Candlewood Suites - East Lansing M.S.U
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in East Lansing
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Had a very pleasant 2 night stay here last week. Each room is a mini-suite with a full kitchen. Ours was all in one room, but that was fine. The rooms have a nice recliner in the corner, free Wi-Fi of course, and even included a package of microwave popcorn in the oven. Our stay was enhanced by the particularly nice staff. Kudos to them. Guests may also eat at the Univ. Club which is all attached in one complex. That was a plus and the food was excellent. The dining room overlooks the pools and the golf course for ambiance, and the waitress we had for Saturday breakfast was also particularly pleasant and helpful. We were there for a wedding which was held on premise, so it was very convenient to celebrate, and then just walk a couple of hundred yards back our room. Worth a stay even if you're just passing through for a one nighter.

Spent the evening at this lovely hotel in East Lansing, on our way to see a show at the Wharton Center. Very quiet location, extremely comfortable, pillow-topped queen bed, recliner (!) chair, free internet, CD player in room, MP-3 player hookup on clock-radio, and very friendly and sincere staff. Loved that it was off the beaten path and QUIET - what a treat! They also have a nice selection of CDs and DVDs/videotapes to borrow for free in the lobby and a small store with a good selection of snacks, breakfast items, ice cream and sodas at reasonable prices. Coffee and tea are available free 24/7. Breakfast is not included but there is a full kitchen in each one room suite and enough things to buy in the little store in the lobby for a quick early rising nosh. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd floor are quieter.

Everyone here was helpful & friendly. The "suite" was small,but really clean and on the ground floor. We only brought our dog this time, but I inquired and they do take cats--$25 pet fee. You get free membership to the University Club next door,too.

Room Tip: Join the priorty club free and get free upgrades; unfortunately they put animals only on the ground...

I just stayed here and the room was great. It has a full kitchen if you would be planning on staying an extended amount of time. Comfortable bed, nice towels, coffee pot,and pop corn for the microwave. Coffee is also available in the lobby area. I booked a room at Quality Suites for a Park and Fly out of the Lansing airport. I had called the Quality 800 number. I was told to call one week before my stay and let them know when my flight was. I called one week before and I was rudely told the Park and Fly was full. So I got on the phone and started calling other hotels. Will, the desk manager was SO helpful. I loved the GREAT service I received. The shuttle was ready to take me to the airport at 4:10 am and they will pick me up when my flight arrives back in Lansing. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again! The only issue - it is a "green" hotel. They don't have ice machines. I had to wait about 45 minutes for my icemaker in the refrigerator to make ice. This wasn't a problem for me. Just wanted to let you know.

Staff was friendly and helpful as they were students from The School of Hospitality Business at MSU. The location is somewhat removed and on the campus border which seemed to be a negative for us. The hotel is connected to the University Club which does provide good dining options but nothing is complimentary.

Average property (facilities, bedding, amenities, etc.) but very acceptable accommodations for weekend at MSU. Student run staff, I believe- very helpful. Can walk directly to the first tee of championship golf course. Not kid friendly as far as pool facilities/activities....minimal to no access...

The rooms are nicely appointed: full refrigerator, stove, microwave & dishwasher. Everything you'd need to stay a week and study including wired complimentary internet. The beds fit tightly - very close to the wall. Not alot of extra space. The staff was extremely friendly, fresh cookies every night. HOT TIP: the front desk has an enormous collection of movies to borrow ~ nice touch! Cozy lobby. This property is connected via interior hallways to the Henry Center. First class operation but toiletries were lacking.... bring your own from home. The fan on my HVAC was noisy and ran all night, but the windows open for fresh air. Fantastic bargain rate!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are actually on the main walking floor. First floor rooms in the back are well c...
