The room was clean and warm (weather had just turned cold). Refrigerator and microwave in the room were a plus. Can't hear neighbors or plumbing but anybody talking on the walk outside is so loud you could join the conversation. Bring your own toiletries. Beds were comfortable. This non -smoking room does have a smell of old cigarette smoke, as... More

Clean. Bed comfortable. Safe feeling area. Helpful desk employees. A good place for a frill-free, affordable stay. I would not hesitate to stay again. Was in town for a dog show, very pet friendly. They even provide clean-up bags in the dog walking area.

perfect for an affordable, good night sleep - nothing flashy. Clean, comfortable, and fair priced. Came back because previous stay was nice. Nothing really to awesome or bad - just overall solid establishment

Although everything was clean and it is supposed to be a nonsmoking room, the smell of cigarette smoke was nauseating. The price was right, it provided a bed to sleep in but that is all I can say. You get what you pay for.

Has modern decor, and it was clean. The only thing I didn't like was the small bathroom and short toilet. Beds were comfy. There was a chair beside one bed and lots of lighting. Will stay again if in the area.

After reading other reviews we were concerned with things such as bugs and cleanliness. After arriving we carefully inspected our room and were very impressed on the cleanliness and the remodeling. Overall it was a nice stay, the only things that could use approving our more comfortable beds and better water pressure in the shower. Will stay here again for... More

Room had modern decor and location was a plus, right next to WMU campus. Lots of restaurants and shops down the street as well. Walls are thin as we could hear very loudly whenever someone opened a door near our block of rooms, but other than that, things were quiet. I would recommend for a no frills, just looking for...

I spent one night here. There were no amenities in the room at all. The bathtub was filthy I finally tried cleaning it out myself when no response from front desk. I had to go to the lobby to get toilet paper, shampoo and towels. I have never stayed anywhere that the tub and the floor looked like this hotel.
