We were in town for family business and just needed to find somewhere to stay for four nights that didn't cost an arm and leg and would take our dog. Front desk and housekeeping were very friendly and got our room cleaned PDQ, as we did get there early. I had requested two beds, but when opening the room door... More

Check in was very friendly. Room was very outdated. Room temp was very warm. Took a couple of hours to figure out how to turn the heat off. I am 5'2" and could not reach the AC unit to turn it on. And then only cooled off one room. WiFi very poor. Beds were like cement. Recliner was like it... More

Room was clean but old stains on side of box spring. Internet was very poor unless you wanted to sit outside near the office. Wouldn't stay here again! It was a basic room that hadn't been updated since????

If you loved your mom's mint green Kitchenaid mixer then you will love this place! Looks like it was built in 1962 and they just decided never to updated it. The chemical cleanser scent hits you like bloody nose in the cheap seats, but you get used to it. Then you start to like it. Then you crave it. Then... More

We got a room for a week, tried to change our mind right away. No refunds. It was in the middle of the winter and our room didn't have heat. The price was alright but I wouldn't stay there again unless it was between that or sleeping in my car.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were neat and cozy. I especially enjoyed the motel's convenient location in the town. Had a wonderful time staying here, and I would highly recommend it to all.

This place is open 24/7. I checked in at 2 am in the night. The staff was really friendly. My room was nice and comfy....nothing fancy, but with all the necessary amenities. The rates were comparatively lower than other lodgings in the area. The location is perfect, in the heart of Grand Rapids. I stayed 2 nights, and and also... More

The room was clean and nice. It was a little small compared to a hotel room, but it was what we paid for and very clean. The housekeeping staff was very nice and kept the room well-stocked and the managers were also very accommodating for me and my children.

Don't quite know how to evaluate this. Check-in was polite but confusing. Finally decided I'd just take whatever she gave me--I was tired. The room had fridge, microwave and a big chair, but all were pretty worn. It wasn't noticeably dirty or stained, but it didn't feel clean either. Were In to travel this route again, I would check out... More
