Stayed with my sister after a wedding at the nearby MSU facility. Room small but nicely appointed. I was a little dismayed at the lack of upkeep in the facility. Hallways not vacuumed, mars on walls from carts or suitcases. very poor cement in the entry area, and, worst of all, inadequate trash can near back entry door so it... More

Large room with large kitchen area. The bathroom was very nice also. My only problem was the queen bed was against the wall which made it very hard for one of us to get of the bed! It's right next to MSU's golf course and the pool and restaurant are connected with MSU. The restaurant was closed during the time... More

Good extended-stay property very close to the MSU Pavilion. Room was clean with everything I would have needed in the kitchen if I was staying longer. Front desk staff was friendly and let us bring our bicycles up to our room.

If you are looking to save money and be on campus and not be close to anything, then you will like it. Average room with uncomfortable pillows. My TV remote did not work but they delivered a new one with instructions which was a little insulting. Very inexpensive. There is a restaurant at the adjoining club but not that easy... More

My wife and I stayed here after moving our daughter into Michigan State University. It's on the outskirts of the campus, near the agriculture area, which we found kind of nice...felt more quiet and rural, which is just what we needed after the hectic college check-in. Our suite was quite spacious with its own kitchen area and "living room." Will... More

Stayed here for a meeting that was held in the attached center. It is a clean hotel and my room was large with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom all separate. The staff was very helpful. The only issue I had with this hotel was with location. This hotel is far from anything. There is a bar and restaurant... More

Our room was comfortable and absolutely spotlessly clean. The decor was modern and sleek. The complete kitchen had all black appliances--even a dishwasher--that looked as if no one else had ever used them. Breakfast was not included. We did not use the restaurant, pool, or fitness center, which were in a separate building that was on the same property, but... More

The hotel was mostly good. The room was nice and comfortable and the parking was convenient. One thing to keep in mind, is that while the hotel is at MSU, it's the agriculture part of MSU, so you are not near restaurants or other amenities. If you want to be near farms or their executive MBA program, though, the location... More
