“Solid value/Hot breakfast/Super staff”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Staybridge staff were uniformly ready to help with any need that we had. From a gracious check in to an assist on making delicious Hot Waffles to use of the front office printer for a self-guided tour of MSU, each person embraced the idea that "we are here to help you." This is truly refreshing. This hotel makes the guest feel welcome and appreciated: more like family in their place than a number to be placed in an available room. You cannot say enough for such cheer after a long day of travel.

The hotel property is perfectly clean outside and in. The rooms are quite large and well decorated, with a relaxing front room: perfect for beer and snacks before heading out to dinner. The beds are quite comfortable: my wife came home and wished we were still in "their beds, they are better than ours!" The linens and soaps were higher quality than I expected, as well.

Location is convenient. Value is excellent: It is hard to beat a suite, comfortable beds, refrig/freezer/kitchen and great breakfast for 3 people at around $150 for everything.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are great. Their "quiet policy" from 10--8AM is brilliant!

After a very fast check in we were too tired to go out and eat but the hotel furnished a nice sandwich bar and was plenty for dinner for tired travelers. Everyone went way beyond making sure our needs were met. The manager was so friendly she talked to us that night and also at breakfast the next morning. We drive a little out of our way to stay here again. Downside was that it was quite pricey.

We had a wedding to attend in Okemos and since we were staying in Detroit, we didn't want to drive back so late and decided to book a hotel near the reception.

We chose this hotel because the rates were a bit lower than the others. When we arrived, we checked in within minutes. The receptionist already had our booking information ready, we signed, gave an ID and were given the keys to our room on the ground floor.

She instructed us to park our car in the back of the hotel since it would be right in front of the room. Our room had a sofa bed for our kids and the a small kitchenette. It was perfect for our overnight stay, enough room for the 4 of us to hang out.

The had an indoor pool that the kids loved and swam in for an hour before we headed to the wedding.

The next morning, there was breakfast downstairs. It was simple and we liked that a lot. Kids got to make their own waffles too.

It's really a nice hotel, we will definitely go back there next time we visit our relatives!!!

Room Tip: Lots of parking

I was just staying overnight and needed a room in the East Lansing area. Staybridge Suites was the perfect choice. When I checked in I was greeted by the friendly staff and given a great recomendation for a nearby restaurant where I had dinner - The Stillwater Grill. http://stillwatergrill.com/
The room was comfortable. The fitness center was adequate. The staff was helpful. And, the complimentary breakfast was very good and had even more variety than I expected! All in all - my stay exceeded my expectations!

I had a meeting bringing people from Louisiana, Texas, and Michigan. We had the choice of dinner at numerous nearby locations or the hotel. They liked the food and hotel so much that we just brought wine and had dinner at the hotel! What a nice dinner selection, pizzas, soup and a very nice salad bar. After explaining extended stay housing to one of my guests his company is joining IHGs priority club! He was new with the company and found they were just booking rooms anywhere. They do emergency service work nationwide and he really loved the room and all it the amenities so he can relax after a long day of work. Also having plenty of space in his room to not feel cramped while doing paperwork. Again thank you to Mike and Malinda for running a smooth operation while making me look like a hero to my valuable clients. I look forward to bring more meetings and using the conference space! Your crew is top notch! Dave

This is our second time staying here for an MSU game. 15 min. drive. Rooms are very spacious, updated and very clean. Last time I reviewed I mentioned thin walls - which might be one reason they now impose this "noise" ordinance where you are fined if someone complains about you a second time. Good Bye -hotel parties! This is not the place for you! The place was very quiet. Great for families! Didn't swim-again Pool is nothing to write home about. Breakfast was as expected-nothing spectacular but hot and some decent options. Would stay again for sure. Also, there a some really nice restaurants, a starbucks, and Grand Traverse Pie Co. right next to hotel!

Room Tip: No roll aways at this hotel or connecting rooms. Suggest top floor.

I stayed here for a night- given to understand that the location is awesome with its proximity to the University and commercial establishments.
Had a wonderful room with a kichenette- though I didnt use it much, I met guests who were using the rooms and found it to be as good as staying at home. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very well maintained. Would defintiely recommend this hotel to anybody traveling to this part of the world!

Thank you for review! I am very pleased to hear you had a wonderful stay! Don't feel bad about not using the kitchen! We like to cook for our guests.

Thank you for mentioning the close proximity to MSU! Sometimes people that have not been here feel it is far away even if we tell them it is only 3 miles.

Come back and see us again!
