The decor was old, needed an update. Entrance was difficult to find as the signage was small and there were 3 businesses as you turned into the drive. There was no one at the front desk at 3:00 (check in time) had to wait for her to fold a sheet. There was no one at front desk at check out... More

Impromptu stay here last night as we were driving and weren't sure how far we'd get, based on decent trip advisor reviews, price and location I selected it and was pleasantly surprised when the hotel was nicer than I expected, great service, and a great price. They have a free continental breakfast which was decent with bagels and toast, cereals,... More

After leaving we discovered some valuables were missing, couldn't find them in the car, and really looked hard. Called the motel and the... More

My family and I stayed here for one night as a little getaway. The room was clean and the breakfast is hot and tasty. It's quiet in this hotel which is nice. The pool was fun for the kids. The door to our room was a little tricky to open but the hotel let us know that before going up... More

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.
