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

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

I have stayed at Magnuson of Lansing and found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. My room had everything I needed for a pleasant stay in the Lansing area. The price was very reasonable and I will plan another visit. The surrounding area has many good restaurants to try!

well it was the lowest price i could find but breakfast with bums and sharing the elevator with hookers was not what i had in mind. If i didn't have my kids with me it would have been ok and kind of funny. Then there was the individual in the room next to me that played his porn loud enough... More

My husband stayed there last night. It was the most disgusting hotel we have ever stayed in. I have lost my faith in Expedia. I can't believe they would have this place on their list of hotels. The room reeked of smoke. (non smoking room) The carpet in hall and room were so dirty we did not want to remove... More
