I am not sure where all the bad reviews are coming from. We needed a place to stay for our Frankenmuth/Burch Run trip and found this place. I was skeptical at first bc of all the bad reviews but was amazed by our stay. We had a inside room that faced inward toward the indoor atrium that had a pool,... More

It smelled like marijuana and cigarettes and the place was dirty and nothing was fixed, most things were broken. Stay only for an emergency or low on money. I went for a party and the hot tub was a cold tub, what a shame. And only one of everything worked or wasn't broken. The pool looked as if it was... More

First off the pool and hot tub they boast about on Web site was shut down, water was green. They said they were doing renovations was the reason but none had been started, and it hadn't been used in quite a while for sure. The rooms we had had no garbage cans, no light bulbs, TV used a penny in... More

Where do I start? This is by the far most disgusting hotel I've ever stayed at. Horrible customer service. They do not care about your needs and wants. Pool is shut down. Jacuzzi is shut down. Everything is shut down. The room is filithy. Heat does not work on the second floor. Mold all over the bathrooms. This hotel should... More

Because I have stayed at this particular hotel numerous times throughout the years, I have seen constant improvement. Starting with the lobby areas, the meeting room, and freshly painted hallways and carpeting, the management is working hard to restore the hotel's beauty. I travel frequently with groups of photographers and models, and I enjoy the the easy freeway access and... More

Went to enjoy myself at the lounge as I do with friends sometimes, and usually get a room after as it's not as bad as advertised. But this last Saturday night/Sunday morning, I had the life threatening experience of trying not to get shot over other drunk patrons. I decided to not even get a room as usual and debating... More

The only thing that is America's Best about this property is the best chance to become a crime statistic or pick up a communicable disease by staying here. The latest was a triple shooting in the hotel bar on Thanksgiving Nov 2014 weekend. If drugs, prostitution, theft violence and violence is your game this is the place for you. If... More

I accidentally bait & switched myself by researching the same chain in Birch Run and then booking in Saginaw. Do not, I REPEAT DO NOT STAY HERE...unless of course you're planning on filming a zombie or horror film. Dirty: once you get past the newly updated lobby, you're met with absolute filth. The dimly lit and smoke-smelling corredors guide you... More
