Clean rooms. Easy access to I-94 and Kalamazoo attractions, but nothing interesting in walking distance.
Our smoke alarm battery decided to die at 11 PM, and we got reasonably prompt attention to our service request; however, it seems like routine replacement of batteries would avoid this problem and do more to ensure safety of guests. At first we thought the thermostat in our room was only settable by staff, but when the guy came to change out our fire alarm battery, he showed us that you just had to mash them really really hard.
I didn't notice myself (didn't watch anything but 5 minutes of weather in the breakfast room), but my husband and kids said the TVs (in room and in the public areas) were low-quality. Pool seemed small but kids enjoyed it. Basketball court - front desk had a basketball the kids could use.
Since they knew a bunch of people were there for a sporting event and had to leave early, they opened up their breakfast bar early on Saturday. They implied it would just be a few cold items, but they in fact had the whole spread. I especially appreciated the presence of fresh blueberries and chopped pecans near the oatmeal and waffle makers (I added them to yogurt). Oddly, they also had strawberry 'topping', chocolate chips, caramel syrup, and whipped cream, which made me wonder if they have a sundae bar on some week nights! I've seen strawberries and whipped cream on waffles, but caramel syrup for breakfast? Odd. However, as I said - we really appreciated them setting up breakfast early to meet the needs of their guests!
