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

Worst hotel I ever stayed at. Absolutely incredibly dirty and smelly. Super uncomfortable with the whole area. Do not stay here unless it is an absolute necessity. 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.

Actually, myself & my 3 children visited this hotel in Feb 2013. At the time we were homeless. After paying for the room & then actually seeing the room, I chose to sleep in my vehicle with my children in Michigan during the month of Feb. This should speak volumes about this hotel. The list is much too long to... More

What a disappointment, dirty and in disrepair just about everywhere you look. Smell of cigarettes was pervasive. I looked at the room before taking my family in because the outside appearance warranted investigation; coolers on the ledges visible from the highway, my family never saw the inside. We never returned and lost the 62 dollars we were charged with our... More

The housekeepers were wonderful & staff answered any questions I had about restaurants & entertainment. Thank you so much for a... More
