My family and I booked two rooms for our visit to see our son graduate from bootcamp. The staff members were very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. The rooms were comfortable and most importantly... super clean. I highly recommend staying here!

Nice Hotel is good location. Stayed here for Navy Boot Camp Graduation. Hotel has a shuttle bus to and from RTC Great Lakes for Graduation (Sign up at the desk on check in) Staff was fantastic. Was able to take care of us when our Graduate's departure plans from Great Lakes changed last minute so we could stay two extra nights. A number of decent restaurants within a short drive and a McDonalds right across the street. If wanting to use in the suite kitchen, an ALDI market is right across the street.

Stayed here for a concert at the Gennesee Theater. Nice big room. Clean and safe. Nice staff. Will stay again when in town. Decent pizza delivered from place that advertised in room on menu card.There is a Walmart across the street and a couple fast food restaurants across the street. You would need to drive there though it is a 4 lane busy road.

I was in the hotel for some weeks since I worked nearby. The hotel is located on 41, a busy street. But because how the hotel is built is not so loud, which is good. The hotel room or studio was clean, had a separate bedroom and a small kitchen, so from this perspective a typical hotel of this kind. The interior is old fashioned, and overall it shows that it was built sometime before. Nothing was not working or damaged, just older and used. They also had a washing room with washing machines and dryers, a coffee machine which offers free coffee and a little shop in the case you absolutly need something, and I thought it wasn't pricy either. A gym is also here and was functional but crowded with equipment, so a bigger room would be better. The biggest asset was the friendly staff; I liked the friendly atmosphere they have created.
