Charged twice for same night stay.

Charged twice for same night, once by Travelocity for $119.21 and $84.75 by the hotel. We were part of a wedding group and were to be charged the reduced price of $84.75. Hotel staff said they would make the switch and cancel the Travelocity reservation.

Over charged

Pros: Location
Cons: Better management
Location: No Thanks
WE checked out on the 22nd as our original reservation indicated. We were charged for an additional night which we did not use. The room had a water leak through the ceiling which we reported and nothing was done. We had to walk through soggy carpet to get to the bathroom. Not pleasant. When we left the wallpaper was dripping off the wall because of the leak.

Nice and spacious

Pros: The size and location
Cons: Bed comfort
Location: Near everything
It was great for our family of 6 especially the price. The room was a bit dated and the beds were hard but again for the cost to stay here we can't complain. Breakfast was ok but the space was too tiny and not enough seating. Over all we would stay again.

Very cute and full of amenities!

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I was only here a very short time (arrived 11:30pm, left at 7:45am) but the cottage-esk look was very homey and I enjoyed my stay. There was a nice kitchenette and comfy living room. The complementary bag of microwave popcorn was a life saver. One of the lamp's bulbs were out and the toilet was leaky and ran periodically, but everything else was nice. Lots of breakfast options, close parking, and nice staff. The schedule of evening events/meals looked good for those staying longer than I did.

Wycked

My girlfriends and I went to East Lansing to see the musical Wycked. We stayed in a penthouse suite at this hotel and were amazed at how spacious it was. The full kitchen was equiped with everything we needed, including a dish washer. The beds were the most comfortable beds any of us had ever slept in during a hotel stay. Andrew, at the front counter gave us wonderful directions as well as dining suggestions.\nThere is even a working fireplace in the living area. And the hotel is pet friendly, we saw both small and large dogs.
