This was a Helmsley Hotel back in the 80's when I stayed there many days of several weeks, when I had business in Lansing working for GM. It was immaculate turn down service and chocolate on the pillow kind of place. It had in Indoor Olympic size pool which connected with pull back patio glass doors, to an outdoor pool... More

Limited air, no control for Fan (High Low Medium). You can only select your desired temperature, however, it doesn't appear to be working. The wall has something gross all over it in various places (huge boogers?) The bathroom celing is stripping, it needs to be stripped and repainted. 1 star if it needs to be rated. Stay elsewhere. Front desk... More

Waterford Estates is in urgent need for general maintenance as well as substantial renovation. The lack of exterior maintenance creates an uncomfortable, unclean, and, in my opinion, unsafe environment. Following is a summary of Waterford Estates Lodge Room #222 : Hotel Attributes Welcome letter apologizing for inconvenience caused by “pre-renovation state of the hotel”. Bed with comfortable mattress but thin... More

No working Internet. No working Cable TV because of some kind of dispute with the local cable TV company. (My guess is they did not pay their bill looking at the condition of the motel) No Towels in my room. I am sure the sheets had not been changed on the bed after I had to strip them to use... More

This is a very nice place. We attended an adult-themed event at the Waterford Estates Lodge and were very pleased. The rooms were clean and well-appointed... just as nice as any major hotel chain but with a lot more individual charm. The restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. Very friendly and professional staff- I think it was their first... More

While this hotel is not the newest or fanciest hotel, it still has a lot of charm and a comfortableness about it that makes you feel at home. The staff were all very nice and professional and made sure we had everything we needed and continually asked if they could do anything more for us. They seemed to really want... More

I stayed recently at the Waterford Estates Lodge in Lansing, Michigan as a part of a group of 17 women coming from around the state for a "night out" for a bride-to-be. It was suggested by a friend as a good place for us to stay for a group our size that wouldn't be too expensive. We used five rooms... More
