Just checked into this hotel in Lansing. Upon arrival I pulled up to the hotel and was greeted by the Valet. When I asked if there was another parking option he informed me that he would park my car for $16.00 a day. I again asked for another option and he told me that I could park across the street in the parking garage for $10.00 a day. When I asked if I could unload my bags (I have a number of them due to supporting the military this weekend for drill). I was informed that I could not unload my bags, that I was in a Fire Lane (no sign for the Fire Lane, only two-sided that clearly reads, "Valet Parking.") and that I could receive a ticket for parking in the Fire Lane. He informed me that I would need to pull across the street, park in the garage and carry my bags across the walkway. Upon checking in at the desk by the very cold attendant, I was informed that since I did not use the Valet, if I left the parking garage for any reason and returned, there is a $6.00 return fee each time I move my vehicle. To say the least, I am not pleased. The room is very small, no microwave or fridge. Be careful when you leave that you pull hard on the door, I found mine standing open to realize that it sticks. Walking down the hallway I saw two other doors that were partially open, probably due to the same problem. I decided not to move my car and walk around the area looking for restaurants. The only good ones are very expensive (much more than government per diem) so I ended up eating at a sub shop. When returning from dinner on the elevator with another guest and asked him how he was doing and his exact remark, "this place sucks"......have no idea and didn't ask more. My only save is that I'm filling in for a co-worker for the weekend because he was on another trip. Have already emailed him warning him to book a different hotel. Not worth the price, the unfriendly staff, the costly meals, and the small room.....and I still have three more days here.
