Stayed in a very nice room with a deck area outside of my room. It also had a walkway to the outdoor pool. Excellent karaoke in the lounge when I was there. Staff was professional and courteous. Next to the 131 interstate.

We have stayed at this Hotel several times over the years basicly because of the 5th floor recreation area.

The toilet in our room ran for hours and was reported to the...

My children and I traveled to Grand Rapids to run in a race the next day. We were not able to get adequate rest as rooms were filthy...they had hair all over the floors and bedding and a horrible odor filled the room. The fuse repeatedly blew and the microwave, television, lights, and refrigerator stopped working. As we entered the...
