I have stayed at this location one other time for a work function. We chose it because it was the only hotel that fit 6 people in one place without costing an arm and a leg. We didn't have issues last year, but this year I woke up the following morning with 2 bites on my hand, a bite on... More

The staff was friendly, and the beds and towels were clean. That's where the good report ends. There was mold in the shower, the paint was peeling off the walls, and there is water damage to the baseboards. This nut that holds on the lamp shade was missing and I knocked it off twice getting into bed. Overpriced for what... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and was sadly disappointed. i stayed in a queen studio. The room was relatively clean but the towels were ancient. The rooms are dated 1980's / early 90's and the bedding is worn. The WiFi worked. There was a definite odor in the room--mold, beer, something. Not strong but always there. That's about as... More

We only stayed one night but the one night was good. The rooms have a kitchenette and lots of space . Every thing was good inside the room our only problem was at night you can't see the room numbers . It definitely should be lit up more at night but over all I would stay here again.

This is an old Residence Inn. For whatever reason it is no longer. The rooms are beginning to become run down. The pool was padlocked and the water lever low. The exterior is showing age from neglect. The place is in major need of updating. There is no room service on the weekends so make sure you get your towels... More

I hate to write a review like this, but I wish I would've known before we booked our stay here. We took a group of high school students in late May for a competition at MSU. We chose this hotel because of the proximity to MSU, the kitchens and the pool. We booked three rooms, two which were suites. One... More

I paid for the stay through Priceline, the hotel hit me again with $152.56. I called the hotel and they told me it will get credited to my account within 5 business days, guess what, nothing happened. I opened a dispute through my credit card and the credit card company said it may take one or two billing cycles. What... More

This hotel was clean, affordable and had nice suites. Kitchenettes were nice, but I didn't use it because I was just there one night. The check in person was very nice. It took some time to figure out the TV, which required some jury-rigging. But for the price, I lived with it.
