“Sports weekend”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We stayed for a night when we went for a sports weekend. Rooms were clean but pretty sparce. Not much sound proofing between rooms and/or the hall ways so you could hear your neighbours all the time. Breakfast area was clean and breakfast was pretty basic, waffle maker, scrambled eggs and bagels and muffins. Enough to get your day started but we have seen better food selection at most other hotels.

Staff were good and courteous and pool area would be a real appeal for families. Bartender and bar pricing were both good.

Overall, it is a Quality Inn and so is pretty much consistent with that brand. We were a little surprised at the pricing at $110 for a night but I guess it is close to MSU.

We used this hotel for accommodations for our daughter's wedding guests - 20 rooms. We could not have been happier with our experience. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. Beds were comfortable, the pool was super for the children and families, and the suite in which we stayed worked well as a site where our friends could gather for snacks, beverages, and fellowship. The extras of cookies at the front desk, a hot breakfast, and 2 drinks per night added a very nice touch. The common areas were large and well kept. I highly recommend this hotel.

We decided to stop for the night for the first time in Lansing, after traveling state and country roads to the city. Stopping in the downtown, we were directed from a lovely Radisson, which was sold out, to the University Quality Inn on Grand River Road, about ten minutes from the downtown. Found it to be very clean, with a friendly, helpful staff; free cocktails; next door to a refurbished bowling alley with sports restaurant that was fun and lively.

Breakfast was good and hot, everything was kept full and was quality. Every room receives 2 drink tickets to the tiki bar near the indoor pool each night, a plus. rooms were small, beds were only full size-too small for todays person- and whole place needed updating- a minus. The desk staff was fantastic. pool nice, clean as was the hot tub and workout room. The biggest minus, on Friday they jacked up the price 100 bucks a room because michigan state was playing football in town, a minus and a rip! that cost them one star.
we were there for the girls state final golf tournament, we will return to the same hotel w/o a doubt.

Room Tip: choose the king size bed rooms, double beds too small. Rooms are loud, but location overrides all.

Stayed here with friends and their children in adjoining rooms and a great time was had by all! The kids loved the cookies at check in hand the adults appreciated the drinks by the poolside bar. Staff was super friendly, hotel was clean, rooms were well kept and the fridge in the room was a bonus. Breakfast is included and there were lots of options. Hotel is walking distance from the bowling alley, laser tag, shopping, Sugar Berry and more. We will definitely stay here again!

This is my third visit to this hotel. They do a great job. Many would not know this property is over 40 years old. Rooms each visit have been updated. They are always clean and fresh. The courtyard area is a very good space for breakfast and relaxing. The complimentary beverage offered at check-in is a nice touch. Staff has always been friendly and accommodating. Good job!

I stayed here back in June, and when I needed to return to the area, this was the first place I called. Rooms are clean (fridge, microwave & in-room coffee = BONUS), and all staff are courteous and extremely customer-service driven. Breakfast is good and includes eggs & meat as well as variety of bread, fruit and yogurt. Variety of restaurants nearby. I highly recommend and will stay here again. Super close and easy to get to from Lansing Center or Kellogg Center if you have a conference at either of these venues.
