The property is very well maintained, rooms are good and clean - but not exceptional. Staff are friendly. Breakfast was very good. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have a car as it's quite a hike to any restaurants for meals other than breakfast

Hello Darren, Thank you for the review. Yes, the Prince Center is somewhat secluded from dining options, especially in the summer; during the school year we have options right here on Calvin College's campus. I hope this will not deter you from staying with us in the future! Thanks again! Safe Travels, Justin J. More

Waiting for my wife to return from Israel. The room was a cross between a dorm and hotel. There was nothing exceptional about this place but it was convenient for us to wait. The staff was super friendly and they do have snacks out. The rates were below market value for a place like this.

Hello ramblervball, Thank you for rating the Prince Center! Our rooms were designed to be convenient to guests attending a conference at our facility. They may have the impression of a dorm due to the counter space attached to the dresser/entertainment center; yet, there are no shared bathrooms!

I really like the no frills prince conference center. It's all a hotel should be clean, quiet and functional. It's a little pricey for the area but you truly have no worries. The open lobby to the decent hot breakfast with the hotel being close to everything is a huge plus. It's the staff that really make the difference however.... More

My sister booked this hotel as the Country Inn and Suites was soooo expensive. We were helping a family member pack to move so we just needed a clean, safe place to stay after working all day.

I stayed there on business, and it was a decent place. The accommodations were clean and functional, nothing fancy, but a really nice and spacious lobby area. The breakfast was OK, not great, but acceptable. The level of hospitality was exceptional.

From the warm greeting of staff to the spotless room (with all the amenities) to the amazing breakfast, plus treats (cookies, fruit, snacks, tea) available throughout the day, the Prince is our favorite place to stay when we are in town.
