This place is located at exit 73 off of I-96; about 15 miles west of Lansing. It was clean, updated, and quite. Everything I look for on business travel. The beds were comfy, the shower has pressure, the pool and hot tub are nice. It also has a river walk path right off the back of the property. All of... More

Stinks of smokers residue. Security chain had been ripped from its mount and reattached (loosely) with one drywall screw. Dead and dying bugs (roly polys and beetles) in the bathroom. Rock hard beds. Very happy to leave after one night. Not nightmarish but definitely substandard.

When we brought our group here (7 rooms) for an East Lansing convention in March of 2014, the hotel ran out of bath towels and told us we could "check back" in the morning to see if there were any available for our early morning showering. At least 3 rooms of our people had to share TOWELS with roommates in... More

When this hotel was first built it was amazing, but that's when it was first built there has not been much updating since. The hot tube and pool are really nice and the staff is always happy to accommodate us. The hotel and rooms just need some work.

Breakfast is on par with most franchise.The overall experience with hotel was very satisfying. I can honestly say this is one of the hotels where I sleep best. I frequent the area for... More

We were kind of limited on our choices. Had to attend a funeral in Ionia so I searched for a hotel and found this one. We should have just driven a little further to west Lansing and found some place. This place was a circus. I made reservations for our entire family (4 rooms) and the staff checked us in... More

Stayed here while on business. Convenient between Lansing and Grand Rapids. Location right off highway. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is clean. Price is very reasonable. Rooms have nice comfortable beds, they have a breakfast in the morning too

After looking at the local options for temporary lodging in Ionia this place was not only the cleanest they were more than willing to negotiate a rate I could afford for a few weeks so I felt safe. I really wanted to stay here and was happy they worked with me on the rates. I had expressed my concerns on... More
