don't stay here. I was desperate for a hotel with 2 available rooms for the night of September 12th after the MSU v Oregon football game. We booked this for two nights, two rooms since my nephew was coming in from Portland, OR also. This place is strange. The people who showed us to our room - one looked like... More

I overheard the desk clerk tell someone there were no vacancies. Rather suspicious people standing around outside. Key system was not working. Clerk had to let us in our room, so... More

People living in the... More

My boyfriend and I checked in and stayed less than an hour. The halls reeked of smoke. Suspicious characters and vehicles were lurking around and outside the hotel. Once inside, the check-in desk attendants seemed like they didn't know what end was up. Once we got up to our floor, we heard strange noises from several rooms, and a dog... More

We arrived too late and were only staying a short time since we had to be up early in the morning. Bed was dirty, the room smelled, wouldn't even touch the fridge, bathroom... More

Don't let the price attract you to stay at this HORRIBLE, HORRIFIC PLACE. I had to stay there with my husband for 3 days at first (time for him to find an apartment near East Lansing). The last day we decided it was better to go to another hotel and to lose our money (we had an online reservation). The... More

This hotel was nice and the staff was very friendly the rooms were nice and the bed was very comfortable and the service was fast there was a lot of restaurants around and a gas station and a grocery store right next door which is reliable. The staff is respectful and always there when you need them.
