We were there for a one night stay last weekend. The hotel itself was a challenge to find in the evening. The main road and the intersection leading up to the hotel is poorly lit and the street/business signs are extremely small to read from the road. The hotel staff was very friendly and made sure we knew about the...

The main problem with this hotel is that they ONLY have rooms with ONE bed. It is a queen bed but if you are used to a king bed or two beds in a hotel room, this leads to a poor night of sleep. As well the bed in some rooms is right up against the wall so your partner...

Nothing fancy but I got a good rate and the place was quiet and clean. If all you are looking for is a place to sleep this is a good choice. No business center, no pool, not much of an exercise center but I slept well. This hotel is hard to locate and the lack of signs and distance from...

Nice quiet location away from hustle. Which is both a pro and con. Unless you eat at University Club it's a drive to anywhere. They did have a nice menu. But dress code in dining room, so if too casual they'll seat you in the bar area. It's also a pretty good walk to get there from lobby. As far...

This hotel is connected to the prestigious Michigan State University Club, which is a very high-end catering club for guests. So, I assumed the hotel would be nice. It definitely wasn't. It seems so strange to have these two entities connected to one another. I got upgraded (because they accidentally sent me to a room that was occupied) to a...

I have been staying in this hotel for more than 15 days. I never got a proper cleaning in the room.
