“pleasantly surprised!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

happy with service, room size. Desk clerk at 3: 30 am check-in not familiar with reward usage, thought had to charge me. Resolved it. No problems with other clerks, in fact, very helpful. Attendees at breakfast service very attentive. Selections average.

Great location for MSU events. The rooms are a bit tired, but certainly do the job for the amount of time you are in them. The shower needs some upgrades, but other than that, our stay was great.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I am usually reluctant to book rooms at Howard John hotels due to several disappointing experiences. This hotel however, surprised me. The room was very clean with enough work room for me and my computer. The bathroom was very small but I got through it okay. My room was on the first floor adjacent to a really nice indoor pool with lots of open area around it for large groups to gather for business meetings, parties, etc. The morning breakfast was so-so. Michigan State University is only minutes away from this location. The hotel is easy to find off I496 & Trowbridge Road. I'll stay here again if I return to the Lansing area.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms around the pool are convenient to access. However, weekends might be noisy with kid...

Well I was unable to get into my room and had to go to the lobby twice to get into it and they had to use a key to get in as non of the cards would work. I was informed that they had to get the maintenance guy over to change the lock. This was around 4:00. When we came back from dinner around 10:00 the lock had still not been replaced and we were again not able to get into our room. It was a good thing we had friends in another room to use their restroom as we tailgated in the parking lot. The manager stated she would take care of us at check out for the inconvenience. When I went to check out the check out clerk said she would not check me out and the manager was not in and wanted me to leave t my name, Phone number and room number for her to call me. I never received a phone call and I checked my credit card and saw I was billed $168.00 inwhich my room charge was suppose to be $144.00 so I'm not sure what else I was charged for let alone not even getting a bit of a discount for my inconcenience PLUS not even a getting a phone call from the manager. I am a very unhappy customer as the manager first of all never even called me. This is not GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The mangers name is Stacey.

Pictures on website are not what you will find at this hotel. It is a very run down hotel in a bad neighborhood. Stay as far away as possible! Rooms were dirty, beds were marshmallows and a train comes by about every ten minutes.

So sorry we stayed here. Old, crappy depressing rooms furniture looked like old college rejects did not seem like a safe area. . Breakfast was the worst. They had one, two slice toaster for the whole hotel. Very over priced.
