“Lovely room, front desk staff, and breakfast. Spotty housekeeping.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Recently stayed four nights to attend a conference at Western Michigan University. Hotel conveniently located near campus, grocery store across the street. Front desk staff could not have been nicer. Room itself well-appointed; bed comfortable. First night left a two dollar tip and a request for more towels. Tip gone, no towels appeared. Trash can never emptied over a four day stay. Beds only made once.

Thank you for sharing your experiance at our Hotel, I am sorry the housekeeping was less than you expected. As an "Extended Stay Hotel" we normally do not give housekeeping over the weekends unless requested at check-in. Our rooms have this information posted in the bathrooms and had we been aware, we gladly would have given housekeeping services everyday. If you attend the Conference next May, or anytime you come to Kalamazoo, please let the desk know when you arrive so we can accomodate you.

We booked through AARP, which was processed via Expedia, and our priority points were not honored because the hotel/Staybridge Suites will not by policy honor 3rd party bookings. We found this out at check-in and it made me livid; however, the frontdesk representative was professional during his explanation and tried very hard to ease what was, for me, an upsetting and disappointing situation. He honored our request for the top floor in the most quiet area, and we slept soundly; recuperating from bronchitis, this was important. The brunch was delicious, too. This hotel is immaculate, safe and pleasant--and it is not such a far drive downtown to visit the fabulous restaurants and brewery (Bells), nor is it far from major transportation routes.

Room Tip: Quiet Location for us: Room 326

I have been a frequent stayer of Staybridge in different cities as a priority club gold member. While this facility is good being relatively newly built, the staff girl in front desk was the most unpleasant person I ever encountered throughout any hotel or lodging facility. I felt like I am asking for a favor of stay, even though I made reservation. Additinally, as I did not want to stay in first floor, I requested upper floor room. The answer was 'not avaialable' outright. On my subsequent question on when it will be available, suddenly 3rd floor room was given. No explanation, no further talk, giving me the impressin of jsut go away. I was almost felt insulted.

Oh, by the way, not surprisingly, no recognitiion of priority club gold member, different from other Staybridges. I did not even felt asking, for fear of more awkward encounter.

First and foremost I want to sincerely apologize for your experience with the front desk associate who was assisting you at check in as the experience that you describe is not the experience that we train and strive to provide to our guests. I can assure you that your valued feedback will be brought to our staffs attention and will serve as a challenge to all of our front desk associates to sharpen and improve their customer service skills. Again I apologize that your check in experience left you feeling as though you were not appreciated and welcomed at our facility but please know that you are a valued guest and we do appreciate you. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future and allow us the opportunity to prove that this facility and the staff working here appreciate your business and your loyalty to our brands.

Great service! Clean and quiet. Good breakfast (hot foods including a meat, eggs, waffles). The pool is nice and loved the hot tub. There is a lovely outdoor area for warmer weather days with grills you can use. Economical, good location - will stay here from now on when we visit.

Room Tip: Has shop for snacks etc but recommend gas station or grocery store for supplies.

This was our first stay here after many visits to Kalamazoo. We loved it. We had a one bedroom suite for our visit with our 2 grandchildren. Plenty of space (could have used one more closet). Kitchen just right for our needs. Beds comfortable. Quiet, did not hear other guest on either side. Rooms very dark when curtains closed. Breakfast had a large variety of hot and cold food. Swimming pool and court yard nice place to burn energy. Hotel staff very friendly. Hotel very clean. Will stay again when we visit.

I always like staying here because it is just like a small apartment with room to roam. The cooling/heating is quiet. The rooms are clean. The lighting is well done. Was not able to do breakfast but used the pantry for a few items in the evening. Good location, closest to WMU.
