First off, they didn't tell us that the heating system is so old that it's a 2 pipe system that is only off or on, so after leaving our room for 8 hrs. and having the heat up to 85 degrees, we came back to a room that was still FREEZING. We called the front desk twice and had to... More

When I arrived, my room was not ready. The people were very helpful and got me in another room immediately. Everybody there was pleasant and the room was great!

Where should I start... I grew up in Lansing and remember this hotel being one of the best in the city. Nice rooms, great dining, good location. It is still a good location but it is one of the worst in the city! They did not have my dates correct when we checked in. (I am glad that I called... More

The telephone system did not work throughout our stay. The screens in the patio doors were falling out. The ceiling leaked and the wallpaper was peeling off. The general feeling of the building is dirty and neglected. The staff was adequate, but never went the extra step that I expect from someone in the hospitality business.

We stay at this hotel every year for 1 week while my daughter attends Michigan State tennis camp. Yes, it is an older hotel but not as pricy as the newer chains. The staff is excellent. I feel that you get your monies worth with all the "extras". It is near the interstate & very easy to get to.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for the weekend on December 9 & 10th. I like this hotel because it is a full service hotel with a nice restaurant and a bar. We had a first-floor room with a patio door that opened up to the parking lot. We parked our car in front of the patio door... More

The night before our trip, I remembered to check out the review for our hotel on Trip Advisor, and saw the "dump" review. I tried unsuccessfully to find another location, but it was too late. Luckily, I was able to prepare my husband that the place may be a bit old. It was quite old. Peeling paint inside and out,... More

I just returned from a one night stay. My daughter had a dance competition nearby, and we had to stay at the Clarion with the rest of the dance team. I was shocked by the condition of this property. It is very old and delapidated, with paint peeling all over the exterior. The room had been redone, but only partially.... More

I have stayed at this location 4 different times. I have always found the staff to be helpful. I can open the windows (I like a cold room). It is a peaceful setting near the expressway. Free breakfast in the morning gives me my protein. Rooms have always been clean.
