“Location & Value Good - Cleanliness Terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Staff was friendly, location was good. I did not expect a 5-star hotel experience after reading the reviews, but I did not expect what I discovered in my room. Used bar soap and shampoo still out, towels strewn about the room, blanket wadded up on the pull out couch and both rooms and the tow bathrooms were filthy. Hair all over the floors and beds, carpets not vacuumed properly. Did not try the free breakfast, could only imagine what the kitchen was like after being in the room.

WILL NOT stay again. I'll stay in Kalamazoo and drive the few extra miles if all hotels are booked in the Battle Creek area.
