This hotel met our expectations for a brief weekend stay in East Lansing while we were visiting Michigan State. Positives: Price! I went and booked through Hotwire and got the room for $83 (listed as a 2.5 star property) when all the similar hotels in the area were going for $115 and above. Extensive breakfast options. Modern. Clean. Convenient parking.... More

I am currently staying here as I write this. I've been here all week and it has been a wonderful experience. The rooms are clean and spacious. Nice variety for breakfast. Comfortable beds. Good location right off of 96 with plenty of restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay again when I am in the area.

I have never stayed her before, but first impression of lobby, breakfast area and beautiful pool and patio creates a fantastic first impression. However, after first night stay, I had to check out because of a TICK on the bathroom floor. It took me a good 4 minutes to get someone to come to the front desk, and then the... More

Extremely satisfied with this hotel. It's a great place for an education conference. The employees are friendly and the rooms are very comfortable with plenty of clean towels, a microwave and a refrigerator. They also offer a fantastic breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, fruits, cereals, yogurt and pastries. There are also plenty of restaurants close by. Also offer a swimming... More

First, staff is very nice. Check-in and check-out was very easy and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Many restaurants or various prices and tastes within walking distance. My only complaint is the hall smells. Not one hall or one floor, but all the halls. Time for new carpet.

Stayed here one night. Kids had a fun time in the pool. The layout of the hotel is awkward and we ended up zig zagging all around before finding our room. The breakfast area could have been bigger, but overall it was a nice stay.

We were visiting family for our nephew's graduation. The hotel was great, room was comfortable. We like Holiday Inns. Would recommend it and we will stay again. Breakfast in the morning was great also, staff always greeted us with a smile. Pool was nice. Location was perfect.

I'm a spire member and stay at a lot of IHG properties and was pleasantly surprised. This is an older property that was a different brand in a past life and the layout is odd; however, everything was clean and worked well. The kids will like the atrium enclosed pool as it was a unique pool. The staff was friendly... More
