Dear Anonymous, I wanted to personally apologize for your experience at our hotel. We take reports such as this very seriously. As such we had a team of professionals inspect the room in question and I would be happy to share their findings with you. I regret that our customer service agent didn't follow up with you promptly as promised. This certainly doesn't represent the standards of service that we are used to, and I have personally taken the time to coach and council staff to insure we meet those standards, and will use that feedback to insure that we do better. We believe in making it right, and I hope we were able to do so when our team did reach out. Should you need further assistance or have any additional comments you can reach out to me directly.

Thanks so much for the feedback. We love our setting too...tucked away amongst the test farms and fields of MSU.....and don't forget Forest Acres Golf coarse right out our back door, yet just minutes away from all the excitement of MSU's central campus downtown Lansing and East Lansing have to offer. We appreciate your business and thanks for offering your feedback to the community. We'd love to welcome you back anytime your travels may bring you to the Capital Region.

Return Trip

2nd time to this hotel. It’s a nice hotel. The grounds are pretty, the staff is friendly, the rooms are big and I like the kitchenette. My room this time had a musty smell and the toilet seat was broken but one word to the front desk and it was resolved immediately. It’s not convenient to much if you don’t have a car though. There’s a restaurant on site, a little pricey, and a little market for limited food and snacks and forgotten toiletries which is nice. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
