We had 3 rooms, they were able to get all of us on one end of a hall so we were together. Hotel has some wear and tear, but it is close to the University and is booked most of the time. Restaurant was great, we ate our dinner and they had 1/2 lb burgers for $6.50 and $2 Long...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 October 2016

I had made a reservation online for a trip to Big Rapids for Ferris State Dawg Days (Open House). We pulled into the parking lot of the Holiday Inn in Big Rapids and the lot was jammed...it was homecoming weekend, there was a hockey game and Ferris State had an open house. I thought to myself, "I'm glad we have...

Stayed with group of family and friends to relax, see a performance that was showing at the hotel, and unwind. The evening reception was a welcome surprise - wine and snacks. The room was clean, bed extremely comfortable, service by staff superb! We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the onsite restaurant. Although the parking lot was full, we heard...

Registration person very helpful while checking in with three rooms. Rooms were clean and spacious. Their restaurant food was great and the waiter was fantastic while taking our orders with fifteen people to serve. The show at the hotel was fabulous we all had a good time.

We only spent one night, but we'd stay again if we ever get back to Big Rapids. The clerk at check-in was very friendly. It was nice to have the restaurant/bar right there. Our room was nice but we were in the end room on the second floor and the traffic noise was very loud. I'm sure they would have...

We stayed here for a hockey tournament at Ferris State with our kids. The hotel staff was awesome. They were friendly and accommodating. The pool was great for the kids and the hotel is very close to the college campus. They even gave us breakfast vouchers for being part of the hockey group. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They...

I stay at the Big Rapids Holiday Inn at least once a year, quite a bit more lately (son in college there). Over the last so many years it was becoming very outdated and a bit run down looking, though service, for me, has always been good at this one. They've renovated and brought the property up to modern look...

I stayed at this hotel and have to say their staff have to be the most friendly, kind, helpful and patience staff I have ever interacted with at a hotel. I have stayed at MANY hotels and the staff here was the best! The hotel and restaurant were clean, inviting and fresh.

From my experience, older properties can be a risk depending on how well the place is maintained and kept up to date. Aside from the elevator warning "no more than six people," everything has been nice. The views are out over the adjoining small hills. The rooms have the size that is more often seen in older properties. Since upgrades...

This was a one night stay, due to a college visit with my daughter. Front desk personnel were very accommodating. Room was clean, and bathroom was nice. Did not use the pool. Worst part of stay was eating at attached restaurant - See that review.
