My friends and I stayed here when we came into town for an MSU vs UofM football game. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! Diane (host) and the other guests were all friendly and breakfast was plentiful and filling and tasty! The rooms had unique decorations so you definitely felt the care she took to style each room differently. I’d highly recommend this place to others!

I absolutely loved staying here. I was working the comedy club in town and the cozy koi felt like a home away from home. The owner is delightful, the breakfast is wonderful and the decor is fantastic. Would highly recommend!

The Cozy Koi is a delightful inn full of character and beauty. The rooms were clean and inviting, the bed comfortable. Diane is a gracious and accommodating hostess and Teddy the dog was a polite and very well behaved pup. Stop in and enjoy the atmosphere, conversation, and hearty home prepared breakfast. Our meal included fresh fruit, juices, coffee, tea, homemade jam, sourdough toast, fresh zucchini bread, baked egg casserole, sausage, etc.

Diane was an amazing host who made a delicious homemade breakfast. Our room was tidy and very clean, her dog was delightful and we had all access hours as we were there for a concert and stayed out late. We would definitely go back!!

What a great, welcome return to the Cozy Koi...It had been 3 years since my previous visit. With the stress of a contentious political election behind us and a global pandemic still to be reckoned with, it was reassuring that Diane's Cozy Koi remains firmly and lovingly in place. You can't ask for a better local historian or proprietress to welcome one. My room was spotless and so welcoming after a long day of travel. And sleeping 9 hours in her comfortable bed my first night was a luxury I rarely experience. Thank you, Diane, for welcoming me into your beautiful home again and for treating (and feeding!) me so well...

We stayed one night and we stayed in the African Safari Room. We were the only ones there so we had full run of the house. The whole house was amazing, it was very clean. I looked in every room and every room was beautiful. Diane the owner/Innkeeper was so nice and friendly. Anything we needed, she was right there. Her breakfast was amazing and filled us up. She has a dog named Teddy, which is a handsome well behaved fellow. I really enjoyed the whole experience. We will go back in the future and stay again. We are from the area, so it was just a relaxing stay at the inn night. If you are from another area though, it is a prime location, near food and shopping. It is also a very safe and secure area. I highly recommend staying here.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Cozy Koi. Both times the hostess was friendly and welcoming. The inn was restful, a good place to relax. The breakfast was fabulous. A great place for a quiet get-a-way.

Challenged to review. The host was very nice, breakfast was great and dog was fun to play with. The challenge is to note the clutter, her collections, that makes one uncomfortable setting anything down as you may not see it. We put our stuff back on our suitcases to make sure nothing was left. There were 15 pillows in just our bedroom. Neighborhood was quiet.

I loved our stay at this Kitch lovers dream. Mid-century antiques and personal charm. Diane is just lovely - she truly makes you feel like a guest in her home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and you're a 10 minute walk from the Capitol area (REO town?) and Old Town, both of which have fun things to do. You're also 3 blocks from the River Trail, which spans from downtown Lansing to the MSU campus. It's beautiful and would be a great place to bike ride or canoe. There are 2 houses; we stayed in the yellow one. You park in her grass lot in back, but since we were the first guests to arrive that day, we got the carport. You have access to the whole house, basically. Kitchen, living room, and a 2-person balcony, along with your individual room that has a bathroom and kitchenette, but no TV. I don't care about that at all, but I can see how others would. There is a TV available in the communal living room. We stayed in the Garden Room, which is very economical, but has a rather old school bathroom and vibe. We were perfectly happy as it was clean and welcoming with windows that open to allow great ventilation. Next time, I think we'd stay in the room with the balcony and updated bathroom, it was very nice looking. You'd have to share the balcony if someone was staying in the room next door, but it's perfect for friends or family staying together. I think it would be really fun to rent out the whole house. The best feature of our room was the kitchenette which is fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, a kettle, etc. If I had to stay in Lansing for work for a few days, I'd definitely grocery shop and cook. There is a lovely separate dining area with a big window. Since you have access to the living room, you could conceivably have people over, even. Breakfast was at 8:30 with a slightly flexible time depending on what time you request the day before. Diane made this delicious baked egg dish with cheese and hash browns that was fluffy and savory and perfect. She served it with fresh fruit, homemade warm chocolate banana bread, ham and turkey bacon since we asked for it. So considerate. Great coffee, juice, and conversation around a family style table with your housemates. Different. Cool. Diane is great at facilitating conversation. I highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back soon!
