We got in late, got the last rooms available, so there wasn't much room for change. Pros: Staff was very kind and accommodating. Beds were REALLY comfortable - the best we've had on our 4 week trip. Water pressure was great in the shower, and showers look very clean and new. Cons: Not the hotel's fault, we were put in... More

Supposed to be smoke free---Ha Ha. It was supposed to be handicapped room, which we paid extra for, but my wheelchair would never fit through the bathroom door or into the shower.... More

The pictures and the info about the hotel is misleading! The hotel looks like a Motel 6 but with a different name! The room was extremely small and had an odor in it! The room wasn't stocked with towels which I to walk in the rain to go get room! The only thing that was true was the bathroom which... More

I made the reservation about 8 pm from Grand Rapids by mobile because we had passed the motel several times before & I liked the outdoor décor. We got to the motel after driving in a raging blizzard in January about 11:45 pm. I had to stand in the freezing cold vestibule and was not allowed in to the lobby.... More

If I could rate this with a negative number, I would. Reservation was made through another site and was based on overall ratings and economy. Before the arrival of my travelling companion, checked in and looked over the room. Musty, odorous and shabby. The shower door was broken and immovable, rendering the shower useless. Lighting was horrible and lampshades were... More

I booked this hotel via hotwire.com that showed it as a 2.5 star along with Holiday Inn and Best Western. The name of the hotel was not listed in the representative list so I searched for it after I was misled into purchasing the deal. The online reviews were scary (shooting and violence at the hotel), nevertheless my wife and... More

This hotel is definitely lacking modern amenities. My room had a microwave and a refrigerator, but I was unable to have both plugged in at the same time. The sound on my TV was going, making it impossible to watch because the muffled noise was unbearable. I had to be careful when opening/closing the shower doors, I was worried they... More
