We stayed at the Ramada on Saginaw Highway last night and had to cut that stay short. It was terrible. We caught a deal on hotwire.com for the Holiday Inn Express and couldn't check out of the Ramada fast enough. The HIE is clean. The front desk was very pleasant, and check in was super fast! Our room exceeded our... More

Enjoyed every aspect of the stay except it was too short. Check in was easy. Room was very nice and spacious. Definitely enjoyed the suite. Breakfast was great and the breakfast attendant even offered us a "to-go" bag! Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

I have been staying at a few Holiday Inn and this one has been the best so far. The beds were really comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the quality of the clientele staying in this hotel was excellent. All in all an excellent hotel to spend the weekend in

The average: Reservations were made on line using points for partial payment. Upon check in, I was charged the standard rate, apparently the on line check in did not work....I will check with HIE to... More

We stayed just one night 2 rooms, the window shades we poor, and the person who parked in front of our room kept the headlights on too long twice. Pool was great, breakfast was also very nice. The pillows were so fluffy they could suffocate you; this was the only negative...

Very Typical HI Express. Has been recently updated- mattresses are very comfortable. Breakfast had a nice selection better than others I have stayed in. Very clean and a very nice front desk staff. Warning- there is no elevator at this hotel. Also, they do not implement a sound policy. Extremely loud with children running, slamming doors, yelling and playing soccer... More

I travel back to this area often, this is the first time I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is right off the highway. It's a little ways from MSU campus. From the outside of the building it looks like it's an older hotel. I was a little concerned how clean the place would be. To my surprise,... More

The Holiday Inn Express Lansing-Okemos offers spacious and clean rooms, an indoor pool and a complimentary breakfast. WLan is free but rather slow. I can recommend this hotel if you are travelling with a car.

Just stayed here for 5 nights for business. Hotel is located a bit off of the main road so it is hard to see. My best compliment is their cleaning crew. The bathroom/shower sparkled every day. A great shine on everything. The facilities are not brand new either so great attention to detail in cleaning, in the bathroom and out.... More
