It wasn't bad. They did let me check in early. I didn't notice until when I was checking out that the smoke detector didn't have a battery. The door was a little drafty. could see daylight all around the door. Bathroom had no heat other than from the room do tile was a little cold to step on.

Clean, Comfortable, Economical & Convenient

We were looking for these values in GR. We viewed poor reviews from several months before but the owner had responded with an apology and indicating his intent to correct. A more recent review indicated improvements were done. We decided to take a chance and we're pleased we did. It's not a 4 star hotel but well worth the price.

Comfort and Convenience with a Reasonable Price

We spent a night in one of the recently renovated rooms this past weekend and we really enjoyed our stay! The renovations have been very tastefully done and we found the room to be clean and comfortable. The beds were super comfy and we all slept really well. The staff was attentive and friendly. I also saw a few of the other rooms that are in the process of being renovated. The style and comfort is just right. The prices are very resonable in comparison to other accommodations in the area too! We have family who lives in the area and we have stayed at a number of the hotels and motels nearby over the past few years, in both te higher end and budget price ranges. I have never liked a hotel in this area well enough to take the time to write a review until now. Going forward, this is the first place I will check for an available room when we're planning a trip to Grand Rapids. We are very happy with the accommodations we got for the price. We look forward to coming back for another visit and we will spread the word about Hotel Rapids!

Leaves a lot to be desired

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: Only stayed the night so I don't know about things to do. The location of the hotel is at the intersection of two highways, so it was noisy.
This place is not at all like the photo of the room that it shows. The hotel is old, bathroom very dated, carpet was dirty, no coffee maker in the room. I booked with them because they were cheaper than other hotels in the area, but I guess you get what you pay for. I have stayed in other hotels for $10.00 less per night that put this one to shame. I would not recommend this hotel.
