“Clean, Nice Hotel”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

A friend and I spent a Friday night here and it was better than we expected. Everything was clean and in working order. We had a room with two double beds, which each had their own area separated by the bathroom. The room also included a mini fridge, microwave, and second sink in the kitchenette area. The morning breakfast was simple, but has an adequate amount of options for most people to find something to eat. I would definitely return to this hotel.

I have already reserved for my extended stay coming up this spring. Super friendly and accommodating front desk and manager. Nice clean rooms with nice sized area for micro/fridge/coffee, and small sink between the little living room area and the bedroom. Very nice clean bathrooms with lots of fluffy towels, shampoo, and other toiletries. Living room area has loveseat sofa bed, desk, coffee table, lamps, and small flat screen TV with DVD player. Bedroom has nice comfy bed, TV stand/dresser combo with TV and lots of lighting. Some of the fixtures and furniture are a little old or mismatched but in very good condition and very very clean. Overall very comfy and cozy. The front lobby is very inviting and home like and there is a bright and clean dining room. breakfast was waffles, hard boiled eggs, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, bagels, toast, OJ, milk, fruit, and yogurt and regularly restocked and cleaned. My room was towards the front of the hotel and I could occasionally hear someone using the main staircase to go upstairs but other than this perfectly quiet. Considering there was a group of teen/college aged athletes staying in the hotel the same time I did, this hotel was super quiet. Highly recommend!!!

My wife and I do not normally stay at this type of lodging but based on reviews and pricing we decided to take a risk and go for it.
Our check in was straight forward. When entering our room, we discovered that we had been given an upgrade to a suite without asking! Even though you could tell that there is some aspects that could use renovations, we felt the unit was very clean, spacious and well maintained. We enjoyed the extra space and a place to call a living room away from home.
This Econo Lodge is a find in Grand Rapids.

Room Tip: Room 204 is a suite; bathroom has new ceramic tiles in it. Was quiet and no issues for noise.

We stayed at this hotel because we had an early flight from Grand Rapids and they had a reasonable rate that included free parking and a shuttle to the GR airport. We had 2 queen beds, each in their own area with a bathroom between them. There was also a microwave and a small refrigerator. The shuttle operates any time you need it, our flight was a 6 am so we went to the airport at 4:30 am. Just had to call to be picked up on our return to GR. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is close to the airport and there are several places to eat that are nearby. Great place to stay before a trip.

We needed a reasonably priced hotel for a quick visit to Grand Rapids. We arrived to find a clean hotel that accepts pets. Our room had two rooms separated by an area that held a small refrigerator and microwave. Each room has a television and a queen bed. The decor is a little dated. Breakfast was the usual fare of waffles, yogurt, cereal, etc.

Room Tip: Since we had a pet with us they placed us on the first floor at the very end of the building. They...

This is a pretty nice hotel for the average traveler. We are not however the average traveler. Due to my wife's stroke, the most important requirement for a motel room is a roll in shower...that is a shower which does not require a step up and into a tub. We booked through the Choice Hotels web site and they advertised a roll in shower. We arrived after a long day of driving with evening plans only to be told they only had tubs in their rooms. We stayed anyway since we did not have time to look for another room. We made it but it was scary for both of us getting her in and out of the tub. The hotel promised to fix their web site listing but it's been months and I just checked again and they still show having a roll in shower for their handicap room. Choice hotels also promised to fix this but they too failed. Other than that, it was a very adequate hotel with most rooms being a suite for a reasonable price. We are not however likely to stay there again due to the shower issue. Beware if you need a roll in shower. Guess I don't understand why more hotels don't have roll in showers; the population is aging and I suspect there will be more call this type of room going forward

My wife and I stayed at this property on the 19th of Oct for one night. We booked on Priceline and got a good price. The property was clean and inviting inside and out. The check in process was simple and quick. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a two room suite with TV's in both rooms and a fold out couch in the living room. The room was tastefully decorated and very clean. The bed was alittle firmer than we were used to but we both slept well. The room had a refridgerator and a microwave. The continental breakfast was about average for this type of property and we had no complaints. All in all a very pleasant time.
