is two stars too many. It's dirty everywhere. The breakfast area is laughable to the... More

We stayed here one night as we were passing through town and after reading other reviews were unsure of how it was going to be. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The room (while in need of updates-had peeling wallpaper, etc) was clean and the bed was comfortable. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, breakfast was hot (though... More

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
