We won't be going back

For visiting family, the hotel location was ideal and it would have been an average hotel stay except for two reasons: First, an unpleasant odor came in through the air vents later in the evening. Although the smell remained only for about an hour, it definitely diminished the enjoyment of the room. Second, I had a minor allergic reaction to something in the room, most likely the detergent used on the linens. There are other hotels in the area and we will be choosing them for our next visit.

If there was a minus Star I would check it.

First of all we were 3 adults they had us in a King Bed. (All 3 names were on the reservation) Then they asked me for my creditcard when I got there,ok. My reservation was already paid for as a package and the hotel CHARGED ME AGAIN! When I went to the desk to ask them about it they shooed me away with "Oh well it will drop off in 3-4 business days" Ok now today with the pending charges there is an additional charge for $110.14 for ??? I will NEVER stay here AGAIN. Hotel Way over priced for what is.The weight room was locked.They gave us 2 cups and 3 decaf coffee packets? Not a good stay and those charges are still pending on my account!

Graduation

I stay at many hotels. The bed was very uncomfortable the carpet was sticky, not soft. I felt the pricd was high for the comfort of the hotel. Also needed to pay for parking which I do not remember it being stated on the web site. It was very close to things in East Lansing.

Stayed with family for a school function

We stayed here for a couple activities in the Lansing area. The service and the food both in the evening and breakfasts were all excellent. Food servers go out of their way to help. However even with that, the hotel rate seems a bit pricey. Also we're charged for parking on Sunday even though East Lansing allows free parking to anyone in that lot on Sunday. (??)

Good location, otherwise average.

I picked the Marriott because of its location - proximity to the MSU campus. The staff is polite and accommodating; and the room is clean and relatively spacious. But I find the bed a bit too soft for my taste. Also there is no mini-bar which i find strange (not that I normally use it). The best pat of the hotel is that it provides complimentary shuttle to the airport.

And the breakfast in the hotel is not bad. I did not have the buffet, instead ordered a la carte. The egg white frittata is a rare healthy treat !

Great Location

If you'res staying in East Lansing, the location doesn't get much better! Great walking distance to many bars, restaurants, shops, and campus. Only negative was the $7 they charge you for parking per day.

Overpriced but Convenient

I stayed at the East Lansing Marriott at University Place while I was in town for the Bar Examination. Its proximity to campus and restaurants was a plus. The rooms themselves were comfortable and relatively quiet, albeit nothing special. There was not much value in the $200+ per night rate, but was an overall good experience.
