Went to enjoy myself at the lounge as I do with friends sometimes, and usually get a room after as it's not as bad as advertised. But this last Saturday night/Sunday morning, I had the life threatening experience of trying not to get shot over other drunk patrons. I decided to not even get a room as usual and debating... More

The only thing that is America's Best about this property is the best chance to become a crime statistic or pick up a communicable disease by staying here. The latest was a triple shooting in the hotel bar on Thanksgiving Nov 2014 weekend. If drugs, prostitution, theft violence and violence is your game this is the place for you. If... More

I accidentally bait & switched myself by researching the same chain in Birch Run and then booking in Saginaw. Do not, I REPEAT DO NOT STAY HERE...unless of course you're planning on filming a zombie or horror film. Dirty: once you get past the newly updated lobby, you're met with absolute filth. The dimly lit and smoke-smelling corredors guide you... More

Stayed here 2 nights. 1st night the hallway reeked of marijuana, woke up and went to the car and liquor bottles were all under our car. People arguing through out the night outside cause there is a lounge on the premises. Upstairs hallway was as cold as it was outside. Not one of the security doors lock.

I hope this hotel was in the middle of a remodel... (No signs saying excuse our mess though) The building itself was pretty rough.

this used to be a decent, low-cost hotel...its downfall is unfortunate. The breakfast they serve now is pathetic...plain bagels, toast, stale cereal, or a make-your-own waffle with fake syrup. The only juice is OJ that tastes like Tang, there is no liquid cream for the coffee, no hot chocolate, no Danish or donuts, only plain black tea. Half of the... More

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was dirty, smelled like mildew, and the rooms were horrible. The sheets were dirty there was hair in the sink and bathtub, the window had film on it from all the dirt. If there was a hotel any where in the vicinity that had a room I wouldn't have... More

Stairways smells of pee. Mold growing on the Windows on the walls. So many things are broken. Cigarette burns on the sheets. The shower in my room is falling apart. The a/c unit isn't getting cold. The tv the picture is messed up. Don't stay here. Spend a little bit more go somewhere else.
