This shady hotel may be centrally located. but it is very shady. Dirty, people constantly coming and going, dirty, no amenities and most importantly BED BUGS. I was immediately bitten up! This place should be shut down for sure.

Do yourself a favor and avoid this hotel. It is disgusting, and the rooms smell like stale cigarette smoke from the 1970s. Our bathroom door looked as if it had been punched and it clearly was never replaced. The mattresses equate to the comfort of a cardboard box, and the sheets are rough. The "continental breakfast" included white toast and... More

We were looking for an inexpensive room for an overnight stay before a MSU football game. This room was filthy, smelly, and a health hazard. Visible mold on the heating/air unit. The carpet was filthy and stained. Mattresses were ancient and sheets so thin you could see through the material. Next time I will pay the outrageous rates that were... More

Dirty , smelly , hairs everywhere , stains on tub and carpet , cigarette burns and ashes on carpet and sheets. No breakfast after we were promised one. Poor water pressure. No interest in hearing our... More

I stayed here for one night in June; and of course, the photos on the internet makes this place look great! When I arrived, the lobby of the motel was so stuffy and the a/c wasn't working that well. I should've taken this a hint and ran far away!!! Instead, I continued on with getting the room. After receiving the... More

We have stayed at a few motels in the Lansing area over the last several years when we visit our son who attends Michigan State University. We like this one the best and in fact have spent several weeks here. What we like best: - Inexpensive - Within walking distance of Meijer's superstore - like a super Walmart, only nicer,... More
