“Great Hotel”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

When I checked in the staff was just wonderful. The room was very clean and only negative would be it smelled a little musty (do to air was on). The pool area had plenty of towels and was very clean. The breakfast had a very large selection. Would stay at this hotel again!

The signage for this place was not that great; I wasn't sure where the front desk was and drove around the buildings a bit. Maybe I just came in from the wrong direction. It seemed to take a long time to get checked in because the only staff was on the phone. Then they couldn't meet my request of where I wanted my room, maybe it was too late in the day for that. I think it was maybe 6 or 7. The room was clean and the hotel was nice. They had a breakfast buffet and I liked that they had hard boiled eggs.

We were acknowledged as Priority Club members on check-in. Our stay was comfortable and the room was very nice. The towels were so soft and thick. Great linens!

I have stayed at this property at least 20 times over the past 15 years, even back when it was the Comfort Inn. What brings me back time and time again is the excellent management (which also manages the hotel next door), the excellent facilities, and the convenient location. The hotel is large and a bit sprawling, but there are multiple access points. There is a nice breakfast area, a small but good indoor swimming pool, and an efficient gym area for working out. The hotel is not deluxe (though nice large suites are available) but it is very comfortable and clean. My primary concern is that it seems the prices continue to rise every time I visit, and it's getting on the upper edges of my budget - in fact, I once considered this place to be an exceptional value, but I felt some twinges of pain this time when I paid the bill. Nonetheless, it is a well-run facility that perfectly suits my needs when I am in the Lansing area. Located near many good restaurants and immediately adjacent to I-96, the hotel offers superior convenience and is quite user-friendly. No doubt, I will be back, and will continue to recommend this hotel to friends and associates.

A friend and I went to Lansing to watch a couple of hockey games at MSU and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Okemos. The hotel was very clean, the rooms were more than adequate as was the bed. The pool area was very nice and bright with pool, hot tub, and sauna. Location was great to get to MSU, and not far from downtown Lansing as well. There were plenty of options for eating in the area as well. I would recommend this hotel, and would gladly stay again in the future.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, including one night with 2 rooms. The front desk was understaffed and the one working receptionist on a Saturday morning was very rude and unprofessional. After staying two nights my husband attempted to check into an additional room mid-morning. The front desk receptionist snapped at him and said “We have 3 weddings here today and check in is at 4 pm.” Our friends were able to check into their room 20 minutes later… From others I heard they waited in line for ½ hour in the afternoon to check in. I do not understand how checking into a room at a hotel has turned into such a difficult task.
On a side note, the cleaning lady did not arrive to our room until 4pm in the afternoon…
I’ve never actually wrote a negative review on a hotel, but this is in hopes the hotel can hire polite and capable staff. It is a nice facility so it is a shame they were able to put a damper on our stay.

Stayed in room 208 (non-smoking) and it smelled like an ashtray. Upon talking with the desk clerk I learned that many of the previously designated "Smoking" rooms were just recently converted to "Non-smoking"... but apparently they weren't renovated - only cleaned. Note to Hotel owners: you can't just spread a little carpet fresh and eliminate smoke odors which have concentrated for years in the carpet, draperies, and on the furniture, walls, and upholstery. You really need to disclose this to your potential guests -my room was smelly, miserable and unsatisfactory... and resulted in a poor night's rest.

Fellow travelers: if you plan to stay at HIX Okemos in a non-smoking room and don't wish to feel like you're sleeping in an ashtray, CHECK YOUR ROOM WHEN YOU ARRIVE!
